    Come into my parlour

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 30/12/2017

    » Gone is the midnight-blue vortex of twinkly stars and mystical allure that personifies the Matina Amanita jewellery boutique at Central Embassy. In its place now sits the amped-up and edible world of Sretsis. Sretsis Parlour, which recently celebrated its grand opening last week, is the Sretsis sisters' latest brainchild, which serves fantasy on a plate: the taste of Sretsis is nothing short of Blossom Baby cakes, heart puffs and intricately printed fine bone china -- all to be nibbled in a place where, from floor to ceiling, not a single inch is unadorned or boring to look at.

    To selfie or not to selfie?

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/07/2015

    » The photograph was fuzzy, but ironically, I clearly remember the moment of coming across it, and what was on it, as if it were just yesterday. It was a picture of a pale, blurry blob of a face, framed by jet-black hair tied in a low ponytail. On that face, lay an eager smile and two unfocused specks of flash in what appeared to be beady and squinty eyes. Two pale arms on the sides implied that the camera was already as stretched out as far as it could be. But all this happened a terribly long time ago, circa 1994, way before the ghastly concept of the selfie was born.

    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.

    Hip, cool and happening

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 24/11/2017

    » Over the past few weeks, one particular investment move from our shores -- somewhat equivalent to Crazy Rich Asian's Astrid going on a haute couture shopping rampage -- has been the talk of the town. Thailand's prominent real estate developer, Sansiri, has just invested 2.8 billion baht to buy shares in six of the some of the world's hippest, coolest and innovative names: Standard International, One Night, Hostmaker, JustCo, Farmshelf and Monocle. It's a result of stagnant sales back home and Sansiri's strategy to offer an all-inclusive living solution to their customers, as their president Srettha Thavisin explains. To choose to invest in companies that are young, inventive and trendy, however, shows how the real estate giant has their sights set on the tech-savvy millennials of tomorrow.

    Best of Big Apple comes to Bangkok

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/10/2016

    » It's been a provocative year for Thailand's architecture scene. A handful of world-class superstructures have burgeoned onto Bangkok's skyline, while other ventures are on their way to attract world-class flak for blatant plagiarising. There's just so much to talk about. And the conversation is going to get even more compelling with the addition of 98 Wireless -- which is bound to literally turn the head section on Wireless Road into a slice of the Big Apple this November.

    Let them see you sweat

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 17/09/2016

    » The major summer sporting season may be ending (tomorrow is the last day of the Paralympics in Rio), but as of late, Thais have never needed any excuse to sport running shoes and sports bras everywhere. Being the exhibitionists we are, people are doing all they can to exhibit their active lifestyle: parading through malls, cafés and even offices in fancy exercising gear. Optional: actually working out. The fitness crowd is increasingly dressing to the nines to exercise, making it much easier on the eyes to take those outfits outside the gym.

    Nurture your children with travel

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 05/11/2015

    » Japan is such a haven for all ages. Whether your calling is food, nature, shopping or Gundam models, there's much available to feed all senses, for everyone from those who have yet to walk to the barely walking. If you've got kids, there's the obvious option of Disneyland and toy paradise Kiddie Land, but past the crown of consumerism, the Land of the Rising Sun offers a bevy of development destinations where children not only play, but also learn in the process.

    » Among the many buzz-fuelled collaborations that pack today's retail landscape to thrill and tempt consumers, designer stardust tends to work like magic at bringing a new shine to prosaic and eternally present products.

    None but the brave

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 21/10/2013

    » Like any perfectly-toned and seasoned diver, American athlete David Colturi glibly leaps off the 10-metre platform at Hua Mak swimming pool to execute a couple of somersaults before slicing into the water with a slick barani. He jumps off the high platform as easily as if it were only one metre like any other US national champion can, but the main difference is that he enters the water feet first. To do so is to go against every natural instinct and reflex a normal diver has ever known, as well as to defy all lessons taught and what the muscles have been trained _ and want _ to do. Albeit lesser known, the ability to enter the water feet first effortlessly with such an experienced sleekness is a signifying mark that this is also a cliff diver we're looking at.
