    Roll up! Free ice cream in Bangkok

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/06/2016

    » Mark your calendars because the season where parlours give ice cream out for free is here! No need to scream for ice cream, but be prepared to run for it tomorrow for a free scoop. American chain Cold Stone, famous for their ice cream mix-in, will be celebrating their "Free Ice Cream Day" tomorrow, from 1pm onwards. Customers can choose between a scoop of Chocolate Devotion or Strawberry Blonde at every branch across the country, with the exception of Suvarnabhumi airport. Hop to it though, because they're only giving out 355 cones per branch! The brand has arrived on our hot shores for six years and to celebrate that, there's also a 20% discount on all ice cream until the end of July.

    Tailored eyewear

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/02/2016

    » When you sell glasses that don't use a single screw -- that can be sat on, bent and even left under the sun for hours in awkward angles and not break -- the product clearly speaks for itself. In fact, Berlin-based eyewear company Mykita is so refreshingly free from marketing gloss that their spring summer campaign for 2016 simply uses the founder's friend's daughter, his dog and his dog-sitter as models.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 10/09/2015

    » Kenny Ortega has another hit on his hands. If there's a movie featuring dancing, then we tend to think of this acclaimed American director, producer and choreographer. Ortega is behind various cult musical phenomena that different generations of teens have grown up with, from the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, Michael Jackson's This Is It concerts, to the globally-embraced High School Musical trilogy.

    The beauty of big

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

    » Art-appreciating and collecting couple Akapol Sudasna and Supamas Phahulo's decision whether to build a gallery or not was cemented after running into Wisut Ponnimit one day. When the comic artist agreed to be their first featured artist, construction for the new space, which would become a massive, trendy white box, would begin. Sitting on a corner in Sathorn Soi 1 are two exhibition rooms -- the main hall could easily host a concert while the smaller side is a space and retail shop. Hoping to cultivate new collectors along the way and to get more people interested in art, Bangkok Citycity Gallery will be showcasing contemporary works that also appeal to the masses beyond the art crowd.

    Tied to a Sino past

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 04/05/2015

    » The unavoidable and never-failing icebreaker -- do you have any Chinese blood? -- will always have its place in Thai society. Yet it's also something of an empty question, believes Singaporean author Jeffery Sng: "By the time Phibunsongkhram changed the country's name to Thailand, the Thais were already so mixed that it was hard to find anyone 100% Thai."

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 31/10/2014

    » Leave it to the electronic tongue and nose to distinguish how deliriously delicious or insanely crappy a certain tom yum tastes. If Thai food is to have a distinctive uniform recognised by the whole world, well, a standard's got to start somewhere right?
