At least Market Village lights the specials bays up blue instead of green.
And sometimes a moron parks where the cars are supposed to exit! 4 days ago in Market Village. Picture taken by my wife. According to my her it was an old Thai man.

Drives me nuts as well. I made a complaint about it, although I am now wise to the problem. Maybe if they get more complaints they will change things? At least they haven't yet got the 'supercar parking' thing as you find everywhere in Bkk.

By the way BP does have VIP parking in the ground floor new the wine shop, no idea who is classed as a VIP, I thought my wife was the only VIP

I am finding that the local markets in Bangkok are still running okay, especially the ones that have the fresh veggies
and meat products. All in all I have seen that the economy is worse than I thought it was and except for some
night shopping, the small market where I am staying is very quiet. In Thailand I still see that a lot of business
is cash. In the department stores and malls, I do see credit card usage, but it seems to me that Thailand
is still about 10 years different than North America. In Canada, some of the big stores have the pick up
at store service, that sometime works, and they still charge a three dollar to five dollar charge for the service. So I still prefer to go into the store and get my own stuff even if it means I may have to intermingle with my fellow human
beings. Walmart and Super Store, or the other Mall stores are where I still shop, on line is okay for some
but for seniors, it is not a totally trusted means to shop. I hope I can visit BKK and Hua Hin for many years and
enjoy shopping at MV, or the big new mall, when it opens. I do like Makro in Hua Hin as well, as it has lots of
products at good prices.

Yes many businesses run on cash only basis then pay no VAT, income tax and no contributions to running the country.

Blueport is open and quite good.

At the Mall in Korat, they have or had feedback sheets left about for completion. I received an acknowledgement about a couple I completed, including one telling me they now stocked something I had asked about (I asked why something was available in Bkk, but not Korat).

The VIP parking is for people who spend a lot of money at the store! Not sure how it works though, nor does my other half, but she is working at BP next week and said she will find out.

Ah well, she checked on the company website. Spend 100,000 baht, get free privilege parking for 3-months, spend 500,000, get free privilege parking for 12 months.

I might have missed this elsewhere on here, but there's a huge sign at the front of the closed East Square advertising it and the 40 room Manathai hotel, to the rear, as being up for sale. The hotel was okay when I stayed there, I wonder what will become of that area.

By the by, you can use the reserved parking on the level 1 car park at Bluport, if your or your other halves have a Citi credit card that's issued by and operated in conjunction with the Mall Group. Yes, yes, I know that hardly any will, but I thought I'd mention it.

Yes, that sign has been up there for a few months now.
