Mr. Wichian Phetratanamunee®
+66-(0) 74-427248 (Thailand)
Aged 78, residing at Hadyai, Thailand. Taught under teaching of the late Toh Achan Khong, Songkra, Southern Thailand. We first got acquainted approx. 20+ years ago and became good friend since then. After retirement, he often spent his time travel around Temples in various parts of Thailand to meet his old friends or old "colleagues" who many of them are residing at various locations around the country heading temple operations. He taught me with some basic knowledge relating to collecting Thai Amulets and helps to upkeep my various installations at home & at work place. He has two daughters and a son who work in Kuala Lumpur. He comes down to Malaysia almost once a month for family reunion and perform ritual chanting for me. Nice and honest guy who has a GREAT passion on Thai amulets - probably the only he has and enjoy throughout the years. Strangely, all these years - we only use a mix of languages in Hokien, Teochew, Chinese, Malay and Thai to communicate, ha ! Well, the debut of this website will probably expand his social circle beyond the confined territory. But I would appeal to everyone trying to get in touch with him - PLEASE DON'T fool or trick him - he is a very simple man that has little knowledge on confusing communication. If ever it has anything negative happened to any possible services he can offer to help you, I will be getting very sad indeed for drag and expose him into the electronic media.
Many of the highly collectible votive images appeared in this site (which includes mine) were contributed by him. I am not sure if he wishes to sell some of his possession (which I encourage him to do so..because I think he should take a rest) so, I provide a phone contact for you to get in touch with him.
