Charan “Ran” Chamnuansok recently brought a smile to people’s faces when he posted pictures of himself in a wig and light make-up. He did this for his children, whose school was having a Mother’s Day ceremony. 

It is customary for Thai schools to host an official ceremony before Mother’s Day on 12th August as a sign of respect for moms. The ceremony involves children paying their respects by bowing down at their mom’s feet and presenting them with a fresh jasmine garland. 

Chamnuansok shared that he did this to make his children happy, as he had broken up with his wife 5 years ago due to personal reasons. Thus, he knew he had to step in to fill in the role for his kids. 


He planned everything in advance


Days before the ceremony, he posted a status on Facebook asking if anyone had a long-haired wig to lend him. He wanted to dress up to surprise his 2 children at school – Name (6), and Ben-ten (4).
