August 2019


Monday, 12 August, the birthday of Thailand's Queen Mother is Thailand's Mother's Day. So, August is the month where mothers in Thailand receive "dok mali" flowers (sweet smelling white jasmine) from their children and traditionally enjoy a nice meal, either in a family home or a fancy restaurant. And take pity on the hapless group of foreigners who forget that Monday, 12 August is a very special dining day as they stumble into a favorite Chiang Mai lunch buffet and discover it has been turned into an upscale dining experience at three times the normal price -- just for that day.

Meanwhile, we've been helping mothers and children throughout northern Thailand all year. Please take some time to read about our many service projects, below.
