Yesterday we all received the sad news that the beloved King of Thailand had passed away. His passing didn’t come as a big surprise as the King had been struggling with poor health for a while now, but I was still deeply saddened to hear this news.
If I would have been living back home in Holland – tonight would have been spend with family and friends celebrating Sinterklaas. My nephews and nieces would be all excitedly waiting for Sinterklaas to arrive and leave some great gifts. But I am not in Holland, so I won’t be doing that tonight. However, we do celebrate something else here in Thailand, as today is the birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
