    Wine Me Dine Me Indeed

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 13/01/2017

    » <B>The Setting: </B>Cantina Wine Bar & Italian Kitchen graces Ari with its first trattoria, a restaurant serving up true Italian comforts. Managed by Soho Hospitality, the group that has also brought us Havana Social, Charcoal and Above Eleven, it's no wonder the interior of this cozy and casual little Italian spot is so on point. Candle-lit for its evening opening hours, the best date seats are near the windows or against the rustic brick walls. Winos, however, will demand for the tables at the base of the glorious wine cellar in the middle of the restaurant. To reach the top of this bottle library, you'd have to climb the wooden ladder perched against it, or swing from the chandelier from the second floor. We recommend neither. You should just ask the staff, unless the owner of the establishment Matthew Milotich is already grabbing you some of the good stuff. But no matter where you sit in this intimate setting, you've got a view of the wine and of chefs hustling behind the counter. Pizza chefs work in calmer situations up at a baking station on a more private second floor.

    Dragged by the heals

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 17/03/2017

    » We did it. We've gone where no other BKK lifestyle publication has gone before for a story. We went drag. Nope, we didn't just stand on the sidelines, ask questions and admire. We went in, literally, as far as you can go, and experienced it first-hand for ourselves. And who else would we entrust with all the hair glue, glitter and lip-overlining other than the one and only leading Thai drag diva extraordinaire Pangina Heals.

    Feelings only

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 23/09/2016

    » The most interesting thing happening at the EM District right now is the annual EmQuartier Art Festival. Aside from the art market and creative workshops for you to swan-dive into, the festival's main exhibition should definitely be on your agenda, as it is the first dual exhibition between two masters of Thai abstract art, Somyot Hananuntasuk and Somboon Hormtientong. Guru catches up with the legends to get a better understanding of what draws them towards abstract art and what it has meant to them for the last 40 years and counting.

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 16/09/2016

    » Luxury bag owners and collectors will know too well the necessity of taking your Louis's and Chanels to "the spa" for a touch up, if not total repair.

    Inked for a week

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 24/06/2016

    » What's left to talk about in style after clothes, accessories, hair and make-up, but skin? And we're not just after skincare, which takes ages to show subtle results, but something trendy you can do to your skin instantly, temporarily and harmlessly for some dramatic self-expression. The hot topic in style this week is sticker tattoos. The benefits of this form of peel-on skin décor are vast, ranging from deliberately annoying conservative folks to entertaining the idea of getting a real one. Whatever your motive, you gotta know what's out there, and that's where we come in. Guru reviews three local vendors for temporary tatts, all of which can be ordered via your phone.

    Brilliantly Basic

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 27/05/2016

    » As depressing as it sounds, basic clothing is like that one underappreciated friend who's constantly got our backs. It may be because, individually, basic pieces are so underwhelming, possibly even unattractive, that we don't worship them like those unique, glamourous friends who may end up screwing us over when the tides change. Basic would never do that though, so this week we recognise the simple items we need in our closet.

    It's not all about the pancakes

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 10/02/2017

    » <b>The setting</b>: Get used to knowing what Siam Paragon's North Zone refers to because that's where many new and exciting restaurants have been popping up, one of them of course being the famous Clinton Street Baking Company. The Bangkok branch may not be located in ideal surroundings, compared to the original standalone in Lower East Side New York, but efforts to emulate the vibes as close as possible are commendable. The diner is open before the mall, at 8am, same as the New York one. There's direct access via the cobblestone road between Siam Kempinski and Siam Paragon, so you can avoid stepping foot in the mall altogether. The red diner couches are there and so is the iconic red ridged storefront. Even the table setting, complete with a bottle of Tabasco, seems to be doing something purposely to make us feel nostalgic for US diners.
