The Japanese owner of Sonie's restaurant in Bangkok, Hirokazu Koyama, seen here at his restaurant on Sukhumvit Road.  Mr Hirokazu lived in the United States where he developed his fusion of Japanese and European cuisine. 

A good example of his fusion creations is an appetizer consisting of pieces of raw tuna combined with capers, mustard and Japanese chili powder served on garlic bread. Highly recommended.The Japanese owner of Sonie's restaurant in Bangkok, Hirokazu Koyama, seen here at his restaurant on Sukhumvit Road.

Catch a wave and you're flying on top of the world. A surfer pulls off a stunt while on a boat-charter surf holiday in one of the world's most recently discovered surf heavens, the Mentawai Islands of Indonesia. Despite spending two weeks in some of the prettiest tropical islands in Indonesia, apart from riding the waves these holiday-makers pretty much stay on their boat for fear of contracting malaria, dengue fever, TB and a host of other infectious diseases. "If you are a surfer, this is quite simply paradise." said an American surfer named Owen who says he has surfed all over the world. "In Malibu there are thousands of surfers in the water, four of five people on every wave. In the Mentawais, it's yours all yours. It's your ten days of fame and if you go back with all your boards intact you did not have a good time!"Catch a wave and you're flying on top of the world.
