PHUKET: Mother’s Day kicked off in Phuket this morning with an early morning celebration in honor of HM Queen Sirikit’s 82nd birthday at Sirikit Park on Thalang Road, Phuket Town.

Phuket Governor Maitri Inthusut led the island’s top officials in offering alms to 83 monks.

The governor, vice governors, Phuket’s top cop Commander Krajang Suwannarat and a host of other Phuket officials and local residents were dressed in blue attire for the occasion, the color of HM Queen Sirikit.

After the alms-giving ceremony, Governor Maitri and his wife, Pavinee, attended a ceremony at Satree Phuket School, where they joined well-wishers in signing a congratulatory book for Her Majesty.

Many more events are scheduled today to mark the special birthday and Mother’s Day throughout Phuket (story here). The schedule of remaining events is as follows:
