Well... well... well, I had to deal with 'New Year' again. I think it sounds great to enjoy new year for four months, but in the mean time I can't keep myself excited about this anymore. So, I went to stay at my mom's house instead of stay home. Of course, Dan was with me all the time. :)
Song Kran Day is from April 13th - 15th every year. For this year, Dan and I went to spend the holiday with my family (to get in touch with them). We went there on April 14th and stayed overnight. Next morning, mom woke up early and made some food for the donation -- Thais belive that they can send love, good wishes, etc. to spirits by passing those feelings through the food which has been prayed upon by monks. Around 9.00 a.m.,everybody went to a temple at Muang Thong (my father was cremated there). Then we went back home.
After luch, my brother, Dan and I discussed about what we were going to do in the afternoon. The most important thing in Songkran Day was playing with water. Finally, we (my brother and his daugther, Dan and I) went to 'KHAO SARN ROAD'. It was amazing down there, a big crowd, ice water fighting, men, women, spaghetti straps, short skirts, bras, belly bottons, crossdressers, beers, and a load of fun.
Dan was 'the man' for our group. He was hit on by all sorts of human and every generation. He was also 'the representative' for us, too. He was shouting 'Sa-Was-Dee-Pee-Mai, Khor-Hai-Tuk-Kon-Mee-Khaum-Suk-Krap (Happy New Year, Best wishes to everyone)' loudly along the way. People were surprised by him because he could speak Thai and even talk to them in Thai. Some of those people, especially the crossdressers, loved to grab his butt and chest (nipple) because they thought that Dan was sooooooo cute.
Before we went back home, we had to walk from Khao sarn road to the main road. We had to pass the 'Din Sau Pong' storm -- Din Sau Pong is chalk powder that will be mixed with a little bit of water to smear on the other's faces in Songkran Day. I was smeared badly.
We took a hot bath immediately after we got home because it was so cold to sit in air-conditioned car when we were wet. I found out that everyone was burnt. Dan was the worst one because I could see his tan (burn) line clearly.
"Ummmmmmmmmmmmm, kiss it make it better, sweetie"
