[Accessible Parking] Can you park a bit nicer please?

The incident took place on an accessible parking at Airport Rail Link (ARL) Hua Mak station. The white car was mine, parking on it since early morning. As you see, I tried to park on the left side as close as possible to allow free space. When I returned back to my car, I found this terrible scene. The red car parked too close that I couldn’t get in! An officer confirmed that the driver was an elderly. This is not the first time. I remember this car behave like this quite often previously. I wish I could meet and …

People with disabilities (PWDs) in Thailand are so rich!!

One of our network folks wandered at a luxury shopping at Phrom Phong, and encountered with this spectacular scene shown in the image. Without thinking he cried out “PWDs in Thailand are so rich!!” However, I’d like to remind you that public consciousness and wealth is a different thing. No matter how rich or poor, we’re all the same as people. The mall, too, must obey the law regardless of customer’s social status. “Accessible and functional.”
