Today, I am very glad to be here to join the 35th anniversary of the S.E.A. Write Award which I am one of the nominated awardees. It is hard to describe as this award is an honor meaningful recognition for me to show the success of these many years writing career. Especially, it is very great honor in life to receive the award from Her Royal Highness Princeses Maha Chakri Sirindhorn on this historic day.
Also, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the S.E.A. Write committee of the Royal Kingdom of Thailand to organize the invaluable event to recognize the outstanding achievements of the writers.
Today, we are here and known in the region but its significance brings to the world’s attention the rich literary works of modern Southeast Asia.
