    Mellow time on Merlin beach

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 26/05/2017

    » While many resorts boast about having private beaches, in reality, what they should be saying is "we're really right next to the beach but we share it with our neighbouring hotels and possibly some random vendors too". However, Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa, Merlin Beach, can really back this claim up. And rightfully so too.

    Comic boom

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 26/05/2017

    » Stand up comedy is an unfolding art form, especially in Asia. This city has so much to offer, but where should one go for a good laugh? As an amateur comedian in the English comedy scene here, I've seen popularity grow in nine months, from one or two to four or five shows per week. From an insider's perspective, demand has increased with supply, and rightfully so! Venting the madness behind Bangkok are five comedy venues. We asked club owners, comedians and fans to share the magic most Bangkokians are missing!

    Who's the baddest?

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 26/05/2017

    » It's terribly easy to get a burger in Bangkok. And since it's so common, let's be honest and all admit that we can easily take this for granted. We might even say we get bored of it sometimes (please don't stone us for spouting heresies). But Bad Burger Bangkok is here to change all that. With a menu that's especially crafted by Poupée, the owner and chef who cooks with passion and a vengeance (that's a whole different story), Bad Burger Bangkok is set to dominate and become the baddest burger joint the Big Mango has ever seen.

    Salty, sweet and zesty

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 26/05/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Walking into the Bangkok Trading Post Bistro & Deli almost seems like walking into a whole different world entirely. Coming from your typical Bangkok soi, you walk into what seems like a small doorway, only to find it opens up to a room with a high ceiling and walls made of teak. The furnishings are unique since they've all been custom-made for the restaurant and all around there are decorations that invoke feelings of travel and exploration, making it seem as if you're simply a sojourner taking a break from your weary journey. This is a feel the restaurant was obviously going for and succeeded in doing. The marble tables give you a feel of grandeur and something we were pleasantly surprised with was the fact that the tables had hooks underneath to hang your bags and purses! The ambiance and atmosphere is very laid-back and relaxing and they've actually got an outdoor garden that you can check out -- once Bangkok's weather figures itself out, that is. We haven't even talked about the food yet and we're already tempted to go back.

    The girl behind the paintings

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 26/05/2017

    » Even though it's located on the edge of Bangkok, we made sure we were there at the opening of Anchalee "Ja" Arayapongpanit's art exhibition at ARDEL Gallery of Modern Art. This is her third solo show and it's named "Thriller and Horror". Her artworks are distinctive through their strong portrayal of women, essentially big-eyed cartoon versions of the artist herself. This time round, Ja put herself inside her favourite movie scenes from thriller and horror genres. The shy artist talked to us about the messages behind her paintings which are on display at ARDEL Gallery of Modern Art (goo.gl/iQDoq8) until June 25. Some of them have already been sold.

    When textbooks get it oh-so-wrong

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 26/05/2017

    » Textbooks are meant to inform learners of facts -- not alternative forms of fiction -- on a particular subject. They also provide students with information on things relevant to them, helping them to navigate their lives and make sense of the world.

    Give them your audio

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/05/2017

    » It's easy to take a lot of things for granted, especially those of us who have such easy access to the most important things in life. Education is one of those things and while we can moan about boring teachers and homework, there are those who would give anything to have the same education that's so easily available to many. Pond Sinlaparatsamee, a third-year student from the Albert Laurence School of Communication Arts at Assumption University of Thailand is heading a project named "Voice Out", and hopes to raise awareness about the lack of educational audiobooks available for the visually impaired. Guru talks to him about the project and how he hopes the project will benefit the blind.

    Ginormous dishes

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/05/2017

    » Food is awesome. That's the gospel truth. But you know what's better than food? Large amounts of food. Think about it. A burger is great, but a huge burger is awesome. Japanese curry is delicious, but 2kg worth of it is just epic. With that in mind, we here at Guru have rounded up a few restaurants that serve huge dishes. We recommend you try these with at least four people, or you can go for it all by yourself -- if you dare. One thing's for sure: if you do go and try these dishes, you'll go home with a humungous food coma, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    It's all about roots

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 19/05/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Several months ago an awesome little venue called Roots set up shop in K Village and the place seems to have made an impression on the area as quite the community has now been built around this bar and grill. Crowds gather here regularly, especially during weekends to chillax, eat soul food and listen to good music. The venue is comprised of both an indoor seating area and a large outdoor garden area that has direct access to a children's playground. So, it's kid-friendly and pet-friendly too. Despite the heat, we must admit it's pretty awesome sitting outside. Sip adequately intoxicating drinks and listen to DJs Octave and KC play funky beats while simultaneously watching delicious pizzas and Turkish bread being baked before your very eyes. #chilledvibes
