By around noon Thailand time, we should know whether Britons have chosen the status quo or an option seen as inconceivable not long ago.

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 29/07/2016

    » For the past several years, I've spent a lot of time thinking about why we have to work the way we do. Why do we need to be in the same place from 9-5 for five days a week to do our jobs, when we could be anywhere in the world and still deliver exactly the same output? Why shouldn't we take on inspiring new projects whenever we want and work the hours that suit us?

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 26/08/2016

    » I just got back from a business trip to Yogyakarta last week, and I feel so lucky to have been born in Thailand. It's not because Yogyakarta -- everyone calls it Jogja -- is not a pleasant town, but because its people have to face so many challenges.

    » I happened to be at an Apple store in the US when the iPhone 7 was launched. The store was certainly one of the busiest in town that day. I was there for an iPad, which was lucky because almost immediately after the new iPhones went on sale, they sold out.

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 25/11/2016

    » Whether you love him or not, Donald Trump is now the president-elect of the United States -- against all odds. Against all the experts and the pollsters, against the establishment, against the mainstream media, and even against his own political party, Mr Trump won the election on Nov 8 and got himself into the White House. What is the secret to this man's success?

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 30/12/2016

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 27/01/2017

    » The great thing about the new year is that there is more that one celebration to look forward to. Chinese New Year starts tomorrow and the Thai New Year is coming in April. So if you haven't made -- or kept -- any new year resolutions, there is still a chance to start over.

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 24/02/2017

    » I started investing in the stock market a long time ago and I have been through many ups and downs of stock market cycles. Given the experience, I am generally quite resilient when it comes to stock market crashes. In the nearly 10 years since the subprime crisis in 2008, the Thai stock market has performed very well. In fact, if you had been investing in Thai equities since then, you would have received a total return including dividends much higher than if you had invested in any other neighbouring countries. Over the past year alone, the SET index has gone up 22.6%.

    » Happiness is a state of mind. It can also be a place. So where do happy people live? The UN answered this question in its World Happiness Report released last week to celebrate the International Day of Happiness on March 20.
