Posted on May 13, 2012 by Toothpicker

My Thai friends have been urging me to visit Chiang Mai for a long time as they know that I have an interest in arts and crafts. I am not sure why it has taken me so long to make this trip, but after spending only 2 nights here, I realised that [...]

Sukhothai historical park

Posted on May 9, 2012 by Toothpicker

If I have to choose the most wonderful and sustainable airport in the world, Sukhothai airport would be on the top of my list ( see below)! It is privately owned by Bangkok airways and serves only two arrivals from Bangkok daily. Not only it is beautifully designed in traditional Thai style [...]

Si Satchanalai historical park

Posted on May 7, 2012 by Toothpicker

Si Satchanalai historical park is a World Heritage site and the former vassal town of Sukhothai, though it is not as popular as the Sukhothai historical park. Located in the northern part of the Sukhothai province, travel information and transport to this park is surprisingly limited. Hence I had to prearrange a [...]

Giant art work outside of the Bangkok art & culture center
 
If you are interested in the art and cultural side of Bangkok, it is best to pick up the monthly guide, Bangkok art map, where you will find listings of the art and photography exhibitions in town. Since I didn't have much [...]

Slow pace in old Bangkok

Posted on April 28, 2012 by Toothpicker

Siesta time!
 
Seeking 'slowness' in the fast-paced culture and lifestyle we live in today is not easy. It is also becoming more widespread as you can see this in most big cities around the world ( just watch the locals when you take public transport and you will know what I mean). Luckily [...]

Slow pace in Bangkok... Baan Pra Nond

Posted on April 28, 2012 by Toothpicker

I can't say that Bangkok is on my top 10 favourite cities' list, but it certainly has its charm despite the chaos, pollution and notorious traffic jams. I was meant to visit Bangkok in October for the gift and furniture trade fair, but had to cancel at the last minute because of [...]

Tango moments

Tango al fresco at Regents Park
 
You don't have to be a tango dancer to appreciate this sensual and elegant dance, and I am talking about Argentinian tango, not the dramatic ballroom or 'Strictly come dancing' style. A lot of people get confused with the two as they still have this idea of [...]

Ttable office & Korean stationery

Posted on April 13, 2012 by Toothpicker

As a huge fan of Japanese design and stationery, I was quite oblivious to Korean stationery until my first visit to Seoul two years ago. What I did not expect was to see so many independent stationery shops, occupying prime locations and in big shopping malls. This is quite rare to see [...]

Walking in Cornwall

Posted on April 6, 2012 by Toothpicker

What are the key components of a perfect getaway? Good companion, great food and wine, cosy and comfortable accomodation, hassle-free transportation and stunning scenery. Well, I experienced them all when I joined a wonderful walking group to Cornwall last weekend! Words fail to describe the experience, so I will let the photos [...]
