One Aspect of Road Safety is ‘Ourselves’

This picture was taken three years ago during my Japan second trip. It was a late afternoon in Kawaguchi and we were heading back to a train station to return to Tokyo. I took this picture from a distance. We can see elementary school students wearing bright yellow hats and with their hands held high as a clear signal to coming vehicles that they want to cross the road.

Why is the water in the canals in Japan so oo o oo clean ???

I have been to Japan twice. One of the amazing things I noticed was that their rivers and canals were clean —I repeat, very clean! I remember waiting on one side of Kawaguchiko Lake to take a photo of Mt.Fuji and seeing waste water running into the lake through gutters from various places, but the water was visibly CLEAR. In many traveling attractions, they even kept fish —- you could see them swimming!!!

A ramen chef on his wheel! Excellent, see you soon!

(คลิ๊ปภาษาอังกฤษ) https://youtu.be/wamCOr48Lzc I watched this video content from Asian Boss. It reminded me a lot about what I had just talked with a young PWDs. This ramen chef served as a prime example for someone who never let his inferior condition to take over his heart. He adapts his skill to suit with his physical condition. Obviously, his “mindset” is essentially the most important. He would have live a life with despair and hopelessness if he allowed his disability to take control his life.

The comparison between Bangkok’s brand-new pavement and Japan old-aged pacement, at a subway entrance

I recently got this pic. The width of Bangkok’s pavement is next to nothing. While the Tokyo city built since 36 years ago and offers you very wide even a car can run on. An image is worth million words. This kind of scene has prevailed in Thai society for too long. Why didn’t we see much improvements at all? Why we’re still underdeveloped, and let this non-sense takes over our city and our life?

A moment when a security expels customers out of the elevator

This incident was a story while I was travelling in Japan at the beginning of this year. It took place at Bic Camera, Namba Store in Osaka. Bic Camera is a leading consumer electronics retailer chain in Japan. The store was extremely crowded at the day. Most of them were seemingly foreign visitors. I was waiting for an elevator for so long to go to the upper floor. Due to the crowd, every time the lift opened, it was packed with tons of customers that I wasn’t able to get in it. Believe it or not, I had been waiting …

A mission in searching for a S-Guard barricade in Japan!!

A barrier preventing motorcycle is also known as S-Guard barricade. It is a novel innovation brought to you by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) in an attempt to prevent motorists driving on the sidewalk. This weird thing is increasingly enlarging in scale throughout the city of Bangkok, especially at the major intersections. The point is that I have a strong belief that those authorities, who have the power to initiate this execution, might perhaps derive this idea from Japan where the innovation already existed. It might appear interesting in their eyes. However, it’s just a superficial inspiration and lacks scrutiny on …

Life difficulties make people stronger

We all had heard a recent tragedy of strong earthquake hit around the Osaka metropolitan area in western Japan on today morning. Every time this kind of natural disaster incurred I have to make a comparison with our country. Although Japan has been suffering with constant natural disasters since ancient time, especially earthquake, the country remains one of the largest economies and most powerful nations in the world. The situation is somehow opposite to Thailand where the country is mostly free from massive natural disaster and fortunately possesses rich natural resources. However, the country in overall is still in the …

The precious smile, the incredible over expected value

Smile and happiness is priceless. Shot with a foreign family, this image took place on March 2017 when I participated in the press conference on the “BTS’s first four lift delivery date, joined by the Bangkok Governor and his Deputy, and many involved parties. I met this family when the event was over. I got a chance to talk with them and was very impressive when they said that, as a regular passenger, they’re very happy that the lift’s installed so they could use it. Needless to explain, let the image says itself. What we see is the smile and …
