    The restaurant with rooms

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/01/2018

    » The island of Phuket is no stranger to tourists and, unfortunately, that can be a bad thing in some ways. Beaches can be crowded, neighbourhoods can be loud, and the relaxing, seaside escape from the concrete jungle can actually just become a transfer to a seaside jungle. Despite this, there are still pockets of seclusion and serenity on the island of Phuket, and while some places are really secluded, and as far away from civilisation as they can be, The Boathouse Phuket has hit the rare, sweet spot of being tranquil in the middle of a somewhat bustling neighbourhood.

    Giving a fair chance

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 19/01/2018

    » People with special needs may be able to receive education but they haven't been given a fair chance in terms of employment. And that's exactly what Max Simpson wants to change. The 31-year-old educator is the co-founder of Steps with Theera (stepswiththeera.com), a cafe on Ekamai Soi 10 that is staffed by trainees with cognitive disabilities. It also functions as a vocational training centre for them. Through showing what they are capable of, Max hopes, those born with cognitive disabilities will be given more opportunities to work and contribute to society.

    Cinema paradiso

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Independent cinemas are few and far between in Thailand. While people are able to enjoy various films in every mall imaginable, those shown in such chains cater to a mass audience. Although we love our big-budget blockbusters with their high-profile movie stars and dazzling special effects, all the while being seated comfortably in a luxurious, state-of-the-art cinema, they eventually become mundane after multiple repeated viewings. Therefore for some of us, we long to watch something different.

    From Provence to Bangkok

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/01/2018

    » The setting: Tucked away in soi 36 of the growing riverside destination of Charoen Krung lies French St., away from the noise and pollution of the crowded Bangkok streets that make it a perfect getaway dining destination. Opened for three weeks, the aesthetic and atmosphere of the restaurant contributes to the casual and relaxing feel that the restaurant is going for. While there is an option to dine and chill indoors, where the bar is, as well as in the second floor dining room, the garden is definitely the go-to spot for diners. It's bathed with just the right amount of sunlight during the afternoon and adorned with twinkling lights and candles on the tables during the evening. The casual, laid-back vibe French St. gives off is not just evident in the restaurant itself, but also the food.

    Why the morality test is (almost definitely) immoral

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Recently, the head of the National Institute of Educational Testing Service said a new O-Net test to gauge goodness and community service could be a reality by 2019. This is to ensure Thai kids grow up as decent citizens. As well-intentioned as this plan may be, I think there are several ways such a test could easily go wrong and defeat its very purpose.

    Garden chillin'

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 12/01/2018

    » Tiny Tree started out as an online terrarium shop on IG. They've got two locations and are planning to add one more, but it's only at their store on Sukhumvit 31 that they serve a brunch-and-coffee-style menu. It's a way to have their customers participating in their weekend terrarium workshops, something to munch on while in the midst of it, but over time it's also become a place for people to chill, do work or have friends gather over a small meal and drinks.
