    Hitting High Notes

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/10/2018

    » This year saw finalists from Southeast Asia, South Korea, India, Australia and China perform at Aloft Seoul Myeongdong on Sep 20. Hanita Bhambri delivered a powerful performance of Let Me Go and is this year's winner. Through Aloft's partnership with Universal Music Group, she gets a music video and a digital release of her single to kick start her career. Although Nontree "Nate" Paitoonvongvira, who represented SEA, didn't win, he wowed the audience with a catchy performance so much that we want (you) to get to know him. You may remember him performing a jazz rendition of Britney Spears' Toxic on The Voice but there's more to this singer/interior designer.

    Budget Rethink?

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 21/04/2017

    » Our dear cabinet recently approved a budget to buy 10 made-in-China tanks worth two billion baht while key members also seem keen on a plan proposed by the Royal Thai Navy to buy three submarines worth 36 billion baht. While I'm sure these dear sirs exercised their sound rationale before agreeing to such big purchases for the sake of Thailand's security, IMHO, with utmost respect, I would like to point out that there are other more beneficial ways the money could be used too.

    Banh mi and bourbon

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 05/01/2018

    » The Setting: Not only Happy Endings, a new restaurant in Sala Daeng Soi 1, should pique your interest with its double entendre name (intentional or not) but also its contemporary take on Vietnamese cuisine. I climbed a green metal staircase, passing the restaurant's name spelt in handwritten lowercase with neon lights and opened a double-panel door to a casual space. Think bare ceiling with pipes running along it and exposed beams.

    Spilling the Tea

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Remember when bubble tea was all the rage in Bangkok? There's another ongoing trend hidden in tea shops' menus that you may not be aware of, namely, cheese tea. Accordingly to a 2017 article by Condé Nast Traveler, cheese tea started from street stalls in Taiwan and later become so popular in China that people queued up for hours to sip it. And it has been a thing in Bangkok for some time now -- since around late last year, to my best knowledge -- and Ditto Modern Tea on the second floor of CentralWorld is one of such shops that offers this curious concoction, and more.
