Woman Making Phuang Malai

Woman making Phuang Malai

The woman made a floral decoration called Phuang Malai

Shot at Pak Khlong Talat Market in Bangkok, Thailand.

Many people worked in the area where floral decorations were sold. Most of them made the decorations and sold at the same time. The woman with her hair piled up also worked in one of the shops. A string was in her hand. And she was threading the flowers. What she made was a floral garland called Phuang Malai.

It was common to see it during walking around the streets of the city here. Phuang Malai is not only used as offerings to the temples or shrines, but also kept for good luck. At any rate, it is believed it is lucky throughout the country.

The woman in this photo made it happily. So I thought the garland which made by her could bring good luck very well.
