Lookeast Magazine: Southern Thai Food

I love the spicy! So imagine my amazement when I visited Southern Thailand and found that some of their dishes matched my mother’s in spiciness. It made me think of home. However, the deep South of Thailand is sadly an area that many are too afraid to actually visit. Places like Pattani and Songkhla are plagued with political turmoil and factionalism, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the experience of such a rich and exciting cuisine… For the full copy of the magazine, follow the link to the Lookeast’s website.

Lookeast Magazine: 40th Edition

I’m a maudlin creature. With every new collaboration, published photograph, or work, it strengthens my resolve. If I’m being honest, there are some days when I wake up and want to pack it all in. But something about seeing your name in print, makes it all worth it. Lookeast is a goliath when it comes to affairs, lifestyle and coverage of the region, so imagine how awestruck I felt, when they asked me to join their team of writers. Here’s their very first edition for 2016, which is also coincidentally their 40th edition. It’s been so much fun, and I can’t wait to do more…   For the full copy of the magazine, follow the link to the Lookeast’s website.

Bangkok Post: Anantara’s Biscotti

Bangkok Post: Royal Orchid Sheraton

In need of some true Christmas spirit, Zipporah Gene heads to the Royal Orchid Sheraton, for a taste of their Christmas cheer.  All the glitzy and the glamourous aside, Christmas, for me, really boils down to a good meal, in a great area, surrounded by fantastic people. Seeing as how this is my first Christmas in Bangkok, I was finding it a bit difficult to reconcile 30++ degree heat with all the bells and whistles that you expect from Santa. So imagine my surprise when I visited the lovely ladies and darling Chef who work at Royal Orchid Sheraton. Not only did they have such a beautiful spread, they made me feel at home. It’s not often that I leave a review feeling like I’ve made friends, but I definitely had this with these. It feels like a real family affair and that’s why I’d definitely recommend this place for a lost lamb, like me. For the full article, follow the link to the Bangkok Post’s website.

Bangkok Post: A Winter Extravaganza

I came, I saw… I ate my entire body weight in lamb. All my friends are sick to death of hearing it, but I’m awfully proud of my first ever front pager. To me, this will always be a reminder that I can do what I love, enjoy it immensely and get recognition for it. Writing is something that I feel to my core, whether it’s talking about food, travel, life or the nitty gritty of politics and identity; when I write, I am more. I got lucky and was allowed, by the lovely guys over at the Bangkok Post, to try out some of the best events that the festive season had to offer. My first assignment was the Glasshouse at Sindhorn.
