Uncle Chei aged 60, from Thailand’s Surin Province, is an undertaker. Recently, he became an instant net idol after his photo appeared on Facebook. He appeared to use twine, rather than a belt, to hold his pants up when offering a sandalwood flower to the late King Rama 9th. He had twice been stopped by guards for inappropriate dress. He rode a bike 24 kilometers back and forth and returned with newly purchased black clothes. His story has been shared and liked over 5,000 times, attracting offers of help from local authorities and people all over Thailand. He now has new clothes, shoes and belts, but he insists that he will only wear them when necessary, especially as the twine belt has reliably kept his pants up for over 30 years.
