    Food as art

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 16/09/2017

    » Ever had saccharine dreams of gumdrop covered walls and tables made out of chocolate? Such creations are not only limited to the pages of Roald Dahl's fiction, as we've come to witness with the works of one pastry chef from Singapore. She may not wear a top hat, but Janice Wong is very much the modern-day Willy Wonka whose chocolates and desserts can unlock the chambers of wonder and glee inside all of us. On the "little red dot" on the world map, she is practically dessert royalty, having opened 2am:dessertbar 10 years ago to serve the sort of mouth-watering confectioneries that are so beautifully-plated it is literally painful to stab your fork into it. Today, her fanciful sweets are not only limited to being served in boxes or plates, as they actually make up the environment visitors find themselves in.

    » Now in its 19th year, Elle Fashion Week returned bigger and longer than ever -- spanning five days, from Aug 30 to Sept 3. Bangkok's symbol of fashion -- the big, white tent -- returned to CentralWorld to give its spectators a taste of the season's upcoming looks, featuring 15 shows and 21 designers. From old guard, established names to brand new labels making their debut, this season was a good mix of flamboyance, as well as sleek sophistication.


    Sacred text

    » "This isn't just a bunch of squiggles fudging it, is it?" my photographer jokingly whispers. His question is legitimate, even if slightly demeaning. You'll be excused for asking that question if you're long-sighted, because to the naked eye, it really does look like a bunch of squiggly lines that add up to create a larger picture.


    From candles to clothes

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 01/09/2017

    » There is no denying the sensual and fanciful world of Karmakamet. Since 2001, the sophisticated aroma brand has been mesmerising Thai (and international) noses with its first-grade candles and dreamy stores.


    Made in China, via Bangkok

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/08/2017

    » It's not often that you get to see austere ministers of various ministries, business bigwigs, Hong Kong superstar Ray Lui (better known in Thailand as Tingli), K-pop singers and hundreds of screaming groupies all in the same room. Yet all those differing personalities came together under the flashing glitz and glam of the Thailand Headlines Person of the Year Award ceremony last month at Bangkok Convention Centre, Centara Grand.


    So into you, Ariana

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/08/2017

    » It's true how beautiful people can do no wrong. They can be doing nothing in front of a screen for 10 minutes and people will still be entranced. That was exactly how Ariana Grande's first concert in Bangkok last Thursday kicked off. With a countdown video of her checking herself out looking pretty, swinging around her hair, interacting with her crew and teasing the audience with "I-can't-hear-you" by leaning her ear in towards the camera.


    Digital blackface

    » I once had an investment banker friend from Hong Kong who was obsessed with Drake, liked to use the term "thug lyfe" and made questionable fashion choices because of his affection for Kanye West. He was the first straight guy I met who wore a form-fitting T-shirt that was long enough to be a dress. With his obvious affinity for all things hip hop, it couldn't have been more "him" when he Whatsapped me using certain emojis. Namely, the black hand, giving a thumbs-up sign.
