A tribute to HM the King on the gate of a private home in the back streets of Chiang Mai. November 2016.
Today marks 50 days since the passing of HM The King of Thailand Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), the world's longest serving monarch and a shining example to the Thai people. The coming long weekend also honors his legacy, what would have been his 89th birthday on December 5th a national public holiday. Daily reminders of the heartfelt grief for the late king are ever present still, even as his son takes his place, annointed King Rama X this week. We take a moment now to share our collection of photos representing these daily reminders with you. From public tributes to shopping experiences, commuting, media both traditional and modern...

I don't know much about this person but I guess he is really a good leader. I can see that people really love him and they adore him so much as well. I can see that this King has a very strong personality. I can say that he is a clever one as well. Well, I will do some research about him if I have extra time. I am really in awe of this King!

This is the most heartbreaking tragedy for the people of Thailand. He's the most qualified leader that Thailand ever had. His legacy will forever live on the hearts of the Thai's for he is a humane, passionate and an intelligent leader. I'm pretty sure Bumibol Adulyadej left with a peaceful state of mind and heart because he's done everything for the people of Thailand. I salute him as a father and as a leader of Thailand.

This is the third in a series of articles intended for those who already think they know what Bitcoin is, but haven't yet traded in it. I was there - I thought I comprehended it, too, but having since dipped my toe in the pond, I've discovered an unexpectedly enlightening experience. There are so many nuances involved in the trading of Bitcoin as to make it tremendously educational.

Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.
