Fed up with Thaksin ? Enough of Abhisit ? And all the other clowns ? Have a drink and some “weird-bigotery” appetizer.
Twelve “demon statues” at Suvarnabhumi airport believed to have brought bad luck to shopkeepers will be moved at a cost of one million baht.
The guardian spirit statues will be shifted from the inner zone of the passenger terminal to the check-in area to “improve morale” of people working at the airport.
Suvarnabhumi director Niran Thiranartsin said the sculptures were modelled on 12 statues at the Grand Palace. […]
Mr Niran admitted the decision to relocate the figures from the inner part of the passenger terminal had partly resulted from complaints from staff working in the inner zone which has many shops.
The shopkeepers are blaming the “demon statues” for the problems they have faced at the airport, which was seized late last year by demonstrators and supporters of the People’s Alliance for Democracy. (Bangkok Post)
It’s totally surreal ! I love it.
To move those statues, why not. But what is striking is the justification… AOT and King Power employees (?) have “problems”, so they blame the statues, so the management agrees to move them.
Why not blaming incompetence, corruption, the recession ? Of course not. The statues are a much better choice, target. 😉
Just another perfectly normal day in Thailand…
