A few days back I read in Nancy Chandlers’ web site on Bangkok maps that Siam Jusco at Laksi has closed down. This had been one of my favourite shopping malls way back in 1989. When I revisited in 2002, there had been some decline no doubt, but the complex was more or less the same.
In the world the British are delightfully traditional. They take lots of pains in preserving their heritage, their traditions and theirlandscape. At Stratford-upon-Avon, we are told, that Shakespeare’s house has been preserved in its pristine glory. For some thing to change colour is a sad thing. The only solace is that if at all there has to be change, it should be for the better.
