    Exotic tea and bites at the St. Regis

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Following right after women, it is arguably afternoon tea that is a match made in heaven when paired with fine jewellery. The two just naturally go together -- where the decorative nature of afternoon tea sets make it the perfect canvas to recreate the daintiness of jewellery pieces.

    A Mad look at the classics

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 16/05/2018

    » Madsaki's artworks are stupid. Stupid of course, in the best cackle-inducing way possible. In his latest solo exhibition "Combination Platter" (situated on the ground floor of Ploenchit's Central Embassy), Leonardo da Vinci's 16th-century masterpiece Salvador Mundi is now a beady-eyed Jesus. And Picasso's US$155 million (4.9 billion baht) Le Rêve -- instead of a tranquil woman napping peacefully on a sofa, she now has giant black button eyes and a dumb smile to match. Honestly, they're even more entertaining to look at than the originals.

    At Cannes, humour makes a surprise visit

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/02/2017

    Judging the judges at Cannes

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/02/2017

    » There was a chorus of surprise when the 69th Cannes Film Festival last Sunday awarded its top prize to Ken Loach's welfare drama I, Daniel Blake -- because the film was largely absent from the critical radar during the 12-day festival. A bigger surprise (not to say disappointment) was when the second prize went to Xavier Dolan's melodrama It's Only The End Of The World, because the film was nearly unanimously disliked for its histrionics and theatrical conceits. When the jury, led by Mad Max director George Miller, gave the prize to Dolan's film, a joke sprang up and quickly caught on, inspired by the film's title: yes, for this film to be honoured by Cannes it is the end of the world, or the end of cinema. Apocalypse now!
