  1. Hello Kuhn Pon,
    I really enjoy your notes, etc. But what I enjoy most is your “comment” section. IMHO Thai companies publish lots of “plans” which apparently have nothing substantial behind the expressed “wishful thinking.”
    So, we all appreciate the comment section… adding a crucial element!
    Have a good week
