I don’t know who the original singers or writers of the song below are. I just vaguely remembered it from a TV commercial in the 90′s (or was it the 80′s?). I was still a child then but its lyrics came to mind when I was going through the pictures from my recent trip to Krabi. Recent is use very loosely here. But anyhow, the words of the song just sums up everything I love about traveling in first place.
This post is dedicated to the everyday folks in Krabi who welcomed every visitor to the land of smiles with their big hearts, big cheers and big smiles. They even made all our bellies smiled happily too.
Thank you or should I say ?????????? [khop-kun-khráp]
A smile is quite a funny thing,
It lightens up your face,
And when it’s gone you never find
Its secret hiding place.
But far more wonderful it is,
To see what smiles can do.
You smile at me, I smile at you,
And so one smile makes two.
She smiles at someone, since I smiled,
And then that one smiles back,
And that one smiles until, in truth,
You fail in keeping track.
And since a smile can do great good,
By cheering hearts of care.
Let’s smile and not forget the fact
That smiles go everywhere
It isn’t hard to do,
Smile from your heart,
And the world smiles with you.
