Songkhla ‘was’ my home, but somehow it no longer feels like it ‘is’.
Recently, I came across family photos taken at Samila Beach in the year 2000, the same year I relocated to Songkhla. They evoked a strong sense of nostalgia. Situated between my home and school, Samila Beach held a special place. However, after residing in Bangkok for 8 years and returning in 2022, I realized I no longer felt at home in Songkhla, despite it being my place for 14 years.
Mermaid, giant cat, and rat sculptures stand as tourist attractions, enticing visitors to capture memorable photos. These sculptures are part of a rich narrative that, until now, I had never taken the time to truly absorb and remember.
