Royal Ploughing Ceremony

The Royal Ploughing Ceremony is an ancient royal rite held in many Asian countries to mark the traditional beginning of the rice growing season. The royal ploughing ceremony, called Lehtun Mingala or Mingala Ledaw  was also practiced in pre-colonial Burma until 1885 when the monarchy was abolished.

In Thailand, the common name of the ceremony is Raek Na Khwan  which literally means the “auspicious beginning of the rice growing season”. The royal ceremony is called Phra Ratcha Phithi Charot Phra Nangkhan Raek Na Khwan which literally means the “royal ploughing ceremony marking the auspicious beginning of the rice growing season”

The Buddhist part is conducted in the Grand Palace first and is followed by the Hindu part held at Sanam Luang, Bangkok.

At present, the day on which Phra Ratcha Phithi Phuetcha Mongkhon Charot Phra Nangkhan Raek Na Khwan is held is called Phuetcha Mongkhon Day It has been a public holiday since 1957


Global City – Manila

Bonifacio High Street.

An up market area perfect for an evening walk. Plenty shops and restaurant, at one end is the restaurants and bars, at the other end shops and green areas.

Bonifacio Global City (also known as BGC, Global City, or The Fort) is a financial district in Taguig City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It is located 11 km (6.8 mi) south-east of the center of Manila in an area disputed between the cities of Makati and Taguig[2][3] as well as the municipality of Pateros. The area is currently under jurisdiction of the city of Taguig. In recent years, the district has experienced robust commercial growth through the sale of military land by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). The entire district used to be the part of the main Philippine Army camp.

In 1995, Bonifacio Land Development Corporation (BLDC) started planning a major urban development—Bonifacio Global City. BLDC made a successful bid to become BCDA’s partner in the development of the district. The Ayala Corporation through Ayala Land, Inc., and Evergreen Holdings, Inc. of the Campos Group purchased a controlling stake in BLDC from Metro Pacific in 2003. BCDA and the two companies now control Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation, which oversees the master planning of Bonifacio Global City.2-bonifacio-global-city
