Songkran Thailand New Year 2011

Thailand is once again getting ready for it’s annual celebration of Songkran Thai New Year 2554

Songkarn Festival Thailand

For many centuries Songkran has traditionally been celebrated as the Thailand New Year, apparently it is believed to have been adapted from an Indian festival. The celebrations will be all over Thailand but the most famous Songkarn celebrations are still in the northern city of Chiang Mai, where it continues for six days and even longer.

The Songkran festival has also become like a party for foreigners and an additional reason for many to visit Thailand at this time of year because they enjoy the fun and games with water in the streets. Sales of water guns sky rocket at this time too as people like to shoot water at each other.

All during the day you can see groups of people young and old having fun at the side of the road shooting water at passers by and the cars driving past. You just have to accept you might get wet so best keep your windows up!! But it is all good fun and it is great to see so many people relaxed and laughing at each other.

Last year I took Dean to Khaw San road in Bangkok to experience the famous water games. If you are in Bangkok at this time and you are game for it then you should go and have a look for yourself but make sure you don’t wear nice clothes because I guarantee you will get messy. Lucky though the weather is usually hot around this time and so it is actually really nice way to cool down…lol.

Here is a fun video we shot in Khaw San road last year for Songkran

 

 

As you can see from our video the roads around Khaw San road are closed off during this time and there are many parties going on in the streets. People dance on tables and even cars and trucks and there are many DJ’s blasting out music all night long. All good Fun!!!

 

Hope you can join us this year for Songkran 2011

Thai Girlfriend to Thai wife – some info on marriage

If you are thinking about making your Thai girlfriend your Thai wife then here are some interesting facts for you to consider.

I have been writing a guest column called “Angella Talks” for my friends Steve and Golf at Thailand Musings and recently I began a post about divorce between Thai women and Farang men and so I thought I would add some information about that subject here as well because I feel it is an important and interesting topic.

You know I talk a lot about what is needed to make an intercultural relationship work, it is one of my passions because I see so many Farang men who have a Thai girlfriend and then decide to marry her and they end up in all sorts of problems due to a lack of understanding of cultures. This is from both sides and is largely what this website is about because it makes me sad when I hear the horror stories about Thai girlfriends and Thai wives and their Farang husbands.

For example recently I read about 2 stories of Farang trying to commit suicide because of their Thai wife leaving them, one was a Swedish man and one was an Australian man and both of these incidents happened in Thailand.

I also found out some interesting statistics that show marriages between Thai and Farang are rising at about 10% every year and have been for the past 10 or 15 years in fact. This is positive news I think, even though the statistics also show that about 6% of divorces are intercultural marriages.

The statistics for divorce worldwide are quite  shocking really with the US at nearly 50% divorce rate for all marriages. Thailand at this stage is down the list at around 6% but………we have to be careful because this statistic is only for registered marriages and many Thai marriages are not registered at a district office…something I will talk more about in future post.

As I have said before I believe the divorce rates between Thai and Farang can be helped by having a better understanding between our cultures and taking more preventative approaches, something which I really hope this website and my service can help with.

So remember if you are considering having a Thai wife then try to get a good understanding first of how the cultural difference will affect the relationship, keep coming to this website for more information and tips and celebrate your differences.

“Ter ja yoo gup chan talot bai”

>You will be with me forever<

by  Clash Brand Thai Singer

ความเป็นจริงวันนี้แม้ทำให้เราต้องปวดใจ
kwarm ben jing wun nee mae tam hai rao dtong buat jai

Although it is true that today we are heart broken.

แต่ฉันไม่ลืมภาพเธอได้เลย
dtae chun mai leum paap ter dai ler-ee

But i can never forget the image of you.

เก็บอยู่ในหัวใจฉัน คิดถึงและเป็นห่วงเธอ
gep yoo nai hua jai chun kit teung lae ben huang ter

Kept it in my heart thinking and worrying you.

รักเธออยู่เสมอไม่เคยลบเลือน
ruk ter yoo sa-mer mai ker-ee lob luean

I always love you and it never fade away.

วันเวลาจะหมุนไปนานแสนนานสักเท่าไร
wun way-la ja moon bai naan saen naan suk tao-rai

For how long times passes by.

อยากขอให้เธอมั่นใจสัญญา
yaak kor hai ter mun jai sun ya
I want you to have faith in the promises.

ter ja yoo gup chan ta-lort bai mai wa eek naan saen naan

ความทรงจำจะย้ำและช่วยเตือน เราต่างผูกพันด้วยรักตลอดไป

The memories waiting to repeat and help to forever awaken us to difference in love relation.
