BANGKOK — Former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra spoke out for the first time since she fled Thailand nearly 10 months ago to thank her supporters for their birthday wishes.

 

Yingluck, who remains immensely popular among Redshirts despite her exile, said her influential brother, ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, also treated her to two meals on the occasion of her 51st birthday. The post was accompanied by a photo of herself at an undisclosed location posing with gifts she has received.

What is with Thailand and its obsession with celebrating birthdays?

 

At least where i am from after the age of about 13 no one cares about their birthday save for a few special ones. 21 50 etc.

 

Here they practically get the red carpet out for anyone of importances birthday, cabinet members go pay respect on so and so's birthday etc etc its quite bizarre.

Yingluck thanks supporters on her first birthday in exile

FORMER prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra sent a message to her supporters as she celebrated her first birthday in exile since fleeing Thailand last August.

 

She turned 51 on Thursday.In her Facebook post, Yingluck said it was the first time she had celebrated her birthday overseas. She thanked her supporters for “still missing and not forgetting” her.

 

She said many people and her “fan club” had sent her good wishes, greeting cards and presents and offered her moral support through different channels. “Many people drove from upcountry to give their presents to me,” she said in her latest message. “I always value your friendship, love and good wishes. I will never forget them.”

 

Yingluck also thanked her elder brother, former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, for his wise words offering her encouragement on her birthday. “My brother said I should make myself happy so that people who love me will have no concern for me. Everyone faces challenges in life,” she said.

 

“He feted me with two meals on my birthday. It’s the first time I celebrated my birthday with him after we had not met each other for a long time. I am happy and impressed,” Yingluck added. She said that she also got a birthday card from her son that he made himself. “I was really touched,” she said.


Yingluck’s previous Facebook message was posted on August 24, 2017, just a day before the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division on Political Office Holders was scheduled to read a verdict in a negligence case against her stemming from her government’s corruption-plagued rice-pledging scheme. The court sentenced her to five years in jail.

Thaksin on Thursday wrote happy birthday wishes to Yingluck on his Facebook page.

 

“Happy birthday, my beloved sister. On your birthday this year, you come to live with me in a foreign country,” he posted. “I will take care of you and make our lives overseas valuable and beneficial to our family and people who love us.”
