THAILAND-LIFESTYLE-OFFBEAT

'Luuk thep' (child angels) dolls are displayed at the Economic Crime Suppression Division after more than a hundred of them were seized in separate raids, in Bangkok on January 26, 2016. A craze in Thailand for pampering lifelike dolls to bring good fortune doesn't seem to have done the trick for some vendors, who on January 26 were raided by police on charges of tax avoidance. Known in Thai as 'luuk thep' (child angels), the pricey dolls, which can cost up to $600, were first popularised by celebrities who claimed dressing up and feeding the dolls had brought them professional success. / AFP / CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT (Photo credit should read CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT/AFP/Getty Images)
