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.

Meet our new team member

A few weeks ago, Denise and I decided that we were in need of some new puppets to help do kids ministry. So after a bit of research on google, we decided that we'd attempt to make our own monster glove puppets. A trip to Kad Luang, we managed to source all the odds and ends we needed to make the puppet, it was just a matter of finding some time to create it. So this morning, we thought we'd give it a crack and here's the result. Must say, i'm pretty impressed with the final product. Just need to come up with a good name for him :)

From humble beginnings of being a piece of hairy purple material

to taking form - still trying to work out how to do hair and eyebrows

to trying on various clothes

Here's the team of creators

And finally, here's our newest team member!
