    What's trending and happening this week

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/04/2018

    » 1. There's fun for the whole family this Songkran at Megabangna's Mega Splash ... Mega Lanna Happiness. The mall will turn into the ancient Kingdom of Lanna and will be extravagantly decorated with flags and lanterns. Activities at the Sook Jai Zone will feature Lanna-style performances such as Jeng dance, a northern elegant but exhilarating dance that has roots in martial arts. At the Sard Sanook Zone, splash away all the heat at the mobile water park, which will be equipped with a giant water slide and water tunnel. For some retro fun, there will also be a traditional temple fair, with all its old-fashioned ice pops, sugar candy sculptures, shooting galleries and dunk tank girls. Celebrate the festivities at Megabangna from 10am-7pm until tomorrow.

    Losing (and rediscovering) my religion

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 04/04/2016

    » In the recent wake of terrorist atrocities -- most infamously done in the name of religion -- I could not help but question my own line of faith that is Buddhism. Or perhaps "reconnect" would be a better way to put it, as a so-called modern day millennial who isn't a very avid temple-goer.

    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.

    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.

    Cool before cool

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 10/03/2018

    » If you ask Torsit Sarisdiwongse how long he has been with Greyhound Café, he will jokingly answer: "Since the day they planted the pillars down in Emporium." This is the very man who has perfected the recipes of hip fusion dishes such as salmon sashimi in hot spicy sauce or fried rice with pla salid 20 years ago -- long before cool and trendy proliferated Thailand's dining scene.

    » Some like it simple. Spas can definitely swing that way too, and if you want luxury without the whole ornate atmosphere of Marrakesh and glittery tiles, head over to the newly opened Panpuri Organic Spa at Park Hyatt.

    Colette's gone to H&M

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 05/08/2017

    » Instead of crying a river upon the news of Colette closing this Dec 20, it's probably a better idea to start planning your pilgrimage to the Parisian boutique before it shuts its doors forever -- if you've never visited this temple of cool before.

    All the way around

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 18/03/2017

    » It is hardly a surprise that despite being among the 10 most expensive marathons in the world, the Kyoto Marathon is the eighth-most-registered. Perhaps the picturesque mountains, free strawberries from spectators and smiling monks lend a hand. With 16,000 runners from around the world landing in this old capital and another 15,000 volunteers all along the 42km route, it's an event of a grand scale that sees the whole city on shutdown with people coming together to revitalise Kyoto through sport, especially since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. After its devastating impact, the annual running competition has been the city's global promotion strategy to present the wonders and green environment of Kyoto to the world -- all in a most organised and orderly manner.
