    Killing me softly

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 10/12/2016

    » There's something simple, but exceedingly special about Tawjan Catherine Punyasingh's recently released cookbook Great Food Good Fest. A quick skim through would evoke the same reflex of going "awww" at dog pictures, except there are squid and salted egg lava buns in these pictures, instead. Something about it just warms your heart and fills you with a pressing urge to get up to make these dishes, even if you are the type that couldn't cook to save yourself. Perhaps it is the book's realistic nature, and as we meet at her home, she whips up a strawberry hazelnut chocolate tart and pumpkin and corn croquette for us -- something even the most hopeless can make this holiday season.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/04/2016

    » With his square-rimmed black glasses, perfectly-gelled hair and tall, lanky build, Isaac Hempstead Wright looks like the geeky but cute wallflower BFF that's just dropped out of a Hollywood teen flick. Of course, it was actually dropping out of a tower -- after witnessing Operation Incest -- that he is known for, in his role as Bran Stark from the wildly-popular series Game Of Thrones.

    » Japan is such a haven for all ages. Whether your calling is food, nature, shopping or Gundam models, there's much available to feed all senses, for everyone from those who have yet to walk to the barely walking. If you've got kids, there's the obvious option of Disneyland and toy paradise Kiddie Land, but past the crown of consumerism, the Land of the Rising Sun offers a bevy of development destinations where children not only play, but also learn in the process.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 16/10/2015

    » There's only good that can come out of eating for a cause. For the third year, Blue Elephant once again turns on their pink lights that beautifully splashes onto their century-old building on South Sathon to raise awareness for breast cancer. Throughout October, an a la carte "Pink Ribbon Menu" will be on offer, for both lunch and dinner, with proceeds from the menu benefiting Thai women in need at the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer (QSCBC).

    Sisterhood of the travelling bicycles

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/11/2014

    » 'It's different from being in a car," the tall blonde, Carlijn Bettink, says. "There's lots of interaction when you're on a bike, which is really good for travelling. We're four girls cycling in the heat and people just enjoy watching. When we try to go up hills, people are always laughing and they all go, 'You girls are crazy! What are you doing?!'."

This remarkable and majestic structure, a splendid example of British design and technology, is known as the Royal Yacht Britannia.

    » Dogs have always been more than a mere pet to Nathawee “Nat” Limpanilchart, who has been surrounded by canines all her life. Recently, she’s struck a publishing deal with Banlue Books, which has made her Facebook page, Maa Ja (Dog Please), into a book of the same name.

    A step in the right direction

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 18/03/2014

    » The health and fitness industry has grown at a spectacular pace as people have become more aware and concerned about their health. People today are more prepared to spend a greater proportion of their income on their health than before. For most, however, the gym experience probably doesn’t really conjure up any colourful and fun images but Virgin Active, established in the UK in 1999, is definitely striving to raise the bar and almost Disney-fying the experience.

    My invented history

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 06/11/2013

    » The political climate these past few days has given me enough inspiration (and audacity) to think that I might just make it as the next Isabel Allende. Peppered with some magical realism, but mostly stirred by my surroundings and TV broadcasts, I give you the synopsis of my future best-selling novel:
