Thailand’s SOTUS problem

Seniority Order Tradition Unity Spirit – that’s what SOTUS stands for. Sounds good, kind of, at least in the beginning but when looking deeper into what that actually means for students joining Universities here in Thailand it becomes clear that SOTUS is all but a good and timely thing to have. What is SOTUS exactly? Each year when freshmen join University the SOTUS committee consisting of senior students will create hazing rituals for the newbies. They call it “SOTUS” because that sounds better than calling it what it is, being…

Tired? Take a nap at Power Nap Lounge Bangkok

Work in a bustling city such as Bangkok can be exciting, but it can also be rather exhausting. Especially if you’re stuck in one of the business districts with nowhere to go and traffic jams or packed public transport blocking your way home. Sometimes all one would need was a short, may I say, power nap to feel better but going home to get some quick quality sleep in is usually not on the table. Enter Power Nap Lounge. Power Nap Lounge Bangkok opened not too long ago in Asok,…

Landhaus – German / Austrian bakery in Bangkok [review]

As many of the my-thai.org readers know, I’m from Germany and, in the time before moving to Thailand, worked and lived in Vienna, Austria. I don’t really miss a lot of the German and / or Austrian way of life, the seriousness, the complaining and the bad weather during autumn and spring. One thing I do miss though: German / Austrian bakery. Once in a while I simply “need” some REAL bread and every time I try to get it at any of the bakeries here, even the ‘good’ ones…

GoSnoop – the Bangkok outdoor adventure game

As someone who’s been living in Bangkok for more than five years now I think it’s probably rather difficult to find new and exciting things to do in the city of angels. Even when looking at exciting or ‘cool’ things to do, been there, done that. So it’s always a pleasure when something new comes along and catches my attention. Enter, GoSnoop. GoSnoop is an outdoor adventure game that currently only operates in Bangkok but might be opening other venues in the near future as well. On their homepage they…

Disaster? Shh! Mai pen rai! – Why Thailand remains quiet about disasters

What’s the last news you heard from Thailand? If you don’t live in a cave (ba dum tss) it’s probably been the story of the football team trapped in said cave, right? And while we all agree that that’s a tragedy (especially with one diver dying) it still is, somewhat, a feel good story. An event that brought Thailand (and the world) together in the pursuit of freeing those trapped by mother nature. Now is there any other event, disaster, incident that you know of? If you’re actively following the…
