    One million Baht Sinsot.

    A million baht dowry and a hundred foreign guests as gay British tour boss ties the knot with Thai man


    Picture: Thai Rath

    KAMPHAENG PHET: -- There was a big wedding yesterday in Kamphaeng Phet when a British tour company boss married his Thai sweetheart, a restaurant manager in Silom.

    The dowry was 1,000,000 baht plus 20 baht in gold (worth about400,000) and a one carat diamond ring, reported Thai Rath.


    Picture: Thai Rath

    Some 100 British guests flew in to celebrate the nuptials of Mr Chris Lee, 47, and Samruay Sothin, 33.

    It was a spectacular affair with Mr Lee's friend Tawatchai Aranyik, a former head of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, as main guest.

    Many of the participants added to the flavor of the traditional wedding by wearing Thai costumes for the occasion.

    Mr Lee - boss of Chris Travel - met Samruay - manager of the "Telephone" restaurant - in Kanchanaburi some years back. After a whirlwind romance and many visits to each other's homes they decided to do the right thing.

    Yesterday in Soi Wang Thong Luang there was the traditional procession of "Hae Khan Mark" before Mr Lee arrived at the house to go on his knees and officially ask for Samruay's hand in marriage.

    TAT man Tawatchai handed over the diamond ring and the dowry was received by Samruay's happy parents Jet, 60, and Samrerng, 57.

    The happy couple plan a further wedding in Britain in May.
    I'm all choked up.

    Sinsot threads...always epic.

    Combine that with teakdoor poster's seemingly endless fascination for backdoor hijinks and how can this miss?

    Only $1,000,000?

    The man got a real deal

    (In theory, FWIW, wasn't Sin Sod supposed to be for a woman's financial future, if the relationship went sour? Fewer job opportunities in the past, etc., etc. If the bride is a guy, then can't he get a job to support himself? But I'm sure this wasn't a money grab )

    Don't the olds all look made up?

    The old man on the left in that last picture? He's obviously looked at the bride's father and realised dressing up as a transexual goblin wasn't actually obligatory.

    Yeah, it's not fair that gay's seem to be the butt of most jokes on here. Pun intended.

    I could care less that the couple is gay. For me it would be the same as a middle aged woman -with several kids- receiving one million baht sin sod from a foreigner.

    I'm sure a Thai guy would also pay that

    Baht, not dollars. And no, Sin Sot is not for the "brides" future. It's for her past, a way to compensate the parents for the cost of her upbringing and education. Normally the parents return it to the happy couple but it doesn't belong just to the bride. It becomes Sin Somros and belongs to both equally, unlike Sin Suan Tua, assets acquired before marriage, which remains personal property no matter what. B100,000 is not particularly high, considering.

    Maybe. But more simply I would suggest "the farang" is the correct answer.
