Welcome to Charoen Nakhon Soi 10, a tranquil and serene neighbourhood that awakens with the gentle touch of sunlight, unveiling a vibrant tapestry of businesses that come alive like flowers in bloom. As the stillness of the night gives way to a new day, the soft movements of doors opening and the quiet footsteps of people moving about break the silence. The aromatic fragrance of freshly brewed coffee from the charming cafes fills the air, creating an atmosphere of serenity and calmness. Here, no one is in a rush; the pace is unhurried, and a sense of homeliness envelops every corner. It is the perfect sanctuary to start the day, surrounded by the comforting embrace of this welcoming neighbourhood.
As the day progresses, the vibrant energy of the community unfolds. The talented aunty with her extraordinary culinary skills becomes the alchemist of flavours, conjuring up mouthwatering dishes that tempt our taste buds. Her assistant, with generous portions of fragrant rice, completes the gastronomic symphony. Meanwhile, the whimsical uncle with his noodle cart adds a touch of enchantment, his bell ringing joyfully to announce his arrival, drawing residents and workers alike to savour the delicious offerings, exactly an hour before noon.
Venturing further into the heart of Charoen Nakhon Soi 10, a remarkable discovery awaits in the form of a famous café community - OURS. It is a realm where aesthetics flourish like vibrant flowers in spring, attracting creative minds and influencers who are captivated by its visual wonders. Yet, beneath the surface allure lies a deeper essence that defines our neighbourhood – an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance that permeates every corner. Resting within this creative space is a minimalistic café - SHELTER, that serves as a morning caffeine boost for the dedicated staff of ME GOODY. Here, the intoxicating aroma of truffle sandwiches blends with the air, creating a sensory experience that inspires and invigorates.
In this tapestry of life, a gifted hair stylist weaves his magic, transforming not only appearances but also spirits. With each skilful snip, confidence is nurtured, and self-love blooms at Myy Turn. Amidst the bustling commerce, our neighbourhood offers spaces for leisure and recreation - other than ME GOODY Space. The shade of ancient trees shelters a badminton court, where people of all ages engage in friendly competition and camaraderie, transcending language and age barriers.
But let me confess, the true essence of this extraordinary neighbourhood eludes the grasp of words. It is an intangible magic that dances in the air, creating an energy that can only be felt with the heart. It's in the shared laughter at the local food stalls, the vibrant spirit of the beloved grandma who owns the street, and the moments of stillness savoured at the cafés. Charoen Nakhon Soi 10 is not merely a place; it is an experience, a tapestry of stories waiting to be written.
So, I extend an invitation to join us on this captivating journey, where the real magic unfolds beyond the limitations of language. Discover for yourself the allure of the Soi, where community and belonging flourish, and the essence of this remarkable neighbourhood transcends any description. It is within this captivating embrace that we have found our home, a place where old and new harmoniously coexist, and the vibrant pulse of a community resonates with each passing day. This is why set down the roots for ME GOODY Space here, in Charoen Nakhon Soi 10.
ME GOODY invites the LGBTQ+ community to explore a new perspective of gender with Seek -/+ Found: Tale of the City
By Panha Eay(Raki)
When we talk about travelling to Bangkok, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Shopping malls? Food ? Or perhaps Art ? For us it’s the story that this city has to tell. The beauty of Bangkok City is a blend of experience with history, food, architecture, and, more importantly, the diversity of people.
Thailand is globally recognized for being socially acceptable of LGBTQ+ community and when it comes to the diversity of this country, the story of gender-neutral individuals is worth telling. ME GOODY, as an ally, present you Jesse Kim, our gender-neutral protagonist.
“What happened to Jesse?”, the question to answer in Tale of the city
Tale of the City is a fairy tale set in the fictitious Empire of Chakawan that was once a glorious Empire. After the death of the Emperor who left no heir, Augustin and Kim families couldn’t agree on the future of the Empire.
As a solution to an heirless throne, the marriage of Jesse Kim(they/them) and Kiaan Augustin must happen so that they can rule Chakawan together. However, Jesse refuses to live their life the way it was arranged so they left on a journey of self-discovery. The mission is to find out “ What happened to Jesse?”
Tale of the City is our exclusive session. By picking up one of the characters in the story, you will embark on a uniquely creative travel experience around Bangkok. Jesse, as a gender-neutral character, is representing the reality of many LGBTQ+ folks who are still discovering who they really are. Jesse is a courageous person who is willing to let go of their life as a noble and choose to find their truth. Do they resonate with you?
ME GOODY is a welcoming platform that provides a safe space for young individuals to embrace and express their true selves, including those with diverse gender identities. ME GOODY invites the LGBTQ+ community to explore the character of Jesse Kim in their journey of self-discovery and empowerment regardless of their gender identity.
Jesse Kim is a symbol of courage and self-realisation. This character was carefully developed to reflect the reality of LGBTQ+ individuals who have yet to reveal themselves to the outside world. Jesse’s story serves as a powerful reminder to embrace our true identity and inspires us to find the strength within ourselves to break free from society’s expectations. Together, let’s cherish the beauty of diversity with ME GOODY.

In the ever-evolving world of social media, there's always a new trend waiting to captivate our attention. And right now, the spotlight is shining brightly on the emerging phenomenon of creative events. These extraordinary experiences are not only transforming the way we engage with our audiences but also redefining the boundaries of social media itself. Get ready to dive into a world where imagination knows no limits and where the intersection of creativity and technology creates a captivating spectacle.
Creative events bring a breath of fresh air to the social media landscape, offering a unique and immersive way to connect with your audience. Whether it's a themed workshop, an interactive product launch, or a virtual art exhibition, these events transport participants into a realm where they can fully engage and interact with your brand. It's like stepping into a parallel universe where creativity reigns supreme.
But what sets creative events apart from the rest? It's the ability to create shareable moments that reverberate across social media platforms. Attendees become active participants in the event, capturing and sharing their experiences through captivating posts, stunning photos, and thrilling videos. This user-generated content acts as a powerful amplifier, reaching a wider audience and igniting curiosity and FOMO (fear of missing out) among those who missed the event.
Influencers, the social media stars of our time, are jumping on board, leveraging creative events to create authentic connections with their followers. By partnering with brands and participating in these immersive experiences, influencers harness the power of their influence to generate buzz and cultivate a dedicated following. Their involvement adds an extra layer of excitement and credibility, transforming creative events into a must-attend phenomenon.
The beauty of creative events lies in their ability to blur the lines between physical and virtual experiences. With the rise of live streaming and virtual reality technologies, these events can be enjoyed by a global audience, regardless of their geographical location. The world becomes the stage, and social media becomes the window through which people can witness and engage with these extraordinary happenings.
As the next big trend on social media, creative events offer a world of possibilities for individuals and businesses alike. They allow brands to connect with their audience on a deeper level, foster meaningful engagement, and generate valuable user-generated content.
So, with ME GOODY, get ready to embark on an adventure where creativity meets technology, and where the power of social media is harnessed to create unforgettable experiences that will leave a lasting impact. Don't miss your chance to be a part of the next big trend—let your creativity shine and watch your social media presence soar!

Rediscovering Human Connection, Virtual Innovation, and Brand Amplification through creativity
By: Wanthida Tiwari
The hustling world came to a dystopian halt when the pandemic brought socializing to a standstill. Industries, including in-person events and entertainment and hospitality, were on the brink of bankruptcy and total annihilation. Events were being cancelled, postponed and/or pivoted to virtual platforms. The COVID-19 Pandemic disrupted the world.
Now, people are coming out of their pandemic cocoon after a series of vaccines and the availability of over-the-counter medicines and healthcare hotlines. The isolation for such a long time has led people to seek more human contact. The rise in in-person events after the lifting of the worldwide lockdown shows that events are once again a booming industry but just like any corpse being brought back to life, no industry will ever be the same. The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened our appreciation for human connection, emphasizing the immense value of shared moments. Consequently, there has been an exponential surge in the demand for captivating events that offer unique experiences and foster genuine connections among attendees.
Moreover, the pandemic has revolutionized the way we perceive events. Virtual gatherings swiftly became the norm, emerging as a viable alternative to in-person experiences. The beauty of virtual events lies in their remarkable accessibility, transcending geographical boundaries and allowing individuals from every corner of the world to participate. This newfound convenience has unlocked a realm of endless possibilities, propelling creative events beyond traditional physical confines and embracing the integration of virtual elements. Brace yourself for the rise of hybrid events, seamlessly blending the best of both worlds, as they captivate audiences in new and exciting ways.
Equally significant is the accelerated adoption of technology in the events industry. Technology played a crucial role in sustaining events during the pandemic and will continue to shape their future. From mind-bending virtual reality experiences to awe-inspiring augmented reality installations, technology has empowered event organizers to craft immersive and engaging environments previously unimaginable. By harnessing the potential of technology, events are becoming more personalized, interactive, and data-driven, yielding greater audience engagement and higher returns on investment.
But what sets creative events apart from the rest? Creative events offer a remarkable opportunity for brands to leave a lasting impression and truly stand out in today's digital landscape. With the widespread influence of social media, events have evolved into powerful marketing platforms. Attendees, eager to share their extraordinary experiences, generate a viral buzz that extends the event's reach far beyond its physical boundaries. By curating imaginative events that deliver unforgettable and one-of-a-kind encounters, brands can generate significant buzz, amplify their brand presence, and foster unwavering loyalty among attendees.
In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably disrupted the events industry, but it has also provided a fertile ground for creative events to thrive. The innate human desire for connection and extraordinary experiences remains unwavering, while the seamless integration of technology empowers event organizers to deliver immersive and captivating encounters. As we venture into a post-pandemic world, creative events will undoubtedly lead the industry's resurgence, captivating audiences and leaving an indelible mark on the realm of events. Get ready to embrace a new era of unforgettable experiences, innovation, and brand amplification and here at ME GOODY we aspire to provide you with that.
To have our own space seemed like a distant dream. Entering 2023, our little agency took a turn towards opportunities and prosperity. After months of blood, sweat and real tears, we finally opened our own event venue- ME GOODY Space - in Charoen Nakhon.
ME GOODY Space soft-launched our first in-space exhibition 'In The Making' with works from 'internationally local' artists, varying in mediums. It was also a thrill to connect with our neighbours and collaborate with them for a neighbourhood branding event #CN10 as we make Charoen Nakhon Soi 10 our home.
Settling into this quaint neighbourhood, we saw the possibility of forming a community that supports and grows together. The proposal to brand our shared neighbourhood as the new creative district was quickly accepted by our collaborators and liked by our sponsors.
Shelter- Charoen Nakhon 10
Oum's Great Crepe
Save Our Souls: Beer and Burger
DG Arts & Crafts
#CN10 is a testimony of their trust in us as we promote and launch ourselves in the neighbourhood. Without them, the campaign wouldn’t be the success that it is.
We are glad to have started the year with such wonderful opportunities and connections. We only hope we keep growing and be better than who we are today.
ME GOODY Space welcomes you.
"In the Making" is the first ever exhibition to be held in the new ME GOODY Space! We collaborated with artists in various artistic realms to showcase their works!
To ME GOODY, ‘In The Making’ symbolizes our belief in never-ending growth. Just as growth cannot be limited, our passion for our creation cannot be capped. Little by little, stroke by stroke, stitch by stitch, we proceed to create what we believe is our art, our passion, our story. Regardless of what kind of art or work you create and make, you are in the process of developing or growing, being made into a better version of yourself through your art.
We are fortunate to present our selected artists whose art range from acrylic on canvas to photography in our very first exhibition ‘In The Making’
Our interactive game that introduces our neighbourhood:
To introduce ourselves and our neighbourhood to the world, we collaborated with the shops in the Charoen Nakhon Soi 10. We left stamps in each of our collaborators' storefront for our visitors to go check out. Once all 5 stamps are collected, it spells out the word DRIVE.
Why DRIVE? It is the energy, the determination that one has to achieve something. The enthusiasm to pursue what they feel is for them. With the soft launch of ME GOODY Space, we want people like you, like us, to keep up the drive to follow their passion.
ME GOODY will be announcing more events and activities soon. Stay tuned to learn, play, connect
Meet Rubynna! Nature is beautiful because it looks like art and Rubynna ’s art is wondrous cause it embodies nature.
The exhibition is on till the 19th of February, 2023 at ME GOODY Space! Come check it out!
