    » Illustrator Phannapast "Yoon" Taychamaythakool took on her biggest canvas to date at MRT Wat Mangkon where she created murals for Nescafe. Beautiful Chinese imageries fit the station's location in Yaowarat and come alive via AR technology. Her illustrations have adorned various canvases from mooncake packaging to a hi-end speaker. She had a major exhibition earlier this year at Gaysorn Village, while Gucci and Instagram are among the leading brands that have commissioned her. Guru spoke to Yoon about her journey as an artist.

    One on one with Eleven

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 28/06/2019

    » A bazillion of suspicious rats. More of Eleven's nose bleeding and superpower. Mike smooching with El. Will's ongoing connection to The Upside Down. Something that caused Dustin to go, "Holy Mother of God". A new mall where you have fun and also hide from monsters (as you do). And Billy's mullet. These are just some of the strange things coming to Hawkins in the third season of Stranger Things. (see what I did?)

Guru chatted with Prince about how urban farming can benefit city life, in case you may want to get out your shovels and garden forks.

    The road to redemption

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 21/09/2018

    » Akkarin "Rung" Puri spent almost half of his life behind bars. Instead of hiding his dark past, he's open about his ex-inmate status and uses it to inspire convicts to change their way and campaign for understanding and, more importantly, second chance for them to be part of society again. A guitar maker (Be Light Guitar; fb.com/belightguitar) and speaker at prisons, Rung talked to us about his long road to redemption.

    Exploring lesser travelled paths

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 18/05/2018

    » Ray MacDonald is a Thai-Scottish actor/model/TV host who first came into the public's radar as the eccentric co-host of Teen Talk on Channel 5 back in the 90s (sorry, if this reference makes you feel old). He went on to star in many films, commercials and appear on magazine covers. But lately, it seems he has been bitten by the travel bug and can't get over it, resulting in travel shows with unique spins that he has produced and hosted. Food Tribe on LINE TV (three new episodes from Wednesdays to Fridays), his latest effort, yet again showcases his passion for exploring the paths less travelled. He visited tribe people in different parts of the world and went super local, and by that, we mean he lived, hunted and ate with them. Though Food Tribe is half way through, we think you will miss out on something if you don't give it a look. If that doesn't make you want to watch, we spoke to Ray, too.

    » We first interviewed Thai-German Michael Biedassek for his role as the co-founder of bangkokvanguards, a unique travel agent which explores undiscovered paths in Bangkok. Michael is also involved in raising awareness on preserving local communities and organising the "Santa Cause" (http://fb.com/SantaCauseBangkok) event every year to provide gifts and necessities for less privileged children and their families. We wondered what he had been up to lately and what the upcoming Santa Cause would entail.
