    Bangkokian Phones

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 03/02/2017

    » We're all familiar with the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover", i.e. don't judge people by their appearances. Well, we totally agree. It's 2017, so judge them by their phones instead!

    On the fly

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 03/02/2017

    » While we're waiting for the eventual takeover of robot overlords, allow us, in the meantime, to introduce you to a couple of techie toys that'll bring joy and convenience into your life -- and more importantly, won't rebel against you later.

    The TT Diaries

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 10/02/2017

    » Travelling over 3,000km in a car isn't that impressive. Travelling over 3,000km in an auto rickshaw, however, is something else entirely. This was exactly what the TT Ladies did. The three young women from Thailand — Bom Plengpanich, Aei Jinapuck and Helen Stettler — travelled to India to take part in The Rickshaw Run to raise awareness for domestic abuse in Thailand. The entire journey was filmed by the ladies themselves. The first two episodes are already online, with six more to be released. Guru was able to sit down with one of its members, Thai-Swiss Helen Stettler, to find out more about the experience.

    I'm Batman (kind of)

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

    » This past month, we saw the release of what was possibly the best movie featuring the Caped Crusader: The Lego Batman Movie (yeah, move over, Christopher Nolan). While we everyday people don't have the skills nor the money to become the Dark Knight, these gadgets may bring us ever-so-slightly closer to being the masked vigilante Bangkok needs. Not included: Batsuit with batnipples and tragic origin story.

    There's an app for that!?

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 07/04/2017

    » Our phones are our lives. We feel so lost when we're without them. We've also got apps on our phones that make life so much easier or, in the very least, give us some form of entertainment when we're bored. In fact, we may have a lot of useless apps on our phones right now -- apps that we don't really use but we're too attached to delete. And since we're Guru, we've got a list of apps that are basically just a waste of memory space yet are so quirky or hilarious that you need them on your phone.

    The new kids on the block

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 07/07/2017

    » Bangkok is a huge and sprawling city with sights and wonders that captivate the tourist and resident alike. And there are some equally odd spots that would catch the interest of... well, some. The Big Mango is huge -- and it's not called the "Big" Mango for nothing, you know. There are places opening up all the time that give Bangkokians an inexhaustible list of things to do or places to visit. This week, we here at Guru give you six new places that have recently opened their doors to the public. Pay ‘em a visit, why don't you?

    Street and savoury

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 04/08/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> After being dubbed the world's street food capital for two years in a row by CNN, it seemed only proper that the first Michelin-starred street food restaurant, Hawker Chan, opened its doors to Bangkokians almost a month ago. Hailing from Singapore, this is the restaurant's second venture out of its home country, the first being Taiwan. The restaurant has opened in a pretty accessible location on the fifth floor of Terminal 21. Much like its original Singaporean location, it's not a stranger to long queues, but customer flow has definitely improved since they opened. Still, don't be surprised if all their tables are full during lunch and dinner, especially on weekends.

    Geek havens

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 25/08/2017

    » Any good superhero or supervillain has a good lair, a base of operations where they can keep tabs on their evil foes or scheme and plot world domination. Heroes have places like the Fortress of Solitude, the Batcave or the Avengers Tower. On the flipside, villains have the Death Star, Latveria, Mordor... and the White House. All of these places would perhaps send geeks like us frothing in our mouths over excitement if we were able to visit them IRL, but alas, most are fictional. However, are there any places here in the Big Mango that could somehow make up for it? We're pleased to tell you that yes, there are. Fret no more, fellow geeks -- Guru has compiled a list of the geekiest places in town.

    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.

    Grownup playgrounds

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 03/11/2017

    » Let's all be honest for a second. This is a safe space. No one's judging anyone. Let's all admit this: when we look at kids' playgrounds, we adults also want in on the action. Who doesn't want to ride down that awesome tube slide? Or get lost in a sea of plastic balls? Or crawl into one of those tunnels? But hey, adults aren't allowed in kids' playgrounds because that's not what grownups are supposed to do -- and yes, the playground would probably not be able to handle an adult's weight. While we do agree that we as grownups shouldn't go playing in kiddie playgrounds, that doesn't mean we shouldn't have playgrounds of our own. This week, we've compiled a number of adult playgrounds (not the kind you're thinking) that we grownups can go to for a bit of fun and excitement.
