    Post-new year's syndrome

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 08/01/2016

    » Let's nip this in the bud. Holiday season is officially over. Phew, and we thought that was going to be hard to say. As it turns out, writing it down is much easier.Since we're not ones to mope nor sulk about how we've already broken the resolutions we set seven days ago (thanks to that piece of leftover cake in the fridge), we thought it best to give you, Dear Readers, a quick rundown on how to get over holiday withdrawal and grab life by the horns (and 2016 by the balls).

    Healthy helpings

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 18/12/2015

    » Now, I know it's Christmastime, and the farthest thing on your mind is eating clean and calorie-counting. Can you really blame us for wanting a good roast and a huge slice of pie? 'Tis the season, after all, for indulgent meals.

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 11/12/2015

    » Following in Dubai's footsteps, Thailand is now seeing some of the most incredible entertainment centres. It seems as if there's nothing this country can't do -- from snow towns and trampoline parks to surfing complexes, we've got it all. Or so it seems.

    The bread winner

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/11/2015

    » Desperate times call for desperate measures, and when you’re living in Bangkok, a city that seems to have everything — apart from a branch of Pret A Manger — to curb your sandwich cravings, you look to Google for a solution.

    Winter Wonderlands

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/11/2015

    » Can you feel that? The winter breeze is finally passing through Thailand. Well, either that or you’ve just walked through 7-Eleven’s doors. Nevertheless, it’s nearly December, and what does this mean? Scouring Uniqlo for fleeces on discount, “sick” day planning, last-minute reports, fantasising about what to do with your year-end bonus and, of course, checking which parties are worth hitting up. To save you some time, Guru has compiled a guide to festivals and fairs that will take place before the new year arrives. Sobriety, of course, is not guaranteed.

    The chilling beast of Thong Lor

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/08/2015

    » Ice cream will always be a big hit in a sweltering country like Thailand. So what happens when you represent an ice cream brand with a bright blue storefront and cutesy monsters?

    Trick of the eye, treat for the lens

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 21/08/2015

    » As much as I love the outdoors, the rainy season has convinced me that staying inside is slightly better than finding myself at a hospital, diagnosed with influenza.

    Tricks of the traits

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/03/2015

    » Bangkokians are a rare — and confusing — breed. When the economy looks grim, we build more shopping malls. When there is a protest or coup, we turn it into a music festival. When there’s too much pollution, we suck it in like it’s the smell of fresh laundry. To be called a Bangkokian is something that must be earned. Residing around Sukhumvit and spending a quarter of your time stuck in traffic may score you a few points, but believe us, it takes a lot more than that before you can really embrace the status. But fear not, dear readers — Guru has compiled an instruction manual of the basic Bangkokian traits you need to grasp (or at least know about) to blend in with the locals.

    Simple sophistication

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 02/01/2015

    » Deep dish, thin and crispy, folded, oozing with cheese — so many options and so many pizzerias to choose from. Yet, everyone has their favourite — a sacred place if you will. And god forbid if somebody else comes along and tells you that their go-to place is better. Countless verbal wars have been sparked by this topic, much like the endless discussion of best burger and noodle bowl. We commend Sfizio's valour for being the brave new Italian kid on the block who, for once, isn't interested in brick walls, wood-fired ovens, candles and opera singers. Instead, they opted for a modern look with a laid-back atmosphere. The cosy 22-seater restaurant feels like a friend's house (if you have an impressive Italian chef as your friend, that is) and serves up authentic Italian salads, pizza, pasta and desserts. Slightly hidden from the bustling street of Asok, the diners here are office workers, expats who reside in the area and returning customers who can't get enough of Sfizio.
