Real Men Wear Pink

The King is Awesome. Surattanians love the King. How do you show love for the king? (And you had better or your in big trouble)

Well you can start by having his likeness somewhere in your house when you first walk in. You can also respect your Baht since every piece has his picture on it. Whereever he is (or his lovely queen) do NOT be disrespectful. Do not drop his picture or step on it or be rude. If he comes up in conversation, just smile and don’t say anything. ((Do not talk politics unless you’re ready for it..which is never so just don’t))

But the best way to show your love and respect for Thailand’s favorite guy is to wear PINK! Everyone wears pink. Men and women. And men drive pink mopeds! So all you proud guys who are too macho to rock the pink can finally break down and show your true colors!

In fact, every day is a special color day:

Monday – Yellow
Tuesday – Pink
Wednesday – Green
Thursday – Orange
Friday – Blue
Saturday – Purple/black
Sunday –  Red

Now you don’t have to go around sporting an entire ‘color of the day’ outfit. Most people don’t, but they do have something small to represent it. Sometimes a belt, tie, handkerchief, etc. When I get to, I’ll wear a shirt or skirt of the color.
You will find yellow to be a really popular color here though. Mostly mustard or sunshine yellow.

The king’s color is truly yellow because that was the day he was born on (monday).  But with recent political uprisings, colors are starting to have new meanings. The pro-king colors are yellow, and the not-so-pleased-with-things people wear red. The king is recently associated with pink because he had some health issues and came out of the hospital wearing a pink blazer. This initiated a new fashion trend for pink to support the king’s health.

People associate their ‘lucky’ color with their day of birth (weekday). I was born on a monday so I share the color Yellow with the AMAZING King as my Thai Lucky color.
