SUDSAKORN/ สุดสาคร

And for my 55 -:
A classic Thai story in my own words:

Born to a Mermaid Mother
Sudsakorn rides his Dragon Horse
on a quest to find his Father;
a Prince he’s never seen.
The three year old baby
must ride like the wind,
over rivers and mountains;
gliding along magic rainbows.
He must face many tests
on his voyage of discovery,
until he reaches his destination.


  1. Hi Dad; Thanks, lots more, but I only had 55 words.

  2. The Word Veri... for my last comment was agman - I wonder...

  3. I was going to comment on your writing which is very good, however, your hair color experiment was the best.

  4. When I do live story telling we strip a story down to the nine dragon bones, the key images of the story. Then with these clear in your head, you reinvent and retell the story afresh. So well done.

  5. You've done a great job with this retelling.

  6. Hi Buzzard; Summer break here in Thai - all the kids grow their hair or colour it for Songkhran, the water festival.

    Hi John; Had some help with some of the words.

    Hi Anthony; I posted the picture first and people wanted to know the story, and here it is.

    Thank you everyone.

  7. nicely done. hard to fit a longer tale in only 55 words, but you gave us the essence. fun 55.

    my 55 is up!

  8. Hi Brian; Yes, it's a long story.

  9. did perfectly once again.

    Here is my Flash 55 for the week. [scroll down below my Show n Tell feature]

  14. Even if you had to condense it to 55 words, it is a magical story. Thank you, Changnoi.

  15. I wish I had a mermaid Mom! Great job...:)

  16. A lovely tale, Changnoi. Can't believe you were able to condense it to 55 words.
