Birthday boy Prayut tells media "I am what I am"
By The Nation




BANGKOK: -- Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Tuesday thanked Government House reporters for giving him a birthday card and their good wishes to mark his 63rd birthday.


General Prayut admitted that sometimes he became aggressive with reporters but that was due to work-related stress, adding that he held no personal grudge against them. 


“I just want what we are doing to be completed successfully, otherwise we will not be able to move further,” he told the media. 


“We have attained many successes. In some areas, we are in the process of doing [work] and almost succeeding. But in some areas, we are just in the starting point.”


Prayut asked the media to accept the fact prime ministers have different characters. “I am what I am,” he said. 


The PM gave a commemorative coin in memory of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej to each of his media well-wishers at Government House.


On Tuesday morning, he and his family offered alms to nine monks at his residence inside the First Infantry Division to mark his birthday.

He also said:


Oh I am what I am 
I'll do what I want 
But I can't hide
I won't go 
I won't sleep 
I can't breathe 
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave 
I can't hide 
I cannot be 
Until you're resting here with me


He was referring to democracy. Not sure what he means by 'resting' though. 

"He also said:....."

I hope he is a Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong fan to have remembered those words.,
