  • BOOK REVIEW

    Rich tapestry of Thai society

    02 Feb 2015 : All things considered, the 14 stories in the collection translated by Marcel Barang read like a list of social issues a Thai should be aware of: participating in last year's protests without genuine understanding and interest; having an affair with someone of an opposing political colour; the death of red-shirt poet Mai Nueng; violence in the South; hilltop villages; the move from local farms to factory farming. And Buddhism.

  • Fish that packs a punch

    01 Feb 2015 : Most of the salted fish we see in the market are saltwater types from the sea, and they tend to be extremely salty. The reason their producers make them this way is to allow them to be stored for long periods of time without spoiling. Many kinds of fish can be salted, each with its own flavour and texture. Given their variety it is not surprising that they are so popular.

  • Back to the future

    01 Feb 2015 : Nostalgia apparently is what it used to be. With new Star Wars and Mad Max films coming, AC/DC and Giorgio Moroder releasing albums, and K-pop hairstyles that look like A Flock of Seagulls, you could be forgiven for feeling like Marty McFly stepping out of the DeLorean in Back to the Future II.
