Sweet smell of lottery success for Naklua flower vendor

Friday, 11 July 2014 From Issue Vol. XXII No. 28 By  Theerarak Suthathiwong

Everything came up roses for a Naklua flower vendor when she won 12 million baht in Thailand’s government lottery.

Nanthida “Nooch” Khampamool, 33, had bought three tickets bearing the number of her pickup truck license plate before the July 1 lottery. When the lucky numbers were announced, the owner of the Nooch Pothisan Shop in the Pothisan Market discovered she’d be driving that truck all the way to the bank.

Sister Pangdee Makaew, 55 - who was working in the shop with her father - said the sudden riches has forced her into seclusion, perhaps to avoid all the other new “relatives” that suddenly showed up on her doorstep.

Pangdee said she didn’t know how Nanthida planned to spend the cash.
