Update by Thanaphon Paewsoongnern

Thailand resumes normal life while wearing face masks still compulsory

The 5th round of business resumption started on Wednesday and resulted in the restoration of normal life but people still have to protect themselves from possible infection.



Travel Tourism

 Coins of the Realm

Auction conducted with open doors

A gold one Baht bullet coin, Pod Duang, sold in 2009 for Baht 300,000 was offered with a starting price of Baht 300,000. This time the coin was sold for Baht 560,000. It seems like the interest for collecting bullet coins is increasing. Bullet coins were used in Thailand for more than 600 years and are an important part of Thai history. The last bullet coins were produced in 1886, except for a few commemorative issues. They could be exchanged for flat coins until 1908.


Business News

Shopping malls in Bangkok organize big discounts festival to boost domestic consumption

The Mall Group has organized a shopping festival offering discounts of up to 90 percent at six of its locations, intended to stimulate the economy weighed down by the COVID-19 pandemic


 Life with Bingo

How to get through 2 weeks of self quarantine

Bingo and friends have been busy looking for ways to cope with the big lock down!

Playing twister was probably not a good idea, too much contact and too many paws!


 Khun Ocha's Cookbook

You can be a Cordon Bleu chef with a chicken

Chicken “Cordon Bleu” is a satisfying dish for both the cook and the diners, though the chicken might have other ideas.  “Cordon bleu” comes from L’Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint Esprit, a 1578 AD elite group of French knights.  The group became known for their extravagant and luxurious banquets, known as “cordon bleu” (blue ribbon). 


Doctor's Consultation

Exercise for Health. Does that include sexercise?

Probably the commonest advice a doctor gives is to lose weight and get some exercise. Does that ring a bell in your memory? Was that part of the advice after your annual physical check-up?



Ansel Adams – lest we forget!

The famous American photographer Ansel Adams has been dead for 24 years, but his influence on photography as an “art form” will probably be with us forever. Particularly Black and White, which is rapidly reaching “art” status all the time.


Classical Connections     Wine World

Being Stubborn

Do you ever find that sometimes a melody drifts into your mind without invitation? This happens to me quite often and sometimes I don’t even recognise it. Recently I heard an orchestra playing a short phrase in my mind. It was only two bars of six notes and I could recall nothing else. After several days of musical agony, I wrote down the phrase and emailed it to some musical friends.


The Green and Pleasant Land

Hush Heath vineyard in Kent.

In 2002, the British Broadcasting Corporation organized a poll to find out who were considered the greatest British people who ever lived. You can probably guess a few of them yourself. It turned out that William Blake, the slightly eccentric English poet and painter was placed at Number 38. If these things interest you, I shall leave you to find out who the others were but sadly, I am not among them.



Heart to Heart  

Finding the “good” girls

Dear Hillary,

I have to laugh at all your letter writers, wondering if they have found THE ONE, when they should start looking at themselves to see if they would be THE ONE for any of the women around here. I’m not talking about the girls from the bars, who are only there for one thing – money, while the blokes are also there for one thing – sex.
