Birthdays


Recommended Posts

One of my disappointments with the culture is the lack of emphasis on birthdays.

You have only one day a year that  is yours..the day you came into the world, but Thais don't make a big deal.

I tried to for a few years with my family, but finally gave up in frustration.  They didn't care.

I was equally surprised - just another example of the culture that we have become part of.

 

 

Pattaya (or at least the bar areas) is different..............an excuse to stick up balloons and have punters/friends staple notes of the realm on you.

The ones that are important are the 12s. Each time the zodiac refreshes the birthday is feted. My SO and I take each other out to dinner on our B-days. But that's it. Besides, once you reach a certain point it becomes: "Oh, isn't it wonderful! You've made it to XX!" Where XX is a very large number.  In reality, life has become something more like slicing a ham blindfolded. You never quite know when you've reached the last piece.

I think it is the complete opposite.........all they do is talk about their b-days
