Think Pink

In Western culture, the color pink is mainly reserved for girls and for the occasional confident guy who wears pink oxford shirts and neckties. In Thailand, the color pink doesn't carry such associations. It's a color everyone seems to fancy, including the King. Today, my cabby who was once a military solider told me his favorite color is pink. I should have known because all the religious objects and other accessories in the cab, including the lace-trimmed seat covers, were tinted pink. Even his long pinkie fingernail was painted a striking shade of magenta.
