Bittersweet: Christmas, Bangkok Style

Christmas is just around the corner and decorations had been set up by various establishments, malls mostly, here in the City of Angels. One favorite of mine is in Central World where giant white Christmas trees were set up outside surrounded by yellow carnation like artificial flowers lit by tiny series lights. 

 

For me, it is the perfect setup and somewhat a tribute to the late King Bhumibol (coincidence or not) since the color yellow usually represents his majesty. Until now I am still amazed by the Thai people’s love for the late monarch. The place also emanates a magical glow and provide a great backdrop for portraits. Bokehlicious everyone. It is great place for hanging out with friends and family and for photo enthusiast like moi. 

Hungry? No sweat! Food and drinks are readily available. From Thai food at the far end of the grounds or some international flavors near the Christmas displays. Chang beer have a stall with a live band (great band by the way, very entertaining) and cozy bean bags for those beer lovers out there. I love to stay and enjoy the music inside the makeshift bar, problem is, I don’t have a penchant for beer. Do try Guss Damn Good artisan icecream near the Chang stall. It is worth every lick/bite. Smooth and creamy just the way I like them icecream. 

Our second two scoops in a cup.
So if you’re in town and have time to spare. You may want to visit Central World. If not for the Christmas display, the food might convince you. πŸ˜… Happy holidays. 

Cheers!
