Finally we came over to Thailand and started the build. One of the first steps is a ceremony called “Lucky Day” connected to the first poles made and connected to the bedroom. They were quickly setup and we had an hour long special ceremony to celebrate this important beginning.
All connected to the number nine, so the ceremony started at 8:29 and the pouring started at 8:59.
There was a banana tree with coconuts and banana’s tied to the first pole. All connected by a wire we were all holding. The special gifts where on the table pointing to the 4 directions , East, West etc but also up and to the earth.
Pat made a special bouquet with flowers from around our house. We also placed some special personal things on the bottom before the pouring started. First buckets for the two poles we did by hand than the real work started.
Here are some impressions:
