    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 07/11/2018

    » Hung on the walls of Sukhumvit 43's Galerie Oasis are oil paintings oozing with grief, melancholy and pain. There's a figure of a woman crucified on a giant cross with blood streaming out of her hands and genitalia; an angel with empty eye-sockets holding his bloody eyes in his hands; and Buddha standing on a bloody lotus with a skull instead of his usual serene face.

    Sentiment lost in symbols

Mostly because it's become a bit of a societal requirement -- you're considered a total misanthrope if the neighbours notice that you don't show up. Besides being shunned by the village, would I be forever blacklisted by the water gods for choosing to opt out of this eye-watering and ecologically reckless festival?
