Born and raised in the Sisao Thewet area, the rustic charm of Old Rattanakosin seems just all too familiar. Friends would come by and visit, only to be captivated by the 18th Century home full with memories of yesterday gone by. Today, it is one of the few remaining Thai historical houses on Pitsanuloke Road.
When my beloved grandmother M.R. Nualkajorn (Nandhavan) Kamolyabutra passed away, I had the opportunity to reminisce over old days past and relive a few memories of my childhood. While gently sorting her personal belongings and possessions, I was transported back to when my grandmother was alive, and further back to the era of His Majesty King PinKlau Chau YuHua , the Nandhavan Royal ancestry line. Old Bangkok during that time captured my imagination, and my thoughts retraced back to the old Siam where the western and eastern influence were beginning to take place.
