2The Liv­ing Room at the Sher­a­ton Grande Sukhumvit and the Ital­ian em­bassy in Bangkok will be bring­ing in two ex­cep­tional jazz bands from Italy to play for two nights this month. On Sept 15, Ape­iron Sax Quar­tet will fill the venue with Baroque to con­tem­po­rary jazz pieces, film sound­tracks and South Amer­i­can-in­flu­enced num­bers. On Sept 29, the Luca Ciarla Quar­tet will take over the venue. Led by Luca Ciarla, a lead­ing vi­o­lin­ist in the in­ter­na­tional jazz cir­cuit, the quar­tet will play their unique con­tem­po­rary jazz pieces and sounds in the Ital­ian folk tra­di­tion. The shows start at 8.30pm with an en­ter­tain­ment fee of 300 baht per per­son. Guests who spend more than 1,000 baht will have their fee waived.

3Premium Amer­i­can ice-cream brand Häa­gen-Dazs has in­tro­duced adorable mini ver­sions of their fa­mous Stick­bar Pop­si­cles. Per­fect for small sugar crav­ings, the new mini stick­bars come in four flavours — Vanilla Caramel Al­mond, Choco­late Choc Al­mond, Green Tea & Al­mond, and the most re­fresh­ing one of all, Mango & Rasp­berry. Us­ing the best in­gre­di­ents for each flavour, the seam­less choco­late coat­ing on each Stick­bar is made from Bel­gian milk choco­late, the green tea hails from Kagoshima Pre­fec­ture in Ja­pan and the fra­grant vanilla comes from Mada­gas­car. A sin­gle Mini Stick­bar costs 50 baht and a Mul­ti­pack of five costs 299 baht.

4Those still on the fence on buy­ing Ne­spresso’s quick and con­ve­nient coffee ma­chines don’t need to think much fur­ther.

Com­ing in two shapes and four colour choices, the ma­chines weigh 2.3kg, are priced at 5,500 baht and have two modes — Espresso and Lungo. The C-Range, a sim­ple rec­tan­gu­lar ma­chine, comes in Pi­ano Black or Pure white, and the D-Range, de­signed in a fun tri­an­gu­lar shape, comes in Ruby Red or Lime Green. The Ne­spresso Essenza Mini ma­chine is avail­able on­line or at Siam Paragon’s Ne­spresso bou­tique.
