    Talking Bright

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/01/2018

    » Released globally a few weeks ago, Bright is the ambitious Netflix original genre-bending film that stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton as cops in a present-day Los Angeles inhabited by mythical creatures like orcs and elves. The film is Netflix's biggest film to date with a budget of $90 million as well as a global press tour prior to the film's release. Guru was able to be part of the Japan premiere and press junket and had an opportunity to talk to producers Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless, director David Ayer (who also directed Will Smith in Suicide Squad), and actress Noomi Rapace about Bright.

    Just a couple of foodies

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/02/2018

    » It's that time of the year when couples come out in full-force, restaurants are jampacked, roses and chocolates are more expensive, and single people are more bitter than usual. Yes, St Valentine's Day is upon us and that means couples all over the place. We could have just given you a list of places you could go to for a special dinner (actually, we did -- check our Food listings). But in lieu of the upcoming "festivities", if you could call it that, we decided to round up a number of foodie power couples to get to know their favourite restos and what they do during on this romantic day. Perhaps we noobs could learn a thing or two from them.

    Clasically new

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/03/2018

    » Remember Nokia, the original sleek, cool and virtually indestructible mobile phone? The company that ruled the mobile phone industry in its heyday and gave us the game Snake right in the palm of our hands and also that memorable ringtone? For years after the smartphone came to being, Nokia disappeared from the radar. Now, they're making a comeback. The Nokia 8 is their most advanced model and though it may not match up with the likes of the latest releases of Apple and Samsung, it's a worthy and cheaper alternative.

    Summer checklist

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 06/04/2018

    » The blistering heat and scorching sun has made it evident that summer is upon us. The bad news is that it's likely to get hotter from here on. The good news is that the city is going to be an all-out water war zone in a few weeks. Aside from that, there are plenty of things to do during this summer. But if you're scatterbrained like us, can't organise yourself and will probably end up lounging on the couch eating a tub of ice cream (which is not a bad idea, actually), you can stop fretting. We've compiled a summer to-do list for you.

    Artisanal eats

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 04/05/2018

    » Technology is a blessing and a curse. It makes life easier and in turn makes us lazy and have short attention spans. We want things done quick and we want things now, and we've lost the appreciation for the art and process of handmade products and the skill it requires because hey, if robots can do it, why can't people? That makes things made by hand more special despite the fact that that's the way things have been done for years. Handmade means nothing, however, if it also isn't high quality. Luckily, the Big Mango is home to a number of stores that produce top-tier artisanal products -- more specifically, artisanal food, which we think makes it more special because nothing is more special than food, right? You may not be aware of some of these stores (we admit we ourselves weren't aware some of them existed) but hey, that's why we're here -- to tell you about them so all you have to do is feast and enjoy. Here are five artisanal eats in Bangkok that you should try.

    Historic stays

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 18/05/2018

    » New hotels popping up around the city are a common sight in Bangkok. It's a delight to see that tourism isn't slowing down and that the city is being modernised more and more each day. The downside is that the essence and spirit of old Bangkok may be forgotten amid the urbanisation. However, there are a few who choose to not only preserve the old culture of the city, but also share it with people from out of town. We've got four hotels with rich histories you could check in at for a different experience.

    Alright, Alright, Alright

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/06/2018

    » The Nokia 6 is the latest model from the Finnish company that's putting them back in the smartphone game. While this is their latest model, it's not as advanced as their top-tier Nokia 8 (duh), which we previously reviewed. The Nokia 6 is the company's entry to mid-range smartphones, and if you're considering buying one, we think it's an option aside from the usual big name smartphones out there.
