For my friend in need

I knew that I have been missing from this blog for a long time. However, I come back here again in order to help my friend in need for support from around the world.

My friend’s name is Keng  which means “Skilled” or “Talented” in Thai. He is one of the most cheerful, optimistic, strong person I’ve ever met. He had diagnosed with cancer once and he fought and he won at that time. Unfortunately, that cancer has came back again.

According to some of his words below:

What do you do when the doctor tells you that you have the final stage cancer with no cure…?

Hello everyone — parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, and friends.. My name is Keng, 31 years old. I’m currently having a cancer called “Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma” (ACC) a type of salivary gland cancer that very little people will have. It’s also the type of cancer that does not respond to common treatments like Chemotherapy and has been spreading down to both lungs. So they can’t be removed by surgery or radiation. There is very little or almost none of the related research and development on this type of cancer. So there was no good treatments that can cure this cancer. Nonetheless I’ve tried 12 treatments for chemotherapy but none of that has stopped it. With the side effects from those chemicals I can only keep following up on my conditions monthly. The doctor told me last year that I could die as soon as within one year, which was so hard to accept. With all my spirit to fight, after the chemotherapy I turned to other types of treatments like Naturopathy, Psychotherapy, Arts, and exercises that fit the current disease. Even though the disease is still there but it hasn’t spread out too much and the tumors are growing quite slowly. The doctor asked me if I can still breath fine every time. And I’m still alive today.

….

He has been fighting with that cancer since then. He is still working in order to earn money for treatment. Keng has also tried Genetheraphy and unfortunately the cancer did not stop. Anyway, he has been given the opportunity to join the Immunotherapy program this time. The treatment will need a certain amount to get the 1st one. The doctor will re-evaluate the effect of this therapy later so we will know how many more treatments he will need.

Therefore, our friend has set up the funding in order to gather money for Keng.

Anyone who has read this post and would like to know more about Keng and this funding, please visit this page Help Keng fight Cancer!

The Silent NEWS

Something not right happened here in my country where people against Thai Military Junta could be abducted from their normal life according to this news Student Activist Leader ‘Abducted’ from University. I don’t say that I agree with their activity. But it’s not right to be abducted like that neither. This is not normal. This isn’t the thing you should accept without saying anything. Thus, not my peers have said anything or even for me.

Quote by Liu Xiaobo

I cannot express my worrisome over this military act via my social network or around me since I’m not sure about the reaction. And this happens to me for a long time since my country has been ruled by Thai Junta. I’m living in fears. I know in my heart that it’s not safety to say or act against them. You can say that Freedom of speech hasn’t been heard here quite a while. I believe that some people think they can say whatever they want but no! they just can act or say things the government approved them to speak. They may have protested for something they care except this injustice or low human rights here.

And I don’t know what is the way out from this situation. My passionate for justice and democracy is dying down. The best method for me to breath and act normally is to pretend that I don’t care. Just living as everything here is fine. Happiness is around the country. Ignorance is a bliss. Screaming as silent as you can.

Their problem

I’ve losen weight about 9 kilograms or 20 pounds since August 2015. I think before eating such as calories calculating. Exercise in both Cardio and weight training are included in my method to reduce weight. I feel healtier. 

Actually, I wasn’t overweight in the past. But 9 kg has given me the new image. The drastic change happens to my face and body. Unfortunately, not my big calves. They are very hard to minimize because theie shapes came from my genetics and I hardly do anything about it.

However, someone talked to my face about it and made me feel less confident wearing short skirts. At first, I felt sorry but then I felt like why did I have to be sad. I am luckier than those who can’t walk by themselves. I shouldn’t be down because of some bad attitudes. And then I recalled seeing this quote from fashion icon, Iris Apfel.

I was never hurt by what anybody said about my clothes, because I dress to please myself. If somebody doesn’t like what I’m wearing, it’s their problem, not mine

Yep, if you don’t like some of my body parts, it’s your problem – not mine.

Tha Maharaj

Tha Maharaj is a recent hang-out space in Bangkok city. It is located on the bank of Chao Phraya River (The main river in Bangkok) where is not far from Wat Phra Kaew (the famous temple for locals and tourists). It has restaurants, cafe, ice cream and cake shops as well as open spaces for people to sit and relax. It opens from 7:00 to 22:00. In my opinion, the best time to visit there is the late afternoon through evening so we can see the sunset across the river. More information: how to go there can be found on its official website.
