Koh Kret Island

Last Sunday, I went to Koh Kret island in the middle of Chao Phraya River. Koh Kret was founded a long time ago by ethnic Mons whose ancestors left Mon Kingdom after their capital was attaked by Along Pa Ya (the King of Burma). The island is famous for Mon-style pottery called "Hai" which is still made on the island today.

I met an old Mon man who can still speak Mon. However, his Mon sounds a bit different to me. Thai influence, I guess.

Too bad I don't have a camera any more. So I can't take any pictures.

By the way, today is Valentine day. I want to wish all of you a happy Valentine day and may you feel God's love today :-)
