My prayers were heard!

I was admitted to the hospital for a surgery. As it was my first time in the hospital, i took along the tanga i alwaya wear with me. since no necklace or jewellery were allow, i took a clip and clip it on my shirt. But since this is not my usual practice, i actually forgotten about it after my shower, only after 3 hours then i suddenly realised that my tanga is missing.

I was panic, really panic and quickly inform the nurses in the ward, i guess my face had clearly shown that i'm worried that it will be lost. But at the same time i know it's gonna be very difficult for them to trace back because the cleaner had clear away the basket 3 hours ago and the hospital is hugh, there will be piles and piles of dirty laundry waiting to be collected by the laundry company.. lots of what if come into my mind.. what if they can't find the bag since there is no label outside the plastic, what if the bag was transported out of the hospital etc.. I started to pray in my heart to Rahu, i pray that he will let me have my tanga back, please blessed that i can get i back, it's very important to me. I start to talk to Luang Pu Hong, I pray that let me have the tanga back and i will never let it leave me. I started chanting and chanting. Phew... after about an hour, as time passed, my panic didn't go off.. and suddenly, i saw the staff nurse walk in, with a tissue in her hand, carefully cleaning something and she came to me with a big smile, that moment i know, my prayers are heard, no wonder Luang Pu Hong always said, if you need me, chant and i'll be with you.

Thank you so much to Rahu, to Luang Pu Hong as well as the 3 nurses who help me digging in bags and bags of dirty laundry. Actually i plan to go to the temple last night, but as i'm still having difficulties in walking, guess i can only do so next week. But as i say, They heard my prayers, they will forgive me for not going down last night. I'll be there next week.

Because of my health, i was introduced to this master by my colleague to check out what is going on, of course, i did went for proper medical advice and partly because i wanted to change my job, so I thought why not!
Was Amazed because all i gave him was my name and date of birth and he told me not to say anything before he ask me too. When he wants me to answer him then i open my mouth. I was like " Huh"... OK... Then he started to tell me from the day i was born and so on.... I WAS AMAZED & that moment i thought, yes, i've found the right person! Although some of the thing he said was my parent passed away when i was quite young,(pretty sad) but it's True & this colleague of mine was not aware! Then he said i had a bad fall before, causing problem with my spine.. True True True..and then he said of my three fingers, either hand, there is a cut.. True enough and i would say the cut was pretty minor, you have to bring my hand closely before you actually can see it, which he didn't. At this moment, I would say I'm really impressed. Especially the falling part. Then he told me what is wrong with my health... BINGO!
And he follow by a massage session! yes! he took a mirror, a ruler and he start measuring my face and found that both side are different by 1/2 inches and he started to ask me to stretch out my hand, he start pressing some point, which was pretty painful i would say. Then after that we measure again.. Hmmm the difference is GONE! All the people around me was amazed too.
Then he say i have problem on my back and shoulder, very tense and again, BINGO, he got me to stand up and he started to "stretch my body", it's like thai massage, and i really felt so "shiok" after that! Then he gave me some holy water to bring home.
The whole session was great, we just have to admit this is worth a visit and I'm happy that i got some of the doubts cleared.
Thanks Uncle Tony, Thank you!

看到这张照片你们有何感想?不是要你们看那盒五颜六色的糖果有多美丽,是把焦点集中在两个孩子的身上。看一看他们的头上/背上背了什么?不是洋娃娃,是一根根的树枝,大的不说,看看那个不到3岁孩子的身上然后再看看你们身边可爱的孩子们,你们有何感想?是不是像我一样很心酸,为什么我们家的孩子那么幸福,要什么就有什么,而远在泰国,缅甸,金三角那里的孩子却是那么的可怜?如果我们每个人都愿意对他们伸出援手,帮助他们,那么是不是就能改变他们的一生?当你们把不要的衣服,不要的玩具都丢进垃圾桶时,想想看,贫穷人家如果收到了这些可以让他们穿,可以保暖,完整无损的衣服时那种开心满足是金钱所买不到的。 穷人家的孩子,没有玩具这种奢侈品,他们小小年纪,不要说是玩具,连套像样的衣服和鞋子都没有,身上永远是脏兮兮的,脚板被磨破了皮也不能喊痛,没有鞋子就算是哭也没有用。当我们在烦恼该买什么颜色的鞋子时,想象有多少人是光着脚顶着大太阳在山上行走的。他们要的不是什么名牌服装鞋子,要的只是可以遮体的衣服,可以行走的鞋子。


If all of us play a part in helping and contribute for the less fortunate, the world will be happier because there are lesser people suffering.
The people from the Hilltribe need helps, many of the villager had never seen any stranger before, let alone knowing there is such thing call " photo". They do not have enough water in their village for personal use and cooking or have toilet facilities available in the village. Children in rural areas of northern Thailand started to help out in the family when they are supposed to be in school, part of the reason, there were no proper school build for them. They have no sense of hygiene, they have no proper medical help and that's why they needed people to stretch out and help them. Providing them with basic care in the way of food, housing and education for hill tribe orphans or children from broken hill tribe homes.

Wat Sothon Wararam Worawihan - Chachoengsao

Due to the Red Shirt protest in Bangkok. we decided to change our plan of staying 2 nights in Bangkok. Hence from Chiangmai, we took the plane back to Bangkok, but since our flight is 9pm hence we decided to go to the temple which we always wanted to visit~~~Wat Sothon (for details of the temple, pls follow this link to my previous post~~

Arrived at BBK airport around 1.30pm. I went to the tourist information counter and ask them if i can make ip back to the airport before 7pm. The nice lady say no problem and wrote for me the name of temple in thai so that i can show it to the taxi driver. No time to waste, i get to the taxi stand and show it to the lady and she arrange for me a taxi who is willing to bring me there, returned trip at 1500b.On the way to Chachoengsao we passed by several checks stand guarded by the army and we can sense the tension around.

The whole journey is about 1hour, and we were amazed how beautiful the temple can be! It may be the oldest temple in Chachoengsao, it's simply gorgeous! The Luang Pho Sothon is Enshrined inside the new gigantic hall and the whole place is crowded by many devotees from all over Thailand

Lunch With Monks

Half way during the visit to temples, we stop by to have lunch. I would say S'poreans are pretty pampered, as we are on the way looking for a restaurant, the driver stop by aside of a house which was pretty run down. We were expecting at least a decent "restaurant" or maybe a coffee shop, yet the monk told us this is the place we will be having our lunch! Hahaha, we were expecting somewhere with Air-con, Chiang Mai in April, no joke, at least 40 degree celcius! Anyway, we are strangers there, so we just follow suit.
As it's all in Thai, there is nothing i can help, so we told the monk to just place order of whatever they want to eat and at the same time, order our food too. I would say, the food is CHEAP & GOOD! Really yummy. We spent less than S$20/- for all our dishes ( 4dishes with soup, rice and drinks! mind you, for 7 of us!) And it's the BEST meal we had throughout our 4days in Chiangmai!
