Chinese New Year series 2

I just can't understand the rules of whether it is or it isn't okay to take pictures in shopping malls. Some have signs up and some don't.

You'd think it'd be easy then to know, no?

It's not. I was 'told off' in Emporium the other day and then despite there being lots of guards around yesterday in Siam Paragon (same owners) nobody told me off.

Anyway, yesterday afternoon I went out 'under cover' to hit some pics for the Chinese New Year series. (Of course being told not to take pictures never stops me. I'm just a stupid farang, right?) Siam Paragon was fabulous. I saw Chinese dragon dancers. Before I came to Thailand, I'd only ever seen these, year after year, on Blue Peter.


And, finally, a very happy birthday to my sister!

But I don't understand... why would you be not allowed to take photos? Am vee glad that you are a stupid farang. Though I think you are not.

I find it strange that you aren't allowed to take pictures sometimes? I'm glad you've taken them because it's all so lovely!

Fabulous photos I really must visit the country sometime as it seems to have such a diverse range of experiences. How's the writing coming on?

Undercover photographer sounds rather exciting! Great pics :o)

Great pics. I would think it should be okay to take those pics. Although to be honest I wouldn't really know, so best to ignore me.x

And check out that word count. A third done, now to get to halfway. x
