    Data security a foreign concept

    News, Alan Dawson, Published on 22/04/2018

    » You'd think that just about the worst thing that could happen in today's charged smartphone-internet intersection is the theft of many thousands of the most important identification documents and personal details of mobile phone owners. But you'd be wrong.

    Hear her roar!

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 12/04/2018

    » Katy Perry, pixie-haired and ever ebullient, roared through her second appearance in Bangkok on Tuesday night with professionalism, humour and ease. This pop-spectacle is as much a visual experience as it is an aural one -- in fact, the visual overwhelmed our attention for the most parts of the 120-minute gig. The stage -- and wardrobe -- dripped with red at one point, shimmered with silver at another, and Perry's team deployed a full arsenal of wacky props, girlish delight and zany sight gags. We even had a fart joke at one point, perhaps the first I ever heard live on the stage from Impact Arena. Perry's appeal cuts a broad swathe across the demographic, and we had a rainbow of humanity thronging the hall: office types, teenagers, party animals, hipsters, Cosplay queens, the LGBT camp, celebrities, people who think they're celebrities, girls in candy-coloured wigs, parents and children -- I mean, first-graders and stuff, lots of them in fact, arriving in cheerful anticipation and looking tired when the proceedings advanced past 11pm. In all, it looked like a cross section between the crowd at a Madonna gig and Disney On Ice. Such is the strange pull of Perry.

    Welcome to the Mancave

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 13/04/2018

    » As evidenced by its name and our headline, the inspiration for Caveman Base's design and concept is a mancave. No, not like the one in a basement that reeks of beer, a certain type of plant meant to be smoked and dirty laundry. Rather, it's the mancave of anyone's dreams: consoles, board games, beer in bottles or tap and an air hockey table. That's the whole concept of the place, but that doesn't mean ladies are forbidden (we're pretty sure there are more than a few females who can dish out a beating in Tekken better than any other dudes). In fact, the look and feel of the place invites everyone to pull up a chair, order some grub and drinks, and get rowdy over boardgames, a game of Mario Kart or maybe a few rounds of beer pong. And that's exactly what patrons of the almost five-month-old establishment have been doing. But aside from the fun and games, Caveman Base's menu caters to adrenaline-pumping appetite acquired after back-stabbing friends at UNO.

    Detention centres stuck in past century

    Spectrum, Published on 18/02/2018

    » 'Thailand 4.0" is the military government's oft-heard catchphrase, but Thailand's immigration detention system is a relic from a previous century. The need for detention centre reform is not simply humanitarian, but economic, social and political.

    Sports, Brett Brasier, Published on 07/02/2015

    » Why many of us play golf is for health reasons, and my tip this week is to contemplate the benefits to your body of actually trying to hit that little white ball. We all know that a regular walk is good for us but did you know golfers live five years longer?

    50 shades of cheese

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 02/03/2018

    » Blink and you'll miss it! The entrance to Ekamai 16 is rather small, narrow and the street sign is barely visible among Bangkok's iconic wire tangle. But what it leads to is a new restaurant serving good old American fare, complete with craft beers -- The Fat Tap. The casual setting in a townhouse is all wood, which is a step up from owner Matthew Fischer's very popular Fatty's Bar and Diner on Din Daeng. The Fat Tap has the cosy feel of a hip hostel, minus the backpackers, with long wooden benches softened by throw pillows. Classic tracks from yesteryear blast in the background and add more character compared to the other pricey craft beer places found in the area.
