Fuchsiaboy Terrorizes BangCock

Don of Fuchsiaboy stopped over in BangCock from his whirlwind trip in Las Islas Filipinas, including presenting his collection at Philippine Fashion Week, among other things. He arrived last Monday afternoon and we did not waste a minute in sowing terror in the city for the two days he was here.

We immediately strutted in every posh shop in Erawan Mall, Gaysorn, and Siam Center. Donita went crazy seeing her best friends Martin Margiela, Comme des Garcons, Issey Miyake, and all those designers whose names I could not pronounce, much less spell. I swear I would not dare enter those shops without Don. I even finally went inside the Balenciaga store in Paragon! I ran my fingers through every fucking item they had on sale and it felt like I was touching pieces of art.

Speaking of art, Don would not leave BangCock unless he sees the Louise Borgeois piece, Ode a Me Mere, at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. (Thank God BACC now allows picture-taking inside the museum.) Ode a Me Mere is that much coveted humongous spider sculpture. Incidentally, I missed this piece on my first visit to the BACC. We also went around the cavernous halls to check out the other pieces. Don, who works as a curator in Siem Reap, was quite impressed with the exhibition and it even inspired him for his future designs. Are we seeing spiderwoman walking in his next show? Gasp!

After the BACC we had to rest our weary feet in a cafe in nearby Siam Square. It was my first time to be in this cafe and I wish I discovered the place much earlier as apparently they have free internet and design magazines galore. The interior is not bad either. However, the name of the cafe shall remain unknown as I will keep it as my refuge from now on.

Of course since we were already in Siam Square, I had to be Don's personal guide around the edgy shopping area. I've always looked forward to showing it to Don coz I know he would have an orgasm there. Thank God Siam Square did not disappoint him. He even bought a few items that I'm sure we would read about in his blog. Oh, I will also leave it to him to write about his imporessions of Thai design. Needless to say, he was very very excited and future trips to BangCock are going to be more frequent. See you soon, bitch.
