Nationality : Thailand
Date Of Birth : 24th September 1980
Profession : Actress

She is an established and popular actress in Thailand. She started acting in 1997 and today has appeared in close to 40 dramas and 2 movies. She is hailed as the most beautiful actress in Thailand.

In May 2010, she married her longtime beau 'Todd' Piti Bhirombkhadi, son of Singha beer company, the largest beer manufacturer in Thailand. The traditional wedding ceremony and the registration of her marriage was held on May 14, 2010 but the reception was held on May 19, 2010.

Her wedding was held amidst turbulent time in Bangkok, at the height of the protest in the city. The reception was held a day after the burning of Central Shopping Mall in Bangkok by protesters. The hotel where the function was held was very near to the main site of the protest. The couple decided to go ahead with the function as it had already been planned months ahead. Due to safety and traffic concerns , a number of her more than 3000 guests failed to turn up for the reception. Despite this the wedding went on well and it was covered by a television station. She now lives with her husband and his extended family in a five storey house in Bangkok.

Todd was ordained as a monk on November 19, 2009 for 15 days. During that period Noon regularly made food offerings to him during his daily morning walks.

Monk Lakers ?

Basketball has become a fashion among the lamas in Deqen Tibetan Buddhism School, the branch of Yunnan Buddhist Institute in China. Seen here are two lamas Gewen Endron ( with cap ) and Losang Gyaincain having on thier "basketball court" at altitue of 3300m. Basketball is the favorite sports for lamas of this temple. I think they will give those professional players a run of their money if a game is played at this altitute.

Cher, A Lazy Buddhist

Cher is a 'lazy-a*sed' Buddhist.

The singer-and-actress is a follower of the spiritual faith but admits she only meditates or prays when she wants to, rather than when she should.

She said: 'I am the worst Buddhist ever. I love reading it and saying the prayers, but I'm such a lazy-a*sed Buddhist.

'I meditate but only when I want to. I'm so stubborn. I don't like to be forced to do anything. If you try and force me, it's the wrong thing to do.'

The 64-year-old 'Burlesque' star also admitted she found being in her forties the best time of her life.

She added to Attitude magazine: 'I would like to be in my 40s again, because I had so much fun.

'I was just having a really good time. I did three movies in a row. I did an album, my kids were still at home and I had a fabulous boyfriend, so how bad can that be?'
