His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej's Birthday 2013

Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej celebrates his 86th birthday today.

This celebration is also referred to as Thai Father's day since 
the King is the symbolic father of Thailand. 
The King and Queen are revered for they generosity and caring for the Thai people. 
There are numerous royal projects aimed at improving the life and health of 
the Thai people. A list of their accomplishments is long and impressive.

Having taken the throne in 1946, King Bhumibol is now the world's longest reigning monarch 
and the world's longest serving head of state. 

I'm great to be Thai. I love our King. I will do for King.
Many people ask "why do Thai people love their king so much?"
The reason came from what I have seen from my childhood days until now, 
of what this king has done for his people and country.....

Long Live The King _/|\_

I would like to share you, the article which wrote by Ravi Supasiri.

I feel like this article speaks the same as what my heart want to tell.

You have walked Over all this land
You have touched Every heart and hand
You have seen A greater plan
Given your all So that we can stand
You give rain From a cloudless sky
You give strength When you hear our cry
You have faith That we will try
To be the best So this nation can rise

A thousand choices But we choose one
Ten thousand voices That become one

One in Harmony All in Unity
Together we will give you Love Eternally
One in Harmony All in Unity
Together we will give you Love Eternally

In every heart And in every home
In every place You are the light and hope
You are the shelter And when the storm has gone
Our inspiration So that we can carry on

A thousand choices But we choose one
Ten thousand voices That become one

One in Harmony All in Unity
Together we will give you Love Eternally
One in Harmony All in Unity
Together we will give you Love Eternally

You are the father You are the soul
Making this Nation whole Together we give you
Love Eternally
