Thailand and the media! That’s a very special kind of relationship, one that is often thought to be rather superficial thanks to the success of lakorns (soap operas) and the huge amount of following they amass.

Not a Thailand related post. If you’re only here for that, you can skip this article. Let’s get straight to the point. I still can’t quite comprehend what happened in Orlando earlier this week. Even though it’s far away and not likely to happen here as of now, it is still stuck in my head. […]

Comparing to the […]

In case you are, like me, a supporter of the German football team by default or whether you are a fan due to their playing style and success (World Champions, baby!) you can enjoy watching their first preliminary games during the European Championship at events organized by the German embassy and the German-Thai chamber of […]
Look what just popped up in my concert tracking app. Awesome. Pentatonix, one of the world’s most famous a capella groups and youtube sensations (and two time grammy award winning) are going to to stop by in Bangkok while touring the world. Tickets will go on sale on TTM on June 17 and start at 2,000 […]
A few days ago I’ve been interviewed by a University faculty (I’ll post a link here as soon as it’s up) in order to give students and anyone who is interested a deeper overview over where I come from, what I did up until now and so on. The interview focused on my background, my […]
When doing sports in Thailand I always realize that lots of the other guys that exercise either don’t shower or change their clothes inside the shower cabin without showering. I find that a bit weird and it just reminded me of that song. Am I the only one that thinks so? Saturday morning jumped out […]

Many people in the world love traveling to big cities. While some might claim that you can’t truly experience living without heading to one of the longstanding and traditional metropolises, it is not in any way the absolute truth.

As some of you already realized, sometimes I do go off topic here. Especially when there’s something happening that needs to be shared or, like in this case, worked through. Muhammad Ali just died. A few hours ago news broke that the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) was put on life support and that his […]
A few days ago outrage took place in the usually more quiet world of academics. We don’t complain much (well, we do, just nobody hears or cares about it) and just ‘do our thing’. That ‘academics stuff’ that nobody really understands anyways. This past week however something happened to connect the world of academics with […]
