Hard work

Sorry that i haven’t written for a while. Work here is murder! I am quite surprised that i am still alive. Right now i have to work on this 3D model paper due for this friday! I don’t really like the teacher in “Design Foundation” ’cause she treats us like babies. I mean, as IF we don’t know what primary colors are, complementary colors are. What comes after this color…stuff like that. Its annoying and extremely boring too! 4 h of lesson is too much for a KVB way of teaching. Maximum is 2.5 h a day. The rest of the day is up to us!

Anyways, it has been really hot. During the weekend, it was at least 32 degree celcius. Bad news coming out from the tv, about School shooting and stuff. 32Death is a lot in students!

I am in Uni right now and i am freezing my butt here. Just waiting for the 2 oclock class to start. Oh and i was planning to buy a new manual camera! my parents told me that i have to wait for my birthday. My mom tells me that what ever i want, i want it NOW. lol, that is soooo true, but its annoying to wait soooooooooooooo long!!!!!!!! Because i love taking pictures and my mom thinks that i am really good at it, she agrees that i can have a-not-more-then-10,000-bath-manual-digital-camera that way i can being my camera everywhere i want! I love to take pictures.

Cheers,

The Reason Youtube is Banned in Thailand

For those who aren’t sure why Youtube has been banned in Thailand.

No more Lonelygirl15 or peeks at TV bloopers for Web surfers in the Kingdom of Thailand. On Wednesday, Thai telecom authorities blocked video-sharing website YouTube from the country because the site offered a 44-second slide show containing defaced photos of the country’s revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej. In one shot, a pink Afro and red clown nose are painted on his face, while in another a pair of feet dangle above the monarch’s head — a taboo in a country where tradition holds that the King’s image must be positioned higher than those of others. It is not clear when or if Thai access to YouTube will be restored.

Thailand guards very carefully the reputation of its 79-year-old King, who is the world’s longest-serving monarch after six decades on the throne. In late March, a Swiss resident of the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai was sentenced under lese-majeste laws to 10 years’ imprisonment for drunkenly defacing portraits of the King and his wife Queen Sirikit.

Great sensitivity surrounds the image of the king. The Thai monarchy may be best known in the West through the 1956 Hollywood musical The King and I, but the movie was banned in Thailand for historical inaccuracies, as was the 1999 Jodie Foster update Anna and the King. A biography of the Thai royal published last year by Yale University Press was also banned in Thailand. Among other things, the book’s author, Paul Handley, alleges that the King is not convinced of all the merits of Western-style democracy.

But unlike, say, North Korea, where Brillo-haired dictator Kim Jong-il demands obeisance by diktat, the Thai King is genuinely adored by the vast majority of his subjects, who consider him a living Buddha. Every Monday, millions of Thais voluntarily don yellow shirts in honor of their monarch, whose reign is associated with the color. Many cars in Bangkok’s notorious traffic jams sport bumper stickers pledging allegiance to King Bhumibol, and nearly all public events in Thailand begin with a standing moment of respect for the royal. So encompassing is the love for the King and all things associated with him that a 2002 book written by the King about his pet dog — a well-behaved mutt named Thongdaeng with an affinity for coconut juice — was an instant best-seller.

The issue of the King’s reputation extends beyond protecting the sanctity of Thai culture. One of the justifications Thailand’s governing military junta gave for their coup last September against elected Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra were allegations that the ousted leader showed disrespect to the King. Thaksin has denied the charges. Shortly after the coup, the junta members were shown on Thai television in a private audience with the King, an image taken by Thais as an implicit endorsement by the monarch of the change of leadership.

Since then, the military-installed government has assiduously protected the image of Thailand’s King, especially in the run-up to his 80th birthday this coming December, which promises no-holds-barred festivities. But no amount of celebration will hide the fact that the elderly King has been ailing of late — and that his presumed successor, Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, inspires far less adoration from the Thai populace. Nor, it must be admitted, is the Crown Prince’s favorite pet — a poodle named Fu Fu, who on occasion has sat among guests of honor at gala dinners — as beloved as his father’s adopted street dog Thongdaeng. “What happens after the King dies is the question every Thai is wondering but cannot dare to speak aloud,” says a political analyst who prefers his name not to be used because of the sensitive nature of discussing the monarchy. “Our King has held together our nation for 60 years, but many people are worried that the next one will not be able to do so wonderful a job. It is scary to think about.”

I will be writing me more later.

Quote of the day

“Women are like teabags. We don’t know our true strength until we are in hot water!” — Eleanor Roosevelt

Step Up – Ze Movie

Everyone deserves a chance to follow their dreams, but some people only get one shot. Tyler Gage is a rebel from the wrong side of Baltimore’s tracks–and the only thing that stands between him and an unfulfilled life are his dreams of one day making it out of there. Nora is a privileged ballet dancer attending Baltimore’s ultra-elite Maryland School of the Arts–and the only thing standing in the way of her obviously brilliant future is finding a great dance partner for her senior showcase. When trouble with the law lands Tyler with a community service gig at Maryland School of the Arts, he arrives as an angry outsider, until his skills as a gifted street dancer draw Nora’s attention. Now, as sparks fly between them, both on and off stage, Tyler realizes he has just one performance to prove that he can step up to a life far larger than he ever imagined.

They are both the lead of the dance. In my opinion, people who likes hiphop R&B, Ballet, and classical Music all put together, well this is for ya!! Its worth watching it!!!!!!!

Youtube gone!

Hey all,

The ones who live in Thailand, please be informed that Youtube has been banned. Thai people tend to put Illegal rights on Youtube and now the Ministry of Information and Communication has replaced with its own website!

In my opinion, it sucks. People have the right for that, and people just ruin the fun. Things are going too stricked!

Thats all for now.

Cheers,

Ammy.
