The house of the oldest citizen in Krabi, 111 year old Pliew Petchpuang, in Plaipraya District, was filled with her children, grand and great children who gathered for the Family Day and Thai New Year.

All of them dressed in Thai traditional outfit and gathered at the house to get blessed by the oldest family member. They usually live in other villages or other provinces and always come together at this time of the year.

Her grand daughter-in-law, Orapin Petchpuang, said that the grandmother was born in 1907 when Thailand was in the reign of King Rama 5 and has lived through the reigns of 5 Kings. Her overall health is excellent. She says her vision is fine, her listening is quite good. She can still communicate with others well and walk without a cane.

She shared her longevity tips and says that her diet is mainly vegetable and chili paste. She barely eat meats and does what she can to remain active.
