I love flowers. It just cheers me up when I look at its rich colors and natural beauty. Nothing refreshes my soul more. Its one of God's creation which I never get tired of enjoying. Every so often I feel like isolating myself from human company but NEVER flowers.
Whenever I go to the wet market, I usually purchase a mix bunch. The flowers are reasonably cheap THB10 per stalk (RM1 / USD0.35). Carnations and orchids will last longer than roses, so, the other day, I opted for carnations. At least I can enjoy my flowers for one week rather than 2-3 days.
I know, I know, you must be thinking that I am so pathetic, to buy myself flowers. Well, I have learned through the years that if you like something, don't wait for someone else to get it for you. Just buy it YOURSELF. Doesn't matter if its that dress, shoe, blouse, food, bracelet, necklace or flowers. I have learned to pamper myself, once-a-while.
The Thais being predominantly Buddhist, purchase flowers for prayers. So, the flowers are sold everywhere but mostly orchids and chrysanthemums. They will tie it up in a nice small bunch and sells it for THB10 (RM1/USD0.35).
