    Borneo to be wild

    Brunch, Published on 23/09/2018

    » Landing in Kota Kinabalu, we weren't sure what to expect. The name, to most globetrotters, conjures up the sky-piercing Gurung Kinabalu -- a mountain whose conquerable peak of 4,095m entices both novice and serious mountaineers from all over the world. But we weren't here for that. We were here for everything else (that the Malaysian Tourism Board could stuff) in between.

    » The new 4th generation Apple Watch doesn't just want you to know the time, it also wants to save your life. On top of a 30% larger screen, a more thin and sleek design and a two-times-faster processor, the new Apple Watch has improved its heart monitoring capabilities and even includes a one-touch ECG application that will be available later this year. Another potential life-saving feature is the watches' new detection feature that will alert emergency services if you fall and remain still for a certain amount of time. These watches are available for pre-order now and will go on sale this Friday.

    Get Bizzy

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 23/09/2018

    » In case you're unaware, the hip-hop scene in Thailand is blowing up right now. Underground talents are getting unprecedented exposure on mainstream TV reality shows The Rapper and Show Me The Money. All of this crazy hype can (and should) be credited to the Bangkok-based online community Rap Is Now, which has played an integral part in the re-emergence of the local hip-hop scene. Their infamous "battles", now in their fourth season, have bestowed upon us talents like UrboyTJ, Youngohm and Twopee Southside -- all of whom are currently basking in the glow of mainstream success.

    Greyscale greatness

    Brunch, Published on 09/09/2018

    » They look like pictures that could have been taken on Mars, if not heavily Photoshopped, but Tom Jacobi emphasises again and again that all his photos are of real and uncontrived structures on Earth. Ranging from deserts with pockets of water to dramatic mountain ranges, his photographs capture a world you've likely never seen before -- largely in grey tones because he has gotten up at 4am to get these shots.

    A Return To Form

    Brunch, Published on 09/09/2018

    » There is an oft-recounted anecdote that tells the story of how B5 came to be B5. Basically, each of the group's members -- Suwira "Q" Boonrod, Mariam Grey, Saksit "Tor" Vejsupaporn, Chalatit "Ben" Tantiwut and Uthai "Cake" Poonyamund -- was slated to pursue a solo career as part of Bakery Music's new crop of artists. But that was before they shared the stage for Boyd Kosiyabong's Million Ways To Love: Part I concert, subsequently leading fans to believe that they were an actual, single-unit group. The label, apparently subscribing to the "there's no such thing as bad publicity" ethos, decided to market them as a quintet called B5. And what a decision that was, for their 2004 debut Event became a huge success, giving Bakery Music, whose popularity had been waning during the country's 1997 economic crisis, a much-needed boost.
