    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » I admit my usual pre-movie viewing ritual is buying snacks and a drink from the outside and smuggling them into the theatre. But when you're actually excited about a particular blockbuster (and/or a date you're going to see it with), you may want to turn it into a memorable occasion.

    Holey goes cold and creamy

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » With cheesecakes and froyo on the rise in this city, there hasn't been much movement in ice cream and even less so artisanal gelato. So when I heard that Holey Artisan Bakery, which I had previously dubbed the best bakery in Bangkok, was opening an artisan gelato store, I immediately ditched my routine appointments with Llao Llao and Pablo to go try it out.

    Gym hacks

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » Sorry (not sorry) fans of loud and colourful activewear, but trendy athletic wear is going back to the basics of moody tones, sharing aesthetics with practical fashion. To be honest, this has been a long time coming as mass fashion and design have been increasingly keen on cutting down frills. I mean just look at the iPhone 7.
