Heartbroken Schoolgirl Finds Termites Have Eaten Her Money

The heartbreaking moment a Thai schoolgirl found her piggy bank had been raided by termites who had munched their way through her money has gone viral around the world this week.

11-year-old Nong Sawangsin from Kamphaeng Phet had been planning to deposit her savings into the bank when she took out her jar from a cupboard to count her cash.

Footage taken last month shows a down-hearted Nong watching as he mother sifts through the damaged notes, salvaging around 1,000 baht.

Nuanchaliaw said she felt sorry for her daughter more than she did for the money.

She said: “My little girl had been doing small jobs and selling little things to save her money. She wants to buy a car in the future.

“The termites destroyed a lot of the money but we were still able to deposit some in the bank”.

Buddhist devotees whisper their New Year wishes into the ear of a giant rat in Bangkok. The bronze rodent is found at a ‘Ganesh’ shrine in Ratchada. Followers have a mixture of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs.

Footage shows how locals give offerings of brightly-coloured beaded necklaces to the statue before telling it their deepest desires and dreams. It is believed that the animal then conveys the messages to its master, the elephant god Ganesh, also known as Ganesha, who brings good luck and wealth. Many of the followers at the temple were making wishes for the coming year.

”Ganesh is connected with artists and business people, who are trying to create success,” said one the gurus at the temple.
