    Steel yourself

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 27/06/2013

    » At first, I was afraid. I was petrified. No, I'm not singing Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. I'm merely thinking of the scene in Man Of Steel, with the young Clark Kent hiding his true self in the classroom.

    The beaten tracks

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 04/07/2013

    » Every time I call my mother, she never fails to try to convince me to consider moving back to our peaceful home town in Phatthalung. She believes that if you are not strong enough physically, spiritually and financially, Bangkok is going to eat you alive. I told her that after the high-profile murder case of Akeyuth Anchanbutr, the image of our city _ where the body was buried _ may not be as "peaceful" as before. I also said my love of Bangkok is too deep and that I am not going to move away from this city any time soon.

His honesty was clear in his words, and the Tak native's accent is clear. His frankness, however, shows even more in the photographs now on show at Kathmandu Photo Gallery.

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 30/05/2013

    » Everybody deserves an escape, and my recent annual leave took me to London, a city where men know how to wear a suit with style.
