The worst dressed at Golden Globes 2014

1. We have absolutely no clue what made a ‘Pretty Woman’ like Julia Roberts slip on a menswear inspired Dolce and Gabbana collared frock for the Awards.

2. Twee. Zooey Deschanel’s Oscar de la Renta ensemble at the Golden Globes was just that. The flower in her hair, the embellished crop top, the embellished shoes? Where were we supposed to look first?

3. Drew had that happy pregnant glow, but her Monique Lhuillier dress was dull. We loved the make -up, the red lips and the red pumps – but the floral dress was nothing to write about.

4. We so wanted to pluck out that extra growth off Paula Patton’s dress.

5. A perfect ten for make up. Hairdo we like, skin tone next to perfect, but then came the Prabal Gurung disaster. It was clearly a misstep. Perhaps her first in recent times.

6. Aubrey Plaza's dress with that giant bow looked straight out of a 2000 album. More of a bridesmaid dress than something you would wear to the Globes.

7. Red suits Bérénice Bejo - but not the updo, nor the layers in the dress!

8. This corseted floral ball gown from Rani Zakhem looks a bit big for Kaley Cuoco. Her locks did not help too.

9. A tough colour to carry off, Lena Dunham fails again. And she told Ryan Seacrest 'none of this is quite right on me.

10. Uma Thurman’s black Versace dress was interesting – that is to say from waist up.

Shopping in Aranyaprathet Border Market

There are only 2 reasons to come to Aranyaprathet the border district of Thailand near Cambodia. If you want to cross the border by land from Thailand to Cambodia, and the other is to visit the never-ending Ban Klong Luek Market, there are some pictures of the market:

1.    It’s a busy afternoon at Aranyaprathet as locals come to do their regular shopping for meat, fish and other creatures from the sea.

2.    Tubs and tubs of live crabs greet us on the road. Even as they are packed in plastic bags, a couple of them make a quick escape and run onto the roads.

3.    Another favourite is frogs

4.    If there is something more colourful than the market and the locals, it has to be these pink eggs, which are so much in demand.

5.    Fish and more fish. I see several fishermen putting up their stalls and selling their catch.

6.    This seems to be a live counter. Seafood is the speciality, and some of these counters sell them boiled, cooked, steamed and raw.
