    Dodging the bullet

    Brunch, Gary Boyle, Published on 07/10/2018

    » One of the best things about travelling in Japan is the fast and convenient Shinkansen. The bullet trains can whisk you from Tokyo to Kyoto in as little as two hours and 20 minutes. Or you could, like 34-year old Gabriel Camelin, a video and photography lecturer at Silpakorn University, do the same trip on your bicycle. The route through the mountains is 570km and can be done, if you're as brave and fit as Gabriel, in just seven days.

    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.

    From Goya to El Greco

    Brunch, Chaiyot Yongcharoenchai, Published on 01/07/2018

    » Walking through the crowd after arriving at Gran Via metro station in Madrid, my hands turn cold, my lips dry and my heart rate rises to match the rhythm of the drum being beat by a street performer nearby. Here I am again, standing in the same country that I first visited only one year ago.

    Beyond the cinematic glitz

    Brunch, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/05/2018

    » In the past 10 days the seaside city of Cannes has been in the news with noisy fanfare and dazzling colour, led by pictures of bare-shouldered stars sauntering down the red carpet on a daily basis. It happens every year in May, as the world's largest cine-event, the Cannes Film Festival, attracts thousands of journalists, photographers and industry professionals to the Mediterranean resort town made out to become a self-contained universe of glamour. Throughout its 71st edition, which ended yesterday, Cannes once again commanded the attention of the world.

    Brains and beauty on display in nest

    Brunch, Published on 06/05/2018

    » In my life, I have seen many different species of bulbuls -- red-whiskered bulbul, red-vented bulbul, yellow-vented bulbul and streak-eared bulbul to name a few. All of them are beautiful birds. However, my latest encounter with the streak-eared bulbul has left me especially in awe of their intelligence, parental duties and protective nature towards their offspring.

    Brunch, Published on 08/04/2018

    » In my high school Western history class, I struggled to remember dates and details. The horrors of World War II felt far away, and removed from my young life. But when I left to visit Berlin last month, I was in for an unforgettable experience.
