I have recently transplanted myself away from Cebu and I'm now living in Bangkok, Thailand as I'm already working here. Hurray! Last time I've checked, people have been lining up in droves in the first few 7-Eleven branches that opened in Cebu City but when I arrived in Thailand, everything seems to be normal like any convenience store should. No one is lining up for the slurpee like there is no tomorrow.
No one is taking picture of their microwaveable goodies like a kid in a candy shop although I was like the only one taking picture of the ready-to-eat "Japanese" meal I bought. The thing is, there are so many food to choose from 7-Eleven Bangkok-style! It has replaced the sari-sari store that I used to. Of course, if I do get bored with the same flavor and goodies, I can always drop by at any TESCO Lotus stores. Perhaps, I can head to that favorite street vendor who sell phad Thai and other stuff that I barely know of.
Check out how Thais take 7-Eleven as a normal store.
Have you noticed the difference?
Anyway, I just heard about the recent brouhaha over the Cybercrime Law back home. I just hope no one would make a big deal out of this. By the way, they are getting crazy with Krispy Kreme!
