    » Our daily occurrences may seem normal for us the locals because, well, we see them everyday. But something in Thailand can be so unique that may puzzle the visitors. Being a good host that I am, I would like to give some examples of our unique quirks to help our visitors prepared for their stay in Thailand.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 07/09/2018

    » Everyone is allowed to have his/her off days. Maybe your presentation isn't as well received as you hoped it would be. You may forget your boss coffee. Or have a major writer's block that won't budge an inch like a traffic congestion on Vibhavadi Rangsit Road during an evening heavy rain (guilty).

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 31/08/2018

    » Given various frustrating incidents regarding the BTS of late, I think it's time for an update on skytrain signs to truly reflect the real commuter experience. Here are a few suggestions that you may painfully agree with. Some of them aren't the BTS' faults, though. g


    11 things to do while being stuck in the traffic

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 24/08/2018

    » PM Prayut Chan-o-cha recently tasked relevant agencies to ease traffic congestion in Bangkok and expects to see some improvement in three months. If any government can solve this perennial problem, I think it'll be his Cabinet since he can always invoke S44 magic.

    » PM Prayut Chan-o-cha recently made a bold claim that he reads more than 800 lines a day in comparison to, according to him, the average Thai who reads only eight lines a year. Realising what an avid reader he is, I would like to recommend more books that he should consider adding to his reading list to further enrich his intellectual life.
