takoyaki, costumes and Hello Kitty: pictures from Soi Thaniya

i like this guy's attitude

A few days ago I took some nighttime pictures in Soi Thaniya, a Bangkok street popular with Japanese people and especially Japanese men.

Takoyaki, interrupted:

There was an entirely pink store full of Hello Kitty gear (or just “Ki-teeee”, as they call her here in Thailand). The best was this Hello Kitty keyboard:

Does your city have an interesting street where you like taking pictures?

    Hmm, do you think she is a ladyboy? Maybe, now that I look at her more closely!

      Hi Elizabeth, when i look at her more closely, she does kind of have a square, maybe masculine jawline. But mostly i thought she didn’t really look Thai, maybe luk kreung?
