    Reading the leaves

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 09/12/2018

    » For desserts and other food to taste great, it's not only about the flavour. The smell is another important factor in making food all the more tasty. A lot of Thai food relies on smell, which mostly comes from leaves. Try imagining Thai food without kaffir lime leaves, basil, tamarind leaves or cha-om leaves. Now what would everything taste like?


    A social disease

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 24/09/2018

    » One of my favourite actors recently left this world prematurely due to frail health caused by chronic excessive drinking. It is sad, because Warut Woratham, once the country's No.1 heartthrob, had managed to quit drinking and opted for a healthy lifestyle a few years prior to his death, but the alcohol-related damage to his health had been done. Warut was just 49 when he died.

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 16/03/2018

Here we talk to three young Africans on everything from the popularity of Black Panther, to casual racism and overcoming cultural differences.

    Setting sail

    Guru, Nimarta Narang, Published on 10/11/2017

    » Bangkok has its charms, and there have been plenty of people enticed by this city. Yuval Schwok is one of them. Having grown up in Paris with a liberal Jewish background, Yuval always had a strong desire to travel and seek adventure. He accidentally arrived in Bangkok 14 years ago, and never quite left as he has now lived here for 12 years. It is quite fitting then that his first project was called The Overstay — a hostel, music venue and creative space all in one offering more than a place to stay for travellers and visitors. But for the past three years, Yuval has also been developing a new project called Bangkok Island, a boat that is set to be a prime venue for music and art. He hopes for it to not be like any other boat cruise, but rather a destination for artists and live music. We had a chat with The Overstay's founder about his new project, the challenges he has encountered and his take on the event scene in Bangkok.
