Happy Birthday H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej!

H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej is a very respected figure by the whole of the Thai nation. On Sunday the 5th of December it was his 83rd birthday.

Throughout Thailand festivities to celebrate this occasion were organised.

On December 5 there was an offering of food to the Buddhist monks in Phuket Town and a great many people (including Tim) attended this special event.

The signing of a ‘Birthday Wish Book’ followed the offering of food to the Buddhist monks.

Then there was a violin performance in Patong (Ed. Not the usual sort of entertainment on offer in Sin City, I can tell you) and devotional candles were lit.

The ceremony was concluded with a special candle-lighting ceremony at Sapan Hin.
