    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 23/12/2018

    » 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). We present to you this week the bottom half of our annual round-up, a vibrant batch consisting of pop mainstays like Mariah Carey and exciting newcomers like Hana Vu and Now, Now. And with that said, here's to a new year of fewer whales choking on plastic bags, of nobody getting trapped in a cave, and maybe -- just maybe -- of an election.

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 23/12/2018

    » Let's have a look at some regional food that is representative of different regions. Nasi dagang is a speciality in the three southernmost provinces of Pattani, Narathiwat and Yala. It consists of rice cooked in coconut milk, with salt, sugar, cumin, fenugreek, ginger and shallots. This type of rice is suitable for fish curry and chicken curry. In the past, it was typically reserved for important occasions, but now it's considered part of the regular cuisine.

    The light between oceans

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 16/12/2018

    » From its origins as the solo project of guitarist Noppanan Panicharoen in 2006, Inspirative has steadily evolved into one of Thailand's most consistent post-rock bands. The line-up now boasts four additional members: bassist Amornthep Masawang, guitarist Pongpat Phaukwattana, drummer Sirichai Chanmanklakul and pianist/vocalist Wuttipong Huangpetch. The quintet established themselves on the Bangkok indie circuit through gigs at legendary indie nights like Dudesweet and Mind The Gap. This, naturally, led to the release of Floating Down Through The Clouds, their debut three-track EP whose title was inspired by the lyrics to Pink Floyd's 1983 prog-rock ballad, The Gunners Dream. This was followed by the equally stellar releases Mysteriously Awake and Memories Come Rushing Up To Meet Me Now.

    Reading the leaves

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 09/12/2018

    » For desserts and other food to taste great, it's not only about the flavour. The smell is another important factor in making food all the more tasty. A lot of Thai food relies on smell, which mostly comes from leaves. Try imagining Thai food without kaffir lime leaves, basil, tamarind leaves or cha-om leaves. Now what would everything taste like?
