PHUKET: Plaipraya District Chief Paisarn Srithep visited the oldest living person in Krabi on June 21 and was delighted, and surprised, to find her in good health.
Pliaw Petchpuang, 109, was born in 1907.
“We were surprised to find that Ms Pliaw is in great health, able to walk unassisted, and indeed busy,” said Mr Paisarn.
Ms Pliaw stays with her children and grandchildren. During the day, she prefers to clean the house rather than sleep.
She has no medical dietary restrictions, but avoids all kinds of meat. Her favorite food is vegetables with Thai-style salad and fish.
“She also showed us her ID card, which confirms that she was born in the era of King Rama V. It is astounding that she has lived through the reign of five Thai Kings. Her hearing and vision are both strong, and she has no serious medical issues. She is a great inspiration for us all,” said Mr Paisarn.
