Bangkok spoils you, so much is readily accessible. Bangkok sidewalks, particularly in the Sukhumvit area, are packed with everything from food and drinks to DVD and t-shirts (Chang & Singha are simply everywhere) and, well, everything.
At this point, I don’t notice a lot of the food and wares on the sidewalks, particularly when I’m not hungry and on my way to work. But this morning there was a new stall on my walk to work- selling girdles. I had to double back, walk back through the smoke from the barbecue and have a look, or a laugh.
There are no other clothing stalls along this sidewalk, loads of food, coffee and fresh juice. And then suddenly- girdles! But this makes some sense, if you buy enough of the barbecue, maybe you need a larger girdle?
