26 May 2013 : Greetings from Priceless Sydney, in the glorious island nation of Australia. That's right, dear reader. None of the parochial cheap digs at Thai culture that normally pepper this column, as your correspondent writes from his salubrious hotel room in the heart of Priceless Sydney.
26 May 2013 : Cats are usually the neatest of animals. Before they defecate, they dig up some ground so that they can bury it afterwards. But a stray cat is posing a problem to Ms Gekimm, who wrote: "I need to ask you if a cat's droppings will harm my potted plants and how to keep the cat away. A stray cat has been doing its job on my rather big pot. I have applied vinegar trying to rid the scent so he/she will not come back, with no success. I used to put out Clorox in London, but I am afraid it will kill my plants. Can you advise me please?"
08 May 2013 : Interested English speakers are invited to special events with a Western bhikkhuni (female monk) ordained in the Tibetan tradition.
08 May 2013 : Ethnic Karen children pose as they arrived yesterday to join a hilltribe gathering at the Royal Plaza yesterday. A hilltribe cultural show festival was staged and broadcast live, with the aim of sharing their tradition with viewers nationwide as well as to wish for the strong health of HM the King.
07 May 2013 : Plai Thong Kham, a 30-day-old elephant at Suan Samphran Crocodile Farm in Nakhon Pathom, still hasn't quite got the hang of this drinking business, by the look of his dribbling. Zookeepers spray water two to three times a day to keep the animals' temperatures down as the hot season continues.
07 May 2013 : Reality show star Kim Kardashian got a "vampire facelift" on a recent episode of her Kourtney And Kim Take Miami programme. Anna Friel is another of the many celebrities who swear by the vampire facelift. And, oh my, who can deny, she is one beautiful woman whose youthful face belies her years. A free vampire facelift voucher was also gifted to all Oscar attendees in their goody bags this year. The term vampire facelift is hot in Hollywood at the moment. What is the hype about it and do we have it here in Thailand?
07 May 2013 : The interview with Zen master and Buddhist icon Thich Nhat Hanh was unique. He did not impart his message through words, but principally through his being and interaction with the interviewer.
07 May 2013 : At first glance, a basic accessory like a pair of sunglasses really has no reason to be expensive _ and to be a health-related issue worthy of ophthalmological concern. How much can two small dark plates and a simple frame cost, and how detrimental can a pair of poor quality sunglasses be to your eyes?
06 May 2013 : A woman walks past a giant wall photograph which forms part of German photographer Ralf Tooten's "RCA: Ratchaburi Construction Workers Open Air Portraits" exhibition. The works on show at public sites around the city of Ratchaburi _ on a bridge's pillars, on facades of shophouses and walls by the road _ are larger-than-life pictures of construction workers. Curated by Wasinburee Supanichvoraparch, the exhibition runs until July 30.
05 May 2013 : Next week I embark on a trip to Australia to speak at a Thai roadshow. I am excited at the prospect of passing on my sporadically keen observances of the Thai way of life to innocent Australians.
05 May 2013 : I don't remember now if I read or heard from someone many years ago that Cassia fistula, known in Thai as ratchapruek, has a mutant strain with white flowers. Cassia fistula is the Thai national tree and produces the national flower and is a familiar sight along Bangkok's streets and provincial roads, as well as in public parks and private gardens throughout the country. However despite how ubiquitous the tree, is until recently I had never seen one with white flowers. Once, passing through Lop Buri while travelling to Phetchabun, I saw a tree whose flowers were a few shades lighter than most, but they were still yellow, not white.
05 May 2013 : These cats are still young and very friendly. They were born or dumped at a local temple. They have been neutered. They love being with people and would make good companions.
