A feel-good video of a Thai student kissing his mother before saying goodbye at the school gate has gone viral on Thai social media.
The Thai student is an M1 (freshman in high school) who goes by the name “Nong Ice.” He and his mother riding a motorcycle were caught on CCTV stopping near the gate. But before he heads off to class, he first gave his mother a “wai” (slight bow, with the palms pressed together in a prayer-like fashion) and then showered her with kisses.
According to Nong Ice’s teachers, he does this every day. While everyone is still busy preparing to go to school, Nong Ice is already at school. He is always the first to arrive at 6 am.
The video which was uploaded on Saturday by Facebook user เสรี สุขโยธิน, has been viewed over 2 million times with over 80k shares and 72k engagements.
