    The Japanese master

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/12/2017

    » Just because you're outside of the capital doesn't mean you can't enjoy star-studded dining too. Last month, InterContinental Hua Hin Resort kicked off their series of world-class dining events by bringing in two-Michelin-starred chef Takagi Kazuo, of Kyoto Cuisine Takagi, for a special traditional menu paired with sake. The master of a rare Kyoto cuisine, or "Kyo-ryori", presented a feast that looked like a gorgeous picture of autumn on a plate -- using Tasmanian sea's salmon, abalone, scallops from Hokkaido and hand-picked autumn leaves straight from Kyoto. Showcasing the beauty of Japan's former capital, the beautifully-plated dishes were not a replica of his menus served back in Japan, but a tweaked version that was adapted to suit Thai culture and style. Befitting this grand occasion, the meal was served at La Residence, the hotel's colonial jewel. Before he jetted off to the next fancy dinner he was cooking, we had a quick chat with the chef about Kyoto cuisine and his work ideals.

    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.

    » Central Embassy has worn many faces. Its positioning has shuffled around from ultra-luxury to hipster to a lifestyle hub, but one thing's for sure. When they've reeled in a world-class model like Kiko Mizuhara as the face of their ad campaign, there's no doubt that it strives to be a world-class destination.

    » Ryan Dillon knows tables around the world intimately. "There's usually a lot of gum," he says from under a table at the Siam Kempinski's business centre. The American muppeteer was sitting on the floor under the table with his arms raised -- a position where he spends most of his time as the performer of Sesame Street's red furball Elmo. Recently in town last month, Dillon and Elmo were out and about in Bangkok to promote the new season of Sesame Street, which airs on MCOT Kids every weekend on 8am.

    All in the family

    » Sitamon "Peach" Pholdee is adorned in huge, glittery musical notes that dangle from her ears and is wearing Sretsis and Saint Laurent silver boots -- thus confirming all the gab we've heard before that she is always excessively and fabulously dressed. That she must be in the spotlight as a consequence of being married to the nation's ultimate heartthrob, Jesdaporn "Tik" Pholdee, has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Happiness in a book

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 16/12/2016

    » Can money really buy happiness? What factors in one's childhood ensure one's happiness in adulthood? Do sons or daughters make parents more happy? And why is stress such an enemy to trying to lose weight? Apparently, something as vague as feelings and happiness can be quantifiable and explained, thanks to Salmon Books' recent release How Happiness Works And Why We Behave The Way We Do. Packaged in a bright yellow hue with nothing less than a huge smiley face on the cover, Nattavudh Powdthavee explains the economics of happiness and our feelings in 32 easy-to-digest chapters.

    Parading 'Thainess'

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 15/06/2016

    » Last year, it was the tuk-tuk dress for the Miss Universe contest, hailed as innovative and also raising eyebrows for its curious design. This year, the original idea for the national costume to be worn by our beauty queen at the Mrs Universe pageant caused giggles rather than uproar: a Suwanna Chedi dress, or imagine our contestant wearing a golden pagoda on her body. The organiser decided to scrap it after much public ridicule, and on Monday unveiled a new design based on pla tapien, or a tropical carp-like fish.

    Denim dreams

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 06/08/2015

    » Spoken like a true human magpie, Yosuke Otsubo admits, "I think just like Andy Warhol, I will enjoy shopping until I pass away." Although working as the sales and marketing director for the premium segmentation of Levi's in Asia, Middle East and South Africa, the 59-year-old Japanese man is more famously known as a bigwig among the vintage clothes collecting crowd — being among the few who managed to turn the world's attention to the value of items that were just a few steps away from ending up in a trash pile.
