    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 28/10/2016

    » These three happy faces you see are the founders of TRIBE, the spanking new indoor cycling studio located in the bustling Ratchadamri neighbourhood. Business partners, they may be, but this trio have been friends since childhood. Their shared passion for spinning led them to create a totally new workout concept that was not only focused on exercise but also on building a community of like-minded individuals who share an interest in fitness, fashion and music. We caught up with Ploy Bhinsaeng, Pasu "Luang" Liptapanlop and Natapa "Joy" Sriyuksiri to find out more about the studio and what the best track is to spin to right now.

    All in the family

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 12/08/2017

    » Sitamon "Peach" Pholdee is adorned in huge, glittery musical notes that dangle from her ears and is wearing Sretsis and Saint Laurent silver boots -- thus confirming all the gab we've heard before that she is always excessively and fabulously dressed. That she must be in the spotlight as a consequence of being married to the nation's ultimate heartthrob, Jesdaporn "Tik" Pholdee, has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Building a company that lasts

    Life, Usnisa Sukhsvasti, Published on 22/02/2018

    » The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are not merely a global agenda or war cry for sustainable development that is being taken up by governments around the world. To move forward towards global prosperity, there has to be a balance and interaction between economic and social health. As such, business corporations have an equal responsibility and, increasingly, a need, to incorporate sustainable practices into their operations and management systems. It is not just a public-relations exercise, but a factor that will give them an edge, and also provide for long-term growth in a world where business no longer caters simply to a small circle of "customers" or "shareholders", but the wider target of "stakeholders".

    » Transgender drag queen Angele Anang lowered to the floor as she was pushed around and thrown away by a group of masked men. Her wig was removed. Nude, she crawled to her father, who was sitting nearby. He put a white flowing dress on her, crying as he did so. Angele, then bald and in white, went back to fight the masked men, over whom she proudly triumphed.

    Bangkok psycho's on our sofa

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 02/06/2017

    » This week Guru chatted with the local artist and photographer Dop Ameen. Originally from France, he began his artistic pursuits here seven years ago during a solo motorcycle/ photography trip around Southeast Asia. He fell in love with what he captured and he's been pushing artistic boundaries in this hemisphere ever since. He has developed a series called Bangkok Psycho, a deviant art concept that focuses on the paradoxical tendencies of Bangkok and its dwellers. You can observe his latest works, "Bangkok Psycho — The Bride Edition" (goo.gl/PXuJyn) from Jun 8-15 at Maggie Choo's.

    ShopBack, The Ultimate Middle Man

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 28/07/2017

    » Did you know that there is a way to make money every time you spend it? Say hello to ShopBack, the future of e-commerce. ShopBack is a mobile phone app with a lengthy list of stores, vendors, and services offering the cheapest deals on everything from air travel to high heels and every transaction made through this app rewards shoppers with a decent percentage of their cash back. How is this possible? ShopBack operates solely off commission from these vendors and services. They take a majority of that commission and return it to the buyer. At the forefront of ShopBack is Kawin Prachanukul, a young and ambitious marketing guru who is the co-founder and country head of ShopBack Thailand. He was raised in Bangkok and has a degree in marketing from Thammasat Business School. He's been in e-commerce since leaving university, joining the operations team at Lazada, and then moving to Uber in 2014. Through his expertise and experience, he's made the leap to country head of this revolutionary start-up and was thrilled to give Guru the round-up on ShopBack.

    » Somsak "Pai" Boonkam is the founder and CEO of Local Alike (http://fb.com/LocalAlike), although he does prefer the title social worker, as this describes what he does through his noted social enterprise more accurately.

Pai tells us how people can give back while expanding their horizons through travel.

    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.
