To commemorate the 110th anniversary of the late Princess Mother on Oct 21, the Mae Fah Luang Foundation and Thai Beverage are holding the 14th "Kid Tueng Somdet Ya (We Miss Somdet Ya)" photo exhibition at the Grand Hall, 1st floor of Siam Discovery from Oct 16-25. Focusing on the theme "Home", the exhibition is divided into five zones to present a series of photographs that depict different periods of her life from her childhood to education, love and family and her great works for the Thai people. - The "Childhood Home" zone portrays her simple life in her family house located within the Anongkaram Temple community where she lived happily with her father, Chua, and her mother, Kam. - The "Home in the Wide World" zone features several places - both in Thailand and overseas - where she stayed during her years of education. - The "Family Home" zone sees the first house in her married life - a flat in Boston, USA; and then a house in London; Sa Pathum Palace in Thailand; a flat in Lausanne, Switzerland; and finally the Villa Vadhana in Pully, Lausanne. - The "Work Home" zone shows many of the temporary accommodations in different locations where she worked for the better quality of life of the people throughout her life. - The "From Big House in Small Woods to Small House in Big Woods" zone exhibits a house built on a piece of land in Chiang Rai she rented from the Department of Forestry for three decades. This is where she began her 30-year land improvement known as the Doi Tung Development Project. Besides the photo exhibition, there are also booths selling various handicrafts made by villagers from the Doi Tung Development Project, many kinds of plants from the northern region, as well as quality products from the Mae Fah Luang Foundation. Free admission. For more information, call 02-658-1000 ext 234 - 9. Full review at: /entertainment/entertainscoop/201492/always-missing-her
