Still a few more blog posts I am going to milk out of our trip to Bangkok. Don’t worry, we did other things than shopping. We walked from one shopping mall to the next! No, no, just kidding. Well, not kidding, we did walk from one mall or market to the next one, but we also visited the Temple of Dawn un-ironically at a time other than dawn. We’ll get to that one in the next post. But first, the random stuff we saw in Bangkok.
Now the story of the cat has nothing to do with the cat. The real story of the cat is what we found next to it. I had a 20 minutes video of what we found and depending on whether or not the American technicians Iris has given my old hard drive to can fix it, I might still have a 20 minute video of the most random and weird and wonderful thing we stumbled upon during our time in BKK. Maybe the most random thing we have ever stumbled upon.
It was a dance cover contest. It took me a few minutes to understand the basic concept. Essentially each team covers the dance moves from a video/live performance of their favourite band. It is safe to assume, given where in the world we are, that they were covering K-Pop bands. It is honestly fascinating that K-pop is the dominate art form in all these countries buts that’s another story for another day.
Well that’s all for now.
