enTWINed – Ch 5 & 6 (A Thai Fanfic)

We now begin Sri’s entrance into international fashion. It’s just a small showcase, what could go wrong?

NOTE: I have included some photographs at the end of the  post to better explain the descriptions of the outfits worn during the showcase.

Chapter 5

The runway was a gray slash cutting through the throngs awaiting the fashion show. Klieg lights lined the walls, waiting to spotlight the stage. Outside on the balcony, refreshments were arranged on tiers of white-covered tables. People milled around, alternately admiring and envying each other. The chairs at the VIP section as well as the stands at the far end of the catwalk were gradually filling with the chattering crowd. Read the rest of this entry

enTWINed – Ch 1 & 2 (A Thai fanfic)

Here it is, the first installment of what I hope is an enjoyable read. kens-face-when-he-reads-my-fanfic

Chapter 1

The liveried bellhop quickly ran to the curb as the elegant gray limousine pulled to a smooth stop in front of the Hilton Diagonal Mar in Barcelona. The man that stepped out exuded an aura of power and confidence. Dressed in a tailored double-breasted suit of dark gray, he gave a nod as the hotel employee retrieved two pieces of matched luggage.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Pisamai Wilaisak

In the flash and excitement of watching mainstream actors play our favorite couples, sometimes those in the background are not noticed. As the elders, the police, the doctors, and other, these unsung heroes deserve our attention as well!

This time, I wanted to shed some light on my favorite lakorn elder, Pisamai Wilaisak (พิศมัย วิไลศักดิ์).

Deja View III: More Familiar Locations!

Yok Lai Mek - Kat's biological father's house

This is from Yok Lai Mek in 2009. It’s the only time I’ve seen it.

This is an list that includes some older lakorn sites such as condos and garden houses, but also the new Majestic Mansions to add to the White or the Brown/Yellow list.  I’m sure some of these newer locations will be popping up in future lakorns! Read the rest of this entry

Deja View II – Brown / Yellow Lakorn Houses

This time, I’m going to delve into a myriad of brown / yellow houses used for Lakorns. The orange-roofed yellow house used for Suparburoot Chutathep appears to have been used only for this 50-episode series, but others should appear more familiar.

Has it really only been in one lakorn??

Deja View: Lakorn Locations with White Houses

2016 UPDATE: I have consolidated all my lakorn houses into one place: “Lakorn Locations” on my status bar on the top of my page. Or you can just click [here]. It now includes residences, business and natural areas.  Enjoy!

~~~~~~~

Ah, there’s nothing like a palatial white house, with a huge columned port chochere, a sweeping staircase, and a beautiful fountain just outside the double-door front entrance. Sound familiar? It describes the majority of locations for filming in Thailand. 

Samee (front of main house)

This one was used in Punya Chon Kon Krua (2012) and Samee (2013). The big bronze bull is the giveaway.

For those of use who are avid lakorn watchers, it sometimes becomes confusing when you are watching several shows that appear to be filmed in the same location. Here’s seven of the ones I found in duplicate. For most of these, I don’t know the exact location of these properties, or if they are public or private buildings.

Feel free to let me know if I’ve missed any lakorns associated with these locations!

Thanks, Shuk.

Ngao Jai เงาใจ (Shadows Of The Heart) A Redirect Post

Hello my faithful readers!  Feel free to beat me over the head!  After all, I’m taking on yet another recapping project, which will probably slow my Winter Sonata and Lah Ruk Sut Kop Fah recaps even more than they are now (if that is even possible).

Full House Thailand – A Redirect Post

Now, I know I said I’d take a hiatus from recapping currently-running shows. And with a few guest post bombs here and there, I’ve stuck with it. But then I watched the first episode of Full House, the Thailand version, I fell into it like Alice down the rabbit hole. A production by True Visions Asia, it is much more like the manhwa it is based on, than the traditional slap-slap-kiss revenge lakhorn that your normally find in Thai dramas. The lead couple is adorable, the settings are pretty, and the show is moving along nicely.

As with all my recaps of current shows, the posts are being hosted by our gracious kakashi. Uri JoAnne unni is also onboard, reuniting us as a team yet again!  Ten episodes have already been released, so it’s going to take a while to catch up.  Just consider it a labor of madness love.

March 20th:  Completed!  Yay.  Wait!  Completed! [sobs]
