    History Of Thai Clothing

    Thai traditional clothing varies according to the city and ruler of the time. Thai clothing can be divided into six different historical periods beginning in the 6th century. Traditional Thai clothing was once worn on a daily basis. However, it is now only worn on auspicious occasions such as traditional Thai weddings. Thai Buddhist wedding rituals are often divided into two parts. There is a Buddhist component of chanting prayers and offering food and other gifts to monks and Buddha statues, and a non-Buddhist component focused on the couple's family. Previously, Buddhist monks were not allowed to be present at wedding ceremonies. Monks were required to care for the dead at funerals, so their presence in marriage (associated with fertility and intended to produce offspring) was seen as an ominous omen. Some couples sought blessings from local temples before and after their wedding and asked certain monks for astrological help in choosing an auspicious day for their wedding. The non-Buddhist aspects of the wedding are held outside the temple on separate days.

    Iam quite glad to have had the opportunity to be educated in the facts of world history narrowed down to facts on philippine history. it is because i understood the events of the world during the end of the 19th  century and the birth of the 20th, that i could have properly understood the setting of the story.

    the story has furnished my understanding of life during that era. i know now that people would love to swing and boogie. i know now how the rich and aristocrats faced the world war. i see now the effects of the cultural melting pot that hong kong encouraged into molding filipinos who had never even visited their native land. i see how the freedom fighters of the revolution had slowly drifted away after the americans re-engineered philippine culture. oh, the list could go on, but the instruction was to put the relationship between this fictional piece of literature, society and people, all in a nutshell.

    the literature reflected nick joaquin’s history, the era before the 1960s after the world war, an era of rebirth. the society was changing where the old either envied the youth or clung on to their dying glory. the people were even more multi-cultured than ever before, but still as reckless and sinful as ever. the mix of the society and people of the time in that particular setting of hong kong was wonderfully reflected in the literature of nick joaquin.

    i thoroughly enjoyed reading the novel and would recommend it to anyone to promote the wonderful growth of philippine literature. i’d say it reflects history and reflects the result of colonial past. it shows a micro picture of how filipinos could easily adjust to any environment. how their affairs were no different and equally as important as any other white man.

    i’d especially recommend the genius of nick joaquin’s writing style. the way he could just jump scenes as if it were better than any silverscreen movie is admirable.

    "the woman who had two navels" is a fine classical contribution not just to the philippine literary world, but to all the world’s literature in general that every literary enthusiast must read.
