Today’s date is 3-4-56 in Thailand. In addition to knowing Anno Domini (A.D.), we also have our own method to count years. It’s called Buddhist calendar which started counting after Buddha’s death 1 year. This year is 2556 in our Thailand’s calendar which can minus by 543 to be A.D. year (2013). If we write today’s date using Thailand’s calendar, we will get 3-4-56 (Thai numeric = ๓-๔-๕๖) which some of us are kind of excited with this nice orderly number.
Today is not only nice number, but it is also my birthday and my dad’s. I always feel that my birthday is special because I was born on the same date with my dad which is 3 April. However, it is the working day in this year so we haven’t done anything. Our family is planning to have a nice lunch out on the upcoming Sunday. We will eat at one of our favorite restaurants. I’m looking forward to being there with my family.
Happy Birthday to my dad and me – 3 April 2013
