    The indie experience

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/03/2019

    » Sarinya Manamuti, Nicholas Hudso-Ellis and Wongsarond Menn Suthikulpanich, who designed the space at Sala Daeng, are the founders of Bangkok Screening Room. The contemporary cinema aims to serve as a platform for local independent filmmakers and films, as well as making non-blockbuster indie films and classics accessible. Having just concluded the Fem Film Festival, which screened movies highlighting struggles and accomplishments of women in honour of International Women's Day, Guru sat down with Sarinya and Hudso-Ellis to talk about Bangkok Screening Room.

    Lend a hand

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/03/2019

    » In a world where everything seems bleak, we try our best to find some sort of escape. Whether or not this is simply denial of reality is something we won't delve into (we're Guru, we don't do existential crises). But with the stress of the real world and our quest to discover things that would temporary alleviate what we feel, we seldom ask the question, "What can I do to make the world a little better?." It may seem cliché but there are a number of little things you can do and it's not all about volunteering in a dense forests where you have to sleep in rickety tents with no toilets (shudder) all for the sake of saving Mother Earth. There are simple things like buying something online, adopting a doggo or even go shopping that can help a cause. This week, we've got some causes that you can get behind.

    New York style goodness

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 01/03/2019

    » Authentic New York-style pizzas are in short supply here in the Big Mango. However, they're slowly but surely making their way into the market. Soho Pizza is one of the few places where you can get your NY-style pizza craving satisfied. Located on Sukhumvit 11, Soho Pizza is making the 18-inch pizza even more accessible to Bangkokians and we are eternally grateful.

    Post-apocalyptic playground

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 01/03/2019

    » The Far Cry franchise is back with another story of deranged, violent lunatics having taken over an otherwise idyllic, beautiful location where you, the hero, are stuck and must lead the locals to freedom by shooting and blowing stuff up. It's the Far Cry formula, so is it just "same old, same old"?

    No work, all play

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/02/2019

    » Pop art has started to pop (wink wink) up a lot in the Big Mango, from curious structures at well-known malls to colourful, eclectic murals on faded walls. It wasn't a surprise then when SO Sofitel Bangkok welcomed pop/street artist Jisbar to showcase his vibrant pieces until Mar 13. The Paris-based artist has showcased his talent on canvases and other items like a bike (a design in collaboration with BMW and showcased at the exhibition) and even Cardi B's handbags. He's chosen Bangkok to be his first foray into Asia so Guru sat down and talked with him about his art and what drew him to Bangkok.

    » It's almost that time of the year again when couples come out of their love nests in droves as they celebrate St Valentine's Day.

We at GURU are issuing you a challenge: do better. Well, it's not exactly a challenge since we're telling you what you can do, but if you want a different Valentine's Day experience then we've got you covered.

    The desolation of smog

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 25/01/2019

    » The first month of 2019 has been completely obscured by the hazy descent of smog upon the Big Mango and while Bangkokians are no strangers to pollution, it seems that this may be worse than before. Each morning, we wake up to a smog-infested skyline and step out into the streets breathing in fresh pollution speckled with PM2.5 dust particles, which are dangerous and fine (size-wise, not hotness-wise). Pollution Control Department director-general Pralong Damrongthai said that this may last for another month or two -- with ups and downs -- and the PCD has admitted that spraying water into the air doesn't really help (but it's so much fun so let's continue). Expect Bangkok to look post apocalyptic for a while. But fear not dear readers, we are looking out for you. We've done our research (it's never too late) and we've got a few protips on how to survive the haze.
