A Bangkok fruiterer had the proudest day of her life when she impressed a visiting monarch with her durians and her love for His Majesty the King.

Banchong Chuernklin, 47, of Noinan Fruits in Aor Tor Kor Market, met Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg when he stopped by on Monday.

"He looked at durians on the stall and seemed to be interested, but his entourage warned him that they might cause diarrhoea, but when I told him through his interpreter that he could taste one, he said he'd like to," she said.

She cleaned a knife and peeled him one.

"He picked it up in his hand, tasted it and said it was delicious," she said.

After offering him a mangosteen, which he also liked, Banchong told his entourage that she would like him to have them free of charge, but they said

they could not possibly impose on her.

The Grand Duke bought four kilograms of durian for Bt1,000, and she included other fruits free of charge.

"He asked me why, and I said: 'You are most welcome as the guest of my dearly beloved King.' When it was translated I saw him smile," she said.

The next day, to her surprise, a police officer called and told her that the Grand Duke had been most impressed by her words about His Majesty and by the love that Thais bore for their King.
"I'm so glad. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience for an ordinary person like me to meet a foreign monarch," said Banchong. "I hope he comes to Thailand again."

msfroyste 06-23-2006 01:19 PM

BMC 06-23-2006 01:47 PM

I like him better without the beard. And he looks a bit thinner, one while there he seemed to be getting quite plump!
