    » My boss, an Irishman named Chris, is fond of telling me that I come from "the land of gleaming white teeth and expressing yourself". He's not far off. My father is a dentist and my sister Amanda, a cheerleader throughout high school, is now a social emotional counsellor who works with children.

    Worlds apart, together

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 16/04/2015

    » It is 10.30am on a Sunday morning, and I, along with around a dozen other reporters, am seated in a conference room on the ninth floor of a hotel in George Town, on Malaysia's Penang Island.

    Mall things considered

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 22/04/2015

    » In my high school history class, when we couldn't avoid paying attention any longer, we would half-heartedly thumb through battered textbooks with broken spines, turning pages so stained with oil from generations of hands that they had become translucent as fast-food burger wrappers.

    Bangkok Comic Con's back alley

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 07/05/2015

    » '[As Thais] we only adopt, poorly. We're not creating anything new. But such is the way of the Thai mentality. We don't lead. We follow. We want something we're used to. We like imitations. As content consumers, we like junk food."

    » You'll have to be spry if you intend to chow down at the Angel Wings food truck — besides a weekly appearance at Wishbeer every Wednesday, it currently has no fixed location.

    He ain't heavy (he's only 11)

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 25/06/2015

    » Live abroad for long enough and you start to lose touch. The things you took for granted back home - your friends, your family, your Shih Tzu - start to become relics of a faded reality. You are absent for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmases. Your loved ones wrinkle and shrink as they are dragged behind time's insectile scuttle.

    » Tucked in at the end of the up-and-coming Sathon Soi 10 is the two-month-old Marcel, a casual, two-storey French bar and bistro offering tapas, beautiful main courses and a helluva cocktail list. It's owned by two French guys (Louis and Ugo) and a Thai woman (Pom).

    » There's one thing for certain about EmQuartier — at some point during your luxury shopping trip you're going to suffer from acute exhaustion. So why not take a break from spending daddy's money on Gucci and Dior, and instead use that unearned cash to refuel on something a lot less expensive — and a lot more delicious? We're talking brownies, baby.

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 24/07/2015

    » The Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa is not a new face in the hospitality game — its 26 rooms, nestled on a private beach (which is cleaned three times a day) in Pran Buri, about 30km outside of Hua Hin, have for 14 years been a mainstay for those seeking semi-reclusive getaways.
