    » 'You can't work for Karl for 33 years and be bored," says Caroline Lebar. "If I did, I would have been bored a long time ago."

    The other eight won't be like this

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 27/04/2018

    » They say cats have nine lives, but one is more than enough, if you happen to be Fa-Raon. In fact, this fur ball probably has a life that is better than most humans, because he is a permanent guest at the resplendent Le Bristol Paris. Appropriately assuming the position of Hotel Cat, the Birman fits the whole picture like a glove. Also known as a Sacred Cat of Burma, this purebred completes the prestigious hotel with its regal posture, beautiful white fur and, as the establishment's luxury positioning would have it, a Goyard collar.

    Beyond the bag

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 27/04/2018

    » Women (and some men too, to be honest) go hysterical for Hermès' Birkin bag. There is no denying that the French maison's handbag is one of the most globally recognised icons and coveted items, but mention of their furniture line may draw a few blank looks or two. There are no shortages of accessory or fashion houses that also cover interior living grounds, be it American classic authority Ralph Lauren Home or the Italian peacock that is Versace Home. But what exactly is the Hermès aesthetic and what is so enticing about it? How does it encapsulate its high-end luxuriance when their art direction seems to be less is more?

    Living the dream

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 27/04/2018

    » Paris may not be as famed for the art of afternoon tea as the UK, but that doesn't mean it's not worth your while. If you're in the City of Lights and have a craving for some top-notch tipple time, make it at Cafe Antonia, housed inside the palatial hotel Le Bristol. The cafe may be named after Queen Marie Antoinette (her mother called her Antonia as a child), but crowds from all circles seem to be drawn to this airy eatery that offers drinks, sandwiches and afternoon tea. There's not even that many tourists, but rather, a large number of locals, be it office men, fashionable Parisians or senior women who come for their delightful high tea sets.

    Ain't no stopping us now

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/04/2018

    » 'I would like to thank my friends and family for supporting me through all this and letting me know that it's OK to study rotting leaves," said Professor Amy T. Austin during her acceptance speech last month in Paris. There was good humour and chuckles rang throughout the Unesco House, but there was also an underlying distress that provides a portal to understanding what sort of tribulations female scientists must go through.

    What's trending and happening this week

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/04/2018

    » 1. There's fun for the whole family this Songkran at Megabangna's Mega Splash ... Mega Lanna Happiness. The mall will turn into the ancient Kingdom of Lanna and will be extravagantly decorated with flags and lanterns. Activities at the Sook Jai Zone will feature Lanna-style performances such as Jeng dance, a northern elegant but exhilarating dance that has roots in martial arts. At the Sard Sanook Zone, splash away all the heat at the mobile water park, which will be equipped with a giant water slide and water tunnel. For some retro fun, there will also be a traditional temple fair, with all its old-fashioned ice pops, sugar candy sculptures, shooting galleries and dunk tank girls. Celebrate the festivities at Megabangna from 10am-7pm until tomorrow.

    A broad canvas

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 07/04/2018

    » Not all of us will make our mark as Mona Lisa, but it is possible to be the centre star of an art piece. If you are a self-confessed shutterbug and lover of art, an interactive art exhibition is currently ongoing at Emporium right now under the name Museum of Me (MOME). Inside the pink pastel box, which has just popped up inside their department store, this museum's showcase will not be complete without its main exhibition: you. Get snapped upon entering MOME and get ready to see yourself turned into art works by 10 different artists. The summer museum visit all ends at the museum gift shop, which of course, sells mementos that star you.

    » The Dusit Winter Festival (Oon Ai Rak) may be over, but initiatives from His Majesty King Vajiralongkorn to spread the good grace of Thai culture continue. From today until Sunday, a number of activities relating to Songkran festivities will be hosted at the Royal Plaza and nearby Sanam Suapa. Tonight, at 6pm, members of the public are invited to join in a Buddhist chant along with 239 monks to pay homage to Queen Sirikit and the past monarchs.

    Refined rawness

    » A step into Bangkok's latest fine jewellery flagship store does not involve upholstered chairs, velvet-lined display cases and plush, crystal lighting fixtures. At Patcharavipa, the earth-toned archaeological plaster floor and walls offer your first feel of the brand's organic characteristics, while the space is sparsely dotted with what looks like slick, rectangular blocks of dark concrete that house the jewellery pieces.

    Perfecting penmanship

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 30/03/2018

    » Daniel Kohler is the name to have on your speed dial if you are a pen collector. Then again, if you are inclined towards the precious and pricey types of writing instruments, you probably already have Montblanc's head of client relations and high artistry on your contact list. But for those who are just starting out with collecting and happened to miss his visit to Bangkok last month, fret not, because we also didn't get to see the €1.5 million (57.8 million baht) pen we had hoped to see in real life at a private suite at the Okura Prestige either.
