    Exploring lesser travelled paths

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 18/05/2018

    » Ray MacDonald is a Thai-Scottish actor/model/TV host who first came into the public's radar as the eccentric co-host of Teen Talk on Channel 5 back in the 90s (sorry, if this reference makes you feel old). He went on to star in many films, commercials and appear on magazine covers. But lately, it seems he has been bitten by the travel bug and can't get over it, resulting in travel shows with unique spins that he has produced and hosted. Food Tribe on LINE TV (three new episodes from Wednesdays to Fridays), his latest effort, yet again showcases his passion for exploring the paths less travelled. He visited tribe people in different parts of the world and went super local, and by that, we mean he lived, hunted and ate with them. Though Food Tribe is half way through, we think you will miss out on something if you don't give it a look. If that doesn't make you want to watch, we spoke to Ray, too.

    Fine (home) dining

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/09/2017

    » There are people who like eating out at fancy restaurants helmed by Michelin-starred chefs and making it a special occasion. There are also people who prefer home-cooked meals and opt for simplicity over lavish dining. But who's to say you can't have both? Chef Pam Utharntharm is doing just that at The Table. It's not a conventional "restaurant" because she serves patrons at her home and cooks their meal in the comfort of her own kitchen. Guru talked to her about how she's bringing home-cooked Michelin quality food to Bangkokian foodies and helping them experience -- to use the words of the eternally wise Hannah Montana -- the best of both worlds.

    The dandy photographer

    Guru, Published on 08/09/2017

    » Whoever said you can't do it all clearly hasn't heard of this guy. Fashion photographer, humanitarian and now curator: Kanachai 'Kit' Bencharongkul is catching everyone's eye, and not just for his dapper style or envy-inducing IG account. Far more than a globe-trotting son of telecom tycoon Boonchai, Kit has proven himself to be a tireless and wholehearted worker. He has shot covers for magazines such as Lips, Monocle and E; hosted Who Are You on TV and launched his own sweater brand (@KitB_Brand) from which all profits go to charity. But that's not all. He is also the curator of the ongoing "King of Kings" exhibition at MOCA Bangkok, a photo exhibition in tribute to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. We asked Kit a few questions about his work, style and what curating this significant exhibition involves.

    Who's watching Richie Moore?

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 16/06/2017

    » Richie Moore is an award winning American cinematographer and director based in both Bangkok and Los Angeles. His latest production, Who's Watching Oliver, was his directorial debut and has garnered numerous accolades across film festivals worldwide. Richie has a fascinating story. At 16 he dropped out of high school and began working on film sets. Growing up on productions, he was basically raised by his father's film crew and learned to master the ropes from square one. It's obvious film-making has always been more than a career for him; it's his life. His perseverance as a young worker compelled his obsession for film-making and blossomed his love and respect for the duties and contributions of crew members. Over his career, he's done camera work on some notable titles in Hollywood, including The Hangover (parts two and three), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol as well as Netflix's Marco Polo series. Most recently, Richie made the leap into writing and directing. His debut film, Who's Watching Oliver is an indisputable fan favourite in the film festival circuit. The film's popularity has gained some serious momentum already, winning seven "Best Feature Film" awards, five "Best Actor" awards and tallying up to more than 20 nominations. Guru spoke with the man behind the silver screen to get some insider information on his new flick and to see what makes him tick.

    » Chef Kongwuth "Kong" Chaiwongkachon graduated with a Grand Diploma from Le Corden Bleu Dusit and is a notable name in the culinary scene. He first came into our radar as the chef of Fire & Dine at Asiatique, where he created a number of delicious fusion dishes.

He has recently embarked on his biggest challenge yet by opening his own restaurant, Locus Native Food Lab in Chiang Rai. Surrounded by nature, the restaurant serves dinner by reservation only, with no more than 20 seats per night, to make the experience special to both him and his diners.
