    Monsoon tales

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 13/07/2018

    » While the scorching heat of Thailand will always be around, we're now into the season where that would be alleviated with a "bit" of rainfall. Yes, it's rainy season in Thailand, which means an increase in picky taxi drivers, wet floors on the BTS and Minesweeper-like pavements that could spew dirty water on you when you step on them. Despite the great inconvenience it causes, it also results in great stories that shouldn't just be kept to ourselves. Having said that, we asked you, our dear readers, what experiences you've had in the torrential downpour season, and as always, you didn't disappoint. Here are our faves.

    Life in plastic

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 22/06/2018

    » Earlier this month, a whale was found dead in the southern province of Songkhla after coughing up more than 80 (count 'em! 80!) pieces of plastic bags. We pay the price for being heavy users of single-use plastic items at the cost of a life of one poor, innocent mammal that made national and international headlines around the world. It's a huge wake-up call for us to take immediate action and change our behaviour with the way we do away with our rubbish.

    Smart up

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 27/04/2018

    » Here at GURU, we love our smartphones.

    Wet 'n' Wild!

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 13/04/2018

    » Today is the first day of Songkran and we know what you're thinking: "Where should I celebrate the Thai New Year for some fun-soaked festivities?". There are tonnes of places where you can spray water and dab some scented powder on to others, or if staying dry is your thing, there are events dedicated to that, too. Songkran doesn't have to be just attending the countless EDM parties during these busy days (you can check a handful of them in the parties section of listings), these events are can be enjoyed by just about anybody. So grab your water guns and don some waterproof clothes (or why not don some traditional Thai outfits as that's what's all the rage this year), wannee pen wan Songkran!

    Going green

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 22/03/2018

    » T  he air in Bangkok has been horrendous these past couple of months and we can’t help but feel like we’re basically inhaling exhaust fumes. The difference in air quality is so evident that when you go to another country and take a huge whiff of oxygen, you actually get a bit of a high because the air is cleaner than what you’re usually used to. We can go on complaining, something you all know we’re really good at, or we can find ways to be part of the solution instead of being whiny toddlers. These businesses are providing us the opportunity to do just that.
