Something OLD, Something NEW, Something BORROWED, Something BLUE

From left to right: P Am, P Penn, P Wep, P Nid, P Three and P Sakon

Recently we attended our first wedding in Thailand. We were so excited to be able to be a part of celebrating P Wep and P Nid’s marriage.  Although they are both originally from Karen villages, they chose to have a city wedding.

P Wep has been so kind to us.  He was one of the men that helped us to move in to our current house and  P Nid was one of the first people I got to know at ZOE Children's Homes.  She had spent some time living with a family in Australia and so our accents were never a problem to her.  She also has very good English herself and, besides being an extraordinary cook at ZOE, she is also a fantastic translator. 

PS.  I must explain, we’d come straight from the Juniper Tree where we did not have our Sunday best clothes, so please excuse our more ‘casual’ look!  

I think I was the “something blue” LOL!
