    It takes years to get things right

    Sports, Brett Brasier, Published on 05/11/2017

    » These past few weeks I've been trying to swing like Ben Hogan. I can hear a few of you saying that it might be a little late -- and I agree. If I had been able to understand his 'Five Fundamentals' (as I do now) when I started practising seriously as a young boy, my playing career, and bank account, might have been better!

    News, Published on 31/10/2017

    » For months, Facebook's headquarters in Menlo Park, California, has been in crisis mode, furiously attempting to contain the damage stemming from its role in last year's presidential campaign.

    Eat on. Game on.

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 08/09/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> It's a shame not a lot of people have heard about Hopeland. Within the offering of bars and restaurants at Thong Lor's 72 Courtyard, this one is at the very back on the the ground floor. At first glance, it seems to be your typical bar and restaurant. Lights in neon purple, steel tables, thumping music to get you going -- the usual. But don't judge a book by its cover. Hopeland does pride itself in its array of Korean dishes as well as its Tiki drinks, and we'll talk about that later. The thing that makes Hopeland special is its arcade games. And no, we're not just referring to those two arcade machines near the entrance and the kitchen where you can play games like Street Fighter and Tekken. There are also arcade games built into the tables. Yep, you read that right. While eating your food and nursing your drink, there's no need to get up from your seat; you can play some Pac-Man or Donkey Kong right there at your table. You can even take turns and play as two-players! You can game all you want, of course, but will you be feasting on good food as well? Or is Hopeland simply just another gimicky resto and bar? Read on.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 13/10/2017

    » Tanaporn "Faii" Oi-isaranukul (second from left) is a donor relations coordinator and food hygienist at ThaiHarvest-SOS (fb.com/thaiharvestsos, thaiharvestsos.org), a local food rescue foundation which raises awareness around food waste and combats it. So far, it has rescued 65 tonnes of edible excess food and collected around 120 tonnes in scraps of food to make compost. One kilo of food provides up to three meals. Do the maths.
