Firstly, a สวัสดีทุกๆ คนนะค่ะ (sawatdee took took kon na kha)! :p
It’s been a couple months since I stumbled upon thai-blogs and I visit this site practically every day because there are many interesting stories to read from people who share a love of Thailand or anything in relation to it.
I’ll introduce myself. My nickname is Jen, I’m 18 and born to a German father and Thai mother as we’re currently living in England (the math title was a hint). I’ve lived in Germany, the USA, Thailand and more often than not, traveled and moved with my family for most of my life, which, in itself is a slightly complicated story reserved for a rainy day, lol.
Being “well-traveled” as some have put it, I’ve also come across many different but exciting cultures that have opened my eyes to the wider world. I speak German (first) and English fluently, but I’ve also had some of my share of practice in Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese and of course Thai.
But, can you believe that Thai is only my 6th language? Why is it not in the top five? Well, it was just over 18 months ago that my interest in my mother’s culture started peaking. It’s another one of those stories where a Thai marries a Farang, moves to a foreign land and forgets to teach her kids the “Thai” ways because we were to fit into the society we lived in.
But things have changed since the early days and so have I. I’ll conclude my first post by saying thanks to Richard for allowing me to blog here. I think it’ll be a good experience to share with others and hopefully I’ll reveal more in future blog entries.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. ยินดี่ที่ได้รู้จักทุกๆคนค่ะ (Yin dee tee dai roojak took took kon ka) Nice to meet you all 🙂
