    Thailand only

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 14/09/2018

    » 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.

    Some cheer-you-up for those days

    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).

    Farmer brothers

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

    » Mitdanai "Port" and Phundanai "Peat" Sathavonmanee co-founded CORO FIELD (fb.com/corofieldTH), a Japanese-style agro-tourist destination in Ratchaburi, in 2015. Since then, the brothers have branched out with a café in Esplanade Ratchada and a dessert shop in CentralWorld while Coro Field thrives as an example of what agriculture 4.0 looks like. We talked to them about their green ambition to plant a seed for modern farming while helping Thai farmers.

    If signs on BTS were brutally honest

    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

    Jiggly joy

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

    » As you may already know, Siam Paragon is a playground for foodies -- the ground floor and fourth floor to be more specific -- and a new Japanese import just made itself home on Paragon's street level. With 54 branches in Japan, Osaka-born Gram Cafe & Pancakes (stylised as gram cafe&pancakes) is the latest entry that locals and tourists alike are queuing up for. Such is the life in Bangkok whenever famous food import lands on our soil.

    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. Think about it, people, he can order car owners to drive only on even or odd days, depending on their licence plate numbers.

Hopefully, they capture the funny side of Thai Mother's Day and warm your heart a little. It's okay to be a softie sometimes, people. Happy Mother's Day, everyone!

    Six books to add to PM's reading list

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 03/08/2018

    » 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. At his speed, I'm sure he will be able to finish them in no time, too.

    A journey from farm to table

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 03/08/2018

    » Jim Ophorst marries fine dining with farm-to-table as chef de cuisine at PRU restaurant (prurestaurant.com), Trisara Phuket. Originally from the Netherlands, Orphost is hands-on in sourcing his ingredients and wants to show off the natural vibrancy of local flavours through multiple-course dinners. We spoke to Ophorst about his culinary journey and his thoughts on The Michelin Guide Bangkok, Phuket, and Phang-nga 2019, to be published later this year.

    Stories that got blown out of proportion, thanks to social media

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/07/2018

    » While I appreciate social media for being a multi-faceted tool for keeping up with friends (and frenemies), indulging in endless cat videos, stalking beautiful strangers and showing off what I ate or where I stayed (I'm only human), it's also an amplifier for some stories that probably don't need the attention of the entire country. Not sure what I'm getting at? Here are a few stories that, IMHO, are of little value, but, thanks to social media, we are drawn to care about.
