What's trending and happening this week

1. Until March 31, Paul Smith -- the British fashion brand that coined the phrase "classic with a twist" -- will host a pop-up installation featuring home products from Italian brand Toiletpaper, a collection of classic-looking porcelain cups, bowls and plates that sport a variety of strange, printed patters, such as a horse, a plumber or a set of palm-less fingers (don't ask us why). The installations can be found at the Paul Smith official stores at EmQuartier and Siam Paragon.

2. Hunts & Suntasio, the famous magician duo, welcomes you to an evening of fantasy and music at the Imagica Fascinate, a "musical magic play" that combines magic and music to create an unforgettable performance. They will be performing at the Thonglor Art Space this weekend, with two performances (3pm and 7pm) daily. Tickets cost 350 baht, while children below the age of 12 can enjoy a discounted price of 200 baht. Get your tickets by messaging, or call 086-336-0183 or 086-414-8480.

3. In collaboration with fashion magazines Cheeze and Looker, Siam Square recently announced their #iamsiamish campaign, a casting call for young men and women who have an interest in professional modelling. With a "casting room" erected in Siam Center, the campaign aims to recruit 100 new-generation models to join their "#iamsiamish Fashion Show [S/S Collection 2017]", which will take place later this year. The campaign will only be accepting applications until March 15, so don't pass up this opportunity to make your mark on the catwalk!

4. Everyone loves Nutella, and everyone loves doughnuts. In a match made in heaven, Krispy Kreme is offering two new Nutella-slathered doughnuts, the Nutty Cocoa and Chocolate Hazelnut Kreme, for 35 baht a piece, or 296 baht for six. All good things must eventually come to an end, so be sure to enjoy these Nutella delights before they are taken off the shelves on April 15.

5. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the "Tom Yum Goong" financial crisis, which devastated the Thai economy on a scale never seen before or since, with repercussions still being felt today. To educate the public about mistakes leading up to the crisis -- as well lessons we can draw from them -- Museum Siam will host the Tom Yum Goong Studies: Lessons (un)Learned exhibition. Free entry.
