Witsarut Paopang in 'Sweet Boy.'

Isn't he the cutest of things! His name is Witsarut Paopang and he
features in a popular Thai drama called 'Sweet Boy.' Although
sadly he only plays a small part in this 2016 drama, a role
in which he plays the camp School classroom queen, someone
that knows the gossip on all the students. He also knows
which of the bigger popular boys like to swing the other way
when there are no girls about.
As a drama 'Sweet Boy' is slow at times and like many Thai
productions you get the feeling that the writers are constantly
being held back by censorship.

The initial story revolves around 'Nack' (Wachirawit Ruangwiwat)
the classroom nerd who falls for another student 'Toy' played
by Palm Raungrong, although it's easy at times to get lost in
vagueness when observing our two main protagonists.

But watching Witsarut (below) is a pleasant distraction.
One can only hope he might at some time get a more juicier
prominent drama role.

Further down below is a trailer video for 'Sweet Boy.'


Classic Cars Gather in St John's Wood High Street

Converging on St John's Wood High Street on Sunday was an extraordinary collection
of vintage and classic cars. Apparently this annual event is now in to it's sixth year with it's
sole intention of raising money for The St John's Hospice.
And as I wandered around looking over some of these classic road gems I was
occasionally reminded by one or two fanatics just how expensive some of the
exhibits were now worth, and the word millions kept popping up.
And one of the vintage former racing cars on display apparently belonged to
Nick Mason, he of Pink Floyd. And for a minimum fee of £25 you could actually
sit in it and have your photo taken.
Among the exhibits as well as several vintage Rolls Royces there was a couple of
classic 1950/60's American cars. And the one I was instantly drawn to
was the Blue Mercury Chevrolet (above). But the strangest looking car was the
one that looked like one of the Red Arrow jets (below). And being a family day
out, it was the one exhibit that kept children fascinated.

Still, Sunday's visit made up for missing out on going to The Kings Cross Vintage
Car Boot Festival back in April where there were more of those big vintage
classic 1950's American cars, although naturally the owners are quite protective
of their vintage vehicles and don't usually let the general public get too close
to what is their pride and joy.
I can just see me... wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt, a pack of Marlboroughs
tucked high up in my sleeve with slicked back hair, and sitting behind the wheel
of a 1950's Chevvy. What a great picture that would make. Still, we can all but dream!
