    New Year’s Cartoon from Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn

    New Year’s Cartoon from Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn
    February 3, 2013

    From Komchadleuk, December 31, 2012

    Cartoon and verse by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn

    The card reads:

    2013 New Year Card.

    The verse reads:

    This year is a year of small snake.

    If you learn something, do it like you mean it, and don’t just do it ‘ngoo ngoo, plaa plaa’.

    And then you’ll be fine all year long.

    Ancient masters preached that whatever you study from your guru or learn by yourself, you should be proficient in such subjects.

    If you learn and know something superficially, it’s called ‘know it ngoo ngoo, plaa plaa’.

    Maseng is the year of snake, so only bring the snake (ngoo), and not the fish (plaa) so that you really learn some knowledge.

    [In Thai, there is a saying knowing something "Ngoo ngoo, plaa plaa". 'Ngoo' is snake, while 'plaa' is fish. Together, the phrase mean to know something superficially. HRH Princess Sirindhorn uses the phrase because this year is the year of a small snake.]

    Don't care what anyone says, I love her! She is always doing her royal duties, always caries a notebook where she will put in some lines of what she has seen and how it can maybe approve the Thai. I have nothing but respect for her!

    She is loved by many in Thailand and she does have my full respect. I think a few may fear that notebook as I am sure she has asked more than once to be shown the results of a project they said they were doing on a previous visit.
