I'm glad that they restored the interior of MBK. It was kinda drab 4 years ago.

But my favourite is Siam Discovery. It has a nice outdoor plaza and the place feels hip and cool.

Siam Discovery is cool. MBK doesn't look that nice but it sure is a great place for bargain shopping.

I don't think so., Because u can also find the "no photograp" sign at every entrances. I believes thats about the copy-right of the interior-design stuff...IMO:

Too bad, many malls don't allow photographs. but i am sure they are not that strict though. because i remember some of my female friends used to take photos inside Seacon Square.

Oh okay.. sounds strange but maybe the have studied consumer behaviour and found it doesn't make sense to build them taller!?

well........a security personnel stopped me from taking pictures inside MBK. Then I just carry my camera around and snapped without looking into the viewfinder (luckily it is a digital camera).....hehehe

I even managed to take pics of Gaysorn ( discreetly of course! ) even with its security looking at me because I had a camera with me!
