Soap Carving in Bangkok. My Last Thai Story

Soap Carving
New designs of Malisa school

At the last day of my staying in BKK, I had soap classes at Malisa school. After a week training I was confident about serious designs (better to say, my teachers felt OK to teach me the serious designs :))    I passed the carving test and was allowed to carve the new designs).

All my soap carvings were made in pink because soap bars of other colors were not soft enough for that carving style. I was given with some of  the special tools to work on soap.

Each soap took two hours of concentrated work.

Malisa school can teach any level students, from beginners to professionals. At the class I had a seat between two teachers from Osaka and Tokyo, they came to Malisa to learn new things of high level.

Pity that was my last day in Bangkok

The last evening in BKK I spent at Arab Market across Sukhumvit Road.  The district has a name Little Arabia and looks like a big market with street restaurants, fruit shops and jewelry/bags/clothes/gifts/massage saloons, freak beggars/transvestites/tourists and no cats. It is crowdy till night. If you pass through the market you will get Terminal 21, a modern trading center at Sukhumvit Road. 
I just wonder how all the things can exist together at one place :) That's Bangkok!

This is my last story from BKK. Read all articles about my trip to Thailand here.
