    Re: The Emu story-Building a Home in Thailand (PHOTOS & VIDS)

    I have finally given in to twitter. Should have done it earlier I suppose.

    Princess was married a few weeks ago. My wife had a written contract with the new husbands mother, for at least a year, to marry her and pay a sinsod of 100 000 baht, and one baht weight of gold. As the date expired, and the promise was not realised, the relevant parties had a meeting with the village head man and orbitor, or 2ic.
    The mother complained that she didn't have the money, but said she would ask her daughters in Bangkok to help out.
    At the meeting next day, she offered a very small parcel of land she owned, 1 ngaan, and although very low, this was accepted. However, overnight one of her daughters produced the money to retain the land.

    Khoon set the wedding for three days time to seal the deal. We took Princess and boyfriend to a wedding shop in Phu Sing to select outfits, and on the wedding day, we had to be there again for dressing and makeup at 4AM. Wow, Princess was absolutely stunning. This guy is Pooklooks dad, and the couple have been together almost four years now.

    On the day, the dowry presented was 110 000 baht, and no gold. Family reps came to be present, but not the mother. Things are still now very bitter between the two families, and his mother has disowned the boy.

    Pooklook also is looking very beautiful. A few photos.

    Congratulations to the newly-weds! Had been wondering what's keeping them from marrying, since they seemed to be in good terms as a couple. And now the boy's mother has disowned him. If it's not too personal, is she against the marriage, perhaps for financial reasons? If you choose not to answer, it's OK.

    By the way, how's Pooklook? Can she walk now?

    Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction.

    Marie, my impression is that she thought that we might lessen the amount, or that maybe the son should have earned the money.
    I had offered earlier to "front" the money so that the wedding would go ahead, but my wife was all over the situation.

    Pooklook can walk and run with only the slightest favouring of the left leg. If you didn't know, you wouldn't notice. During the big operation, they loosened the restriction on that leg, and it is possibly as strong as the other.
    She has put on a half kilo this last year, and thinks she is a big girl now. She's saying "grandpa doo" (look).

    She started school this year, (kindie) and enjoys it.

    Wow, I can see she walks and runs like any normal girl. The doctors have done a splendid job on her!
