5pm: Coffee Time
As it’s Sunday, you probably don’t want to rush things too much. Start your day out around 5pm with a good book and an even better cup of coffee. Visit (Un) Fashion Cafe, located right at the front of Ekamai Shopping Mall (02-726-9592. Open Tue-Sun noon-8:30pm). With its bare red bricks, vintage wares and asymmetrical structure, this cafe is pure Instagram material. Thankfully you can also get a good snack like the honey waffle with fresh fruit (B185) to go with your macha latte (B180). For another coffee choice, head up to the second floor of Ekamai Mall for Petite Cafe (2/F, 089-55-1244. Open Tue-Sun 11am-10pm), a tiny counter hidden at the back of the Liberty Area One (02-381-5922. Open Tue-Sun 10am-10pm) fashion boutique which uses beans from Ceresia Roasters.
Photo tips: Don’t fret about low light. The Samsung Galaxy S6’s rear camera has an f/1.9 aperture which allows you to get a bright and clear picture even in the low light. If you want to capture the whole scene, a top-view table shot is a must.
6pm: Shopping Time
After an hour or two sipping and reading, you can swing by the (Un) Fashion cafe’s vintage shop located right next door for a nice bag or a pair of leather shoes. (Un) Fashion Vintage Shop (02-726-9592. Open daily noon-9pm) offers a lot of items imported from Italy, some which date back to the 1970s or even before. The best thing is, the prices won’t give you a heart attack, with items ranging from B380-5,000. For more shopping, check out the new record store, The Reco Room (085-322-5403), located just a few steps away. The focus here is on funk and jazz vinyl including plenty of Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye and Gil Scott-Heron plus reissues of alternative Thai acts like Silly Fools and the brand new Cindy Sui album.
Photo tips: The Samsung Galaxy S6's ‘Selective Focus’ function allows you to focus on your chosen item and blur out the background, just like a DSLR.
8pm: Dinner Time
Bangkok foodies can’t get enough of gourmet burgers, and Burger Factory (02-714-4249. Open Sun-Thu 11:30am-11pm; Fri-Sat 11:30am-midnight) was one of the first proper joints on the scene. Try the signature bacon and cheese Factory Burger (made with Australian beef, B300) along with some greens like smoked salmon salad (B250). Looking for a healthier option? Head over to Ebisu Sushi (087-719-1888. Open daily 5pm-11pm; Sat-Sun noon-3pm), which serves fish fresh from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market and beef from Hokkaido and Kagoshima. It also launched a new menu earlier this month.
Photo tips: It’s not always true that you need natural light to get a nice food shot. Samsung Galaxy S6’s ‘Professional Camera’ mode lets you adjust the temperature, white balance and more on-screen before you snap your shot.
10pm: Drinking Time
OK, you want a drink after your meal but can’t go too hard as it’s Sunday night after all. Hop to Castle Bar (Open Tue-Sun 11am midnight) for a pint of Carlsberg, Paulaner Hefe-Weizen, Guinness or Kilkenny (B175-240). Or head straight for the fridge to check out new craft bottles from Rogue, Brew Dog and, the latest, Japanese Baird Beer. While you can be assured of the weekend’s EPL matches playing on the big screen, you might prefer some music. If retro jazz, old-school r 'n b and funk is your thing, drop by the classic Happy Monday (02-714-3953. Open Mon-Sat 7pm-midnight) for a bottle of Singha. Or if you’d prefer Thai-international hits head up to the rooftop floor for Baan Puen (061-824-1747. Open daily 6pm-2am) where the owner often has his artist friends from Tigger Twins performing on stage.
Photos tips: If you want to capture the cozy atmosphere inside the bar to make your friends jealous, the Samsung Galaxy S6’s Real Time HDR compliments the f/1.9 focus to ensure even better scenes in low light.
