    » Over a year after its opening, Chulalongkorn Centenary Park is receiving more visitors as well as attention from names like the World Economic Forum, TED, The Guardian and Property Guru Asia. Built to commemorate the university's 100th anniversary by giving back to society, unlike other public parks the 28 rai plot of land -- more than 23 million baht worth of land -- wasn't made simply for people to take a stroll, have a picnic or ride a bike. With a water-retention pond, underground water-drainage system and rain garden, the park is a prime example of tackling urban climate change. More importantly, it shows how a green space can serve as more than just another pretty-but-profitless park.

    The app that makes you a more patient patient

    Life, Nanticha Ocharoenchai, Published on 24/10/2018

    » Your head is aching and your legs are too. You limp over to the reception of the hospital and register your name. You're given directions to the department, a walk straight up, a turn to the right, two floors up the elevator, turn right again, and it's among the 13 rooms lining the hallway. Your head is now throbbing but you finally manage to hobble all the way there and take a place in the queue. You have a seat and wait with other patients. Only 182 people more to go.
