“Like music Nowadays we have YouTube. Press listen and it will go up. But in the past, we had to listen to the radio, telephone calls, or TV programs. And we still have to wait for the day the tapes and CDs will be released. When they come out, we have to pay money to come see them and listen to how they are sung, who wrote them, and who arranged them. The cover of the tape is another charm as well.
I still use tape cassettes today. It is considered a rare item. The gimmick is taking a pen or pencil and turning it. It can rewind tapes. Doing this was considered a charm in that era. But now just press pause (Pause).” Mr. Thanachot revealed.

There will be mural paintings called ‘Royal Twelve Months Ceremony’, which the concept of painting is different from the previous period which would be ‘Jataka’ or the life of the Buddha. But in this era, the picture was chosen as the image of the twelve-month royal ceremony.
