Teachers' Day in Thai language My two great kids with me...... Early morning we attended a teachers' day celebration here in Hatyai, Thailand. We need to be present because we are required to do so, and we had seen how they give honor to all Thai teachers, giving them gifts and more. However, I felt bored because we (me and my hubby) don't understand their language. Yet their action speaks. Teachers are really given importance by the authorities especially in the government. Right after the ceremony we went home and prepared for a sports' fest. Can you imagine teachers having different squads and dancing while shouting their yells? They look like students with their attire, playing drums and other paraphernalia for their songs and yells. I really love taking photos while they perform. It doesn't matter whether we understand the language or not but the thing is, they are cute and they perform with gusto. Can you imagine the teachers performing with gusto? They are cute. Games for teachers to enjoy Even our kids enjoy while watching teachers playing a lot of games. I was supposed to join in the eating contest which is so different from ours in the Phil. but I wasn't able to join because my students are coming to the center and they wanted to finish the course. So I don't have any choice. Anyway, I'd been there seeing all the teachers in their different-fabulous attire, and playing just like teenagers...lol, it's fun and we enjoy. It's a great day!

Last Sunday we attended a Thai church. It's so amazing how they speak in another language while doing their worship. Although it's hard for us to understand but there is a feeling of comfort and belongingness on our part. We've been to different fellowship but our son would always tell us that he likes that place better and wants to go back. It's really different in the Phil. because after their fellowship, there would always be lunch prepared for everyone. It's nice right? Our lunch is always free on Sundays...lol! Anyway, Thais are friendly, they would always give you a smile.
