    Snitching on schnitzel's

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 02/12/2016

    » <b>The setting:</b> Alright, alright, we know what you were thinking when you saw the name. But no, this most definitely is not a German restaurant. And yes, although they do serve up pork schnitzel and sauerkraut, other delicacies like pork knuckle and stollen cakes are not on the menu. Located at the quiet end of Soi 38, this dainty and unassuming restaurant could have been mistaken for a small coffee shop. Step inside and the rustic décor -- with bare brick walls, a vintage collection of bric-a-bracs and collectibles from the owner's previous residence in the USA make up a warm, casual and inviting diner perfect for those days when you have a hankering for American-style comfort food.

    Absolutely fabulous

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 02/12/2016

    » Having professional health and beauty experts on call to come into my home had always been something I'd dreamed of having, but I was always too lazy (and quite frankly, not clever enough) to build an app for it. I had it drilled into my brain that such luxuries were only reserved for Kardashian-calibre celebrities. But with FABbrigade, a Bangkok-based app that answers every woman's (and man's) pampering needs, I've been proved wrong. If you've got a smart phone, you need this in your life, ASAP. Save your credit deets on there and the beauty world becomes your pearl-filled oyster. If you've got enough cash, that is.
