Can't think of a cool, inexpensive, creative and personalised gift? Here's the problem solved - fridge magnets made from your (or other people's, if you have their password, but not recommended!) Instagram pictures. StickyGram.com is a UK website that allows you to make your own magnets choosing from nine or more Instagram pictures from your account.
Each StickyGram is 5cm x 5cm in size, or about the same size as they appear on your iPhone. They cost about 450 baht per one nine-picture sheet. The website also offers free international shipping, and you can expect to receive your cool magnets within a week or two. This means if you get cracking now, you are still in time for sending out personalised Christmas gifts.
Where the good burgers are
Burgers might not be a local favourite in Thailand, but when hunger strikes and the craving for something unhealthy kicks in, what's a better choice than a juicy burger served with hot fries? Here's a shortcut to get right to the good places and skip the less-celebrated ones: BangkokBurgerBlog.com - the first, and possibly only, blog in Thailand dedicated to burgers.
"I have made it my mission to scour the streets in search of burgers, good and bad. To search high and low from soi to soi for this simple food that brings comfort and satisfaction to weary travellers, homesick expats and hungry souls around the world. Will I find the best burger in Bangkok? Who knows, but I will have fun trying. No bun will be left unturned. No patty left behind," wrote the author of the blog, which started in April 2011. All the info is there - the restaurant's name and background, a score out of 10, description of the chosen burger, and The Verdict. Hundreds of burgers have been featured on this blog, making it a virtual Burger Hall of Fame.
