    Nice to have some Thais in the English section. I do not know enough to go into the Thai language parts of these forums, so am VERY HAPPY to have someone like Phornpailin here

    I am new to this site and havent a clue as to what i am doing. Maybe you can all help me. My husband is Thai born and I want to learn more about his early life if I can. Thought maybe this would help me out.

    Re: I'm new!

    Welcome to the forum. I don't know if this is wat you need, but I sometimes find it helpful to learn about things via novels and movies.

    I posted a little about a book, In The Mirror... over on another thread. http://www.thailandqa.com/forum/show...9575#post79575
    This has stories set in rural then urban Thailand in the late sixties and early seventies, so gives a picture of migration to the cities. Has detailed commentary so it is easy to follow the political implications of the stories. As well as the story I describe on the other thread there are stories about temple fairs becoming commercial events, volunteer workers erecting useless buildings in the country side, people having to work in dangerous and often fatal jobs. It is on Amazon.

    Movies are helpful because you get to see images. And of course some give some insight into growing up in Thailand, perhaps not necessarily the ones you'd think. For example, "Beautiful Boxer" is an entertaining story about a trans-sexual boxer. That might not seem to be what you are looking for, but it includes childhood near Chiang Mai and so includes temple fairs (complete with dancing, boxing, stalls, etc) becoming a novice monk, being harrased by the police, and so on.

    Other movies presumably don't have much to do with your husband's early life but are interesting in their own ways.
    Historical and semi-historical: Suriyothai, Bang Rajan, Nang Naak, Jan Dara.
    Modern: Bangkok Dangerous, Ong Bak, Sia Dai, Mekhong full moon party, Monrak Transistor.

    You can find descriptions of most of those on www.imdb.com. Many are available in the west in art-house video stores. Others I've purchased from www.ethaicd.com.

    Also check out the associated sites such as www.thai-blogs.com for other interesting insights into Thailand.
