    Everything's coming up Rosewood

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Rosewood is not a name that rings any personal bells, but I first unknowingly came across it while on a night out in Beijing. The so-far-lousy night took a turn when the social editor of a high-society magazine ushered me to get off my stool at the dingy bar we were in. We were first-timers in Beijing and unlike the Western press in the group, she was in no mood for pole dancers and Mandarin rock covers. She was the most well-informed and refined tippler of the Thai group, so we trustingly followed her taste to Rosewood Beijing, knowing whatever it was, it wasn't going to be the Chinese version of Patpong. It was the right decision, the one we should have gone with three hours earlier. What greeted us upon arrival were stunning high ceilings, stylish understatement and immense relief that there are chic and modern places to head to in the post-Mao capital.


    A broad canvas

    » Not all of us will make our mark as Mona Lisa, but it is possible to be the centre star of an art piece. If you are a self-confessed shutterbug and lover of art, an interactive art exhibition is currently ongoing at Emporium right now under the name Museum of Me (MOME). Inside the pink pastel box, which has just popped up inside their department store, this museum's showcase will not be complete without its main exhibition: you. Get snapped upon entering MOME and get ready to see yourself turned into art works by 10 different artists. The summer museum visit all ends at the museum gift shop, which of course, sells mementos that star you.

    Scouting out new superheroes

    » C.B. Cebulski may have been working at Marvel Comics for the past 17 years, but figuratively, he's been with the superhero powerhouse for 40 years -- becoming a fan the second his father handed him his first X-Men comic when he was five.


    Longing for a better Comic Con

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 06/05/2016

    » Very little squealing went down at this year's Bangkok Comic Con -- at least from yours truly. The massive geeky gig last weekend, now in its third year, was again hosted at BITEC this past weekend, although this year by True Visions and not the old co-host, BEC Tero. If you missed it, you didn't miss very much, as the smaller, local booths (distributors of books, DVDs, merchandise) that did not join BCC made for a pretty dull affair.


    Sheltered paradise

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/09/2018

    » One of the greatest things in life is to be able to do anything, anywhere, at your own pace while on holiday. I may have the extreme in mind (when you can afford to wake up at 3pm, begin your day at 5pm or get a decent slice of culture all within a short walk away), but if convenience and not having to catch some weird local sickness are part of the package, then why not, right? Of course, not all of us may be free to travel during the high season, when there are no storms to put a damper on our getaway. But even if money cannot buy impeccable weather, it can still buy you an exquisite holiday experience and pictures, if you just know where to look.


    Houses worthy of a fortune

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/08/2018

    » It happens only once a decade or so. This is a reference to Sansiri's flagship super-luxury projects, where the creation of the most exclusive condominiums and opulent houses are up for grabs. This year, it's Baan Sansiri Pattanakarn, where resplendent white houses (all lakorn-cameo worthy) have been erected on Pattanakarn 30. Inspired by the Regency era, much of the design aesthetics on these 37 rai of land will be derived from what is considered the golden age of arts and culture in 19th-century England.


    Where a good time is prime

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Different resorts are suitable for different things. On the Phuket holidaying circuit, one of the most prevalent names you're likely to come across steadily is Sri Panwa, the pool villa spectacularly managed by the Issara clan. Its photogenic rooftop bar, Baba Nest, is packed with beautiful socialites that will flood your social-media feed all year round. However, there's another Baba that's also generating some buzz, and it's certainly well suited to those who would rather dance the night away than flex for the 'Gram.


    A getaway within a getaway

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 23/06/2018

    » It can be argued that Phuket is a wellness retreat capital of sorts -- with many destinations offering spa and alternative therapies to choose from. There are no shortages of options on the island, but if you are ready to splurge, the latest top-of-the-line name to keep in mind right now is Asaya. Nestled at the recently opened Rosewood Phuket, this is the hotel's very first holistic wellness concept to be launched globally, with more branches to be rolled out at various Rosewood properties around the world.


    Ain't no stopping us now

    » 'I would like to thank my friends and family for supporting me through all this and letting me know that it's OK to study rotting leaves," said Professor Amy T. Austin during her acceptance speech last month in Paris. There was good humour and chuckles rang throughout the Unesco House, but there was also an underlying distress that provides a portal to understanding what sort of tribulations female scientists must go through.
