In other words, Cancerian, the once-inconceivable may become likely. The adventures you swore you would never have the courage to attempt are suddenly within your capacity. You can at least partially dissolve the one fear you’ve always believed would hobble you forever.
There are times when it’s necessary to put one’s personal well-being aside for the sake of the common good. So (deep breath), here goes... That “charismatic” and “influential” individual who is being blamed for destabilizing the government, global warming and cruelty to puppies? You guessed it: That’s us.
What are the pros and cons of being a dog walker?
If you love dogs, there are only pros. You get to spend time with lots of lovely dogs, which is priceless, and of course you get paid too!
In a city as big as Bangkok, there’s plenty of space for humans to get out and about, but it’s not so easy for dogs—especially those with busy masters. Luckily, professional dogwalkers are no longer restricted to Hollywood movies: They’re available right here in the City of Angels. K. Dhanesha of Ozono reveals what he has learned walking side by side with man’s best friend.
No matter who you will be supporting in the World Cup's final match, finding the right place with the right vibe to watch the game is the thing that counts.

It really is hard to believe how suddenly my life has changed. At the risk of sounding like a newly crowned beauty pageant princess, lolling in her enormous five-star bed with tiara still attached to her head—it’s like a dream.
