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.

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.

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.

Happiness is …

During this weekend, I had a quick trip to Sattahip in Chonburi with my co-workers. We would like to go to the beach for our vacation. This beach is called ‘Had Nam Sai’. The sea was so beautiful and the weather was very nice so we really had a great time there.

The bloody sky

This photo was the sunset today here in Bangkok, Thailand on the 4th Day of Coup d’etat.

Bangkok | Thailand | 25 May 2014

I don’t want to write this post in sad tone.

But everything around here is stressful for me since the coup was held on 22 May 2014.

If you ask some Thai people especially those who are middle-classed or elites, you may get the full support for the coup from them.

However, not everyone thinks like that. There are Thai citizens who are opposing to this coup and they go outside to show their opposition.

Right now, it may not be that many. I don’t think the military band will be annoyed by them.

Still, I just read the news that the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) said that they might use the law and power to seize this outcry. NCPO is the name of military group who is now taking control our country.

It reminds me of the time when Thai people was killed by military weapons in the past. And those soldiers or commanders have never been punished.

I’m afraid that this might happen again.

And the sadder thing is that some Thai people cheers for this act of controlling.

It’s too hard for me to comprehend how some people can be such ignorant in this kind of situation.

I don’t know how are we going to survive this terrible cycle again.

How am I suppose to do?

Maybe I need to be ignorant like those peers around me.

But how am I going to do that without breaking my belief since I was younger.

How?
