Chai Thai Fair 2009

If theres one thing I love about thailand , it's the fact that you can always find something fun and informitive to do and see . That said , we were coming home from church yesterday and we come upon this huge traffic jam, after a while of moving slow for at least 3 kl. we come to the source, the 2009 Chia Thai Fair . Wow !!! I have never seen so many flowers of every color and fruit and veggies on display in one place in quite a while. And there was hundreds of people in attendance from all over Thailand , I mean this is big . So we finally found a place to park and we joined in the festive. as a said before there was every color and kind of flower that you could think of , and orchids of the likes I have never seen , I managed to bargain for a price at one stand ,of four for 100 baht, all in bloom and very colorful.We enjoy walking around and seeing all the fruit and veggis on display and for sale. And as always , a lot of food for sale. and you know me ,I have to do all I can to help the local economy. ha ha
All the flower displays gave me lots of new ideas for a little landscaping changes for our yard , but I think Ciejay has big plans .
Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them . Do you have flower fairs in your area ? , if not the next time we have one around here , I will give you a heads up and maybe you can join us for the day . Malcolm

Hello Malcolm - As you know Wilai loves flowers and we recently visited the Phu Rua Flower Festival. We had great difficulty on both days finding a parking slot. Flowers are not really me but I got great pleasure from seeing the pure joy the festival brought to Wi and on the second day I managed to find myself a quiet spot for a few beers. Enjoy your potting and planting.

Flowers give me hay fever, but I don't mind looking at them from a distance! I had to do some flower market bargaining myself in Chiang Mai just before going back to France, a friend in the UK desperately needed a bouquet taking to his loved one that very night, he'd managed to forget her birthday. So I hit the market stalls - the first one I happened on was run by katoeys. The bouquet I liked was offered at 600 baht, I got the price whittled down to 400 baht. While I was thinking about it, katoey number one disappeared. I approached katoey number two. 800 baht he insisted, and wouldn't budge. I was about to head off to another stall in disgust when katoey number two vanished as well, and I was approached by katoey number three. How much, I tentatively enquired? 200 baht, came the reply.

No bargaining this time, I quickly accepted before number two returned, handed over the cash (number three first added a few more posies for luck for the same price)... and made a quick exit. It had to be a quick exit, because I was beginning to understand why I was being offered such a low price.... :-0
