    Don't lose your cool

    Brunch, Michael Ruffles, Published on 10/04/2016

    » When it's this hot and humid, Netflix and chill really does mean watching House of Cards with a cold drink in your hand and an ice pack on your neck. It's too sticky for anything else.


    Mind over manners

    » From time to time, the Land of Smiles seems like it's anything but. It becomes the land of smirks when you're waiting for change and the motorcycle taxi rider insists he doesn't have enough. It becomes the land of scowls when you suggest to a middle-aged woman with the khunying hairdo that she wait her turn at the 7-Eleven counter. It becomes the land of blank stares when you point out to the smartphone zombies that they shouldn't block the door of the skytrain.

It is long before the days of mobile phones and Howard Posener is getting nervous, but a sheikh has flown him from London to Spain and promised £30,000 for a night of magic.

    Brunch, Michael Ruffles, Published on 01/02/2015

    » Nostalgia apparently is what it used to be. With new Star Wars and Mad Max films coming, AC/DC and Giorgio Moroder releasing albums, and K-pop hairstyles that look like A Flock of Seagulls, you could be forgiven for feeling like Marty McFly stepping out of the DeLorean in Back to the Future II. There is more than a bit of 1985 about 2015, even though there are no flying cars and only Tony Hawk has managed to get his feet on a hoverboard.
