Creating a city that everyone can equally enjoy ‘is not difficult’. Thanks to Starbucks – Phetchaburi MRT Station.
Our body is susceptible to change. Nothing guarantees that your health today will stay the same tomorrow. ‘Tomorrow you may become a wheelchair user like me’. Imagine yourself in a wheelchair and come across a difference in floor height of just under two inches. I am sure that would cause you trouble.Read More »
Last year marked quite a busy year as I was invited frequently to deliver speech talks. Any visiting events were built in complete regard to satisfy full accessibility. I give you one ample example at Amnesty Media Award as the followings below: – The slope at the front stage, signifying the highest honour I called this flash arousal ‘privilege’. You know what this, locating at the forefront, is so important. Why? Traditionally, a slope was often located at the backstage or at a hidden place somewhere else far away.

[Good story] The sustainable business is the business that wins the heart of customers. Thanks to Mal and Permobil / Australia
Many of our avid fans must realise very quickly when I told you about my last purchase of ROHO for 6 months then it leaks off. I was so worried because the seat was no where near cheap. It’s almost 20,000 Baht. But I had to buy and use it. Without it, I cannot live and work my life quite well. Because of this seat, it reduced possible pain to my body and allowed me to be crazy with life sometimes. My marathon achievement wouldn’t have been possible without this this seat. It’s not exaggerated to say that this seat …Read More »
I’m recently notorious of bad and unequal comparison that might instigate us to feel inferior. There’s no way I’d do that, by intention. So today I make a twist to show a more positive side of ours. The image is clearly demonstrated in itself of what we actually can do. When we want something to be great, it would finally be great.Read More »
Fashion Island’s Family Parking – is not just WOW but it is THE BEST in Thailand, THE BEST in the world!
Since the past many years, Fashion Island has been one of shopping malls that we’ve engaged in a deliberate consultancy. It keeps improving to match its grand goal: ‘a shopping mall for all’. Recently, we joined the meeting once again and one of the managements threw a commitment word to us, “Good is not enough guys. It must be WOW!” The situation was better now after the peak of the Corona Virus, so yesterday was my first field survey and I was shocked by what I’d seen before my eyes.Read More »
Mega Bangna’s accessibility score is the highest ever in shopping mall category! Perfectly brilliant and virtually all-rounded!
During 2017-2018, we had involved and made a deliberate consultation to the Mega Bangna’s management team. This inclusive collaboration included the accessible parking improvement, toilet redesign, its new zone of Mega Foodwalk, and many more. I still remember that one of the management guaranteed firmly that the mall would incorporate full accessible facilities so everyone can get access comfortably and equally. Time passed, and I regularly received good news about the mall’s traffic that increasingly welcomed variety groups of customers; family, the elderly, or the wheelchair users. They came there because they knew they could, thanks to the all promised …Read More »
