Hi guys! I trust everyone has had a wonderful week at work, and to ring in the weekend I thought I’d add this funny little video I’ve seen on Thai TV from time to time. It is Issan (Northeast Thailand) music commonly known here as Luk tung but with a comical twist…see if you can listen close and hear the English bits of the song. The list of place she goes through are all tourist venues in Thailand, and also when she says “I tell you know”….she means I’m telling you this so you will know about it. There are cute little bits of Teng-lish sprinkled through out the video, and it makes me laugh every time i see it. Soooo….I thought i’d share it with you peeps out there! Have a great Friday guys and hopefully will speak to you over the weekend. I’m off to scout the SouthEast tomorrow and inspect the house where I’ll be living! Speak to ya soon!
Ok, last video of the week i promise but this was so very cute and funny that I thought everyone would get a good laugh out of it. You know, I’ve talked about how traumatizing it was for me to grow up as a gay guy from the south and my high school years were filled with torment and anxiety. I , and i’m sure many others with alternative lifestyles, often wonder how different our lives had been if we’d received acceptance and support from our peers at that crucial stage of everyone’s life. Well, one of the things I love about Thailand is the tolerance of differences exhibited by the Thais and you can see that even in a high school setting differences are sometimes appreciated and celebrated. Very often openly gay teens are accepted by their schoolmates, and here’s a good example I found over on the Youtube. It seems to be a talent show of some sort? Anyways, the music is from the Wondergirls that seems to be a sweeping hit all across Asia and its a very cute example of the gentle nature we appreciate in many of the Thai people…especially in light of recent events. Sooooo…have a watch and let me know what you think if the “Wonder Gays!”
I’ll be back in your ear pussies on Monday, so enjoy this mini DJ set in the meantime.
Have a great weekend, y’all!
