    The skin I live in

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/01/2019

    » The body is a temple. But it can also be a torture chamber, from which escape, while possible, is soul-crushing. Lukas Dhont's Girl is an emphatic, moving story about Lara (Victor Polster), a Belgian trans teen at an elite ballet school who's going through male-to-female gender reassignment. That she has to contend with her own hormones and pre-assigned biological specifics, as well as the fact that her chosen career mandates extreme rigour in how the body should bend and behave, Lara's fight is nothing short of heroic. And in that vein, the film is as well.

    » A familiar pok-pok sound greets me as I enter the newly-renovated Charoen Krung favourite, 80/20. This is intentional, I later learn, intended to remind diners that 80/20 is a Thai kitchen serving Thai cuisine. The expanded space has a wall with murals by local artist Luke Satoru and Khun Rose, the mother of one of 80/20's chefs.

    » If you were to guess what Rika Ishige does for a living, there's a 100% chance that you'll get it wrong. With her petite frame, sparkling doe-eyes and a cheeky smile that's able to light up a whole room, the half-Thai, half-Japanese 28-year-old could actually beat you to a pulp.

    Haus of burgers

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 07/09/2018

    » Just a few minutes' walk from BTS Ari, Cast Iron Burgerhaus has been open for almost 10 months but has already established itself as a go-to place in the area when you're craving a burger. The resto isn't that huge but what it lacks in size it compensates for with its chill feel. Its industrial decor gives it a ragged elegance with the bar being the centrepiece, which brings the entire quaint place together. No doubt you'll have no trouble settling in and that's great because now it's time to dig in.

    Warm, welcoming, rustic

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 24/08/2018

    » Mallard, a newish Mediterranean eatery is nestled half-way in the popular food soi that is Sukhumvit 49, attached to the Adelphi Forty-Nine Hotel. Named after the dabbling duck known for its adaptability, the restaurant's philosophy is "what we cook is who we are", with a focus on wild and exotic meats. The interior looks like a country farmhouse, with a patio and terrace seating, complete with potted plants, outdoor fans (to keep the hot summer days cool), animal trophies, antler chandeliers and wood and leather furniture. Warm lighting completes the look, which includes a bar in the centre of the restaurant. A very macho restaurant.
