    Where tea & History entwine

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 06/08/2013

    » Even nine cups of tea a day is still considered a bit much for the typical Brit, but any less would make it an "unsatisfactory tea-drinking day" for Stephen Twining. For the 10th generation descendant of a centuries-old business family, Twinings of London, which has taken part in solidifying tea as a cultural icon of the English, a day gone by without a cuppa leaves him a tad queasy.


    The unbreakable brotherhood

    Life, Arusa Pisuthipan, Published on 25/06/2013

    » The clock said it was nearly evening prayer time for Chiang Mai's At-Taqwa community. Women rushed home while men of all ages gathered at the mosque. The sun was going down yet everybody's spirit was uplifted as they paid respect to Allah.

    » We open the doors to sweet symphonic music, which sets our mood for the guided tour of the exhibition. On entering the new section of Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles (QSMT) _ the main space has been open to the public since May last year as a learning centre about textiles _ we had to pinch ourselves that we hadn't walked into the Mad Hatter's tea party.


    Home is where the help is

    Life, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 21/05/2013

    » The first thing that greets an outsider who steps into the small patch of garden under Saphan Phut (Memorial Bridge) is a strong stench of urine. Male underwear is strewn carelessly on the ground, while a toddler plays by himself _ not in a crib, but in a battered foam box. There is no roof. There is no toilet. There is no furniture except for a few floor mats.

    Light it up

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 28/05/2013

    » From a quick glance, the Moken sea gypsy community at Moo Koh Surin's Ao Bon, off the southern coast of Phangnga province, seemed just as it had always been over the years; rows of raised huts are set right at the shoreline, men are busy with their boats, women (some topless) are engrossed in their handicraft work and little kids run around.

    » 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. It is also the city of David Bowie _ the man whose persona seems to tease and provoke the boundaries of gender and whose five-decade career is one of the most spectacular in the music industry.


    Wisdom behind the pearls

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 10/04/2013

    » Of all exquisite gems, pearls stand out, yet are often underestimated. While other precious rocks, from diamonds to rubies, need man and machine to turn them into sparkling pieces of jewellery, a perfectly round and lustrous pearl is a work of art solely created by nature.

    Cute and culturally right on

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 08/03/2013

    » As someone who's always on the hunt for novel souvenirs of Thailand to give friends of mine living abroad, I tend to have my eyes peeled for objects of a more distinctive character. So many mass-produced "Thai" products feature elephants that the motif has been seriously done to death. Or else they're plastered with enough gold paint/dye to make any self-possessed local roll her/his eyes in exasperation.
