Can anyone explain Bangkok’s moustache obsession to me?
Here are 4 photos I captured in the last 24 hours out and about the city.
I’ve also seen t-shirts with mustaches on them, and teenage girls wearing moustache rings. (Ingenious, actually. You can hold your finger above your upper lip for an instant moustache effect.)
So interesting… and confounding to my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I think facial hair is fabulous (though I prefer a beard – and I’ve never had much facial hair personally) – but I am confused by this apparent city-wide fascination. Maybe I’m not hipster enough to understand.
And, as if this post wasn’t confusing enough already, a very important question for my reading audience: Is it spelled mustache? Or moustache? Help a girl out, please.
