    For the gram

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 31/08/2018

    » Let's face it: we live in a day and age where our lives are all about social media. People use it for things as vain as conjuring up the perfect image for their followers, to things like having a good online presence for their business. Whatever the case, one of the main platforms that we use daily (if not hourly) is good ol' Instagram. Since 2010, IG has all of us sharing photos, choosing filters, taking videos, being obsessed with the right aesthetic and posting on our stories. IG is pretty easy to use -- what's so complicated about taking a photo and uploading it -- but come on, you don't want to be an IG noob. Here are six apps to turn your IG cred up a notch, and except for one, all of them are available on the App Store and Google Play.

    Fine (home) dining

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/09/2017

    » There are people who like eating out at fancy restaurants helmed by Michelin-starred chefs and making it a special occasion. There are also people who prefer home-cooked meals and opt for simplicity over lavish dining. But who's to say you can't have both? Chef Pam Utharntharm is doing just that at The Table. It's not a conventional "restaurant" because she serves patrons at her home and cooks their meal in the comfort of her own kitchen. Guru talked to her about how she's bringing home-cooked Michelin quality food to Bangkokian foodies and helping them experience -- to use the words of the eternally wise Hannah Montana -- the best of both worlds.

    Artisanal eats

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 04/05/2018

    » Technology is a blessing and a curse. It makes life easier and in turn makes us lazy and have short attention spans. We want things done quick and we want things now, and we've lost the appreciation for the art and process of handmade products and the skill it requires because hey, if robots can do it, why can't people? That makes things made by hand more special despite the fact that that's the way things have been done for years. Handmade means nothing, however, if it also isn't high quality. Luckily, the Big Mango is home to a number of stores that produce top-tier artisanal products -- more specifically, artisanal food, which we think makes it more special because nothing is more special than food, right? You may not be aware of some of these stores (we admit we ourselves weren't aware some of them existed) but hey, that's why we're here -- to tell you about them so all you have to do is feast and enjoy. Here are five artisanal eats in Bangkok that you should try.

    Encapsulated

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 24/11/2017

    » Hotels are not in short supply in the Big Mango, and there are different kinds to choose from. Conventional hotels are great, but a new trend is starting here in the city: capsule hotels. A concept originally from Japan -- and we all know Japan comes up with awesome stuff -- these capsule hotels foregoes the rooms and offers guests something simple: a space to sleep for the night. These hotels are ridiculously cheap, each having a unique vibe, and we're really excited that this is now a thing here in Bangkok. Here are five capsule hotels in the city for you to stay in, whether you're spending a few days here or maybe just want to sleep in a capsule... You know, as one does.

    Living the life

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 17/03/2017

    » It's typical nowadays to hear about an up and coming young artist, and if you think Ananya Birla is just another one of those, then you are sorely mistaken. True, the 22-year-old from India released her single, Livin' the Life back in November. But that's not all there is to Ananya. At 17, she founded Svatantra Microfinance, all the while studying at the University of Oxford and playing gigs. She also co-founded two other companies. The artist/entrepreneur was recently in Bangkok working on the remix of her single which is now out on iTunes and Spotify. Guru sat down with her to ask her some questions, while simultaneously feeling guilty that we haven't done half as much with our lives.
