Country music legend Yuenyong “Aed Carabao” Opakul debuted the music video shot during HM the King’s birthday celebration last year, an anthem calling on Pattaya residents and leaders to follow His Majesty’s “sufficiency economy” philosophy.
Entitled “Sufficient Pattaya,” the song and video received their first screening at Pattaya City Hall Feb. 12, with Yuenyong joining Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome, the directors of Nong Nooch Tropical Garden and Aksorn Technology College, and Anong Sachatheva, winner of the 2011 national “Repaying the Debt to Mother Nature” award.
