Marking another orbit around the sun today at 78, General Prawit welcomed his well-wishers in the office room of the Five Provinces Bordering Forest Preservation Foundation. During a breakfast meeting that spanned over approximately half an hour, General Prayut, who made recent headlines with his announcement of stepping down from politics, arrived on the premises around the break of the day.
Prayut extended his personal greetings to Prawit, bearing a vibrant basket of blooms complemented by a thoughtful present. General Anupong got a bit creative and gifted Prawit a small carousel model, conveying to the inquisitive reporters that his intention was to bestow an “endless flow of happiness” upon the celebrant. The president of the Constitutional Court, Pornpetch, mentioned that his objective was simply to offer Prawit best wishes on his special day.
The assembly saw General Prayut’s departure shortly, post the conclusion of the closed-door meeting. Despite the media’s request for a commemorative snapshot capturing Prayut with Anupong and Prawit, Prayut politely refrained. His response to the queries related to his birthday wish for Prawit was subtle yet charming, as the caretaker Prime Minister gifted a serene smile to the press and continued his way.
Rounding off the list of well-wishers were esteemed military commanders including Defence Ministry’s permanent secretary General Sanitchanok Sangkhachan. Also in attendance were politicians hailing from the Palang Pracharath Party. Among them was the interim Digital Economy and Society Minister, Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn. The day was a blend of official routine and personal tributes, marking the birthday celebration of General Prawit in an unforgettable manner.
