Even though the lakorn itself has ended beautifully, every character still lives on for me…especially those lovely elephant-turn-actors/actresses. This is the song I loved so much and is very well-received. Kudos to all the cast and crew, I can’t thank you enough for bringing this novel to life. Even the author herself praised James Ma… Read More ›

I’m still not sure how I felt after watching this episode. I need more time for my brain to process but mostly I felt like something was missing.

It’s entertaining to see cute men and girls running around here and there for two hours+ and talking nonsense (mothers aside)…once in a while.

If you are wondering about how the Thai society takes on other genders (besides men and women) these days, I’m not sure about others, but people I know take it very causally, as in, be who you are (let us know too) and everyone can be friends, also, including the elders.

Let’s clarify about Nu Na’s name a little bit. “Nu Na” literally it’s how rice-field rats is called [nu= rats, na = rice field], but for this series, it could be that “Nu” is an endearing prefix whereas “Na” is a shorten name of “Lanlana”, so her parents call her “Nu Na” as her nickname … Read More ›
