Four Books from Her Royal Highness's Writing Desk
Some readers enjoy reading without enthusiasm to write, while many people are both readers and writers. Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is one of the latter group. Whenever and wherever she pays a visit, upcountry within Thailand or abroad, she always makes a note of every trip she made and gathers all the details together for writing a travelogue, a poem or any other kind of writing.
Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn also collects simple things such as postcards, stickers, boarding passes, dried leaves or flowers she found during her trip, all of which have become the resources for her scrapbook.
"Fuen Phasa, Dai Arharn"
(Refreshing French, recipes are an added bonus)
This is Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's 50th Travel Writing. Her Royal Highness wrote this travel diary during her private visit to the Republic of France from 14 to 30 August 2007 when she joined in the French Refresher Course at Touraine Institute in Tour, Republic of France.
"Pa Pid Phichit Warn"
(Her Royal Highness's Scrapbook)
In December 2009, The Queen Savang Vadhana Foundation published Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's Scrapbook - "Pa Pid Phichit Warn" as the 2010 Diary. This special Diary was made in the "Scrapbook" style which incorporates Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's collectibles such as stamps, stickers, drawings and photographs from her trips.
Later on, the Queen Savang Vadhana Foundation published the new version of this publication, now as the perpetual notebook, also under the same name "Pa Pid Phichit Warn"
This book is the collected works of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's Photographs displayed in the Photo Exhibition : "DESTINATIONS" at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre from 10 December 2009 to 17 January 2010. Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn took these photographs from various places ; around her residence, upcountry in Thailand and overseas. Her Preface projects how the name of the Exhibition derived :
"Lately I have been traveling more frequently, both overseas to foreign lands nad domestically within Thailand. Sometimes I do not make it to all my destinations as plannned. On some days, the weather was not conducive for traveling, the car broke down or there were other obstacles blocking my intended path.
These events are unforeseeable, but I believe that if we continue to steadfastly take each step with conviction, when we will eventually reach where we wish to go. This is to express it concretely. In a more abstract term, its means our expectations and success. The photographs in this exhibition were taken during my travels overseas and within Thailand, including those taken as I walked around my house.
Even though I have circled my house hundreds and hundreds of times, something new always awaits me..."
