That scary time of the year is growing closer.
This neighboring roof has been used as a theater and/or a movie site several times during the past few years. Commercials have been shot there. Crime scenes for TV soap operas also like the spot. Even football matches have been played there.
Reader Anna Vassilieva writing from the Leningradskaya research station in Antarctica (69 30 S, 159 23 E) writes: "Do you have any more photos of your Bangkok neighbor's roof theater? Preferably with other players."
Yes, Anna. I am glad you enjoyed the last batch.
Siam Paragon's Gourmet Market even tops London's Harrods. We'll tour it for three days.
Avid reader Kim Jong Un from Pyongyang in the Democratic Republic of Korea (North Korea) writes: "I miss my student days in Switzerland when I had a different kind of cheese at every meal. As a fan of your blog I was uplifted when you showed us photos of the Gourmet Market at Siam Paragon. Please post some cheese photos. I miss Switzerland so much ... especially the cheese."
OK Kim! Also, here some other hard to find foods in North Korea.
THOCBDC interrupts its in-depth coverage of the goodies found in Siam Paragon's Gourmet Market to bring you this special plea from The Vatican.
Cardinal Marc Ouellet P.P.S. writes from the Apostolic Palace: "Does the Gourmet Market offer a flavorful bread product that could be converted into Holy Eucharists? The Congregation for Bishops has concluded that church attendance is down largely because of the 'blandness of the current crop of holy crackers' ... and therefore the Church should seek something more tasty. Th Church turns to THOCBDC for guidance."
Marc, try the bread at L'Espace.
The last photos of THOCBDC's tour of Siam Paragon's Gourmet Market.
Our next series will be a tour of Bangkok's finest brothels. Perhaps the good Cardinal who was so interested in finding a tastier Eucharist will then want THOCBDC's help in finding a tastier Mary.
After seeing all that gourmet food at Siam Pagagon (L'Espace and the Gourmet Market) I bet you are ready for some down to earth soi food.
Reader Peter Catchpole from Blue World Diving in Dorset (UK) wants to see the stalls which generate my soi food.
Peter, I promise on my next walk down that soi I'll have my camera ready. In the mean time ... how about some photos of a pretty Thai foot massage girl?
