Pray for Thailand

Worst floods in a half-century in Thailand.

As I told you yesterday, I concern about flooding in Thailand.

The worst floods in a half-century have submerged entire towns across Thailand’s central plains, devastating rice crops and halting hundreds of factories.

See more what happened here and let's pray for Thailand. I'm sure, we'll be ok soon.


Bangkok Flooding Situation

I haven't posted as usual this month cause there's big flooding in Thailand for almost a month. Now I'm so busy (moving almost everything in my house from 1st fl. to 2nd fl.)  and concern about Bangkok flooding so much.

I thought foreigners who're in Bangkok also concern about Bangkok flooding like me. Many of you don't know Thai language so I'd like you to download Thai flood help list app at App Store here.

This app is so useful for you.

This app will pull contact/service data from the server every time you open the app, and you can also reload it anytime, to ensure that you have the latest contacts at your finger tip.

You can tap the number to dial right away, and also can make SMS donation using pre-defined format write away.
