Looking for Love?

If you have been looking for love in all the wrong places, here is the place to visit to help you with your quest. Every Thursday night at 9:30 people give offerings of red roses and incense and pray at the Trimurti Shrine in front of Central World Plaza. The golden shrine represents Brahma, the source/Creator; Vishnu, the Preservre; and Shiva, Destroyer/Creator. According to an article in the Bangkok Post, one should wear red, present offerings, and pray for his/her true love. The article also had accounts from people who had finally met their loves after worshipping at the "Love Shrine."This seems to be popular with the local population, but not widely known among the expat community and tourists. A single/divorced friend visiting from Canada decided to give it a try - after several years of experiencing various dating scenes with no prospects- it couldn't hurt. She returned to Canada - three months later, she met her man. Coincidence??
Thursday night I brought another friend and my daughter to the shrine. I'll let you know when they find their loves.
