My Graduation Day in Thailand

Friday Photo Flashback

This is my first time to join the Friday Photo Flashback. I think I'm supposed to only post one picture but all these three pictures were taken on the same day (my graduation day in 1989) so I hope it's okay :).

The King and I! :) I received my diploma (Bachelor of Arts degree) from King Rama IX of Thailand (previously called Siam).
I stood in front of the picture of King Rama V who founded Chulalongkorn University (where I attended).

The gentleman in blue suit is now my husband of almost 18 years. The Love of my life! The one with the blue tie standing next to me is my brother. The other two were friends.

Wow! This is my first time to your blog. I was so amazed to see you handed your deploma by the King himself. Is that a normal occurance? Are you from Thailand?
I am so interested. I will be reading more.
God bless you my sister.

I will answer the above questions here. I was born and grew up in Thailand. I came to America in 1989 after graduating to study for my master's degree at Oregon State University. No, it is not a common occurrence to receive a diploma from the king himself. (As far as I know from the time I lived there), only graduates from Chulalongkorn University (the best/most prominent university in Thailand) have that honor. My husband did not go to school there; he went to share the Gospel with students there (he went on a summer project with Campus Crusade for Christ in 1988 and 1989).

Nice pictures sis.. I am deeply impressed how God truly arranged our life's partner as He has arranged yours. You and your husband must have been together in love for number of years now.

Oh, I love that you posted these pictures. How wonderful that your accomplishment was so recognized that the King himself handed your diploma to me. YOu must have been so proud. (No one has mentioned it, but those gowns/coats are gorgeous!)
