    Taking the plunge

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

    » Isawan "Oil" Sutthinark may be a familiar name in the circle of Thai designers. And although we're huge fans of her super sleek handbags, recently we've been more drawn into her other new project, Suntan Tour (fb.com/Suntantour), a boutique travel company dedicated to free-diving. You may have seen some of her diving pics on Instagram and wondered how she got into the sport? Well, Guru's got you covered as we sat down with our favourite thalassophile to find out more about her unique tour and where, in her opinion, the best places are to free-dive.

    Handpicked hamper

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 16/12/2016

    » If we had it our way, the government would reconsider its stance on free speech and developers would stop building so many bloody malls. But since that's not how the world works (or at least Thailand anyway), we think it's probably a better idea to save our breaths, shut our gobs and indulge in the finer things in life instead. After all, it is the holiday season, which automatically means that calories don't count and three glasses is a perfectly decent number of vino to be had.

    Bold move, big flavours

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 23/09/2016

    » From a food blog, to a cooking studio. Nhoi Ouypornchaisakul has eaten her way through America, written about everything from family recipes to local street vendors, worked in prestigious kitchens such as Nahm and Bo.lan, and co-founded Bangkok Bold Cooking Studio (503 Phrasumen Road, Fb.com/BangkokBoldCookingStudio) with Supanut Khanarak, the former head chef at Spice Market. Together, they teach Thai cooking classes and host private dinners in a chef’s table style that’s becoming extremely popular among the foodies crowd. She shares with us some of the misconceptions people (yes, even us Thais) have about Thai cuisine and if there’s really such a thing as “authentic” Thai food.

    Not your usual lunch ladies

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 02/09/2016

    » Anyone who has ever worked or is currently working in the F&B and hospitality industry knows that the word "easy" is not a part of the job description. And anyone who says otherwise, is probably not doing it right. From dealing with difficult customers and unreliable suppliers to spending long hours on your feet in the kitchen working under tremendous pressure, there are a myriad of reasons that make working in F&B sound far from a dream job to most. But there are those few out there who welcome these challenges and manage to do it with a smile still intact.

    Matcha mix-up

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 02/09/2016

    » Raving about Japanese produce is a common trait in many of us -- and to be fair, their cows do look a lot healthier than ours. Green tea and matcha in particular, is no different. If you're a green tea latte fan, we know how much you love the aroma, intensity, overt sweetness and what's probably a dangerous amount of calories that's involved in making this beverage.

    Work em' buns, hun.

    » If you're guilty of looking up "firmer butt exercises" on google, you are not alone. I do it every time a beach holiday approaches.

    Wallet-friendly wagyu

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 20/05/2016

    » Plenty of beef lovers out there will understand it when we say that not many things in life could ever amount to the satisfaction of tucking into a piece of steak cooked to your absolute liking. The birth of your first child, maybe. Winning the lottery, possibly. But aside from those occasions, cutting into a medium rare rib eye that has perfect marbling is rather hard to beat.

    Swish and sizzle

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 25/03/2016

    » Now, we know Salaya may seem a bit out of the way from somewhere like mid-Sukhumvit, but our venture to this low-key part of outer Bangkok proved to be more than worthwhile. Surprisingly, it only took us half an hour to get there, which is about the same amount of time you'd spend being stuck in Thong Lor's traffic on the weekend. Despite the fact that the owners are the same people behind Shabu King, this new joint is vastly different. Forget the lacklustre atmosphere of cramped spaces (like most shabu destinations) and say hello to a stunning countryside-style Japanese barn. The high ceilings let in plenty of natural light during the day time, which will no doubt impress any Instagrammer out there looking to snap up some serious #foodporn worthy photos of shabu shabu platters and sushi rolls.

    Sugar, ice and everything nice

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 01/04/2016

    » Good news, people. The National Research Department of All Delicious Things That Are Apparently Bad For You has made a new scientific discovery: low-calorie diets are actually bad for you. It is, in fact, better to consume fatty, sugary, carb-loaded foods, such as doughnuts, ice cream cake and chocolate frappes. Y'know, like how the Neanderthals were doing it for thousands of years before the vegans took over the world with their quinoa and chia seeds?

    Post-new year's syndrome

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 08/01/2016

    » Let's nip this in the bud. Holiday season is officially over. Phew, and we thought that was going to be hard to say. As it turns out, writing it down is much easier.Since we're not ones to mope nor sulk about how we've already broken the resolutions we set seven days ago (thanks to that piece of leftover cake in the fridge), we thought it best to give you, Dear Readers, a quick rundown on how to get over holiday withdrawal and grab life by the horns (and 2016 by the balls).
