Today's topic is............ headline : THAILAND.. SIAM.. IS IT A SAME THING ?? ..
Well.. as far as I know..as I thought..before this, Thailand is a country, whereas Siam or Siamese is a name called for the people who were originally comes from Thailand..
But, after I've done a small research on the internet..
You see, actually today the country of Siam is called Thailand. It is a country in Southeast Asia that was called Siam until June 1939, it was then called Thailand until 1945, and then it was called Siam again between 1945 and 1949, when it was once again called Thailand back. If u notice, the word thai comes from the ethnic group in the centre of the Thailand. And the capital city is Bangkok. It was such a huge city as like in New York. Never been there actually, but 'em.. just hear it from other people ^^.
But I really want to go there :) . InsyaAllah, one day..
And don't forget that Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia that was not ruled by Western countries due to its westernised system of the government at that time.
Further information on Thailand..
Thailand Political Map
Do you know.. many people believe that the first Thai state was the Buddhist kingdom named Sukhothai founded in 1238 ? Well, I guess it is. Sukhothai achieved independence from the kingdom of Cambodia. Well..about a century later, a bigger Thai kingdom named Ayuthaya had appeared in the South of Sukhothai.
But then, later Sukhothai became a part of Ayuthaya. It's kind of vice versa to me..isn't it?
I don't know..
Ok, Ayuthaya existed for more than 400 years before its fall by the attack of a Burmese kingdom. A Thai soldier of Chinese origin then founded a new capital city at Thonburi, and became King Taksin. For your information, Thonburi was the capital but just for a short period of time.
Then, in the new era a.k.a current era or in simple term pada zaman or saat ini, Rattanakosin, started on the foundation of Bangkok as the capital city by King Rama I of Chakri Dynasty.
But before 1932, Thailand was an absolute power country, meaning that the King had THE total power in the country. Kuasa mutlak ke atas negara Thailand..
Then, on June 24, 1932, a group of people staged a coup a.k.a rampasan kuasa and changed Thailand to a constitutional monarchy, iaitu menjadi sebuah negara raja berperlembagaan. It was not until 1973 that Thai people vote for a Prime Minister in an election. There were coups both before and after this year, banyak rampasan kuasa yang berlaku diantara sebelum dan selepas tahun pemilihan perdana menteri tu..
On September 19, 2006, the army staged another coup and took control from Thaksin Shinawatra's government.Hmm, masih terdapat beberapa isu-isu negara yang saya pun kurang pasti..
Tak nak la pakai cite je..karang tak betul.. habis.. kn?
