Honorable Vint Cerf, Bob Kahn, Members of ISOC Washington DC, Ladies and Gentlemen.

This is Srisakdi Charmonman from my office in Bangkok, Thailand. In my capacity as President of ISOC Thailand Chapter and Chairman of ACM Thailand Chapter, we would like to offer our heartiest congratulation to Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn on the occasion of receiving the prestigious ACM Turing Award.

May we also offer to Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn the famous four blessings from Thailand which, in the Thai language, is “Ayu, Wanna, Sukka, Pala”. Let me translate them into English.

The first one is for Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn to live very, very long, like 120 years. The second one is for Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn to look very, very nice, like handsome and respectable. The third one is for Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn to be very, very happy, that is, as happy as you ever like to be. The last one, but not the least important, is for Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn to be healthy, both physically and mentally.

Again, congratulation, congratulation, congratulation to Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn on the occasion of receiving the prestigious ACM Turing Award.

Hope to see you all in Bangkok sometimes. Thank you.
