    People Who Do Worse Jobs Than You

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/03/2019

    » At the risk of sounding like a Debbie Downer (or should I say Sad Somchai), there may be days when we question whether we're doing well or enough at our jobs e.g. making a typo and struggling to write something relevant and fun on a weekly basis. And once that feeling takes over, you can console yourself by looking for people who're at worse at their jobs compared to you, automatically patting yourself on the back. The good news is that you don't have to look far -- and I've done that for you, dear reader. These examples should leave you thinking, "I'm not that bad."

    » The campaign posters are EVERYWHERE. You either dodge them while navigating your way on a Bangkok sidewalk (of lack thereof it) or scroll down your Facebook newsfeed and see like seven of them without even trying.


    Thai-style Maths Problems

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 01/03/2019

    » How good are you with numbers, dear readers? Let's put you to the test in this mathematics quiz which -- and I can't state the following sentence strongly enough -- has not been inspired by any real-life incidents. (Cough cough cough, sorry almost choked there!) They are completely fictional, purely for your entertainment. The answers are at the end. No cheating!


    Crossword Puzzle: Thai PM Candidates Edition

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 22/02/2019

    » As the March 24 election nears, the number of opinion polls have increased. On Sunday, one poll in particular caught my eyes. Super Poll announced the result of a survey, which I unofficially translate to "The Public’s Concern During Election Season". What made this poll stand out is that when they asked people about their specs for PM candidates, they use cryptic descriptions such as "Man in his 50s. Former leader of this country with high position" and "Man in his 40s. Former exec. A political activist." Instead of simply using their actual names like other polls? They did that to avoid violating any election rules, perhaps.

Here are some of the most memorable posters in the upcoming election that I spotted on the street and online.

    Thai Proverbs: 2019 Edition

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 01/02/2019

    » New words and verbal expressions are born every day yet our classic proverbs remain unchanged with references that are dated or we can no longer relate to. I’ll say it’s time to give classic proverbs a makeover with contemporary references. Some meanings are changed, by the way. Shall we give this a try?
