Travel: Parasol Parade in Thailand


This photo reminded me of the parasol parade that I witnessed during my trip to Thailand and so I wanted to share some travel photos from last month.

In Chiang Mai, we were lucky enough to watch strolling beauty pageant contestants march in the Parasol parade.

The updos were so pretty.  here are some close-ups!

Here is a shot of the parade walkers.

And here are some of the pageant contestants biking by!

The whole neighborhood was a feast for the eyes.

Don’t you just love the color explosion?

I was estatic to be surrounded by so much color and creativity.  Everywhere I looked, I found so many exotic, interesting finds.

I was so tempted to bring back a custom-painted parasol when I saw this catalog of images.  But really, when would I ever use it in NYC?

What would you have had painted?



Cupcake Car

I love cupcakes.  I make them for every occasion – birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, you name it.  So when I ran across these cupcake cars, I couldn’t help but stare and imagine myself driving down the neighborhood in one of these.  Check it out!

And yes, the car comes with the matching hat! lol  Thanks to the budget-less minds of Neiman Marcus, you can now ride around at 7mph in this gloriously cute cupcake car (ehem for $25,000)

What’s it made of? A 24-volt electric motor, a heavy-duty battery, sheet metal, wire, fabric, wood…and mad genius. Launched at Burning ManSM as a cooperative art car project, the Cupcake Car sprang from the fevered mind of Bay Area artist Lisa Pongrace and her less-rules-more-laughs posse of artists and techno geeks. Yours will be tricked out with your favorite topping, so start thinking flavors.
