Pretty Paradox

On Thong Lor Road, a street that is considered one of Bangkok’s more upscale shopping and nightlife districts, I regularly see a Hummer parked in front of a particular clothing shop. Never mind that the only vehicle more poorly suited for the crowded streets of Bangkok is a dump truck, this Hummer catches my attention because it is bright pink.

While I don’t care much for Hummers, I do appreciate that this one defies expectations, a big brawny car in a color more often associated with femininity and softness. Of course, here in Thailand, those sort of cultural presumptions are often knocked on their ear.

  1. ive seen that pink truck here as well. i have to admit though, that colour looks better on that particular model than any of the other cars I’ve seen it on.

  2. Bubble-gum pink truck: something to keep that trip on the road interesting. =)I wonder if the driver is a teenager or not, though. Then it would make even more sense for having it painted in that colour.

  3. That’ll sure make a scene, especially when stuck amongst those colourful taxi cabs in the traffic streets! I wonder who’s driving this hummer?
