Yeah!! She 👩🏻 is blessed to enjoy the ‘Pestle/ Stick Dance” aka “Saek-Ten-Saak “ performed by the Tai Saek ethnic group. It’s performed annually on the Tai Saek village ancestor worship day i.e. on the 2⃣nd day of waxing moon of the 3️⃣rd lunar month to please the spirit. She was told that if this dance requires to be performed for other timing/ period, the village spiritual leader will have to ask for permission by offering a pig’s head, 2⃣️0️⃣️️-Thai baht cash 💰 & liquor 🥃, then pick up a predictive coloured stick. If the village spiritual leader has picked up a stick of the same colour, it means the spirit does not 🈲 allow for the request

The dancers will perform to the fast rhythm of drums & striking pestles painted in both red & white colours 😃😁

Wow‼Delicious Mekong river fishes 🐟🐟 lunch served by the Tai Saek local people  👭👬👫

However, she was told by the local people 👭👬👫 of this village that very limited younger generation are interested 😌
