    » 'Do you like The Beatles?" is one of the first questions Maribel asks me during our consultation before the treatment starts. "Well, even if you don't, you don't have a choice. You'll just have to listen to it anyway," she quips.

    » Having worked as the assistant of hospitality for trailblazer Barry Sternlicht when the Starwood empire was just getting launched, Amar Lalvani was right at the birth of the whole "cool lifestyle hotel" movement as it came into fruition 20 years ago. "I was there since the beginning and I loved it," the California-born hotelier recalls. "I didn't seek it, but when I saw it, it encapsulated everything I liked to do so I just stuck with it."

    » Luggage is a product that must be lasting, but who's to say it shouldn't be injected with some fun and fashion? That's what creative director Victor Sanz brought along with him when he joined the international house of travel, business and lifestyle accessories, Tumi, in 2003.

    Feeling all right

    Brunch, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/08/2018

    » There is a stillness -- borderline boring -- to Scrubb's chosen mode of visual expression. The constant of stony faces and stock-still poses that embellishes all of the band's album artwork, editorial photo shoots and magazine covers is bequeathed on us too, as Torpong "Ball" Chantabubpha and Thawatpon "Muay" Wongboonsiri laugh through gritted teeth that it is actually a strain for them to smile for the cameras or to assume the role of a dancing monkey.

    Love, always

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 11/08/2018

    » Flowers are always a nice gesture, but ones that can last forever are sure to give you a better run for your money. Why not gift mum with some jewellery pieces that come with the floral sentiment? Flowery assortments from Swarovski come in contemporary designs which feature a timeless black and white colour combo. They've also got a pearl option where they can be removed from the earring to channel the asymmetrical earring trend. If you want real diamonds, Tilda's Mother's Day collection features florals which also hold symbolic meaning through eight flower petals. Eight represents infinity, or infinite love in Western culture, while signifying wealth, or infinite fortune in Chinese culture. Otherwise, seal your love with hearts from Pandora which also comes in rose or golden hues this season. Their iconic logo and heart-shaped charms come in sweet colours that will blend right in with your staple silver set, while there are also letter charms to spell out your appreciation for mum.

    » Education and morality are not a given duo package. It infuriates me to write this, but apparently, having a good education by no means ensures that a person will turn out to have more-or-less sound morals. Which is ironic, because shouldn't all that education have gotten it across somewhere that paying for your education bills is what makes for some of the most basic requirements to being a decent human being?

    Houses worthy of a fortune

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/08/2018

    » It happens only once a decade or so. This is a reference to Sansiri's flagship super-luxury projects, where the creation of the most exclusive condominiums and opulent houses are up for grabs. This year, it's Baan Sansiri Pattanakarn, where resplendent white houses (all lakorn-cameo worthy) have been erected on Pattanakarn 30. Inspired by the Regency era, much of the design aesthetics on these 37 rai of land will be derived from what is considered the golden age of arts and culture in 19th-century England.

    Polished jewels

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/08/2018

    » There's beauty in things that do what they are meant to do well. In the case of crystals, let's get straight to its main function: to sparkle, dazzle and bring a touch of brilliance to its wearer. Never mind that it's not a precious stone, because the splendour of crystal jewellery pieces these days is no less impressive than that of their fine jewellery counterparts. If anything, Swarovski's annual regional gala at Kuala Lumpur last month was a star-studded indication that crystals can be just as glamorous and bedazzling, despite their roots of mimicry.
