    To be young, gifted and Thai

    Brunch, Suwitcha Chaiyong, Published on 13/01/2019

    » By the time we’re 11 years old, most of us know how to prepare something simple like a fried egg or a sandwich. But if we’re asked for more sophisticated fare, like lobster, for example, or, say, southern-style soup mousse with sablefish, then that would probably leave most of us scratching our heads.


    Don't have a cow, man

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 06/01/2019

    » Today, people aren't eating as much beef as they used to. There are many reasons for this. Some feel cows are noble creatures that help and live with farmers, and it would be a pity to eat them. Some feel that beef is too expensive, up to twice the price of pork or three times the price of chicken. It's tougher to chew and digest. If you worship Ganesh or Guan Yin, it's a sin to eat beef.

    When good intentions backfire

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 06/01/2019

    » "Sometimes/ It falls upon a generation/ To be great/ I ask all humanity now/ To rise up/ Then we can all stand/ With our heads/ Held high," begins the Chris Martin-curated Global Citizen EP 1 with opener Rise Up featuring an excerpt from Nelson Mandela's now-iconic "Make Poverty History" speech. It's an apt start given the wholesome intentions of this EP, although it feels slightly jarring to hear one of the world's greatest speeches getting paired with the euphoric synths supplied here by the Norwegian production behemoth Stargate. The song is clearly engineered for a stadium/festival setting, so casual listening might not be the best way to approach what would otherwise be a stirring anthem.

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 30/12/2018

    » As is tradition, we're wrapping up the year with a special two-part series featuring some of the best music to have come out locally and globally over the past 12 months. Culled from our 40-plus playlists stretching back to January, these tracks represent trends, cultural highlights and states of mind that reflect the times we're all living in (and trying to make some sense of). Without further ado, we're picking up right where we left off last week with our countdown to No.1. On that note, thank you for sticking with us until the very end -- here's to the new year of fewer whales choking on plastic bags, of nobody getting trapped in a cave, and maybe -- just maybe -- of an election.
