    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 18/01/2019

    » Refill Station (fb.com/refillstationbkk) is the brainchild of Supatchaya "Ann" Techachoochert, alternative energy engineer Chanin "Nammon" Srisuman and co-founder of Better Moon cafe Papawee "Pear" Pongthanavaranon.

    Into the fog with memes

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 18/01/2019

    » I'm sure you're painfully aware of the smog that blankets Bangkok and its adjoining provinces (through your nose, eyes and throats), and have already learned from the experts on how to protect yourself from the harmful effects of PM2.5 particulate matter that has shrouded our city. There's no point in shedding anymore light on these topics, so here I offer another kind of relief -- humour through a few smog-inspired memes to get you through these foggy days. Take a deep breath (while wearing an N95 mask) people, this too shall pass.

    Fill 'em Up

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 11/01/2019

    » The war on plastic has been waged in Thailand with plans to do away with single-use plastics by 2022 and single-use plastic bottles and straws by 2025. It's been a long time coming and is a little way away, but we're hoping this change sticks. A few days ago, I bought stuff from a Tesco Lotus Express and they used a paper bag -- change is afoot, people. Instead of being cynical and wondering why they couldn't ban plastic sooner, we can choose to be part of the solution now. The concept of refill stations or refilleries is growing in Europe and North America. It's basically a grocery store where you take your own containers to fill them up, which drastically lowers plastic waste. Think of all the plastic you throw away after using detergents and soaps. Fortunately, a number of refill stations have also been popping up around the Kingdom, providing us an opportunity to cut plastic use. Even better, these places are spread out all over Bangkok and two are in Chiang Mai so there's no excuse not to avail of their environmental-friendly services. Get your containers ready -- Guru's about to get eco-friendly up in here.

    Friendly neighbourhood cafe

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 11/01/2019

    » Having opened in August last year, About White Cafe & Bistro is part of the hip hub of creativity and renovated spaces of all things art and cuisine in the Charoen Krung area. Living up to its name, the small cafe evokes all things white from its bright white light neon sign hung on the white-tiled walls to the decor and furniture. You can sit to face the wide windows and look at the greenery outside or sit outside in an urban-garden setting.

    A Uniformed Presence

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 11/01/2019

    » Should schools still impose uniform on students? Earlier this week, pictures of students at Bangkok Christian College wearing their choices of attire to school were widely spread online. Kudos to the school for trying out a new approach to encourage student creativity and self-expression. Special shout out to the boy who wore Rillakuma onesie and the other one with a turban.
