What color would Bangkok be if she, yes ‘she,’ is a color? Would she be a ray of rainbow or just one spicy color? First of all, let me clarify why I am so sure that my beloved city is a lady. Bangkok, in my opinion, is equivalent to a woman during her period. She is very humid & hot, hence the weather. She is very irrational, hence the traffic. She is emotional with a big appetite, hence the street food. Though despite all that, she is interesting and fun once you get to know her. If THAT doesn’t sound like ‘us girl’ during that time of the month I don’t know what does. And if I have to choose the color to represent this town, I think I would choose the red hot spicy color.
Before you come to visit ‘her’ for the first time, I hope you erase all your expectations and just go with it, then each day you spend in Bangkok will be both exciting and adventurous. The past week, in particular, was Chinese New Year. And it just happens that we have a huge chinatown smacked in the middle of it, so the fun-fun-fun in Bangkok during CNY had increased tenfold. It was s huge block party in chinatown with all the food, knick-knack and beyond. Oh my goodness, I wish you were here to see/eat all the food. Some of them were hard to find, and because of that, I think my tummy almost exploded that day from eating the obscene amount of food. Looking around, I saw all kinds of ornaments decorating the street. I saw all kinds of people. I saw all kinds of actions. Most vendors actually cooked the food on the street. Some made fresh noodle right in front of my eyes. Some let me taste freshly-made ‘whatever’ happening at that booth. It was the party of the year.
Though I have prepared posts before I left San Francisco to be posted during my stay in Bangkok, I thought it would be fun to show you how we par-tey in BKK during CNY. I hope you enjoy all these photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them.
