neko’s 2017…

It’s the time of the year again to look back at the good, the bad or the average of the year and also appreciate those that have been a great help throughout the year.

In terms of work, it’s not a good year for me. Yes I work full-time. And my job is a 24×7 job too. Now you must be wondering where do I find the time to sub? LOL! Sometimes I myself wonder about that too!
Well, there’s a huge re-organisation within my company which causes me to take up more responsibility which translated to less time for me to spend in my subbing hobby. But luckily… This year instead of me doing timing by myself like what I did the previous years, I’ve met with group of dedicated people from viet subbing team in particular to step in to fill that role. Thank you CCCS, KitesVN and Anniecat. I know that I’m  finicky and demanding most of the time. Thank you for all your effort and to put up with me!

Donation – “Thank you” to those whom have donated on our donation run previously. We’ve got ourselves two lifetime membership of file storage account with filefactory and also 1fichier to cater for download request demand. And also have renewed our membership with Seesantv. (Just in case if you are wondering, this is where we got most of our HD RAW from.)
And for those who have bought me coffee. Just so you know, not too long ago I’ve stocked up on my Nespresso coffee pod, thanks to your contribution. If you are one of my instagram friend, you’d probably know that one of my “pick me up” would be stocking up coffee! It never fail to cheer me up every time! Just like a good cup of coffee! I think it have something to do with the colorful coffee pods. THANK YOU!

Facebook – There’s a few hiccup we’ve encountered throughout the year. The account got banned a few times because of some copyright strike. Well that’s why I dislike uploading video into facebook. Unable to put up new post in FB as it regards my DM post as spam. Warning from facebook that the personal account seems to be more like page rather than personal account posting. So that’s why the creation of A Neko Meow Meow Project page.  And the last straw was FB disabled the personal page of “Neko Meow Meow” that’s why “Me” (my big fat cat) no longer have a personal account anymore. FB demanded an ID proof for “Neko Meow Meow” in order for me to reactivate the account. Unfortunately “Me” doesn’t own one! Now don’t you feel FB is a bit racist that they doesn’t allow “Me” to own an account? “Me” have friends too you know! At least I he know kitkat’s “Nisa” and “Dao”! LOL! So there goes all my gaming profile. The virtual money which I’ve accumulated playing virtual slot machine. The hours which I’ve spent to candy crushing! Anyway luckily the page wasn’t affected. Let’s hope it stay that way!

Lakorn – Oh my gosh! Without realising I’ve completed 15 series/lakorn compare to 10 last year. And if I were to rank them to my preference. I’d say the ranking would be like this.

15. Yeut Fah Ha Pigat Rak ยึดฟ้าหาพิกัดรัก [Warden of The Sky]
As much as I’m a big fan of Mik. But looking at my sub selection, I’d say this would probably be the least I like. This started out good but then it just went down hill for me. I think partly it’s because I couldn’t stand Dr. Irene stubbornness! Luckily there’s the rest of the couple at the end to make up for it! 😛

14. Love Book Love Series : SECRET & SUMMER เผลอใจให้รักเธอ
Subbed this one solely because it’s WJMild and there’s only 4 eps! ^^’

13. So Sanaeha โซ่เสน่หา [Bounded by Affection]
If I remember correctly I jump into this one solely because of Peak. Still doesn’t get enough of her in Chanee Pee Plak. Any by the time I completed subbing this one I almost turn into Khun Nai Linjee! 😈

12. Thepphabut Maya Thepthida Jamlaeng เทพบุตรมายา เทพธิดาจำแลง [Masquerade Love]
Love the pra’nang. A “Conditional” Project which I’ve started in 2016. Featured a total of 19 songs. The most that I’ve ever seen in a lakorn.

11. Luk Tan Loy Kaew ลูกตาลลอยแก้ว [Undercover Love]
I remember that whenever I’m frustrated in subbing, I just turn to this one. A light hearted lakorn indeed.

10. Parakit Likit Huajai ภารกิจลิขิตหัวใจ
Sean’s acting is really good in this one. I have some good cry with this one! I’m thinking of revisiting Nang Barb. Still thinking…. That’s a topic for some other day! 😛

09. Chanee Pee Plak ชะนีผีผลัก
Like my cat, I’m afraid of ghost. But after watching a few episodes in workpoint youtube channel. I just know that I have to pick this up. Frankly, it’s not as scary as I thought! Khun Pang makes it so much more fun to watch. LOL! I’d say this one fall under comedy horror category!

08. Kammathep Ork Suek กามเทพออกศึก [Battle of Love]
Frankly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this part of Cupid. I jump into this one because of Cris Horwang!

07. Kammathep Hunsa กามเทพหรรษา [Cheerful Cupid]
The first installment of Cupid. I’d describe this with one word “cute” <3

06. Game Payabaht เกมพยาบาท [Game of Vengeance]
It was a long wait. But as a fan of Film, I think it’s worthy! 😛

05. Paen Rai Long Tai Wa Rak แผนร้ายลงท้ายว่ารัก
This one actually caught me by surprise! And the timing was impeccable as I was looking for new project after wrapping up So Sanaeha. And I must say, during that period of time, I’m really looking forward to every Monday to Friday. It was like a marathon subbing every day. And it was fun and encouraging when a lot of people join me in my PRLTWR marathon. We had a good 5 weeks run, don’t we? Thanks to everyone who have participated in expressing their feeling in this one. <3 <3 <3 Let’s marathon again maybe in another daily lakorn! ^^

04. Kon La Kop Fah คนละขอบฟ้า  [Different Lines of Horizon]
Grate! Hmm… What can I say other than Grate is great! 😛 I prefer to see him in bad boy rugged character rather than all suit up. Yes! I’m definitely looking forward to him and Saimai in My Heroes Series.

03. Nieow Huajai Sut Glai Peun เหนี่ยวหัวใจสุดไกปืน [The Spirit of the Ruler]
Among all the 15 lakorn. I’d say that this one would be the most cheezy romantic!

01. Mussaya 2017 มัสยา [Irresistible]
I couldn’t decide which I like better. So I’m going to have 2 number one instead. Just as the title have it, it’s really irresistible. Mookda officially make it to my fave nang’ek list.

01. Rak Gan Panlawan รักกันพัลวัน
Nong Nine! <3 <3 <3 I was tempted by Nong Nine and also the cute animals! No regret subbing this one. Love all the cast.

Obsession of this year….. Mik, Weir, Nong Nine, Grate, Mookda, Peak

Missing out… Golf Pichaya – I believe he’s working on one for Mono29 with Yong Armchai and Saiparn. So I hope we get to see that next year.

Blog – I’ve changed to a new theme. But not every pages have been fully integrated yet. We’ll get there in time. Good news for those who doesn’t like Dailymotion. I’ve provided an alternative streaming link other than openload. It’s a paid hosting so I hope I won’t hear any more complain about unable to watch the videos! Please follow the “Link” on the progress table and you should be able to view the alternative link! I’m already done with the newer projects. And slowly working my way to the older projects.

Next year….
Frankly, I have a few lakorn in mind that I wanted to sub. But it still depend very much on the timing when the lakorn will be air, and also my gut feel towards that lakorn. The pra’ek play a very important role in my decision making. You can’t expect me to sit in front of my laptop the whole day staring at someone who I doesn’t even enjoy watching, right?
At least I can say that I’m going to kick-start the year with Dome Pakorn, Margie Rasri & Pok Mindset’s Buang Rak Satan. I’m already counting down the day till it go on air. Yes! I’m that excited! I hope it won’t be a disappointment. 😛
Also I’m trying to wrap up Bpoop Paeh Leh Rak as soon as possible. (Keeping my finger crossed) And once I’m done with that, I’m going to consider another older lakorn to sub at similar pace too. I like to have an ongoing project to keep my subbing momentum going.

Once again a BIG THANK YOU to kitkat @alwaysmeena, Thippy, Nong Pim @lakornluv, Thamnong @Deungdutjai, CCCS, KitesVN, Anniecat, blueskies…. (I hope I didn’t miss out anyone!) Thank you for extending a helping hand whenever I needed one. <3 <3 <3
Also thanks to everyone who have left their “thanks” and “2cents” either at the blog or facebook. Your appreciations are fully received, your thoughts/comments/request are being pondered silently even though I usually don’t response. Well, that’s just me! 😛  Although some comments pissed me off when the answer is just right under the nose or could easily be answered by Mr.Google!  Sorry! I’m not a walking dictionary. I doesn’t have all the answer for you when it comes to lakorn or thai celebrity. Frankly I just started watching lakorn since 4-5 years ago. I might have watched even less lakorn than you do. So a lot of remake are actually new lakorn to me. 😀
Now I know what your next question going to be. LOL! No I’m not Thai and Thai language is not even a 2nd language to me. It’s a foreign language which I started learning 3 years ago just so I can watch lakorn without depending on subtitles. Yes! I do understand the frustration of waiting for eng sub. But keep in mind, there’s always solution to every problem. Just that some require more effort and time to solving it. I’ve solved mine, so could you! 😛 I’m still learning new words every day. That’s why I consider each lakorn that I pick up as a project or an assignment which to be completed in due time.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my selection of subbed lakorn for this year. See you again next year! HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!

  1. Did you know that the volume doesn’t work on the alternate video for Nieow Huajai Sut Glai Peun เหนี่ยวหัวใจสุดไกปืน [The Spirit of the Ruler]?

  2. I’m a bit late but HAPPY NEW YEARS! I am so grateful for your time into subbing these wonderful lakorns for us. Thank you, truly.

    Mussaya has to be my favorite from 2017. I mean, it was one of the only two lakorns I’ve actually finished in 2017. I lose interest quickly but Mik and Mookda were just so cute together! Mookda is definitely someone I will keep close eyes on in the future. Waiting for her newest one just to see her, haha. & Mik, oh mann. I didn’t think he was all that handsome but wow was I wrong. He is indeed a charming guy.

    Again, thank you and have a wonderful year!

  3. Happy New Year neko! Thank you for a great year of subbed lakorns you brought to us. Your # 1 and #1 are my favorite as well. More success to your hobby and work for 2018.

  4. You are the best! Can’t wait for more of your projects. Although I revisit many of the previous projects because I enjoy Grate and Film. Nine has such a fabulous voice I hope to hear and see more of him in the future. Happy New Year!

  5. Happy new year!
    You all certainly made the year more enjoyable 🙂

  6. I appreciate all the hard work you and your team. I’m looking forward to your new projects and want to say a big THANK YOU for introducing me to Film…i have lost track of how many times I’ve seen Game Payabaht. Happy New Year

  7. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your hard work!!! I haven’t watched all as it usually takes me some time to finish one drama. I just wanna say that I love watching Paen Rai Long Tai Wa Rak and found myself cheering for Neung and Fah all along. I certainly did not expect to fall for “Uncle of the Year” when I started watching! 😀 I was actually late coming in for that lakorn as I only started watching in November. Oh how I wish I had followed it when you started subbing it. But better late than never! 😉

    All the best for 2018 ya … HAPPY NEW YEAR or as we say it in Malay “SELAMAT TAHUN BARU”! ♥ ♥ ♥

  8. Hi Neko! Thank you for all your hardwork this year! Without you and the community of Lakorn translators I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy so many new dramas and actors and actresses. I wanted to say, I hope you have a fantastic New Year and please enjoy some coffee on me!

  9. Your sub are always one if the best sub I am looking forward to!
    Thanks always for the effort and happy new year 2018!

  10. Thanks for your hard work in the past – I really enjoy your subbing and your other writings as well. Happy New Year!

  11. Happy New Year 2018 to Neko and team. Wishing all of you abundance of joy, laughter and of coz prosperity with good health and big wealth <3<3<3

  12. Thank you!! And Happy New Year!!!
    We’ll be patiently waiting for your upcoming projects 🙂

  13. Thank you for your hard work and time spent that allows us to enjoy lakorns!

  14. Thank you for all you (and the team) do. I have no ear for languages so you are a life saver for those like me that discovered a love for lakorns. Happy New Year!!

  15. Thank you for subbing those series! I will be watching Rak Gan Panlawan because of Nine & also because you ranked it first. Have a joyous new year!!! 🎉

  16. Thank you for your amazingness! I am a fan of your projects, your website, and your posts. I definitely owe you more than just a cup of coffee now. One day, I’ll be able to buy you multiple cups. =)
    Now you have me wondering, what is your first and second language? How did you learn Thai so fast?
    Keep up the great work!

    • Well I did attend a few Thai language courses at language school. And I guess subbing everyday does help too. Like any foreign languages, dictionary or google is your best friend. 😛

  17. Thank you very much for your hard work. I know this are only word, but behind this word is a beating heart full of joy to have the opportunity to understand thai lakorn.
    I hope your 2018 will be full with the joy that you give to all of us fans.
    Health, wealth and a lot of love.

Leave some words of Encouragement or Thought! No sub request/lakorn request please! Thank you!
