    Oh, you'll scream for it, all right

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 09/10/2015

    » Boca Scoop was a surprise -- and perhaps a curse -- appearing about two months ago, seemingly overnight, just across the street from this Guru writer's gym. Since its opening, he has been going at least thrice weekly to gorge on its house-made ice cream, which is easily among the best in Bangkok. Indeed, Boca Scoop is an oddity, located in the far reaches of Udom Suk, between sois 51 and 53, in an open-fronted shophouse with corrugated tin walls painted in bright, block colours. Nevertheless, it is a welcome addition to a neighbourhood that is on the verge of "up and coming".

    Indique's ingenious comfort 

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 18/09/2015

    » Indique is located on the second floor of the Park 22 building, on Sukhumvit Soi 22. The interior is decorated in gaudy yet attractive golds, purples and dark browns, colours befitting Indian cuisine's country of origin. There is also a large balcony, perfect for smoking shisha or relaxing with a few drinks. Like the menu, the restaurant's decor is a seamless blend of the modern and traditional. Indique has been in operation for approximately eight months, but is still a relative secret in Bangkok. But like all juicy secrets, it will in all probability soon be outed.

    The fads of tomorrow

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 25/09/2015

    » Alas, Bike for Mom has passed us by. But does that mean Bangkok's cycling craze is over? Heavens and mercy, no! Cycling, somehow, has wriggled into a place of semi-permanence in the heart of urban Thailand. Despite Bangkok being the world's most ill-suited place for cycling (besides the bombed-out husk of Aleppo and the lost city of Atlantis), it is nonetheless rolling on two-wheels toward eco-friendly glory, aided by unrelenting media coverage and a crazed public support that is both impressive and frightening.

    » It is Monday, early afternoon, I am slightly more hung-over than I care to admit, and large, plastic models of a blue Japanese cat have me surrounded. The cat, whose name is Doraemon, is a robot from the future. I think.

    This is no time for nationalism

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 28/08/2015

    » Tragedy is a strange, contradictory thing. It breaks and it binds. It destroys and it builds. It opens and it closes. When an earthquake, or a storm, or a man's gun, or a bomb takes human lives, there is first anger, sadness, confusion. There is fear. There is grief. There is great pain. But this is followed by a period of mourning, and then of consolation, of comfort, of determination and of strength.

    Cheesed to eat you

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 14/08/2015

    » Holy Cheese is a temple, a spiritual place where the devout may gather and sit and eat under the watchful eye of Cheesus Christ, the heavenly saviour of dairy products himself.
