    Exploring the last frontier

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 20/10/2014

    » Uncle Nelson Howe sent 3 million viewers into hysterical laughing fits when a viral video of him swearing in Thai was posted on YouTube in March. Scripted, directed and shot in just a day by Salmon Books' cash cow writer, Thanachart "Benz" Siripatrachai, the video propelled Thanachart's book it was unashamedly peddling — New York 1st Time — to bestseller status.

    Made in China, via Bangkok

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/08/2017

    » It's not often that you get to see austere ministers of various ministries, business bigwigs, Hong Kong superstar Ray Lui (better known in Thailand as Tingli), K-pop singers and hundreds of screaming groupies all in the same room. Yet all those differing personalities came together under the flashing glitz and glam of the Thailand Headlines Person of the Year Award ceremony last month at Bangkok Convention Centre, Centara Grand.

    Quite a character

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/07/2016

    » Phakdi "Try" Santaweesuk avoids the press like the plague. We didn't have to throw an ear-splitting fit on the floor the way his comic characters tend to, but it did take much pestering and badgering before the cartoonist for Ai Tua Lek -- which stars the nation's most popular mischief-maker, Pangpond -- agreed to come out of hiding.

    An adventure with Mamuang

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/09/2015

    » The brand new Bangkok Citycity Gallery now has Thailand's most-loved illustrated darling, Mamuang, to mark its inception in the art arena. The day Wisut Ponnimit's work will be shown full-scale in Thailand has arrived at last -- and judging by the artist's "yeah-whatever-don't-make-life-complicated" mindset, you'd better pop in to see it before the exhibition ends in early October. The opportunity to see his mango-shaped little girl -- this time in the form of a choose-your-own-adventure maze, is possibly harder than trying to find Maroon 5 tickets, thanks to Wisut's constant tsunami of work for magazines, product endorsements and countless corporations.

    Robbing from the rich, but giving to whom?

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/09/2014

    » Life has meaning again, now that Downton Abbey has returned to our TV screens, its fifth season beginning last Sunday. Its otherworldly visuals continue to draw me in, with the upstairs goings-on of the aristocrats and the downstairs drama among the servants still as captivating as ever. I actually have to remind myself every time I watch an episode that people from another continent in this world of ours actually lived like this less than 100 years ago: that cooks had to dine separately from the rest of the servants in a stately home; that members of the upper class changed clothes as often as five times a day; that it was inconceivable that a proper lady or gentleman would have to perform actual work to earn a living.

    » If you want to make some money by selling your buffalo character to the Line Creators Market, it's already too late, so forget it. Chances are you'll probably have a hard time competing with the popularity of Sanya "Oh" Lertprasertpakorn's creation: Tidlom.

    Cash in on fashion

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/07/2018

    » 1We've been confused with DKNY ever since its eponymous designer, Donna Karan, stepped down from her brand three years ago. When Public School's duo of Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne were hired as the new creative directors in 2016, the brand moved toward a more edgy and fashion-forward feel. Their departure from DKNY means the collections now are less androgynous and also have less unconventional silhouettes. It's a safe bet that you'll find classics and basics for all occasions, now that all lines of the brand have come under one roof at EmQuartier for ease in mix-and-matching. Most importantly however, is how the price range of the clothes has been adjusted and it's now more approachable than ever. The top glamorous line, Donna Karan, will set you back 7,900 baht for an elegant dress, with many items ranging in the low five digits at most. For New York cool and modernity, DKNY delivers up unadorned solid staples that can take you from day to night, with items like shirts priced at 4,900 baht. Keep the DKNY Sport name on top of your list if you're in need of stylish, yet snug workout clothes. You'll be looking to spend in the 2,000-baht range for their sports bras and other pieces of activewear, discretely decorated with the DKNY logo. You'll only understand after you've touched it -- if you're looking for amazingly soft fabrics, their sweatpants and tees are some of the most comfortable we've seen in this market. Visit the flagship store at EmQuartier.

    Let them see you sweat

    » 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.
