    To the extreme

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 26/11/2021

    » Video games that are based on extreme sports seem to be scarce these days, a far cry from the days of the PS2 when titles like SSX and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater were common. Ubisoft's Rider's Republic seeks to bring back the adrenaline-filled, death-defying tricks into the lives of gamers. Though there are a few things that could be improved, the game does a great job of making players addicted to the rush of racing downhill at high speeds and could hopefully be the first of many extreme sports titles in the coming years.

    » The Just Dance franchise has had people moving and grooving for years, providing a means for gamers to work out by using video games similar to the now popular VR game Beat Saber. With a new Just Dance title being released annually, is it worth spending money on the latest one?

    Nippon express

    » Thailand has reopened its borders to foreigners and the prospect of travelling abroad seems to be more of a reality now than it did a few months ago. It's not entirely back to normal though. There are hurdles to go through and it costs a lot of money if you want to go abroad and return to Thailand. That being said, unless you're unlike many of us and showed great self-control when it came to spending on food deliveries during lockdown, you've probably saved a fair bit to travel. A recent Visa survey revealed that the number one place Thais want to visit is Japan and if you can't get yourself there, Guru has the next best thing -- places in the Land of Smiles that transport you to the Land of the Rising Sun.

    The power of control

    » Sennheiser consistently delivers on the audio quality of their products so when I was able to get my hands on the CX Plus True Wireless, I was expecting great things. Fortunately, it didn't disappoint.

    The fats and the furious

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 12/11/2021

    » The classic American diner has been immortalised in pop culture and has reached far and wide, even making it to the shores of the Land of Smiles. While its menu staples like burgers and milkshakes aren't really hard to find here in Bangkok, Fats and Angry also leans heavily into the sights and sounds of a 50s era diner. I can't really say whether the menu stays true to its roots because I was not alive during then nor have I lived in the US, but what I can say is that I left the restaurant a little more fat and not at all angry.

    Is bigger better?

    » Much like the iPhone 13, the Apple Watch Series 7 at first glance doesn't look radically different from its predecessor. However, once you get to use it, there are a couple of new features that set it apart from the previous model. The question though is whether it's a worthy upgrade.

    Camping cosmos

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/11/2021

    » T  hailand has officially entered the cold season -- well, at least it's cold for those of us who live in the Kingdom. According to the Thai Meteorological Department, the "winter" (quotations as Thai "winter" isn't really winter at all) began on Nov 2 with the coldest days occurring in the latter half of December all the way until the end of January. For city-dwellers, it's predicted that we'll be enjoying the "extreme" minimum temperatures of around 15C to 16C, though we'll believe it when we feel it. However, the cold season signals the perfect time to take a camping trip especially up North where temperatures are expected to go as low as 6C or 7C. Brrrh. So unearth those fur coats and start buying camping gear for a cool road trip. Pun intended. It's time to go camping and Guru's got spots picked out for you.

    Traditional tales

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/11/2021

    » Anyone who lives in Asia knows that the countries are a treasure trove of supernatural beliefs that scared the living daylights out of us as kids -- and perhaps even now, as adults. With Folklore, iconic Singaporean director Eric Khoo takes the helm as showrunner as he gathers superstitions and myths from across Asia in an anthology series with each episode directed by different directors like Indonesia's Joko Anwar, the Philippines' Erik Matti and even first-time director Seiko Matsuda, who is known for her singing and acting career in Japan. The second season of the anthology series premieres on Nov 14 on HBO Go. Guru speaks with Khoo and Matsuda, who directed the second episode, about the series.

    » Apple's iPhone 13 line-up was announced last September and was met with eager anticipation from fans and scepticism from its detractors. The tech giant was smooth as usual in its presentation of their latest phone and boasted many new features to entice customers. Now that it's been out for a few weeks, has the iPhone 13 lived up to the hype of its fans or does it prove its detractors right?

    Coming full circle

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 22/10/2021

    » Bangkok has finally sprung back to life! People are venturing outside, Asoke and Siam are once again centres of headache-inducing traffic jams and dining-out is an option again. But we also shouldn't forget about shopping and while it was technically possible even during semi-lockdown, it's different now that we can go outside with relative ease. However, as we ready our wallets -- or perhaps credit cards because cashless is the way ahead -- to go on a post-lockdown shopping spree, we can also consider buying from places that help the environment and reduce waste. Whether it's buying pre-loved items or selling or donating the stuff in our closet that we've barely used, there are many avenues in the city to do just that, like Ikea Bang Yai's brand new Circular Shop. Here are a few ways you can shop 'til you drop and at the same time help make the city a greener place.
