The Nang Kwak image installed on the wall of my office was prepared by my Thai friend in 1988. The popular image was something that translate as the Lady God of Fortune - something that very original with a strong Thai flavour. Some of the images can have her hand raised in left or right (or even BOTH). The image was accompanied by another larger piece of votive image in Soomdej Warankang, which was given to me 5 years ago. Well, good thing is, many of my staff in the office are now also being influenced and most of them are having a tablet with them as well... each time my Thai friend comes to Kuala Lumpur, he will perform a ritual praying and chanting for me.
This Nan gKwak ('The Goddess of Fortune" was not installed by my Thai friend, instead, when I moved to a new room of my own upstairs of my original office a couple of years ago, I decided to have a separate Nang Kwak installed in my own room. I went round to look for one at a few local shop that specializes on trading Thai amulets and found this lovely, very well-crafted bronze-metal version of a Nang Kwak. The framed ritual script that locates at the side was given by my Thai friend - I am not sure what was it meant but probably it is something that relates to good fortune. Well, human nature, I won't resist such kind offering, hehe.

The far left image was using holy-powder - scaled at almost life-sized was given by my friend from Ipoh. The center image is quite hard to find now, but you can easily get a miniature amulet from any retail shops as it's the most popular version for LP Thuad. Many people believe this image is best for attaining safety and prosperity of businesses. In fact, many Chinese termed it as the God of Vehicle and you can find many Thai pendant enthusiasts installing one of these at the dashboard of their vehicle.
