Pray For Thailand

We all have been saddened by the long flood disaster that has hit Bangkok today. While the water level has dropped significantly in Ayutthaya, the woes in the city of Bangkok remains unsolved. Their Loy Krathong festival has just ended and the Thais were still in the festive mood to place their wishes onto the flower floats down the water everywhere! They did not have to gather at the big rivers or klongs (canal) at all.

Some Thais are angry at the prolonged disaster and blamed the Red Shirts instead besides their weak government as reported in news. I asked a Thai lady the reasons the Red Shirts were being blamed? She pointed out that the Red Shirts had earlier on collected many bags of their own real blood and smeared them around the city including splashing outside ex-PM Abhisit's house at Sukhumvit area. They said their uttered curse was grossly horrible and had brought this disaster in return, as expected to their folklore beliefs. So better not curse anyone as they might work!

I have been gluing to my Facebook everyday to check on the well being of my Thai friends and relatives. I think most of them were badly hit with extensive damages to their houses. Some of them are so wealthy and left their homes submerged while they retreated to their posh condos instead.

I have stolen all the photos from their FB without their permission to share with you all here.

They taught me that when your legs are submerged in murky waters for too long, your skin will peel besides getting bad sores. Their remedy of prevention is to smear their legs and body with cooking oil before wading across the flood waters!


These lady friends still could be in high spirits and jovial mood!



They hired this gorgeous hunky man to build low walls to barricade! He was so hot that the ladies had to post every inch of his movements all over in their FB!! Polygamy is nothing to the Thais sometimes.



This is the typical scene outside their homes and the water does not move at all. The residents would just measure the depth everyday, cm by cm! If it goes down by 1 cm, they would be jubilant and even celebrate!! That is how low they pin their hopes!


This rich family has abandoned their home as the low walls and sand bags could not save the main door. It has reached their gate posts outside.


My friend who is a Merchant Exporter at the Baiyoke Towers rallied people to help make thousands of life jackets ala Cottage Industry style to distribute out.


The flood has badly affected over 9.5 million Thais, young and old ones.


A royalty friend showed the photo near his home where the 2 canals from the North meet days before the whole city was flooded as it was not easy to prevent such a big flow of water.


His mini palace could not be spared too but he did not post his home being flooded later probably due to the electricity being cut off eventually, so no facebook.


This is the daily scene in the back lanes Soi around Bangkok where they have to wade across very dirty and blackish water. How on earth could I swim happily inside those murky waters when I was a kid? Call me stupid then! Ha ha...


Millions of sand bags were being made and sold to barricade all the river banks but with little success.


This photo is most popular inside the Thai Facebooks besides those showing monkey carried a dog and pigs riding boats.

Pray For Thailand.

  17. Anonymous - That guy became hot cake in many homes. Now I have doubts about him after seeing William's comments.

    Coffee Girl - You can find many hotties like this in our West Malaysian gyms!

    Suituapui - I am tired of their ordeal too. I wanted to visit BKK in December but it looks bleak.

    William - I am dead curious to check out with my female friend who posted it and got a long string of Thai celebrities rambling about this hottie in Thai. She had a few other angles and I wonder whether it was a fashion shoot? They are good for making fakes, don't they?

  18. SK Thambee - I was alive and kicking at Mines lah. Why didn't you ask Wisma Putrajaya to send a boat to rescue me? So Thambee dying to have 6 abs? Stop eating your roti chanais for 3 months and no muttons dei... Then you can dance with your pants off too. Muahahahaha!

    FoongPC - Thambee is silly ok. Flood go away!

    Medie007 - I blame their karma for everything.

    Wenn - Yes I wish that it will be back to normal soon. I sympathize with my cousins who mostly had been relocated.
