Finally Happy!

Recommended Posts

I am in Thailand now for almost five years. In the beginning I was afraid and really glad to have someone around me that spoke both Thai as well as English.

I found out that in most cases, it is a wrong choice. In general these people are just money chasers who want only one thing, and that is to undress you financially.

All this time I lived in Chiangrai, I did not know better. Sometimes, when I passed Chiang Rai because I was on my way to Mae Sai, I thought... This is a real dead city.. I never would want to live here.

Until I met my "Girl" here, she worked at the Little Duck doing massage we met through internet. She hardly spoke any English but with hands and feet, expressions and patience we learned to communicate.

She is the first one that did not only "Take" from me but also loves to give. And she gives a lot.

She had/has a small house in the middle of nowhere, it looked like a piggery but it had walls, a roof and windows which is, for most Thai, enough and I promised myself absolutely Not to live here.

We started to visit the house a few times, to meet her family who lives nextdoor, and slowly I saw the beauty of the neighborhood, her land, the possibilities of the house etc. So four months ago we decided to go move to this small house, overhaul it, build some new things etc.

Through the months I started to really love this environment, the family always helping, her two sons who call me Poh already. I can tell you many things... it is so different from the rest of the world.

Now our small house is a beaut. Not finished yet but it will come. We have three pigs, more than 70 chicken, vegetables and fruits. We live like like small farmers with the luxury of everything the land gives us.

Tomorrow we marry for Buddha.

A big party arranged by the neighborhood, they are already busy working for two days. Everything is taken care of. These are the things I really missed in Both Holland as well as Chiang Rai where everyting is build around money.

We would love to invite all of you celebrate this wedding with us to meet my beautiful wife, I love her with all my heart and my soul and I am 100% sure she loves me the same, her family and the surrounding we live in.

We all would be very honoured.

Our address is:

65 Moo 15 Sancharoen

T. Donsila A, Wieng Chai.

Have a great day!

While I don't live in Chiang Rai (under consideration), I don't want to miss a chance to send my best wishes to a man who is deliriously happy (and also because, I'm half Dutch) and getting married tomorrow. All the best to you, your village and your wonderful Thai girl! :)

It sounds like you live on the road 1306. I have wondered around that area a few times on my motorbike and it has a nice remote feel to it.

A nice place to carve out your own little piece of heaven. Welcome to the club. (Happily married for more than ten years and living in the Rai.)

Congratulations, cmjantje.

I won't be able to attend your celebrations but thank you for the invitation. What a nice thing to do!

My wife and I wish you the best and the fullest of futures.

Kaoboi Bebobp, I suspect your wedding will be just a bit cooler than the one being celebrated here. Congratulations to you as well. Maybe one day you'll talk her into making this place home, for both of you. If you do, you and cmjantje will have some common ground to start a friendship on.
