    Taiwanese pianist Weiyin Chen returns to play with RBSO

    Life, Harry Rolnick, Published on 03/04/2018

    » Few names in classical music are as dreaded and venerated as New York Times reviewer Anthony Tommasini. The lanky writer, expressionless, tieless, inevitably seated on the aisle in Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, gives little indication of his thoughts during a performance. But within 24 hours, his printed judgements will have reached millions. And like a Roman Emperor signalling "up" or "down" to a gladiator, his opinions to a young artist can mean professional life or death.

    Life, Published on 16/04/2018

    » The Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation presented the "RBSO Classical Concert No.3" programme earlier this month and featured the return of the exceptionally gifted Taiwanese-American concert pianist Weiyin Chen. The brilliant New York-based classical star last visited in 2013 for a magnificent performance of the Grieg piano concerto, and on this occasion once again captivated an appreciative audience with an equally moving account of one of Mozart's very finest and challenging compositions, Piano Concerto No.23 In A Major, K.488.


    Ice ice baby

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 22/12/2017

    » Shaved ice is commonly found streetside in Bangkok and is a cheap way to cool yourself from the blistering heat even in the middle of December (Yeah, this cool wave generally doesn't last long). Taiwan's got their own version of shaved ice topped with a little more than just syrup and milk, and Taro Cube is one of the latest dessert shops to the Taiwanese version in the Land of Smiles. Despite being open a mere two months, Taro Cube's already got three locations. The newest and biggest one at Central Pinklao has a slightly larger menu than the other two, but we opted to visit the branch at Central Chidlom.


    Beijing plays, Hun Sen dances

    Asia focus, Pathom Sangwongwanich, Published on 13/02/2017

    » The ever-contentious One China policy has flared up again, but this time the spark did not ignite over the Taiwan Strait or across the Pacific Ocean. Rather, it was here in Southeast Asia, Cambodia to be specific, when Prime Minister Hun Sen banned the Taiwanese and Tibetan flags.

    Handsome devil

    Published on 12/07/2016

    » Hè Junxiáng, better known as Mike He, is one of Taiwan’s biggest stars. The former model made his breakthrough playing bad boy Jiang Meng in the popular series Devil Beside You and has starred in many hit series since then. Despite his popularity, the 32-year-old had never had the chance to meet his fans in Thailand. But last month he finally arrived in the capital for a fan meeting.

    Asia focus, Erich Parpart, Published on 12/03/2018

    50 shades of cheese

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 02/03/2018

    » Blink and you'll miss it! The entrance to Ekamai 16 is rather small, narrow and the street sign is barely visible among Bangkok's iconic wire tangle. But what it leads to is a new restaurant serving good old American fare, complete with craft beers -- The Fat Tap. The casual setting in a townhouse is all wood, which is a step up from owner Matthew Fischer's very popular Fatty's Bar and Diner on Din Daeng. The Fat Tap has the cosy feel of a hip hostel, minus the backpackers, with long wooden benches softened by throw pillows. Classic tracks from yesteryear blast in the background and add more character compared to the other pricey craft beer places found in the area.
