Make-Believe
Values & Ideas
Exploring make-believe situations and pretending to be make-believe
characters are enjoyable ways to develop our creativity.
Make-believe also gives all of us the opportunity to role-play solutions
to real-life problems. It allows even the most withdrawn and self
concious to express themselves in a non-threatening environment.
Understanding make-believe is important to the development of our ability to
know the difference between things that can really happen and things
that cannot happen. There are a number of questions to consider when distinguishing
between what is make-believe and what is real:
- What are my favorite pretending games?
- Why do I enjoy pretending?
- How do make believe animals differ from real animals?
- Why is it fun to pretend that I am someone else?
- What important things can I learn from stories about make-believe characters?
- What important things can I learn from stories about real people?

Pupils share their experiences about favorite activities on the


beach or in the field.
3. Ask the question : What is a season?
Ask the pupils read the short story on the board :The seasons are different times of the year. In Thailand, there are
three seasons.
The three seasons are called cold season (or winter), summer and
rainy season.
The seasons are different times of the year. Each season is about
four months long. In some parts of the world, the weather changes as
the seasons change. Peoples, plants, and animals change with the
seasons, too. The seasons change slowly, year after year.
We go from summer in SongKran (Thai New Year) to rainy
season to cold season, and back to summer again.
4. Teacher : How about the seasons of the world?
Seasons are different around the world.
When it is summer in one part of the world, it is winter in
another. Some places have hot weather all year long. There are even
places, where it is cold everyday of the year!
In some places, summer brings warm, sunny winter.
In some places, summer brings strong thunderstorms.
5. Teacher : Discover Summer!
Divide the class into small groups. Prepare pictures of different seasons and let the groups write about the seasons such as :In summer, the days are longer. There are places in the world
where it stays light out all day and all night. In those places during
summer, its still light outside even when people go to bed!
Summer is a time for growing. Bees and butterflies visit the
flowers and fruit and vegetable plants. The insects help the flowers
grows. Soon the little flowers will turn into beautiful summer fruits
and vegetables.
Many Thai flowers bloom in summer and they had very
good smell.
In summer the tree had only tiny leaves on its branches. With
each sunny day, the little leaves grew and grew. Now that rainy
season is here, the tree is covered with big green leaves.

The sun warms the sea in summer.


The trees are full of bright green leaves.
Insects are out and about in the summer. Sunflowers grow tall in
the cold season at Saraburi.
6. Teacher : Study about summer weather
Sometimes summer days can be too hot! The dog has found a great
way to cool off. Both animals and people like a cool down in the
water when its hot outside. Pools, ponds and sea are fun places to
swim in the heat of the summer.
The hot summer weather brings mosquitoes. On summer evenings, you might notice these insects flying near you and trying to
take a little bite. The buzzing sound a mosquito makes comes from its
wings flapping very, very fast.
Summer days can bring clear, blue skies. Sometimes, though,
there are strong thunderstorms in the summer. The storms fill the sky
with dark, grey clouds. Rain pours, and thunder crashes loudly. When
the storm ends, the sun will shine again.
Teacher : Discuss about Summer Happenings
Teacher and pupils can go outside the classroom : Hurry pupils.
Lets count the butterflies before they fly away.
Eventhough its hot outside, animals and insects are very
active in the summer. This grasshopper lives in a meadow. It likes to
leap from plant to plant. Leaves that grow nice and green in the
summer are its favorite food.
In Australia, its summer time at Christmas. They have insects
called Christmas beetles. On summer nights, they like to be near
bright lights
Summer is the time when some caterpillars do something very
special. The little caterpillar was curled up in a hard shell for twelve
days. Then it turned into a beautiful yellow butterfly.
There are some butterflies that fly 2,000 miles north to a place
where the weather is cool in summer.
Thats a long way to go!

Klai Kangwon Palace


Klai Kangwon Palace stands by the sea in the Hua-Hin District of Prachuap
Kirikhan Province. King Prajakhipok (Rama VII) had graciously to build it as a
summer palace for Queen Rambai Barni by using money from the Privy Purse. He
ordered Prince Iddhidehsarn Kridakara, an architectural graduate from the Ecole Des
Beaux Arts in France and the director of the Department of Fine Arts, to design and
surpervise the palace constructed. Preparation of the site began on October 1926. On
September 21, 1927 a royal mansion and other building were constructed.
A celebration to mark the completion of the royal mansion was held on
10 - 11 April, 1929 and other structures were added until 1933.
As the Klai Kangwon Palace was built as a summer palace, There is no
throne hall in which to hold audiences. The compound was separated simply into the
royal area and accommodation for the entourage by using walls with many entrances.
Originally, this palace consisted of three important mansions faces the sea.
Phra Tamnak Piamsuk, which is the largest is in the middle of the three. Tamnak
Plukkasem, stands on the north and Tamnak Noi stands on the south, are smaller in
size. These three mansions are two-storey building, while the houses for the entourage; Ruen Erb Pream and Ruen
Aimpri, are one-storey.

4. Questions and Answers :What do you know about Thailand?


Thailand is a mosaic of peoples and cultures. The central Thai have
ruled more by consensus than force. The widespread practice of
Buddhism has also promoted racial harmony.
Tell about the short story of Thai history
At the beginning, a people known as the Tai came from southern
China into the Chao Phraya River valley. When the Thais first arrived,
the Austro - Asiatic group were there, speaking Mon and Khmer.
Today four parts of Thais are : the central part, the Northern part, the
Northeast part and the Southern part, all speak the standard Thai
taught in schools. Each of these groups had largly independent
history.
How many groups of Thai peoples are there in Thailand?
There are many groups such as :
The Chinese As traders, the Chinese arrived long, 19th and early
20th centuries.
The Laos Much of the northeast is the group of Laos. Like the
Thais, they belong to the Sino-Tibetan group. They are renowned for
their weaving skills, and some group were different by their dress.
The Khmers Khmer-speaking people are also in some parts of the
northeast, in Surin. Most of them came during 19th century, when
Siam occupied a large part of Cambodia.
The Shans The Thai Yai belong to the Tai family and came from
the Shan States of Burma in the 19th century. Today they are in the
north. Especially in Mae Hong Son and Mae Sariang.
The Muslims Muslims are mainly in the south of Thailand, Pattani,
Narathiwat, Yala and Satun. Most are Malay descent and speak Yawi
as well as Thai.
The Mons These people, who live mostly in Nakon Pathom,
Samutsongkram and Samut Prakan, are not ancestors of the ancient
Mon culture. But they came from Burma.

drama dance. The story lines are drawn from Ramakien (Ramayana).
Khon actors are trained from early childhood in the dance
steps and gestures. A royal troupe was part of the palace in
Ayutthaya and early Bangkok.
Costumes Khon costumes are made of heavy jewelry. The major
characters are different by the color of their dress. Phra Ram,
Phra Lak and Nang Sida usually do not wear masks.
Khon moved outside the royal palace and became popular
culture. Another one is known as Lakhon. This is less formal and
the movements are more graceful and sensual. Lakhon is divided
into three ones :- Lakhon Chatri, Lakhon Nok and Lakhon Nai.
Another form of popular theater is the likay.

a Javanese romance called Manora. They always play in the south

silk they wore and they carried - usually varied according to their
rank. Each costume was strickly prescribed by royal order.
(6) Thai Village There are the temple, school, market and shophouses,
houses on stilts and vegetable farm in the Thai village.
The typical Thai village is built along a waterway. These form
the principal of communication in the countryside. Each village is
self-contained, a Buddhist temple, a school and a market. Usually, a cluster of chinese shop-houses make up the village market.
To stay above flood-waters, many of the houses in the villages
are built on stilts.
Traditional Thai Houses
The basic Thai house of the past, rarely seen today, was a simple
structure of bamboo and thatch. It was raised off the ground for
protection against floods and wild animals. Most family life took
place on a platform outside, the one or two rooms that served as

sleeping rooms. In time, this model is more complex structures of


wood, to suit in different regions, useful and simple.
Central Plain Houses The best known Thai house style is found
in the Central Plains. It has steep roofs with curved boards and
walls. The simplest house consists of a single unit with an outside
veranda.
Royal houses were like in design except that they were closer
to the ground and had more decorated. A famous example from
early Bangkok, is Tamnak Daeng. It is in the compound of the
National Museum, now. Built by King Rama I.
(7) The Thai temple or Wat. It is actually a complex of buildings
and religious monuments within a single compound. It is in both
age and arts value. It is designed for many purposes in the
community. One section houses the resident monks, while elsewhere there are structures for worship. They are for education, for
meetings, for cremations, and so on.

(9) Thai Food, like Thai culture, is the product of various influences
: Ordinary fare in Sukhothai and early Ayutthaya was simple :
mainly fish, fresh or died. Mixed with rice and vegetables, a few
spices, and a salty sauce made of fish or shrimp. Others came
through increased contact with foreign cultures, China and India
in particular, and also Europe.
Today it covers a wide range of dishes many of them
regional specialties. Those of northeast are generally regarded as
the spiciest. In the south seafood is plenty and Muslim food
appears on the menu.
Royal Cuisine Thai food that is cooked and served with elegance
is often called as royal cuisine. Since it is supposed to have
been cooked by palace chefs. Fruits and vegetables are carved
into different shapes. They are served with colors and textures
carefully matched. Turning each dish into fine art.
A Thai Meal is an informal affair, even in rather grand households. Steamed rice, some kind of curry, a soup and a spiced
salad, along with fish source, chopped chillies or num prik and
fresh vegetables or fried vegetable with pork or shrimps. And
fresh fruit for a dessert.
(10) Thai Fruits and Sweet Thailand is not only with many kinds of
fruits, but also with some of the best kinds of fruits to be founded
in Southeast Asia. There are more than two dozen kinds of
bananas, including a small, finger-size noted for it sweetness.
There are mango, durian, pineapple, jackfruit, rambutan, mangosteen, melons, lychee, papaya, guava, fresh coconuts and countless
others. Fruit always serves as the desert course, but sometimes
they serve for snacks between meals.
Fruit and Vegetables carvings The art of fruit and vegetable
carving was a renowned skill among women of the royal palace.
Even today many otherwise ordinary dishes in restaurants are
served as unexpected flower. In the hands of a tree expert, almost
fruit becomes an object of beauty.
Ornamental Fruits On special time, fruits called look choop
are made from a mixture of bean and sugar. They are colored
with food dyes. They look like fruit and vegetable carving. Deco-

rative baskets of the little fruits are often given as gifts on


birthdays and others.
Sweet Selection Presentation is an important part of Thai sweets.
Coconut custards and jellies are often wrapped individually in
banana leaves. Other popular ones include of rice, sweet potatoes,
pumpkin, palm sugar and fresh young coconut.
(11) The Royal Barges An aspect of Ayutthaya noted by almost every
early visitor. The royal barges, sometimes hundred of them rowed
by oarsmen in beautiful costume. In Bangkok, by King Rama I,
the new barges were used to deliver offerings to monasteries
along the river.
The barges have since been restored or rebuilt and have been
held during the Bangkok celebrations (1982). King Rama IXs
golden Jubilee (1996) and 6th Cycle Birthday (1999), as well as
the Apec Summit (2003).
Ekchai Barge There are two Ekachai barges in the procession.
They are used to carry religious items.
Suphanahongsa The most important of the barges is the
Suphanahongsa or Golden Hansa-swan-like mount of Brahma - in
which the King rides.
Boat Songs It was a breath-taking sight. The sound of
traditional chanting river-berated along both banks of the river
which were crowded with people waiting to see the event. The
rhythmic barge songs still survive, varying in pace to match the
different speeds and strokes of the oarsmen.
(12) Thai Language Thai is a language belonging to so - called group
of Tai-kadai languages. That includes Shan and Khun in Burma.
Most of the words are mono-syllabic. There are five main dialects
in Thailand. Literature is mostly written in the central dialect
spoken in and around Bangkok.
One of the main difficulties in learning Thai lies in the
various conversational styles! There are several speech levels in
spoken Thai, which depend on age, sex and social factors.
Thai Alphabet
According to tradition, the first Thai alphabet was created in
1283, by King Ramkhamhaeng. It consists of 44 consonants and

474

05 Eng._p.465-500

474
Black

10/7/08, 9:50 AM

32 basic vowels. That can not be used alone and are written in
close relationaship to the consonants in order to create syllables.
(13) The Elephants The elephants which once roamed wild in large
number in Thai forests, has played an important cultural and
economic role for countries.
White Elephants were the symbols of Royalty. Thai National Flag used to be a white elephant on a red background.
The royalty of Ayutthaya rode into battle on war elephants.
King Rama IV offered a supply of the animals to US President Buchanan. Valued for their skill, elephants once provided
the main work force in the teak forest, in the north of Thailand.
Now, most of the elephants, entertain tourists.
Elephants In War Their value in war may well have been the
taming elephants.
In the 16th century Burmese, forced against Ayutthaya consisted of 300,000 men, 3,000 horses and 700 elephants. One of
the most celebrated encounters in Thai history was an elephant back duel between the Ayutthayas King Naresuan and Burmese
Crown Prince in 1592, in victory for Naresuan.
Elephants in Hunting Kings and royal princes often role on
elephants white hunting.
The White Elephant acually a silvery gray were revered as
symbols by rulers in the past. Even today when one of these rare
animals is discovered in Thailand. It is presented to the king and
kept in Chitralada Palace, the royal residence. Ten have been
found so far during the reign of King Rama IX.
Southern Round Up In southern Thailand, as where wild elephants were captured by driving them with drums, trumpets and
gunfire into stockades where they were tamed and trained.
(14) The Festivals Festivals are sprinkled throughout the Thai year,
religius and secular, national and local high-spirited and gravely
reverant.
Since the earliest days of the Kingdom; a Sukhothai stone
inscription, describing an annual event. It says : They join
together in striking up the sound of musical instruments, chanting

and sining. Who ever wants to make merry, does so; who ever
want to laugh does so.
To-day Thais seize almost any occasion for a chance to wear
their best clothes and celebrate, whether it has one of the several
milestones in the Buddhist calender or merely some motable
village event.
Plowing Ceremony The royal plowing ceremony an ancient marking the start of the rice planting season. The ceremony for the
King and his people take the role together. It had been allowed
for many years by the present king in 1960. Held every May at
Sanam Luang, it is colorful event that climaxes with a production
of the coming harvest for Thailands farmers.
Royal Holidays Many Thailands celebrate the monarchy and
involve public decorations as well as festivities. These include the
birthdays of the King (December 5) and the Queen (August 12),
the date of the founding of the Chakri Dynasty (April 6), Coronation Day (May 5) and Chulalongkorn Day (October 23), which
honors the dynastys beloved Rama V.
Candle Festival The beginning of Buddhist Lent, or Phansa,
during July is observed in the northeast city of Ubon Rachathani
with the Candle Festival.
Songkran. Officially, Thailand begins the new year on
January 1, The old solar New Year, called Songkran, continues to
be a major three day celebration in mid-April. Offerings are
brought to various temples, where both the abbot and the principal Buddha images are anointed with lustral water. Homes are
given a thorough cleaning and homage paid to senior family
members. Outside, pleasure reigns in the form of decorated parades, beauty contests and buckets of water cheerfully thrown at
anyone passing in the streets.

never see a live one. You can only imagine what it would be like to
meet a dinosaur on the street. They didnt walk on streets though.
Some dinosaurs walked through jungles.
Dinosaurs were huge, and some of them had spikes on their tails.
Even the dinosaurs that had a brain as small as a walnut had big
bodies. So if you ever see any footprint, be careful! You might get a

Dusit Palace

(from : Sawasdee Magazine)


In 1897, King Rama V announced that the old grand palace was
warm, especially during summer and that he would built a new
summer palace among the orchards and rice-fields outside Bangkok.
He christened the new palace Dusit. Construction started in 1899
and continued on and off for a dacade as the King spent more time at
Dusit and less at the larger and more formal Grand Palace.

from Italy for the finishing work. The first building to be completed
was the Phra Thinang Vimanmek which was actually moved from
another site. This new Royal residence was the largest teak building in
the world. Other structures followed in quick succession : A throne

His Majestys Distance Learning Project of Thailand and A Look

In His speech given to the audience, which included the Foundation Committee members on 19th January 1999 at Dusidalai Pavillion,

learning via satellite system:

10/7/08, 9:50 AM

As far as the distance learning via satellite system is concerned, it is the project that has supported the activities of the
Rajaprajanugroh Foundation as well. This is, not least because when
our people are more educated and our children can better learn different academic subjects such as science and languages, they would be
able to live their lives well in fact, not only well but very well
indeed. Moreover, schools under the distance learning via satellite
scheme have been trying to incorporate the ethical and moral teachings into their curricula. As we have worriedly observed that our
youth today has seriously lacked the proper moral conduct and behavior, the result of which has been the widespread of drugs-related
problems and different forms of violence. Hence, the activities of the
distance learning via satellite project will significantly help improve
the quality of our people
To celebrate His Majesty the Kings 72nd Birthday Anniversary in
1999 and to honor Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra the
Princess Mother, who has been named a Great Personality by UNESCO
on the occasion of Her Birth Centenary in this millennium year, the
Foundation with a free-of-charge cooperation from the Royal Thai
Army, has completed the installment of the distance learning equipment in more than 2,700 schools with the purpose of giving an equal
quality of education to students all over the country. One result has
spoken clearly for itself that in the last two years of 1998 to 1999 a
good number of students who received education via satellite have
been able to pass the entrance examination to study in universities.
This suggests a certain efficiency of distance learning in eliminating
the sinequality of education.
Between February 10 - 12, 2003, during a visit to perform the
royal duties in Sakon Nakhon and Nakhon Phanom provinces, Her
Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn went to observe the
work progress of the Baan Huai Yang Nuer Child Development
Center in Srisuphan District and the Promotion and Development
Center for Toddlers by Senior Citizens of Baan Kud Sakoy in Kudsumal
District, Sakon Nakhon Province. In the event, Her Royal Highness
presented items to the childrens caretakers and the representative of

the children after which she watched performances by the children as


well as various activities being carried out at the centers. She also
visited the housewives group and observed their textile weaving
work.
On this trip, Her Royal Highness visited several schools including
Baan Bon Saharat Uthit School and Baan Ngiew Siriras Bumrong in
Kusumal District, Sakon Nakhon Province; Baan Had Sai Phey Border Patrol Police School, Tha Utane District, Nakhon Phanom Province; and Conrad Henkel Border Patrol Police School, Phoan Sawan
District, Nakhon Phanom Province. At these schools, Her Royal Highness presented items to the teachers, the border patrol police teachers,
and the student representatives as well as gave fruit tree varieties to
the representative of the farmers. Her Royal Highness also conferred
honorary pins to the implementing officials of the Royal Development
Projects. Furthermore, she observed the science laboratory, the language laboratory, the computer room, the library, the canteen, the
kitchen, the school cooperatives, the agriculture for school lunch projects,
and the iodine drinking water pavilion. In addition, she watched a
demonstration of the learning and teaching methods according to the
Late Princess Mothers technique as well as visited the mobile medical unit and the villagers waiting to welcome her.

Tourist Attractions in Thailand: Part 1 Royal Barge Procession for the King
Richard: Hi, Supong. When I was in London. I found a grand boat procession on
the Internet. Its quite interesting. Can you tell me what that was?
Supong: Sure. That was the Grand Royal Barge Procession gliding over the Chao
Phraya River. (barge - )
Richard: Oh, really? What was the processions for?

10/7/08, 11:36 AM

Supong: Well, royal barge processions have moved along Thailands waterways
for centuries.
The Kings usually ride on one of the boats - the Suphanahong or
the Golden Swan - when they travel to the royal riverside temples to do
some important things, like offering yellow robes () to monks after
the end of Buddhist Lent.
Last month the Grand Royal Barge Procession appeared again on
June 12, 2006.
Richard: What was it for?
Supong: Thats a good question. The procession took place again on that day to
mark King Bhumibol Adulyadejs 60th anniversary accession to the throne.
He has been King since June 9, 1946, and he is the longest reigning King
in Thai and world history.
Richard: Wow! I can imagine how exciting it was to watch the procession.
Supong: Youre right! Thousands of people lined the banks of the Chao Phraya
River. The King and Queen and the royal guests the Kings and heads of
state from 25 nations watched the procession at the Royal Navy Institute
( - Ratchanawig Sapa). The procession started at about 4.45
pm. from the Wasukri Pier near the National Library to the Memorial
Bridge.
Richard: Did you join the celebration?
Supong: You bet! I went to see the procession at my uncles riverside house where
I had a very good view.
Richard: Lucky you! I missed the chance. Well, how many barges were there in
the procession? And How many men were there in the crew?
Supong: There were 52 barges and 2082 crewmen from the Royal Thai Navy.
Richard: Thats cool. And how long was the procession on the river?
Supong: I think it was over a kilometre long. The barges were gliding over the
river with a 45-minute boat song describing the Kings Sixty Years of
great works for his people.
Part 2 The Royal Barge Procession for the King

Periods 10 - 11
Richard: Hes really a great King.
Supong: Right. Besides the procession, there were 20,000 kratongs and 600 lanterns floating on the river on the night of June 12, 2006 to give the King
and the royal guests a gorgeous view before leaving. The Royal Thai

Navy and the private sector also lit up the sky over the Chao Phraya
River with spectacular fireworks.
Richard: Wow! Ive heard that people from all walks of life came on that day to
pay their respects and show gratitude to your beloved King. I wonder
why Thai people love the King so much?
Supong: Um, maybe its because he stays close to the people and listens to their
needs. He always tries hard to guide his people in how to live happily
through his royal projects and the Sufficient Economic Theory. His theory
is very modern and timeless because it focuses on human development.
For this reason, the United Nations SecretoryGeneral, Kofi Annan,
named him the worlds Development King. On 26 May 2006, Mr Annan
came to Klai Kungwol Palace to present the King with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Richard: Oh, really? Thats a great honour for the King and his people. He must
be the first person to win this kind of recognition.
Supong: Yes, he is. His ideas and projects help all Thai people. He is our wish and
we love him very much.
Richard: Lets follow the Kings Self-Sufficient Theory.
Supong: Good idea.
Richard and Supong (together) LONG LIVE THE KING!
Richard: Youre a good guide, Supong. Thanks a lot for the useful information.
Supong: Youre welcome, Richard.

Welcome to Cha-Am - 40 kilometres north of Hua Hin. My name is Win Komson. Last month
I went to Cha-Am with my parents. We wanted to visit my grandparents. They have got a bungalow and
seafood restaurant on the Cha-Am beach.
When we got there, they welcomed us warmly with seafood for lunch at their restaurant. We
talked a lot about Cha-Am. I asked my grandpa to tell me more about Cha-Am and its people. He
explained to me that Cha-Am used to be a small fishing village. But now it is a popular beach among
the Thais and overseas visitors who love tasty seafood, white sand and comfortable bungalows or hotels
on the beach.
After that we walked along the beach. I could feel the fresh air and the breeze. I wanted to stay
overnight but my parents planned to stay at Hua Hin for two days. So we left for Hua Hin at six oclock
in the evening. We checked in a hotel near the beach.

Day 2 When in Hua Hin --After breakfast at the hotel, we went sightseeing around Hua Hin for an hour. There were a lot
of interesting things, and the weather was fresh and clean.
Next, we drove to Klai Kangwol School because we wanted to visit Klai Kangwol Palace. We
knew that the King was staying there for a change. So we couldnt visit the palace without asking
permission. Then we took a trip to the Royal Rain-Making Station in Boh Fai to study the Kings RainMaking Research and Development Project.
His Majesty realised the importance of having enough water for farming in the dry season. He
tried making artificial rain. Finally, the first rain-making was successful. If rained at Pak Chong, Nakorn
Ratchasima in 1969.

10/7/08, 11:36 AM

The Royal Rain-Making Project has offered artificial rain services to farmers across the country
since 1971. There has been more rain than that given by nature. Thanks to the officials of the Royal
Rain-Making Project, we learned how to make artificial rain. The King is really clever.
I felt hungry, so we stopped for lunch at a seaside food shop. The food was good. I liked it very
much.
In the afternoon we went to the seaside near the hotel. We walked along the white sandy beach
looking for beautiful seashells. Then mum and I went swimming. Dad, a golf lover, went to play golf
at a nice golf course. I enjoyed swimming very much. It was also good fun to see people swimming,
diving, skiing in the sea and hiking on the beach. Thats why I fell in love with Hua Hin, a wonderful
place for families and tourists.
We knew that King Bhumibol himself a saxophonist and composer, played jazz as hard as he
worked when he was young. We loved jazz too. So after dinner we went to the Hua Hin Jazz Festival
2006 to listen to jazz music at the Sofitel Beachfront Stage. There were two stages for six bands from
Europe, South America, and a group of Thai jazz musicians. Both stages were on the beach in front of
the Sofitel Central Hotel and the Hilton Hua Hin Hotel. We loved to join both shows, but we had very
short time in Hua Hin.
The jazz that evening was great. And I will never forget it.

north.
Cycling is one of the best ways when it comes to exercise. Your mind and body feel the freedom of
being outdoor traveling by own power. You may wish to new played seeing new things all the time. When riding
especially, slowly up hill your mind would react and concentrate to fully utilize your internal energy. Therefore,
