    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Now that the Super Bowl is over and Six Nations is back on, it's time to get stuck into rugby. You know, it's the sport where they pass the odd-shaped ball backwards and -- oh yeah, Dan Carter.

    A North Fest you won't forget

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Oozing the same appeal as a vampiric rock God and donning picture-perfect porcelain skin that would make any woman green with an envy, actor/singer and famed Thai celeb Dome Pakorn Lam was answering floods of calls about his new project in Chiang Mai when we sat down to interview him. This is one celeb that means business. Completing his look was an army green barber jacket and black jeans that had chains dangling from the sides; we thought this fashion trend had died down years ago but somehow Dome made it hot again. We got to grips with Dome's true passion in life, music, and what he's doing right now to fulfil this passion.

    » Have you ever wondered what British-style Chinese cuisine tastes like? Of course, probably not. But, if you're wondering now, the good news is that you can try it without having to fly to Heathrow -- or put on some pants and leave your house for that matter too. That's because Golden Bowl Western Style Chinese delivers British favourites of Chinese dishes to your Bangkok address. The Chinese in me definitely got curious about the English version of the food of my ancestors.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 24/02/2017

    » The Thai language can be very tricky. Mai pen rai can mean so many things from "it's alright", "we're cool" to "you're welcome". But when it comes to the use of the Thai language by Thai politicians, you may need to dig deeper. For your entertainment (and at the personal risk of being asked to go in for some attitude adjustment), here are nine of the phrases and words used in Thai politics and what I think they really mean.

    There's no taste like home

    Guru, Published on 24/02/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> We were sceptical when we visited Madame Shawn Bangkok, the latest addition to Chef Jittini "Oye" Wangsin's Thai restaurant empire which was founded in Paris. After all, when it comes to genuine Thai food you can't get any more authentic than your go-to street vendors. But it's good news from us. Bringing her brand of Thai food back to Bangkok, Khun Oye stays true to the unique Thai flavour while offering all the perks of European fine-dining.

    It's O-fish-al

    Guru, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Sushi Zo is located, like a ninja, almost unnoticeably on the ground floor of Athenee Tower. Despite its high calibre, there's no sign to announce its existence, except for a logo on its door and a narrow window to pique your curiosity (and appetite). That being said, it's definitely worth seeking it out if you're up for a Michelin-quality omakase experience. In 2009, the LA-based restaurant's original branch was awarded its first Michelin star. Last year, its New York branch got another. With this kind of acclaim, you know Bangkok's Sushi Zo is going to be super.

    Bangkok's lyrical power

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Electronic dance music is great and all, but sometimes we feel somewhat disconnected when we listen to it. After all, a lot of the time, words -- our primary mode of expression as humans -- are missing. Music is music -- one of the greatest gifts of humankind a whole language in itself -- but where would it be without the words?

    Let's get freaky

    Guru, Eric Surbano, Published on 17/02/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> A little way inside Sukhumvit Soi 39 lies this Aussie-born restaurant that opened its doors one month ago to the Bangkok public. Already having restaurants in Malaysia and Singapore, Pâtissez's location here in Bangkok gives off a very chill vibe the minute you walk in. With its homey décor and atmosphere, you can't help but settle in and just relax. You're greeted at the door with the words "#FreakShakes" which we suspect is a subliminal message to remind you later of what to order. The sign above the counter of the kitchen tempts -- nay, dares -- the restaurant's customers to do one thing: "Get your freak on". But really, we can't help but do just that when you see the spread that the restaurant has to offer.
