On my holiday I went to Chang Mai and we bought these really cool paintings. You might want to click on them to enlarge them. I am sorry I am having trouble with the layout.
The yellow painting with the dead trees:
All we know is that it is from the Brown House Gallery
The lantern painting
- The painting is called Zai and the artist is Niwat Kosoi a Thai artist
Today I had a lot of fun snorkelling and exploring the islands. Here is some of the pictures of the trip. I didn’t take these pictures from the internet. The main highlight islands is Koh Yung which near the beach on the shallow waters there is many crabs, small fish, coral, shells, shrimps and sea slugs. Another place is called Hin Glang which is beetween the island Phi Phi Don and Koh Hong where I went snorkelling. I also took pictures of the GPS in the ship when we reached the islands.
From Thursday to Sunday I will be going to Phuket. (I’m in Phuket right now.) I’m having a lot of fun right now. Tomorrow I will go snorkelling. Here is a picture of the type of villa I’ll be in. (My family is using the smaller villa but it looks like this one.) My camera malfunctioned so I couldn’t take a picture of the villa. (This picture came from the internet.) I’m staying at Sheraton Grande Laguna.
Tommorow is going to be one of the most important days in the history of Thailand: Father’s Day! well, acually, this day is the birthday of the Thai King! Everybody rspects our King because he brought hope to the lower people in society. Everybody is wearing pink. Why? Well, since yellow is already the color of the protestors in thailand and the King does not want to mess with politics. He lets Abhisit the prime-minister of Thailand solve all about politics. So, Let’s All wish the King a nice happy birthday.
Wear a pink shirt to school tomorrow to celebrate the King’s birthday. It’d be great if everyone in 6SS had a pink shirt on!
Khun Warunee came to 6SS today in order to run a special lesson all about Thailand. Our unit of inquiry is all about changes – changes in thinking and changes in the course of history – so Khun Warunee thought it would be fascinating to look at change from the perspective of Thailand.
