Happy Chinese New Year

It's become something of a tradition on my blog to post pictures of celebratory decorations out and about in Bangkok. Or is it a habit?

I don't take the pictures to blog them, I take them because I so love to see the decorations that these big malls produce. (I once harboured the desire to do these kind of displays as a job.) The difference between here and the UK seems to be that here there is still a generous budget for this PR.

These two are taken inside and outside at Siam Paragon Mall.

Isn't it brilliant that so much effort and budget is put into these things? better than the tired old tat they wheel out in the UK year after year.

Love seeing these photo... keep up that habit!
