    Everything's coming up Rosewood

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Rosewood is not a name that rings any personal bells, but I first unknowingly came across it while on a night out in Beijing. The so-far-lousy night took a turn when the social editor of a high-society magazine ushered me to get off my stool at the dingy bar we were in. We were first-timers in Beijing and unlike the Western press in the group, she was in no mood for pole dancers and Mandarin rock covers. She was the most well-informed and refined tippler of the Thai group, so we trustingly followed her taste to Rosewood Beijing, knowing whatever it was, it wasn't going to be the Chinese version of Patpong. It was the right decision, the one we should have gone with three hours earlier. What greeted us upon arrival were stunning high ceilings, stylish understatement and immense relief that there are chic and modern places to head to in the post-Mao capital.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Remember when bubble tea was all the rage in Bangkok? There's another ongoing trend hidden in tea shops' menus that you may not be aware of, namely, cheese tea. Accordingly to a 2017 article by Condé Nast Traveler, cheese tea started from street stalls in Taiwan and later become so popular in China that people queued up for hours to sip it. And it has been a thing in Bangkok for some time now -- since around late last year, to my best knowledge -- and Ditto Modern Tea on the second floor of CentralWorld is one of such shops that offers this curious concoction, and more.

    Oriental simplicity

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 29/06/2018

    » On the 27th floor of 137 Pillars, Nimitr Restaurant is adorned beautifully in a regal dark blue that makes the entire place shine and shimmer. Add the high ceiling with modern lights and a fantastic view and you've got yourself a pretty snazzy and hip dining venue for lunch or dinner. Fancy dining in the open air? You can head out to the balcony where they've also got a bar. At first glance, you may think the place is a little swanky and that you're entering a high-class dining restaurant. Despite the feeling of sophistication the place brings up, Nimitr is not a hi-so dining establishment and actually wants you to sit back, relax and enjoy your meal. Besides, who would complain about having such a pretty place to dine in? It just means a lot of IG-worthy opportunities.
