Update by Thanaphon Paewsoongnern

July, the season of rafting, sightseeing, candle festivals and Buddhist Lent in Thailand

So many memorable and enjoyable experiences are waiting for you in the month of July in Thailand. 



Travel Tourism

TAT language training prepares Thai tourism personnel for post-COVID-19 era

Online Spanish and Portuguese lessons from Chulalongkorn and Thammasat Universities.


 Coins of the Realm

Successful auction in Hong Kong

In these difficult times coin shows and auctions are often postponed or cancelled. Some coin auctions are successfully conducted behind closed doors. In 1978, when I started with coin and banknote auctions in Oslo, Norway, there were three options to bid. Mail bids, telephone bids and personally attending the auction. Today professional auction companies have the three mentioned options, but in addition they have Internet Absentee or Proxy Bidding, Email, Fax and iBid Live bidding.

 Life with Bingo

How to get through 2 weeks of self quarantine

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


 Khun Ocha's Cookbook

Asian BBQ Prawns

Throw another prawn on the Barbie, as the Aussies would say.  Prawns are a favored item for BBQ’s and this is a quick and easy recipe to produce some lip-smacking BBQ prawns.  The important factor is the preparation of the prawns.  Though thawed prawns can be used, it is better to use fresh ones.  Get good medium to large sized ones and remove the heads, tails and shell.  Gently cut the prawn down the back and remove the vein.


Doctor's Consultation

What is chicken pox?

Chicken pox is a common disease caused by the varicella zoster virus which is a member of the herpes virus family. It is very contagious and usually occurs during childhood. Adults can get the disease if they did not have it in childhood.



Enjoying f15 stops

Shutter speeds are an inherent part of photography and the simplest f stop uses the setting 1/15th shutter speed. Almost every camera ever made has a setting called “15” which stands for 1/155th of a second.


Classical Connections     Wine World

Unwanted Serenades

Humperdinck c.1894.

When I’m looking for a restaurant in an unfamiliar place, I tend to avoid those that are completely empty. Another reason to stay away is the ominous sight of a piano or other musical instrument awaiting attention. You see, as far as I am concerned, background music and especially “live” background music is usually nothing more than a pointless distraction.


Clochemerle Country

Gamay grapes on the vine.

If you’re over a certain age, you may recall the French satirical novel Clochemerle. It was written by Gabriel Chevallier and first published in 1934 though the English translation didn’t appear until some years later.



Heart to Heart  

Social distancing

Dear Hillary,

With the distancing rules where you can’t even sit next to someone, what will this do to the baht bus business? Normally they seem to pack about 20 people in one bus to give them enough revenue, but what are they going to do with only 10? However there is something even more important – what do you do for the rumpy pumpy thing? You can’t do that 2 meters apart, can you? Or is this some conspiracy plot to limit the number of babies born in 2021?

When NASA sends astronauts to the surface of the Moon in 2024, it will be the first time outside of watching historical footage most people witness humans walking on another planetary body. Building on these footsteps, future robotic and human explorers will put in place infrastructure for a long-term sustainable presence on the Moon.
