Woman Thanks Statue In Remarkable Fashion

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Woman Thanks Statue In Remarkable Fashion

Post by wackyjacky » Sat Feb 21, 2015 11:08 am

"A woman offered 300 severed pig heads on platters to a Buddha statue in western Bangkok yesterday to mark the Year of Goat and thank it for spiritual help with a defaulted loan. http://bangkok.coconuts.co//2015/02/20/ ... -pig-heads" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Sombat Lekpiam, 59, a Rachaburi fruit merchant, traveled with her family to Wat Bang Phra in Nakhon Pathom with two pickup trucks loaded with pig heads to make good on a promise she made to the statue six years ago.
At that time she had promised the Buddha image she would present it the 300 heads if a debtor would return THB2 million to her.
After the ceremony, Sombat donated the pig heads to several temples, Thairath reported."

I think I'm in love with this woman. I'll have dreams about finding the 300 headless pigs and turning them into a lifetime supply of bacon. Image Image
