Challenge #2 - Where's Pookie

Clue: it's near the river. NAME OF HOTEL OR DEVELOPMENT THIS IS TAKEN FROM.

I know it's Bangers again. But I can only pick from images I've already got. I have a no.3 that nobody will get held in reserve.

Further afield, and perhaps trickier (but I suspect not)

 Haha! Sadly I am a long way from home and access to my laptop, where my photos are stored. I have just checked what I have on the device I am using and there isn't really anything I can use at. part from identifying my still, as yet, unfinished garden.

Sorry Pookie! I used words that are colloquial - not easy for a non-English speaker! I should have been clearer! Jivvy kindly explained!

Caller can't post a picture - he is in the same position as me regarding Korat. Can I ask Robert if he is able to post a picture? I think we have a lot of members able to post tricky pictures!

This topic may be mine, Thanks  :D
1st pict : Now , my shop has a space for a little talk and a cup of coffee.   
2nd pict : My shop join HALF-HALF project. 10M Thai citizens who applied to join this project , will get 3000 baht and spend in shops which join HALF-HALF project , 23 Oct until 31 Dec.
3rd pict : I have toasted bread in regular and draw/paint toasted bread. 

* Due to I asked K-F members about toasted bread with only sugar, then I made caramel from watching youtube. I can't finish it so I think to do something to finish the caramel sauce. I used it drawing simple picture on bread.  ;D

Wheres Pookie?    Not our Pookie fortunately, but I notice in the BP that another Pookie is about to go to the slammer for 38 years.  She was apparently a well known pop singer, but the song that apparently made her name was her version of "sha la la la la.....", which was seriously dreadful.
Title: Re: Where's Pookie?
Post by: waterheart on November 05, 2020, 06:21:06 PM
I got the short name Pook when I was born. Due to it was nickname of Miss Universe , Apasara Hongsakula.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apasra_Hongsakula

Many Thai girls were born in that period , given name Pook , me too.... ;D
I seemed not like this name because there were 2-3 Pook in same classroom such as Kindergarten , high school and University. mm... And someone called her/his dog that Pook/Pookie.

The singer Pookie was very famous with song Sha la la ....
https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1697300/singer-pookie-arrested-for-drug-trafficking

I worked in an office in Bangkok with foreigners. They also called me Pook.
But I became a tour guide working with foreigners and Thai people. So Pook was too short and misunderstood. Then I used Pookie , easy to remember and call.     

Fortunately , Miss Thailand 2010 has nickname Pook Look.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fonthip_Watcharatrakul

Then someone likes to call me as Pookie , Pukluk , Pukpik , Kii , Kiki.... No problem , It's me  ;D

MM.... Let's continue about my name.
I was a tour guide for Japanese tourists. I introduced my name Pookie.....
They didn't smile or responded as western tourists.
Then I said that Pocky  ;D ... They were laugh and all did repeat the name.
All Japanese people knows Pocky , biscuit. I loved it too.

Very good film Pookie. So many people!

So much form filling -  the Thai way. I wonder what they do with it all?

How long did it take from start to finish?

Pookie, I've made most money from my pictures of silk weaving - not the actual weaving, but a process called warping which is before the actual weaving. This kind of industrial picture seems very popular.

You might find pictures of ordinary life in Thailand are popular also - street markets, ordinary life. Be careful to exclude brands - this is always a problem - and the faces of people.
