    Our age of anxiety

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 03/04/2017

    » We are living in probably one of the most chaotic times in history. Terrorism, crime and the breakdown of the family unit are at all-time highs. These are just a fraction of the issues we're bombarded with daily, causing our emotional health to suffer. The need to keep tabs on our mental health should be prioritised if we desire to live life to its fullest.

    Humanity found in midst of strife

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 19/12/2016

    » Two more weeks left before 2016 draws to a close. And am I glad. Across the board, we have observed an escalation in violent crimes, political strife and natural disasters, with most economies performing below par. Let's face it, the bleak overall situation led to an emotional roller coaster for most during the year.

    Anger management needed to curb youth violence

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 23/05/2016

    » Firearms and youth violence has once again consumed innocent lives. It has become a worrisome social ill that continues to sporadically surface from time to time, with no signs of abating. In most cases, it is found that the perpetrators were either on drugs or under the influence. Their vicious acts are either documented on closed-circuit television or put on social media after a witness takes a video clip.

    Business fights and disabled rights

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 29/01/2016

    » A labour report last week stating that more than 40 local firms were being taken to task by the law for declining to assist the disabled got me concerned over the lack of empathy some entrepreneurs have towards one of the most marginalised groups in society. The report went on to say assets of 44 companies could be foreclosed and sold to raise money, which would go into the Disabled Works Fund because the businesses in question refused to contribute to the fund, set up to raise the quality of life of the disabled in Thailand. The firms were warned to pay up but refused.

    New year, new you

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 07/01/2016

    » Keeping New Year's resolutions has always been a struggle for me. Hardly a week into 2016, history seems to have repeated itself. Bad habits of bingeing on chocolates and sleeping late resurfaced as quickly as I had made my promise to turn over a new leaf.

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 23/10/2015

    » The utter mayhem that unfolded a few weeks ago in the vicinity of Phuket's Thalang police station between officers and disgruntled residents who accused them of causing the death of two young drug suspects saw the type of carnage we have not seen in a while.

    Stronger together

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 20/08/2015

    » Nepal, one of the world's poorest countries, was hit by two massive earthquakes that left a trail of destruction in April. Instead of opting to become despondent over the incident, the Nepali people seem to have banded together to survive the ordeal in a rather gallant manner. The disaster maimed, killed and left thousands homeless. Through the misfortune, however, locals have united, putting their neighbours' needs before their own. This is what I experienced during a recent trip to Nepal, home to Mount Everest.

    The ongoing fight for children's rights

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 17/06/2015

    » One need not look too far to realise that a Thai child's basic right to life and development is violated daily. Physical and emotional abuse aside, vulnerable children are also easy prey to unscrupulous sex offenders and traffickers.
