    Meaningful Journeys

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 24/05/2019

    » Tourism can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it can generate profit for the economy while on the other it can exploit natural resources. This problem is all too relevant in Thailand but there are niche travel companies that offer unique experiences providing positive benefits to our culture. If you're bored of going to the typical Thai tourist spots and long to do things more than the average tourist, then look no further. Guru complied a list of travel companies making a difference in the country.

    » To celebrate Central Embassy's 5th anniversary, New York-based design studio Snarkitecture has set up a minimalist yet fun art installation on the shopping mall's Ground Level. Dubbed Tilting Forest, the second installation by Snarkitecture after The Beach in 2017, it places a number of blue-and-white towering cones where people can wander about, get lost and even push the cones to move them as if they are swaying trees. Benjamin Porto, a partner at Snarkitecture, spoke to Guru about the project.

    Thai Proverbs: 2019 Version

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 17/05/2019

    » New words get coined all the time. So why can't our good old sayings be updated to the present? Classic Thai proverbs often refer to things we see or use every day but some proverbs have become outdated or unrelatable. For example, "While water rises, quickly store it." Do most people still fill their buckets with water from the river and store it in earthen jars at home? I don't think so. Therefore, here are a few suggestions of updated Thai proverbs along with new references that people can relate to, for your consideration.

    Green thumb

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 17/05/2019

    » Maybe a few of us have forgotten the smog that engulfed us in the beginning of the year, making leaving the house a game of "to choke or not to choke". Now it is the scorching heat that seems to be worse than before. While short-term solutions do a little to elevate, we know that the root of the problem is climate change. If we don't take action now, it's going to get worse later. Bangkok has its share of eco-problems whether it's pollution or waste, but instead of listing them, we can figure out ways of how we can help, even in small doses. And technology has made this easier. Guru has listed a few of the best apps in the climate change business to help you help the environment.

    Street Food Success

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 17/05/2019

    » After working as a seamstress for several years and losing everything in a fire, Supinya Junsuta, better known as Jay Fai, would go on to become the owner and sole chef of her eponymous street food restaurant. Recognisable by her use of giant woks over two charcoal braziers, ski mask goggles and exuberant energy when cooking, her shophouse restaurant earned a Michelin star in 2017, becoming the first street food restaurant to do so. The eatery has become a popular foodie destination for locals and tourists alike, who are eager to try her signature dishes such as her stir-fried noodles, tom yum and of course, the crab omelette. The veteran chef was recently featured in the Netflix series Street Food, Thailand being one of the nine Asian countries highlighted. We chat with Jay Fai on what it's like to be where she is today.
