    Spooktacular

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 26/10/2018

    » Halloween isn't a big deal in Thailand. Unlike in the US, we have the good sense of not encouraging our kids to knock on strangers' doors for candy. The downside, of course, is not having any kids to leech candy off of. Despite that, we thought this time of spookiness would be a great opportunity to hear from you, our dear readers, about your frightening (or seemingly frightening) experiences and as always, you didn't disappoint. Here are 13 -- an apt number for this story -- chilling stories from you to get into the Halloween spirit.

    The dessert queen

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 26/10/2018

    » Pastry chef Arisara "Papier" Chongphanitkul was crowned Bangkok's Best Pastry Chef 2018 by BK Top Tables earlier this year and it is not an accolade that is easy to come by. Known for modernising Thai desserts, chef Papier trained at the Gastronomicom pastry school in France. Her desserts are often inspired by her working stints alongside pastry greats such as Sadaharu Aoki and Hugues Pouget in Paris, as well as Laurent Gerbaud in Brussels, but always with a Thai twist. In January this year, Chef Papier became the first Thai woman to compete in the international Ladies World Pastry Championship in Rimini, Italy. As group pastry chef for the Issaya group, she lends her creations to Saawaan, Issaya La Patisserie (for which she launched a cookbook last year), Issaya Siamese Club, Baan Phadthai and Le Cochon Blanc. And, for the jet setters, chef Papier also caters the desserts on Thai Smiles. Embarking on a new path in her culinary journey, chef Papier will soon launch her own patisserie, "Ici", where her love for everything praline and other sweets will shine through.

    Unpretentious Asian American

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 26/10/2018

    » "Our food reimagines Asian flavours with an American touch", is how Bunker describes itself. Having had a solid fan following (I don't say this lightly. My friend's IG is filled with food porn from Bunker every other week) since it opened in 2016, the restaurant's name and structure is a reference to a military shelter.

    Luxe and lush

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 19/10/2018

    » Some resorts can be a destination in themselves. Especially one with plenty of activities and things to do on site. After 20 minutes in a posh Volvo SUV from Phuket International Airport and a few winding roads, you'll arrive at the lush surroundings of Trisara Phuket -- "the garden in the third heaven", in Sanskrit -- where villas and suites are nestled on a gentle hill slope.

    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.

Tucked at the back of Central Chidlom's Food Hall with a small outdoor terrace, the eatery specialises in southern American and classic American diner fare. Chef and patron Brian Hill is a pastry chef at heart but since he grew up in the US, decided to incorporate his favourite food into a menu that will have you salivating in no time.
