FROM THAILAND WITH LOVE! (APRIL 2020)
We live in a difficult time in which some extra love is welcome! That is why we started our From Thailand with LOVE campaign in April. We asked our Thai friends and relations to write a text from the heart. This with the goal to show how super sweet the Thai people are and to spupport the hospitality industry in this amazingly beautiful country. Since our very first visit to the land of smiles we have been totally in LOVE with Thailand and the Thai!
Hopefully we and many others can return to amazing Thailand soon.
For now, be good for yourself and to each other!
“And, in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.” – Paul McCartney

From Secret Retreats with LOVE!
Exactly one week ago it was Songkran Day in Thailand, our New Year, a time for family and friends, a time to pay respects to our elders and our most vibrant and fun festival of the year where we also splash water over each other as a symbol of purification. Sadly there were no celebrations in Thailand this year. While the world has come to a standstill and travellers no longer come to our shores we still keep our smiles, even though they are behind a mask today, and we all look forward to the day when we can all meet up again, with family, with friends and with new friends visiting Thailand from overseas. All the properties from Secret Retreats are preparing for the day of your return where a warm welcome to experience Thai hospitality awaits your return once we can move out of this crisis. May we take this opportunity to wish the whole world to heal, stay safe, stay healthy and come back to visit us all soon. ----- All the good from the whole team of Secret Retreats -----Show some love
From Lanta Animal Welfare with LOVE!
Hi all, A small hello from Lanta Animal Welfare on Koh Lanta. Important Notice The clinic will remain open as normal Mon – Sat including the emergency out of hours service. Our catchers are still going around on the Island to catch un-sterilized and injured/sick animals. And giving out food to strays as most hotels, restaurants are now closed. We are now a skeleton team, which is divided into two shifts, with strict distancing. We still do our best to take care of the 100 animals we have here both with feeding, care, socializing and training. If anyone has some love and money to spare to help the animals would be very grateful. These are worrying times. As an organisation we have a duty of care to our staff, volunteers, the animals, and visitors to the center. Our volunteer numbers have already declined by 95% and our current helpers are leaving over the coming weeks to re-join family across the world. We understand their decision and support it whole heartedly. Unfortunately, this means as a much smaller team, we have to prioritize the well being of our rescue animals. Without visitors we will struggle financially, however public health and animal care is top priority. We will now be solely focusing on the daily, weekly and monthly tasks for our animals. If anyone has some love and money to spare to help the animals would be very grateful. ❤️ https://lantaanimalwelfare.com/donate/ ❤️ Kind Regards, ----- Junie Kovacs (Founder) and the whole Lanta Animal Welfare team -----Show some love

From Supanniga Eating Room with LOVE!
*** I do not want to believe that I have the love of writing for a long time - I wrote this article since April 7, 2011 - 9 years ago when I was 32 years old *** Khon Kaen Is one of the provinces in the northeastern part of Thailand which is not popular as a tourist destination. Most of visitors are businessmen, civil servants, or company employees who came to work or business. Most people don’t know that Khon Kaen is a province with various tourist attractions for travelers who expect to find something that is not mainstream and find themost local experiences of Thai Isan people in way of life. If talking about Khon Kaen's well-known tourist spots, the places that need to be mentioned are Phu Wiang Dinosaur Museum, Ubonrat Dam (Bang Saen 2 / Pattaya 2), King Cobra Village, Wat Phra That Kham Kaen, or famous dishes such as Khao Suan Kwang Grilled Chicken and Spicy Papaya Salad (Somtum), the northeastern Thai original recipes. I believe in simplicity and it comes to looking at things in real and natural way. I look the every beauty in the way it is and its authenticity. This makes Khon Kaen one of the very charming destination. One day I found a new route from Khon Kaen city center to Ubonrat Dam. Usually, if tourists travel to Ubonrat district, they will go through the main Mitraphap Road then turn left for another 20 kilometers to the dam and Nam Phong National Park. This new route Is the way to the Ubonrat Dam by going north along Maliwan Road, going to Phu Wiang, then there will be a 37 kilometers before turn right at intersection then you can also reach the dam. This route is more scenic, beautiful, and more pleasant than the first route mentioned. Since it is not the major road that everyone takes , it is a path that passes through various small villages with are surrounded by the green and yellow rice fields on both sides. The fields are harvested this season and there are some off-season plots that reveal a small piece of green rice. And it's now the destination for me to stay still and experience the true nature for the rest of my afternoon today. I have prepared picnic set in my car trunk and ready to find a place to stop by and picnicking in the middle of the rice field. I found a place about 2 kms before you reach Baan Kaeng village. I parked the car on the roadside as I found a little shed (A farmers' resting terrace in the middle of the rice field) which seems to be easy to stroll in. The other side of the road Is a lake which is expected to be a part of the dam. The beauty of Thailand's northeastern fields made our beautiful late afternoon. The sun is not too hot, making this picnic was a memorable experience of Khon Kaen with my friends and family. to enjoy myself, it doesn't have to be anything or anywhere too difficult, but something that is simple and easy to find. ----- From Thailand with Love by Thanaurek Laoraowirodge - Supanniga Group - Local Thai, Global Favorites -----Show some love
From Empty Plates Bangkok with LOVE!
We all are sailing through uncharted waters with this global pandemic going on. We are instructed to stay home and to keep social distancing. Many local people are on the street or close to it, due to losing their jobs or just simply not making enough money. It hurts, especially seeing it up close in my community where I live for over 10 years. I wished I could help more significantly, Empty Plates is a small private chefs table, run by one person. The resources I have are limited but once a week I cook and distribute free meals to my close by community. Last week I’ve made a yellow chicken curry, with braised vegetables and organic rice. This week its green curry spaghetti with crispy pork. Let’s do what we can to help each other out & I’m looking forward to welcome some of you from the Netherlands in the future at Empty Plates Bangkok. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy my friends :) ----- Steven John (Empty Plates Bangkok) -----Show some love
From U-Nimman Hotel Chiang Mai with LOVE!
From the U-Nimman Hotel Chiangmai team to everybody, The current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact all, including our hotel. We made the difficult decision to temporarily close the hotel to protect the health and safety of all our visitors and colleagues, but we hope to be able to re-open soon. At this time, we would like to begin by thanking all the healthcare workers who have been working on the frontline to treat patients from the start of the outbreak until now. We greatly appreciate the hard work and efforts of all the doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers who put their own physical and mental health at risk to help keep us safe. We would also like to say a big thank you to everyone in Chiang Mai who have all taken the local authority restrictions seriously, and for their continued efforts and dedication to keeping our community safe during this challenging time. This hard work means that our community has achieved a perfect result with no new cases for more than 21 days up until today. We would like to encourage everyone to still use masks (where you must and can), wash your hands frequently and practice social distancing by staying home, avoiding crowds and non-essential travel during this time until we are completely through this pandemic. We hope to see U again soon on the coolest and chicest street in Chiang Mai, Nimmanhaemin Road. Until then, take care and stay safe. <3, ----- The U Nimman Chiang Mai crew -----Show some love
