All the Trappings of Success | January-March 2013

Dining the Blues Away KOPI LUWAK BEHIND THE AROMA | UNPAVED PARADISE SINGAPORE’S BABYLON ODE TO JOYO HEAVEN ON EARTH | BY DESIGN KOREA’S HYUN-MOOK KANG RUNNING FOWL A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHICKEN FIRST CLASS NEVER TURN RIGHT | BATTLE ROYALE VILLAS VS HOTELS


From the Editor | A welcome. Welcome to Qudos, the magazine that celebrates the rewards of a life well lived by offering up new ideas and inspiring, insightful commentary on the latest and greatest going on around us. In this edition we get up close and personal with some young designers turning heads in Asia, and we feel the need for speed with the new Gullwing Mercedes and the Gulfstream G650. We head to the farmyard as we champion the humble chicken’s place in our culinary history, and we take issue with the highly coveted Kopi Luwak and get to the bottom of a trade that isn’t quite as ethical or justifiably priced as it claims. We delve into the trapped urbanite’s fascination with parks, gardens and plant-filled pleasure domes and bring you a gratuitous first-hand over-the-top experience of a private island holiday off the

p46

coast of Singapore, just to get you salivating and maybe get the taste of over-hyped coffee out of your mouth. It is also our pleasure to present a 37-page portfolio of the most desirable luxury villas and homes in the best tropical island and urban destinations of Southeast Asia, where the rich, the famous, and the aspiring choose to dwell

and live fabulous lives. - Editor

Global Cooling It’s an equatorial first this February as Singapore transforms Marina Bay into the world’s largest ice-skating rink, with engineers constructing a massive, 40-hectare, transparent insulated dome and installing twenty-seven thousand solar panels to provide the gargantuan amounts of power necessary to keep the ice from melting. Why have they done it? Because they can! So leave your Greenpeace badge at home and get your skates on. Feb 1 thru 28.

Digestion

Words: Michael Travers

By reinterpreting the recipes of countless generations, Thai food goes avant garde in the Bangkok backstreets.

28 | QUDOS


few years ago when Dylan Jones left his native Australia to take his cheffing skills to the greener pastures of London, he found himself working in a Thai restaurant, where he developed a passion for more than just the food. “I was working in a very respectable Thai restaurant for five years, where I fell in love with the cuisine, the country and one of its people,” he says referring to Bo Songvisava, his Bo.lan business partner and the love of his life. When their time in London was up they decided to move back to Thailand and give Thai fine-dining a shot.

The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT boasts enhanced driving dynamics and even better race track performance. With a maximum output of 435 kW (591 hp), the optimised AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission and the new AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT - which is available both as a Coupé and a Roadster - has raised the bar even higher. As a further highlight, the new high-quality AMG designo Exclusive STYLE leather is now also available as an optional extra for all SLS AMG models. According to Tobias Moers, Board Member and Head of Overall Vehicle Development for Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “The new SLS AMG GT demonstrates the sort of potential which lies in AMG’s super sports cars. With its even higher levels of performance, the SLS AMG GT excites out on the race track in particular by providing an emotionally enjoyable and passionate driving experience.” Masculine and decidedly athletic:

The AMG logo on the right of the boot lid also features the additional letters “GT”. One look at the technical specifications highlights the fact that AMG has succeeded in enhancing the dynamic profile of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT even further. The maximum output of the AMG 6.3-litre V8 front mid-engine is 435 kW (591 hp) at 6800 rpm, while the maximum torque is 650 Nm at 4750 rpm. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and can reach a speed of 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. Mercedes-AMG has achieved the output of 435 kW (591 hp) through in-engine dethrottling measures in

thanks to newly developed gear change functions and optimised transmission control, it has been possible to shorten reaction time significantly. When changing gears manually via the real metal shift paddles on the AMG Performance steering wheel, control commands right through to the noticeable gear change are executed markedly quicker than previously - all of which is ideal when striving to achieve some ambitious lap times on a closed-off race circuit. The reaction time experienced by the driver is made even more emotional as a result of more distinct gear changes. The automatic double-declutching function when shifting down is also more pronounced in the MercedesBenz SLS AMG GT. Due to an increase in engine torque in manual mode, the shift procedure is even quicker than previously - and is accompanied by some passionate acoustic feedback for the driver. Overall, the optimisation of the dual clutch transmission complements the sporty nature of the SLS AMG GT perfectly. New AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension. But it is not just the AMG 6.3-litre V8 front mid-engine and the optimised dual clutch transmission which are responsible for increasing the driving dynamics of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT. The newly developed AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension also enhances the vehicle’s sportiness. In the case of the SLS AMG GT, MercedesAMG has combined the sophisticated suspension layout. Q

when travelling alone. But it is only a select few who get to go behind the red velvet curtain and truly experience the exquisiteness of travelling first class, a world beyond luxury that we mere mortals can only dream or read about. Back in the days when even economy air travel was considered exclusive, first class used to be an essential element for any airline’s portfolio. But as times have changed and travel has become the domain of the everyman, many airlines have dropped the service. But not all. Around 35 of the world’s best airlines have not only kept it alive, but have embraced it and are going all out to create an exclusive flying experience like no other - for guests with the means to pay for it, of course. For those who are willing to shell out 10 times the price of a cattle class ticket there are many wonders that await; personal limousine pickups, concierge check in and fast track

A Thousand Words

Christopher Leggett FACE Apart from where we may come from a face can say so much about a person's life. From the creases and folds and blemishes we may ask if they have had a life of toil or a life of ease, a life of smiles and laughter or a life of endurance and hardship, or perhaps even a healthy mix of both. Who knows, for it is the photographer's job to only capture a moment in time. It is up to us, the viewer, to make up our own minds.
