In Japanese tradition, the finest is always the simplest. Nothing loud, nothing fancy, no so-called frills. You are not to focus on the orbit, not on the distracting lines, but only on the pivot, the essence of the whole show. And that applies to this one delicious eating experience of mine at Ginza Tenharu at Gaysorn Village in Bangkok, eating a tempura omakase dinner, where the freshly-made tempura – and nothing else – is only the...

I am writing this post with a leftover sensation of super-satisfaction. I just had one of the best fishball noodles in my life. The place is not social-media-hyped, but one of the oldest, and still elusive from the light. But then they have the best combination of a real superlative fishball noodle I know.
With the long-awaited, much-anticipated additional stretch of MRT underground system between Bangkok's Central Business District and Bangkok Old Town (Rattanakosin Island) finally opened, Bangkok has become so much easier to navigate and explore. Here is an essential, from-the-local guide to help you get the most out of your visit and navigate Bangkok. Enjoy!!
You can definitely learn about one's tradition and culture through food. Case in point is the centuries-old Japanese haute cuisine of Kaiseki Ryori - the elaborate multi-course meal that reflects the Japanese super precise and neat, albeit subtly flavoured, cooking methodology. Yamazato at The Okura Prestige Bangkok is one of a handful (if not the only) Japanese restaurants in Bangkok that serve traditional Kaiseki Ryori in both lunch and...
This is an eating guide to Bangkok Old Town or Rattanakosin Island. This area contains Bangkok’s ultimate gems, which make them mandatory sites for anyone visiting town.

Thank you @yuwachana of...
One of Bangkok's premium, five-star hotels, The Okura Prestige Bangkok's neat and meticulous features reflect the strong traits of 'Omotenashi' or the Japanese hospitality with extra care in all details. We stayed in their Deluxe Corner room and tried their unique and very delicious Japanese breakfast. :D
Recently, I found myself going back to Bangkok Old Town, or the Rattanakosin Island, a lot. I think this is because I have come full circle, and my accumulative readings brought new lights to things I grew up with. So, here I am, trying to get things nice and easy for fellow travellers who are visiting Bangkok, Thailand. Hope you have fun and get the most out of your days here in town. :D
Nai Lert Park Heritage Home was built in 1915 as an out-of-town retreat for Nai Lert Sresthaputra or Phraya Bhakdinorasresth and his family. A lot of stories can be learnt from this house. After all, Nai Lert was bestowed the royal title of Phraya Bhakdinorasresth by King Rama VI for his and his wife's generosity and public services. The title means the 'Beloved Millionaire.'
I'd say curiosity moves the world. It makes everything more interesting, fun, and worth exploring. I grew up eating all kinds of noodle, Hakka noodle or ก๋วยเตี๋ยวแคะ included. But then, what exactly is Hakka Noodle? The triangle tofu? The broth? Or the person who prepares it?
