German guy weds Thai boyfriend with 1 million baht dowry

German Guy1

Just one day before Valentine’s day, Enno Konec, a 53-year-old meat exporter from Hanover, Germany, wed his 26-year-old boyfriend, Prasert Akra, in his hometown in Chanthaburi province.

The wedding was traditional and both families attended. Enno presented the boy’s family with gold and money worth THB1 million.

As dowry is usually given to the bride, we guess Prasert will take the housewife role after all.

Prasert reveals he met Enno online and they’ve been involved in a long distance relationship for 3 years.

After Enno made his usual visit to Thailand in January, 2013, the couple eloped to Enno’s homeland and had a German wedding in April. They also registered for a marriage license in Hanover.

Charmed by Prasert’s sense of humor, Enno decided to give him the Thai traditional wedding of his dream as an honor to his family.

Living together as man and man, Enno added he’s encouraging Prasert to learn German.



Naked & Quiet Life In Northern Thailand


Uncle Loi never wears a piece of clothing, and he might be the only nudist living in Thailand.

The 62-year-old man lives by himself in a small village of Nan province in the far north. Despite not wearing any clothing, Uncle Loi lives his life normally and socializes with his neighbours who claim he is a very nice, generous man.

He was recently interviewed by a television crew, who oddly enough applied the blur tool to censor all of Uncle Loi.

“He told me he’s just like other people, and if he could wear clothes, he would,” Uncle Loi’s neighbor said in the interview. “He’s just like us. He goes shopping. He attends local events.”

Asked why he chose the nudist lifestyle, Uncle Loi answered that it wasn’t a choice.

“My parents tried to put me in clothes when I was young, but I ended up getting rashes,” he explained. “So I have always refused to wear clothes.”

How does he get by in winter? Uncle Loi simply says he just covers himself with a blanket – but never clothes.

Uncle Loi is a farmer and never leaves his village. He says he’s used to being nude and always rejects when someone buys him a piece of clothing as a gift.
