Ambassador’s Message

August 2019

 

Dear readers,

August is a month of tender loving care, as all Thais explicitly show, more so than they already do in their daily life, the love and respect for their mothers on Mother’s Day, which falls on 12 August. More importantly and auspiciously, 12 August is the Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother. Throughout Thailand, Thai people will express their deepest respect and loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen Mother for Her gentle spirit, gracious characteristics, hard work, and tireless efforts, working continuously and devotedly alongside His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej to ensure that Their subjects throughout the country live better.  On this occasion, the Royal Thai Embassy will organise a merit making ceremony at Wat Buddhapadipa Temple in Wimbledon, London, for people to make offerings to the monks.  Also, the Embassy will arrange a book signing at the Consular Section of the Embassy during 5-19 August 2019 for people to pay homage to Her Majesty the Queen Mother.

In the past month, we reached a record high temperature on a number of days, with extreme heat coupled with some showers.  The weather has been fluctuating.  I hope that everyone keeps fit and stays healthy, particularly young children as they have to get ready for the start of a new school term.  I hope that all of you have made the most out of the summer holidays, enjoying it while it lasts, and feeling full charged and ready for the challenges ahead.

With love and care extended to the Thai community as always, the Royal Thai Embassy once again is organising a mobile consular service at Wat Mahathat Kings Bromley in Staffordshire during 24 - 25 August 2019.  Every time, the Embassy team has received a very warm welcome from the Thai community, for which we are most grateful.  Whatever the weather, the Embassy team is always ready to look after the Thai communities in different parts of the UK and in Ireland.   

Till we meet again next month.
