Halloween celebrations

Schools all over Thailand are spooking it up today

Schools even have a legitimate excuse for celebrating Halloween, because it is covered in the Thai MoE's foreign language curriculum - ‘students should be aware of foreign cultures and festivals.'


What's cooking, teacher?

The amazing characteristics and flavors of Thai food

The food most Thai people eat everyday reflects the simple, labor- intensive lifestyle of the paddy fields. Many families cook in an outside kitchen and Thais only consider a meal a meal if it is served with rice.


Thailand: PC free haven or politically incorrect harbour?

Isn't Thailand's penchant for the inappropriate part of its appeal?

What's in a nickname?

Boom, Bomb and Bam Bam don't like Beer and Porn

The forgotten people

Perhaps it's too easy to ignore the plight of the city's homeless?

Stroll along any sois and it is not uncommon at all to see men, wild hair unwashed, shoeless and half-naked, scavenge in overflowing bins. Drug addicts, unfortunate immigrants or just plain poor, it is hard to tell, but pitiful all the same.
