View Bangkok from the King Power MahaNakhon Tower

King Power MahaNakhon is one of the most visually distinctive buildings in Southeast Asia. Up close it looks like a jumbled mess with pieces of the building missing. From a distance though it all makes sense. The missing pieces resemble pixels that are spiralling around the building. The building was completed in December 2016, and in April 2018 it was bought by King Power group and its name changed to King Power MahaNakhon. For the rest of this post I’m just going to refer to it as the Mahan...

The Most Popular Movies and TV Shows In the Air

I don’t remember this being a thing in the past, but airlines now seem to be releasing details on the most-watched entertainment options onboard from the previous year. Initially I was going to compare between airlines, but then I realized that was silly. After all, the airlines offer different movies/TV shows, so you can’t really compare. Instead, I’m just going to focus in on one airline. United rolled out its list of most watched movies and TV shows as viewed on its international widebo...

Why Kenneth Branagh Drastically Changed ‘Artemis Fowl’ on the Way to the Big Screen

On the set of Artemis Fowl in London, Kenneth Branagh paces a cramped old English study, filled to the brim with funky baubles and trinkets.
