An Accidental Ecosystem in an Abandoned Mall

Constructed in 1982 by the Kaew Fah Plaza Company, the 11-storey New World Mall enjoyed a brief period of success. It was soon shut down due to legal concerns and demolished. A fire left the place without a roof.

Without a roof, rainwater filled the basement and this pool of stagnant water soon became a breeding place for mosquitoes. Annoyed, the vendors in the neighborhood got together and released a few fish into the water, to get rid of the pesky mosquitoes. The fish multiplied quickly, and soon the building became home to a 500-square-meter miniature ecosystem for thousands of koi and catfish.

It is now a popular tourist destination.

Remember when it was my birthday. That was cool.

Is the cat sleeping or dead? Only I will ever know.

Look how fucking comfy this cat is.

Look how fucking comfy this cat is.

I have to stop and think, “What the fuck is wrong with people?” way more often than I should.

I found a peeping tom.

I’m one step closer to starting my job. My fingerprints are in the FBI database so now I have to be really careful if I ever want to commit crimes.

I’ve killed like 10,000 yetis in Maplestory today, This is what I chose to do with my life.
