How is your week going? I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday. Here is a lotus flower for you. Isn't it incredible? I picked it on one of my recent trips in rural Thailand to spend some time with the Ban Laem Community. They rowed me out into the middle of the pond, like a Princess to pick it!
Oh me, oh my what a life!
Mind you, if you can see the photo below I had to walk the gangplank of the bamboo path to get into the boat! You can read more about this here:
All good here, although I'm missing being in Australia at the moment as it is the Spring Racing carnival's Melbourne Cup weekend. It's a lovely time of year, spring is one of the best times anywhere in the world don't you agree?
We've not got any horses here but we do have loads of animals in my corner of the world.
Whereever I go in Bangkok,
I always seem to find the elephant in the room. Haha!
Guess what happened out our way this week? The Christmas decorations went up in one of the Bangkok malls. Is that happening out your way?!
Come for a wander with me.
This is Emporium one of the really upmarket shopping malls and we seem to have a random amount of colourful animals... I'm wondering what the folks at Dolce and Gabbana think about it all?
It's big, it's bold, eye-catching and colourful and I'll leave you to tell me what you think...
... apart from it seems a tad early to be thinking about Christmas.
You can't miss Christmas here in Bankok
These are life-size giraffes!
Anyone got any idea what these monkeys are all about?
How about some Koala love?
May I be the first to wish you a Happy Christmas?
Running now before you throw a Christmas bauble at me!
Before I do, I've been busy on my travel blog, when I'm not in Bangkok I've been out wandering Thailand.
Do pop over here and say hello, I'll love to see you there.

Have a great week everyone!
