The Thai Fair

The girls and I chanced upon a Thai Fair in town last weekend as we were crawling the mall. Skye saw the signboard first as we were going down the escalator, so we turned around and went back up to check it out. Curiosity killed the cat, they say, but not this time.

We weren’t sure what the fair was about but curiosity led us first to this live hand-painted umbrella exhibit. My girls were thrilled to watch the artists at work.

I’ve been to a few places in Thailand including Bangkok (the bustling capital city), Chiangmai (nestled in the mountains to the north of Thailand) and Phuket (think sunkissed beaches and deep blue ocean). Shopaholic that I am, I confess it’s the shopping that I love most about Thailand. And Thai food, of course!

As we made our way into the fair, my main thought was retail therapy galore? I’m hoping… I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed. Yes! Rows of little kiosks tempting us with their dried food, home decor and yes, fashion accessories!

We were wandering from kiosk to kiosk and with each turn, more trendy accessories, wow! It’s hard to control the shopaholic in me but I had to limit us to only about 10 items of fashion accessories including these earrings for my girls.

The pair on the right is made of colored yarn, and the one in the middle is a weave made of bamboo. That turquoise and stone ring is mine, all mine, bwahaha!

While everyone else around us were on theiracer netbooks at Coffee Bean, I was going, ta-da, my spanking new ring! Oh so chunky and oh so me 😆 . I’m a ring noob and this is the first ring in my collection. What do you think?
