Big congrats to Philip; a Thai boy raised in Sweden, with a melting smile from #TeamLukkade

Social Media goes Black and White in respect of King Rama IX 

With the royal funeral for Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej just over a week away, many Thai people have made their Facebook profile pictures, and social media pages, black and white. This is to express their sadness and is a mark of respect to the late King who passed away on October 13 last year.

Videos and photos of the King have been posted and shared in many places, music that the King has composed played in malls, and other places, throughout Thailand. Media has been toning down heated topics and colourful content during this period, described as one of the saddest events in Thai history. While not much will be happening in terms of concerts and events this month, it is a fascinating time to see another part of Thailand’s culture.

The cremation for King Bhumibol Adulyadej starts on the 25th - 29th, with the official cremation on the 26th.
