Do you notice anything different with this picture?

Malik is wearing his new gold necklace from Tita Carina Acosta! Pogi ba?
It is apparently a Thai tradition to give these necklaces to a baby when he turns a year old. Malik's necklace has a Thai Baht Gold Clasp shaped like an "M". It looks like this up close -

Traditional "M" or "Dragon" clasp for a Baht chain
The gold of both the clasp and the necklace is soft. You just pull at the legs of the "M" to put the necklace on and take it off. Unfortunately, this versatility in the "dragon" clasp is also the reason why this necklace is nursing a battle scar and is waiting to be fixed. After Pao took this photo, I put the necklace around Malik's neck again to see how it looks. Malik got curious and pulled at it.

It was probably not a good idea to let Malik play with the necklace. Now it's broken, but hopefully not beyond repair. I'm keeping it safe somewhere until we find someone who can fix it. Maybe Pao should bring it to Bangkok the next time he goes. Yey.
