Art in Paradise (Bangkok)

These 3D Trick Eye Museums are such big hits. As my grandkids would say, they’re so “instagrammable”. It’s fun, it’s creative, it’s hilarious! 



The “lolas” (grandmoms) had as much fun — if not more — than the younger set as they joined the kids in funny stunts. Or they’ll have their own snapshots sans the elves and pose like they’ve been doing this all their lives. 



The only problem was we had very limited time here as we wanted to beat traffic going to another place just outside the city. Rushing through all the trick-eye ops can be punishing as you rush here and there, and with kids who just have other things in mind! 



A similar Trick Eye Museum can be found in Manila — the biggest in Asia — but this is in Bangkok where the wedding/family reunion brought us all together and we simply found this place as another excuse for a daytrip TOGETHER. Well, there’s the bus for all 21 pax of us. Sans the bride and groom ! 



There are photos before a set of 3D murals to guide you, along with marked spots on where best to take those tricky snaps. Not much smarts needed; just a good dose of humor, ample time and tons of shameless antics. 



I don’t know where this all started but I have this feeling that we’d do this again in Manila. Without the rush. But likely not with the whole fam. Art in an Island in Bangkok is not that big, housed in a big mall called Esplanade, but it’s good to waste an hour and 400 Baht on .



Now tell me. Do you think the kids enjoyed? Or does it look like adults enjoyed more?

Retired early, but still active. Very involved in celebrating life! I love traveling because I always come back with less cobwebs in my mind. It is as if I empty my mind of all clutter upon departure, and fill it with many happy memories upon arrival. I also like the idea that life is so focused on the present, and my senses are all playing to listen, feel , see, smell and taste everything novel or not so new. The fact that I only have to choose from a limited wardrobe, or use the same pair of shoes throughout my holiday , or work and survive on a single budget make life so much simpler. Sure, you sometimes get a raw deal in a few trips, or feel hassled by flight delays and cancellations, but the joys and simplicity of the present far outweigh the negatives. Oh, btw, I always end up gaining more friends after each trip. Many I kept......
