<p>Siamese Smile Contest, 2010<br />  
Siamese Smile Contest is a day marathon smiling contest whereby an award in cash is provided to the one who can smile the longest of the day. (We finally got the winner who can smile up to 172 minutes.) The contest took place in JJ Market Creative Space where diversity – varies in social classes, religions, ages, and ethnicities – of a crowd gathered. "Siamese Smile" is a gimmick which the Thai government uses to promote tourism during the age of recession and Thailand's political turmoil.</p>
