By the way, Mook is a nickname given by her mother, which means a pearl. Her real name is Jeerapat Nantanapramoth and it is kind of self-explanatory why most of the people in Thailand have nicknames – it is extremely hard to pronounce their names if you are not native.

The event was very good  and I had met new people, had  spent joyful time with new people and I had learned something new about deaf people‘s life. I even saw a guy that I was interested in years before in the event.
