    » A creaky industrial elevator lit in red slowly brought us up to the plane's entrance. Taken a first step inside the refurbished aircraft that now doubles as a restaurant inside ChangChui Creative Park, it was like being transported into a dystopian world to taste a meal after doomsday.

The exhibition is organised by the Japan Foundation Bangkok and Chang Chui, with the support from the Embassy of Japan and the Japanese Association in Thailand.

    » Thai people are considerably kind. We like making merit to help unfortunate souls. And especially in an era when everyone can easily connect through social media, the ways of merit-making have changed and expanded even further. From previously making physical donations at temples and charities, people now reach out to help individuals -- many times a stranger -- they see online. Pictures of sick dogs, cats, humans, or even a call for blood donations appear on our Facebook feeds often on a weekly basis. The plea for help -- coupled with touching stories and photos -- always tugs at our heartstrings. And it doesn't take long for many of us to lend a helping hand, mostly through making a swift donation to help with the cause.

    » Seventy years are roughly the span of a human's lifetime. And in those decades, one takes a step, learns and grows up with great friends who are always there with a helping hand.

    Time to break free

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 01/08/2019

    » The ability to work remotely has become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more professionals are moving away from the traditional office environment. Many now opt to take their work on the go, choosing their own preferred space to work in, which could be their home, co-working space, coffee shop, beach, mountain, abroad -- essentially anywhere. The idea is that they're no longer confined to a single location, like their main office. No more 9-to-5 working routine at an office cubicle.

    The right to title change

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 29/07/2019

Each person would probably reply differently depending on personal experiences they've had navigating their daily lives. But there remains a common theme of discrimination and prejudice -- found both at a personal and legal level -- that all of them face regardless of where or who they are in this society.
