Nee our Shan worker in front of the banana plants here at Nam Yang Thailand

Nee has worked at the Kung Fu Retreat off and on since about 2009. His best skills include smiling at everyone, cooking and drinking Lao Kao – the local rice spirit. He can, however, turn his hand to just about everything and is very useful in an emergency. Nee is of Shan ethnicity. He speaks Shan, reads Burmese (which he learned when he was a monk!) and also speaks passable Thai.

Nee is married and has an indeterminable number of children scattered around the North of Thailand.
