    another stall, the imbellis poster is pretty wicked isn't it?..

    [​IMG]
    most of the vendors were nice enough when they realized you were keen on the plakat..

    WOW! LOOK AT THOSE PLAKATS WOOT, VERY NICE! I have a question. The picture for "most of the vendors were nice enough when they realized you were keen on the plakat.." there seems to be clear glass bottles inside the betta tank. What are those for?

    my better half checking out the goods, the guys in the background had some fighting fish fighting..

    [​IMG]
    you could tell these fighters were all conditioned and the real deal because all you had to do was point a finger at them and they would flare and take it personal..

    [​IMG]
    just a nice reflective pic..

    yet another stall..

    [​IMG]
    check out the trophys and awards, this stall had the "red dragon"..

    [​IMG]
    like it or not, fish fighting is a way of life in thailand, when the fish battle they do what is called a "mouth lock" they lock mouths and tug-of-war until one loses breathe and surfaces..

    [​IMG]
    a giant plakat, i was amazed at how huge he was, too bad there wasn't a regular sized one next to him.

    ok, thats a wrap, hope you enjoyed and hope you make it out to jatujak sometime. i'll post up some different pics in the near future ;)
