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 ....

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.

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.

Dear All,
Sorry for no showing long time :)
I've got busy about HALF-HALF and Raochana. I and mother were lucky get some earning from Government.
And I was enjoy making some Thai dessert. Some friends were kindly ask for orders.
They're not much sweet , it's like snack and cute.
Maybe Korat Farang or family's members would like to try them.  ;D

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?

I walked in Central at 8:30 and walked out at 11:38 , so it took 3 hours.
(Check time from photos I took)  ;)

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.
