    Shopping with all your senses

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 30/03/2018

    » It feels like there is an Hour Glass store at practically every main street corner in Singapore, but the Hour Glass store that rules them all is situated on Bideford Road, just off Orchard and right next to Paragon. Fashioned under the name Malmaison and having sat at that location since 2011, the opulent enclave of 745m² is largely under the radar to the common pedestrian, despite the fact that what is housed inside could well become your most lush watch-buying experience ever. Even a local tour guide confirms that most Singaporeans are oblivious to the lavish encounter that awaits inside.


    Timelessness in a bottle

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/04/2017

    » Considering her lifelong love for cosmetics, Muriel Pujos couldn't have asked for a better job. Based in New York and working for Philosophy, Pujos's latest responsibility has been going on a global tour to unveil the skincare brand's latest serum, which promises to resist, renew and repair the skin for women of all age groups. Aptly named Time In A Bottle, the serum part even lets you have a bit of mad-scientist fun. With a bright-red vial of activator, rich in Himalayan red-rice extract and red-grape-ferment extract to resist tomorrow's signs of ageing, you'll have to pour this liquid into the main serum and shake for 20 seconds before first use. This latest 3D technology ensures the freshness of the product and works even better with their lotion of the same name, when used twice daily. Recently in Bangkok for the launch of Time In A Bottle, the scientific communication director tells us how she runs the world of beauty and science.


    Damn everlasting

    » Only one word can encapsulate Tattoo Colour and what it's like to be sitting in the same room with them: guan teen. This would roughly translate to its members' smartass demeanour. It is no wonder that this energy, time and time again, makes their music feel like the equivalent of your all-knowing college BFF giving you a pat on the back (or smack in the head) when love goes bitter.


    Disney for days

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 06/08/2016

    » Two American things Thais really like come together this season. As one of the exclusive projects that celebrate American pop culture and to commemorate Coach's 75th anniversary, the house of leather joins hands with the House of Mouse to create limited-edition bags that play canvas to the world's most famous mouse. With sketches created by Disney's animators, Mickey Mouse sits on the signature glove-tanned leather of totes, bag packs, wallets and messenger bags. Like the previous Peanuts collection, the embossed character at the bottom of the bag is a bit of a blink-and-you'll-miss decoration, but this time, there are bold hang-tags in the shape of Mickey's gloves and face also. If you'd rather proclaim your love more loudly, some bags have the actual Mickey Mouse ear sprouting out from body, which can be spotted a mile away, be it in black or the very red of Mickey's two-buttoned pants. Find the Disney x Coach collection at Coach stores in CentralWorld, The EmQuartier and Siam Paragon.

    » Hailed as a woman who has revived modern tap dance, Sarah Reich commands a strong following -- her YouTube videos have garnered almost 1 million views. Fusing a funky street style and catchy beats of today with classic tap techniques, it's not just swing music that she taps into: Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and Star Wars theme songs are among her playlist. The tap awakens, indeed.


    Asia focus

    » Internationally best-selling author Kevin Kwan chuckles when he describes what his movie producers come across when scouting for locations or attending posh parties in Singapore with the local film crowd.


    The wealth of health

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 25/09/2015

    » His words tumble out slowly and at times repetitively, without the groomed articulation that one might expect of a global magnate whose job is also to be the poster boy of his empire. He continuously fiddles with a sugar pot. Up close, he seems wirier than in pictures, and save for the iconic long hair and beard, the 65-year-old Brit on the other side of the table looks nothing like one of the world's most influential billionaires.


    Filthy rich, and loving it

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 10/08/2015

    » Days of back-breaking labour in the desolate boonies, farming for their lives, is a stale cliché concerning the Chinese. Women are no longer under some ring of patriarchal oppression and they contemptuously shun haute couture dresses bedecked with phoenix and dragon embroidery. This is a new and brave China we are talking about -- they are not just crazy rich -- they are China Rich, as Kevin Kwan's second book title aptly coins it. 


    The international voice

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/06/2015

    » A thousand unread messages are waiting for Nida "Rimi" Doowa in the hilariously named chat group "Choom Tang Siang Tong" (Junction Of Golden Voices) on Line. Her fellow contestants from The Voice Thailand Season 2 are clearly a chatty bunch, but the Thai-born Indian smiles at the thought of other things the show has brought her in launching her music career.


    Tomorrowland magic short-lived

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/05/2015

    » Overbearing social activists, environmentalists and vegans on my Facebook newsfeed can probably instil a message more original — and even inspiring — than what this 129-minute sci-fi romp can. Tomorrowland is a dystopian flick stuck in limbo, masquerading as a wondrous flight but is, in truth, a preachy bore.
