Welcome to PlaaPlaaPlaa!

So you may be wondering why PlaaPlaaPlaa? What are those strange fish symbols above? What is ปลา and what does it mean? In short, this is a blog site, so surely there's going to be plenty of rambling. Unfortunately BlahBlahBlah was already taken, so I had to settle for the 'Plaa'. But there's actually more to it then just ramblings. The first fish symbol is actually a Christian symbol meaning ICTHUS - a greek acronymn which means "Jesus Christ is God's Son, the Saviour". The other strange letters you see in the last fish is actually the thai word for fish which funnily enough is pronounced "Plaa". So when you put it all together, this site is going to be my ramblings in telling people about how Jesus Christ is God's Son, the Saviour in Thailand (with plenty of good stories about food in between). Happy reading.

fun times

Since getting back from singapore, even though it's still the big 'new year holiday' and lost of people have been away, for some reason all the days still manage to fill up, although, i have managed to find some time to chill out. So what have i been up to? well, i've taken Kim to her graduation, and taken lots of photos for it (graduations over here are just really big. people even have pictures of themselves from the graduation in their wallet to show others), have been on a day trip with some of the teachers and students from school, had dinner with the teachers and students and played Wii. One of the teachers Khruu Nan, was a classic playing Wii boxing. i thought it was pretty amusing that often she had to be physically separated from her opponent. we almost had several 'wiihaveaproblem' moments. Overall, it's been a great time of getting to know people better, having some time out before the year really kicks in again next month. Sunday School has taken a break over the past few weeks, and will be starting up again next month, so i'm taking the opportunity to head to another church in the countryside with my teacher this week to see what church out there is like. Will report back a bit more soon. But in the meantime, here are a few happy snaps of the past week...
