Please enjoy our pets but do them no harm, especially by kids not knowing how to behave when playing with animals. Parents please be alert and show them or let us show how to interact with our cute pets. Even our friendliest pet can react angry to protect itself from harm by guests or their children.
service minded, easygoing, not selfish, Buddhist, love to play badminton, soccer, cycling, some Yoga and meditation,watch sepak takraw, enjoy gardening, orchid growing, favoring Asian destinations e.g. Myanmar, Lao PDR and Indonesia as favorites, Cambodia, Vietnam, China also often visited.
Love local village life and can introduce our house guests to key places e.g. Buddhist temple and garden which I take care of together with monks, local health care unit and school.
When I travel I do not need a flat TV set or icy air con in my room. Here in the North our mature garden gives enough shadow and freshness during most months of the year.
