“Nong Gee” turns heads at Koh Samui military conscription

Published

Thai media’s fascination with ‘ladyboys’ continues with Daily News reporting about the military conscription event in Koh Samui and, as usual, getting diverted by the one or two “kathoey” who role up, as required by law, to draw lots to see if they will get conscripted into the national Army.

“Thai men screamed their appreciation as a very attractive lady boy in a beautiful dress presented himself at a military conscription event on Koh Samui,” according to Daily News.

Daily News waxed lyrical describing her as the “Angel of the Island”.

The person grabbing all the attention was 21 year old Ratchasak Rortpayung, aka. “Nong Gee” who is a student at Rangsit University north of Bangkok.

Nong Gee wore a simple printed frock in neutral tones with delicate folds of matching fabric complete with a complementary handbag and a smattering of light bling.

She was deemed to be exempt from military service. She joined many others from 7 sub-districts and 39 villages on Koh Samui at the annual event, one of many held throughout Thailand at this time of year.

Daily News noted that the quota for jobs in the air force and navy were already filled by volunteers but there was a lottery for conscripts to join the Army.
