On 1 February 2018, H.E. Ambassador Bansarn Bunnag and his spouse, Mrs. Yupadee Bunnag, held a “Kidtung Muang Thai”evening at the Ambassador’s residence to welcome more than 70 guests, which included the former ambassadors of Japan to Thailand and officials from several ministries of Japan including Japanese entrepreneurs.
At the opening speech, the Ambassador expressed that the Royal Thai Embassy held this “Kidtung Muang Thai” evening to remind Japanese friends of the good memories, either work or personal, when living in Thailand as well as their willingness and efforts to further strengthen the relations between Thailand and Japan. The Royal Thai Embassy held this event for us to continue to meet with each other and to further strengthen our close relationship.
H.E. Mr. Akitane Kiuchi, former Ambassador of Japan to Thailand, expressed that impression when he was appointed to work in Thailand 34 years ago. He had an opportunity to give a saxophone, that was made in Japan, to H.M. the late King Bhumibhol Adulyadej, which was a great honor and made him feel very proud.
There was one more special thing at the “Kidtung Muang Thai” evening and that was the Thai classical music which was performed using Thai and western musical instruments. The Royal Thai Embassy received an honor from Prof. Dr. Natchar Pancharoen of the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Chulalongkorn University, Dr. Pimchanok Suwannathada (Saw Duang), Ms. Seesom Eamsunpang (Saw Ou), Dr. Pasinee Sakulsurarat (Thon Rammana) and Dr. Tretip Kamolsiri (Ching), who came from Thailand to perform music on the piano. It increased the atmosphere of missing Thailand even more.
