On June 9, 1946, HRH King Bhumibol Adulyadej was ascended the throne as the King of Thailand (then Siam). On that day he promised the people of Siam that he will reign with righteousness for the benefit and happiness of the Siamese people. Since then, Thai people have revered him and their love for him is incredibly deep.

Yesterday saw the sale of yellow t-shirts sky-rocket as markets across the country began selling shirts to celebrate the special occasion. Ton Lum Yai market was very busy with people buying t-shirts. People in Thailand wear yellow to show their love and loyalty to the King.
