BANGKOK | MALL INSTALLATIONS

The main malls in Bangkok are always competing with each other trying to see who can make the biggest and most intricate installations. It seems like this year there theme for the start of the “winter season” installations is “Green”.
This is from the main atrium at Paragon looking up towars the Emporio Armani store and the rest of the floors. ….a real jungle all around filling all the indoor spaces. (….at least plants and flowers are super cheap here)
(Central world has huge flower installations)

SINGAPORE | POZU SHOES PACKAGING

While in Singapore I discovered the Pozu shoe brand and its packaging….
biodegradable coconut box that can be used to grow seeds, and then planted.
Po-Zu = “pause” and reflect

HONG KONG | GLACEAU BRAND BUILDING

A sneak preview of the new Glaceau brand building in Hong Kong.
The city is being taken over by Glaceau….but I guess that is the power of Coca Cola. …what is happening is obvious; “stock your store with Glaceau or lose all the coke brands” 😉

BANGKOK | WORLD’S BIGGEST BILLBOARD

Bangkok = the city of huge billboards.
The highway from the city center to the Bkk airport is lined with large billboards. However, the last turn before entering the airport is lined with what is probably the worlds biggest billboard. Samsung has owned it for the past year (not any more as of last week) and has for the past year very graciously welcomed me to/and from Bkk – since this is the first and last thing one see’s when coming/going from Bangkok.

I’ve tried to estimate the size, and my very conservative guess is at about 15 cars in length.
I guess at least you can see it also very clearly when landing/taking off.

HONG KONG | RECESSION IS OVER!

These pics were taken a few days ago in Hong Kong (on a random afternoon) outside the Chanel, Gucci and LV stores. note: These stores were not having sales.

People are out shopping! Signs that the recession is fading.
…this looks like the old days in Japan where people spent so much on luxury goods, that there was always a line.
