Land Of Smiles

I recently went for a holiday in Bangkok, Thailand. This country is also known as the "Land Of Smiles".

Even the figurines even had a huge grin on their faces.

The green little green monster "CJ7" has also taken over Bangkok. This old aunty flashed a cute smile at me when I was taking a picture of her.

Thailand is also known for it's famous "Lady Boys". In our local language, they are known as "Mak Nyah" or "Pondan" or "Bapok" or whatever you want to call them. These ladyboys are everywhere. It seems to be quite a normal thing to have in Thailand and it is generally accepted by everyone.

I wonder if there are 3 gender columns when they fill out forms, e.g. "Male", "Female" and "Lady Boy".

This "Lady Boy" lives true to the spirit of Thailand being the "Land of Smiles".
