Another wooden bookmark from South East Asian country - Thailand. My boss gave this to me when she arrived from a business trip in Bangkok. She kinda know i fancy bookmarks.

While Carabao is the beast of burden in the Philippines, it is the Elephant in Thailand. The Elephants were also important in battle, with kings mounted on them fighting the Burmese to defend their country on many occasions. They have also been noted for their intelligence, memory and pleasant nature. A Thai legend has it that a marriage is like an elephant-- the husband is the front legs, that choose the direction, the wife the back legs, providing the power.
Elephants only sleep for three or four hours a day, usually from 11pm to 3am. They simply lie down, yawning and later snoring just like humans. Only sick elephants sleep standing up.
