Monday Dinner

I'm preparing instant noodles for my today's dinner. More importantly, water morning glory will be put into the pot to add a good flavor. I can cook easily because the cooking method is not complicated. บะหมี่สำเร็จรูปผสมผักบุ้ง อยากกินมานานแล้ว บังเอิญวันนี้เห็นยายคนหนึ่งกำลังขาย เลยช่วยอุดหนุนยายด้วย 


Now, it's ready to serve.

The Charms of Wall Paintings in Southern Nakhon Si Thammarat

I do believe one of the charming things that can stop you from walking on is definitely 'wall street paintings', always seen in cities. Today, I would like to take you to Nakhon Si Thammarat, one of the richest provinces regarding culture and tradition, to view the life-like wall paintings in the town of Nakhon Si Thammarat. I definitely have a selection of the best wall-street-painting photos to share with all of you here. Let's view them! 


I posed for the best photo in front of the creative wall painting, reflecting the symbolic beauty of culture, tradition as well as way of life in southern Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand. 




A great pagoda containing relics of the Buddha and Buddha's holy followers, mostly brought from India, at Phra That monastery, the most significant temple of Nakhon Si Thammarat province, was intentionally painted on the wall to showcase its iconic pagoda, symbolizing the peaceful town, peace and harmony.

As Nakhon Si Thammarat people always revolve around Buddhism, painters often painted places of worship and a great pagoda of Phra That temple, situated in central Nakhon Si Thammarat, to show the most special icons of the province.

Phra That temple's great pagoda surrounded by four stupas. 

A so-called image of the lord Buddha, who was widely known as the greatest one, the most respected one, and  the enlightened one, was painted in the sitting meditation position.

Black & white pagodas with Buddha's relics inside and an old wall have long been very meaningful to the people.



Lots of symbolic provincial things can be seen -- temples, pagodas, old utensils, etc.

Beboymanyou's Sayings


"Most students have a great dream of being good at GPA rather than focusing on what they learn in the present moment."
นักเรียนส่วนใหญ่ฝันแต่จะทำให้เกรดเฉลี่ยออกมาดีมากกว่าการโฟกัสไปที่อะไรที่เขาเรียนอยู่ในปัจจุบันขณะ 




"The greatest mistake in my life is about fear of making mistakes."
ความผิดพลาดที่ยิ่งใหญ่ที่สุดของผม คือ ความกลัวที่จะผิดพลาด

"Don't learn only to finish, but to know."
ผมไม่ได้เรียนเพื่อจบ ผมเรียนเพื่อรู้


"Being a student is good. Being a top student with great knowledge is better. Being a top student with both great knowledge and behavior is the best."

เป็นนักเรียน = ดี 
เป็นนักเรียนที่เก่งพร้อมวิชชา = ดีกว่า
เป็นนักเรียนที่มีทั้งวิชชาและจรณะ = ดีที่สุด


"Setting goals is useless if you lack action."
การตั้งเป้าหมายนั้นไม่มีประโยชน์ ถ้าคุณไม่ลงมือทำ

"Whatever all humans can do, you can do as well."
อะไรก็ตามที่มนุษย์ทำได้ คุณก็ทำได้เช่นกัน

Life after Graduation


Life after MA graduation


Life after MA graduation

After having newly graduated Master of Arts Program in English (Inter-Program) from Mahachula Buddhist University, one of the two biggest Buddhist universities under the sponsor of the Thai kings in the Land of Smiles, I first looked back at my old school named "Srariang", where I used to spend three years finishing my highschool level, and also wanted to do something for the school. I later thought of repaying the school by teaching English, because I did nothing for the school during the aspirations for my BA and MA degrees. 

I was lecturing my novice students at Srariang Buddhist school on reading comprehension on Nov 7, 2015. 

With my intention of this, I was back to my old school in Nakhon Si Thammarat province to make what I intended to do for the school become true. When I first met with Srariang Buddhist school director Phra Kruphrommakhetkanarak, my ex-teacher, in his main office at Srariang Buddhist school, which is established inside the area of Srariang temple, he showed a sign of his desire of giving me a teaching position. To make my long story short,  I finally accepted to work as an English teacher, and then he handed in an unofficial timetable to me. The timetable showed English classes for Grade 7, 9 and 12 students requiring an English teacher to be responsible for in the first academic term 2015. Luckily, I came in time, so that I could fulfill its classes. Time really does fly! It has now come to the second week of the second term 2015 since the school kicked off on Nov 2, 2015. 



A Good News that I got while working at the school

While joyfully working at the school in August, I also got a good news from high-ranking Mahamakut Buddhist University administrators Phra Maha Thammaruth, Phra Maha Prathin and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dejchart Trisap, who have kept following my study progress on my Facebook page since I became a university student, about English teaching job. I was happy to know that my MA study results interested them as I was the first-class student of Mahachula Buddhist University, and they surely wanted me to be an English lecturer at the university. Fortunately, my school director did not get in the way of my future profession at the university, he strongly agreed with me on being as an impermanent teacher at Mahamakut Buddhist University in order to have enough time for my working hours at the school. And he thanked me for being back with the intention of replaying the school by teaching English.

A group photo was taken after class at Mahamakut Buddhist University on 31 September, 2015.
