KTV Girls

KTV Girls, water color on paper, 18x24 inch

There must be more than ten thousand Karaoke Bars in Bangkok.  The songs are stored on hard drives and delivered digitally.  The whiskey and cola mixer comes on a stainless steel tray with a fresh bucket of ice.  Tasty Thai snacks are cooked to order.  Some KTV’s are hi-end, others tucked in corrugated sheet metal sheds.  There are usually some girls, to laugh, drink and sing with you or for you, smiling, flirting, mixing the drinks and ice.  It’s an instant party, so long as you have the cash to pay.
