Soon the rains will end, the clouds will clear up, and the sun will emerge again in all its radiant glory. Speaking of radiance, for many women here in Thailand, that means it’s time to dust off the old running shoes and hit the treadmill, because it’s nearly swimsuit season. But, while looking good in a bikini may provide ample incentive to get in shape, for adult women there is an even more important reason to exercise.
One of my favorite things about living in Thailand is the cultural diversity you get to experience. Between the Thai, Buddhist, Chinese and international event calendars it’s sometimes feels like every other day is a holiday here in Bangkok.
Mother’s day, which here in Thailand is set to coincide with HM the Queen’s birthday, is coming up next week on the 12th of August. Since the government has decreed that Monday the 11th will be a public holiday as well, this year makes for the perfect opportunity to surprise your mom with a fun activity gift from Pickaboo, the smile maker.
