    Past grandeur lives on

    Life, Published on 25/01/2012

    » Imagine yourself on a rice barge or steamboat chugging along the River of Kings, intermittently stopping off at the homes of a prince, a nobleman and a merchant, with the glistening spires of the Grand Palace and Wat Arun providing the backdrop for a fascinating journey back to old Siam. On Saturday, the much anticipated annual home and garden fundraising event organised by the Soroptimist International Club of Dusit is set to take guests on such a journey. The tour will offer a rare opportunity to experience the past grandeur of the rarely visited Chakrabongse Villa, the home of Prince Chakrabongse, son of Rama V; the Praya Palazzo, originally a riverside home of a nobleman at the court of Siam; plus the Chinese courtyard home of the Wanglee family _ all steeped in history and evocative of old Siam.

    Parallel ambitions

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 25/01/2012

    » We wish them the best of luck, and we pray Hua Hin International Film Festival won't turn out to be a lemon. A month ago hardly anybody had heard about this brand-new event, and now those who've heard about it are wondering if they'll take the trouble of making a trip down to the seaside town to watch the films. Our advise is, if the sky is blue and you have nothing else to do (and if you want to forsake the Bangkok Experimental Film Festival that will also happen this weekend) just go for the fun of it. Worst case, you can always decamp to the beach, or one of the seafood joints in Khao Takieb.

    The naked Proof

    Life, Onsiri Pravattiyagul, Published on 25/01/2012

    » Of late, there's been a fair share of diverse, interesting international bands playing Bangkok, rather than the usual stadium acts or veteran performers who are on their last world tour... for the 10th time. The Naked and Famous were the latest in line to fulfil the wet dreams of all hipsters when they rolled into town last week.

    Therapy as art, and vice versa

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 25/01/2012

    » Growing up in this country, I often heard people say that Thais don't go to psychiatrists to sort out their problems; they go to fortune-tellers. Later, while I was living in the West, I saw many individuals running to counsellors and therapists to untangle the knots and smooth out the bumps in their lives.

    Recycled beauty

    Life, Sakul Intakul, Published on 25/01/2012

    » The planet we call Earth is always recycling itself, whether we realise it or not. Young leaves unfold, perform their faithful "green" duty, become old and yellow, fall, and decompose. Soon all the particles that once were parts of those leaves would reassemble and re-emerge into this planet anew by taking fresh new forms with new duties. These never-ending cycles of renewal make this planet always new, always fresh, young and exciting.

    Beating back water deficiency

    Life, Noko, Published on 25/01/2012

    » Drinking eight glasses of water daily can be a difficult thing to do for busy urbanites, and as a result the skin may also become thirsty and suffer from the dehydration. In addition, it faces extreme environments, from being outdoor in the sun then indoor under air-conditioning, to make the matter even worse. Coupled with biological ageing, the water deficiency becomes a bigger problem that welcomes wrinkles to settle on the skin.
