    The rice president

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/04/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Arroz is situated in a dainty house on the lower end of the leafy street of Soi 53. A quiet residential area that's been asking for an eatery that serves up something other than pizza and sushi.

    A southern pearl with personality

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 31/03/2017

    » Forget the usual beach huts and bland hotel buildings you've seen on your previous visits to Phuket. Instead, imagine an eye-popping destination set on a lush and tranquil beachfront where the sand stretches for miles and the sea is made up of 20 different shades of blue. Welcome to The Slate.

    The art of being a Bangkokian

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 22/04/2016

    » Despite the common perception that Bangkok is one of the most exciting and convenient of cities to live in, surviving this concrete jungle requires its inhabitants have far more than thick skin and a love for shopping malls. This entails a certain know-how, a knack of knowing-how-to-get-s***-done, or as we like to call it, the art of being a Bangkokian.

    Let's roll

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 22/01/2016

    » Not to sound like an uncivilised Bangkokian, too uncouth and ill-groomed to fit in with the well-mannered hi-sos who ever-so-graciously provide our city with such sophistication and class, but I've found myself, on various occasions, without the time to sit down and enjoy a proper lunch. I've actually become incredibly adept at eating on the go. Literally. I can speed walk while enjoying a 7-Eleven sandwich with ease, and I've even mastered the eating-and-driving manoeuvre. Is it safe? Probably not. But when you're living in this traffic-clogged metropolis, you learn to multitask.

    Taking the (Digital) Leap

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 17/07/2015

    » Thailand is a long way from being recognised a high-tech country; sure we’ve got hundreds of glitzy malls and world-class restaurants but let’s face it, we’re not even sure if the 3G we’re using is real. All hope is not lost though, with Polpat “Popp” Songthamjitti, co-founder of GetLinks — a mobile recruitment platform that helps the new generation network and find jobs within the tech and digital industry — who’s spearheading the highly anticipated Bangkok Startup Job Fest (Jul 25-26, register at www.bkkstartupjobfest.getlinks.co). We catch up with him to find out what he’s trying to achieve at this event and what advice he has for those who wish to work for a startup company.

    Gridlock grumblings

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 19/06/2015

    » Lo and behold, there’s not a single long weekend in sight for something like five weeks. Sadly, June and July is the longest stretch of the year we go without a public holiday. What this means for Bangkokians is that the horrific state of traffic will top our list of complaints, followed closely by the unbearable heat — which not even the subzero blast of BTS air-con can staunch. We feel your pain, Dear Readers, and to help you pass the time while you’re stuck at a red light for what feels like an eternity — or hanging around the office until rush hour passes — we present 10 situations in which every motorist has found themselves while driving in central Bangkok.

    Get 'em wet!

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 10/04/2015

    » Hooray. It's that time of year again, when we once more get to throw gallons of water around and cause talcum powder-induced asthma attacks on as many tourists as we can. To make Songkran more fun, Guru has come up with a definitive guide on the different types of hydrophobes you'll see — and the ways to get them (after all, it's more entertaining than hosing down someone who's already soaked from head to toe). Lock 'n' load those water pistols and fill up them buckets, dear readers — we're comin' in hot!

    Create a scene

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/02/2015

    » Maybe that secret bar, your favourite hideaway known only to a lucky few, is turning into a Thonglorite mosh pit. Or perhaps your eyes are finally giving in after an intense, five-hour competition with a blank Word document.

    Truth be told

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 21/11/2014

    » As Thailand prepares for yet another crackdown, it’s the false adverts this time that are on the chopping block. We’re proud supporters of the big clean-up regime — especially this one that involves the removal of (not so) little white lies that assume we’re all idiots and want ridiculous products like an armpit whitener.
