“This is fucking stupid.” Do you hurt? (SABA LIVE at Sukhumvit 101)

Heard clearly and loudly during #SabaLive on the footpath at Sukhumvit 101.

We have a talk with a MBK’s management for the priority parking and accessible facilities solutions

11 Aug 2017 MBKHave a good chance to visit here at MBK shopping mall for dealing with its priority parking. According to the topic, I met with a MBK’s Security Division Manager to highlight the issues in order to make it right as fast as possible.

They could be a good role model and gain real positive image. Due to the information on hand, MBK got all the …
