Tet celebrations in Chinatown

Went to various malls around Bangkok mainly just looking for Bangkok’s free Wi-Fi service. The connection is fairly decent within some malls, but the speed is not so great. But who am I to complain when I’m not even paying for it.

Bought a 3X optical zoom, 12 megapixels, sleek & thin Samsung camera (since my powerful but bulky camera had also been sent packing to India).


First picture from my new camera: Ganapati – who happens to be big in Thailand as well

In the evening, Tomi & I went to Chinatown to see the Chinese New Year (Tet) celebrations. We visited the Golden Buddha temple, walked through the enormous crowds of people in Chinatown, sampled some of the fine foodstuff on display, and checked out the dragon dances.
