Shopping malls in Bangkok reopened Tuesday afternoon after nearby antigovernment protests forced officials to shutter the downtown centers for 36 hours.
Siam Paragon, the upscale 5.4-million-square-foot shopping center in the heart of Bangkok’s retail district, reopened around noon. The center, which is built on land owned by the Thai royal family and is next door to one of the monarch’s palaces, was closed Monday and early Tuesday at the request of the police because of security concerns, said a spokesman for Siam Paragon Development Corp. A bolstered security force of 800 officers working with metal detectors, security cameras and bomb detectors was in place at the mall, he said.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
