A Day in the Life in Bangkok

Grab a motorcycle taxi?
Spicy papaya salad?
The training is coming. It’s coming.
Caring is holding hands.

A Gathering of ASEAN Digital Diplomats

I spent the first week of September in Bangkok, Ayutthya, and Rayong province, Thailand. It’s an honor to be part of this trip hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand.

Kamnoetvidya Science Academy

This Thailand’s modern academy is embarking on grooming the newest generation of nation’s most gifted minds.

Only 70 students get accepted after 5000 thousands of applicants, from across Thailand, go through a series of tests every year.

The classes were named after the four houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft.

And the quotes start from Galileo Galilei to Steve Jobs.

To navigate through the next century, it may start with having this school on the outskirts of Rayong, out in the jungle, where most talented kids can discover, make, and invent.

I wish I can send my kids here. But for the time being, it’s not open to foreign students just yet.
