Favorite Memories/Quotes from Thailand (from Matt)

Posted on by mattflagler

Lately I have been consumed of thoughts and memories of our time here in Thailand. I guess that’s normal since this is our last day here. I thought I would write a post of some of my favorite memories of Thailand and fun things I remember about my kids:

  • Elephants walking down the street.
  • Food carts everywhere.
  • Seeing movies and having to stand for the king’s anthem.
  • Thursday night poker games.
  • Eating at Sombats and Que Pasa
  • Our small group
  • Hanging out with the Seaman family, playing Settlers with them, and spending time with their kids.
  • Soi dogs
  • The Black Swan
  • Dome pretending to be a cop:
    • Dome: “Pause Mr. Matt!”
    • Me: “Pause? I think you mean freeze.”
    • Dome: “Oh yeah, freeze Mr. Matt.”
  • Web: “I want to eat Mr. Matt.” “I want to eat chew gum.”
  • Web wanting to tutor with me everyday and never wanting to leave once tutoring was over.
  • Daonua and GiGi fighting over which one loves me more and who can sit in my lap.
  • Questions the kids asked every single time we had show and tell regardless of what was being shown:
  • “How much you pay for it?”
  • “Where you buy?”
  • “What is it’s name?”
  • “Is it a boy or girl?”
  • “What color is it?”
  • Minty treats with Tiffany
  • Kids crying over the dumbest things.
  • Christmas with the Lawsons and skyping with family.
  • Chiang Mai and Krabi
  • Giant spiders, geckos, and lizards in the house.

And so many other things that it would be impossible to mention all of them. Thailand and the kids that I taught have left a lasting impression on me. I am so thankful that God gave us the opportunity to come here and have a small part in the lives of the kids that we taught.
