According to Coconuts Bangkok, although buffaloes are a cultural symbol for Thailand and used by farmers to plow rice fields since ancient times, the Thai word for buffalo—“kwai” has a negative connotation and often used as an insult. Just like how donkey—“ass” is used as an insult in English.

Surat gave an advice on how to be happy in his post, “Live among those you love, do what you like. This is true happiness.”

Let’s hope to see more of their photos!
