One of Thailand’s traditional handicrafts is fruit carving. Indeed, it’s impossible to go to any Thai community event without seeing a plethora of intricately-shaped melons and carrots to delight the eye.
In this photograph, ’Pong demonstrates that he’s the worst fruit carver that Thailand has ever seen.
I dunno, maybe his creativity was stifled by the fact that it was early in the morning. And I suppose there’s only so much you can do with a hotel butter knife.
Nonetheless, I do recommend you check out his post about Thai alternative music.

It’s the alternative fruit carving.
@’Pong: As Alex Willemyns reminds us, John Safran explained this use of “alternative”…
In this case it means “alternative to quality”. 😛
Why do I sense a patronise here?
I like it.
Although perhaps if it were photographed with less skill it wouldn’t be so appealing. (end pun unintentional)
zoe: Photographed with less skill? It’s pretty rough as it is: leaning over the breakfast table with my phone.
serendipitous composition then :S
