Take a deep breath.

Now, try saying this in one go:


Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit


If you could actually say that in one breath, well done; you have excellent lungs! As a prize you may claim one packet of cigarettes.

We hear, that this unpronounceable wonder of a place is where the Higher Education people are headed for this year’s NSM. There are two reasons why the people going on the other NSM need not turn green with envy.


First, we won’t have to achieve tonsil-twisting feats in order to tell concerned friends and relatives where we’re going.

And second, we hear, we’re off to Miami.  Dude, that is a two-syllable gem of a name.


Enjoy your NSM, you who are off to Krung-whatever!


Delirium, once Delight
