    Beyond the ropes

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 19/10/2018

    » In Bangkok's Charoen Krung area, tucked within an alley lies Maison Close, a dark bar/art gallery and home to some of the more uncommon tastes in art from abstract calligraphy to ero guro. However, as you enter the venue on some nights, art isn't the only focus but a blindfolded woman hung in suspension with ropes. The ropes have been tied up by a rope artist and her model serves as a canvas for elaborate and intricate patterns. Despite looking uncomfortable, the model, dubbed a rope bunny, is in a state of stillness and relaxation, with the ropes symmetrically wrapped around the curves of her body -- something beautiful or mesmerising. This is shibari or the art of Japanese rope bondage. Enter at your own risk.

    Must love dogs

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/10/2018

    » The Bodhi Dog Rescue and Shelter in Phuket has been rescuing and treating dogs (and other animals, too) who have been mistreated, shunned and abandoned for six years. Running solely on donations, they've encountered heartbreaking circumstances, which makes us question if we really do treat dogs as "man's best friend". On the other hand, they've also had successful stories like that of a pup named Nor. On their sixth anniversary of Bodhi Dog Rescue and Shelter GURU caught up with Tina Maria, founder and owner.

    Hitting High Notes

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/10/2018

Hanita Bhambri delivered a powerful performance of Let Me Go and is this year's winner. Through Aloft's partnership with Universal Music Group, she gets a music video and a digital release of her single to kick start her career. Although Nontree "Nate" Paitoonvongvira, who represented SEA, didn't win, he wowed the audience with a catchy performance so much that we want (you) to get to know him. You may remember him performing a jazz rendition of Britney Spears' Toxic on The Voice but there's more to this singer/interior designer.
