king's birthday

On December 5th, 2007, the king is 80.

Thais showed their respect for His Majesty by wearing yellow- the colour that symbolizes Monday, the day of the king was born. Well, not only Thais, on this day most people here wearing yellow.

We were here with Thais in rachadanun street, when our driver called my husband telling him that the king just finished his speech from the palace, and would pass this street very soon. So we crossed the street and got ready. The police started to put the yellow (big&long) scarf in front of yhe people. Wow... we were in the very front row, how lucky !

When The king's car passed, I was about to wave my hand when I realized people around us clasped their hands in respect. "Long Live the King" echoed in unison throghtout the air, it was a sight never to be forgotten.
