    Pop culture explosion

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 09/05/2014

    » Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers will invade Bangkok this weekend! And no, we’re not saying that as a side effect of the Star Wars marathon we went on to celebrate Star Wars Day (May 4) or the announcement of the Star Wars: Episode VII cast. It’s because Thailand Comic Con 2014 is taking place from today until Sunday (May 9-11) at Siam Paragon and the arch-villain and his soldiers will make an appearance there. This week, to help you embrace your inner geek (we all have one — don’t be in denial), we present what you can expect from the pop culture event along with other ways to geek out in Bangkok.

    Dim sum fun

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 09/05/2014

    » THE SET-UP: Sure, you can get your dumplings or salapao from 7-Eleven or a mobile vendor uncle, but their offerings are mainly for sustenance only. Luckily enough, we Bangkokians have many options to take the dim sum experience to a savoury level with the all-you-can-eat options from the hotel restaurants out there. Chyna is one such place and, as suggested by its name, it tries to put new spins on Chinese dishes. Behind the tall windows of Chyna lies a spacious and airy main dining area. There are two private rooms that can be merged once the partition is retracted, in case your clan wants to organise an annual gathering (so everyone remembers where they are in the complicated family tree). The outdoor area overlooks a nearby temple and the city beyond in case you want a view. The regular patrons during weekdays are businesspeople while friends and families come in the evenings and on weekends. Chinese and French hotel guests staying at Centra Central Station also stop by.
