Initially, Lek Chailert was surprised why Faa Mai was behaving in such a strange manner. She explained: “While I was meeting with visitors, Faa Mai suddenly intruded on our talk with clear intent. She pushed me along out into the field, directing me somewhere, and I wondered what it was that she really wanted. Finally, Faa Mai took me to see the little Thong Ae, whom she wants to adopt as her own. In the end, it seems as if Faa Mai wanted me to lullaby her little friend, as she is so fond when I sing a lullaby to her. It is so beautiful to see my little girl who has such a heart of care. I am so proud of this girl!”
