Latest News: Thailand to save the environment one plastic bag at a time.

Those issues are just being raised because we care – if…

While on my muay thai journey I come across new muay thai gyms rather frequently. I don’t always give every single gym a try, but since Punrith Muay Thai Gym is located extremely close to my home turf I decided to give it a try. Here’s my impression. Atmosphere Punrith Muay Thai The atmosphere upon walking in is alright. I kind of like the old-school flair that combines some new equipment with lots of old-school stuff.

Max Moo Ka Ta Bangkok [review]

Time for some good food! Whenever I thoughts like this pop into my head there are a few different food options coming to mind but, quite frankly, one of the most prevalent options usually is Moo Ka Ta. I don’t always give in to that urge as it is, obviously, not the healthiest of options, but a very satisfying one once you go for it. More or less by chance I now came across a Moo Ka Ta place around my home turf of Saphan Kwai (BTS stop between Ari…

Uber pulls out – of Thailand & Southeast Asia

That’s something one doesn’t hear often in Thailand. A foreigner pulling out. Global transportation communication heavy weight Uber however now decided on said move, making it the third time (after China and Russia) in history that big bad Uber is turning its back on a huge user base and leaving it to their immediate rival.
