    » As the boxing trainer agreed to a photograph and began to pose formidably in front of me in the gym, I managed to take only two shots. He looked cool with his well-built body, lean muscles and dragon tattoo crawling from his shoulder to his right elbow.

    » The three men who took refuge at Sanam Luang were in deep sleep, probably after a long day's tough work. They were among the countless number of vagabonds who had travelled far from home and family to search for jobs in the capital, and Sanam Luang was an ideal home away from home.

When it opened in 1984 it was a monastery in the middle of nowhere, but now it has become a popular place for faithful followers to practise vipassana.

    » A few weeks ago, I had a chance to visit Ayutthaya province with my family. It's good to see the flood-ravaged province has recovered from last year's disaster. Traces of damage can still be seen at some historical places, but many seem to have returned to normal.

    » As I was trying to take a shot of this man working in the Mae Klong delta in Samut Songkhram province, I learned something new: extracting fish from a river is a lot harder than picking them up in the market; to be successful, one needs to have a very good sense of balance and be adept at throwing a net.
