Chum Chamnan makes a tray, used for the Buddhist ceremony Kathen, at her Boeung Kak home adjacent to the pipe that on Tuesday began filling the lake with sand. The 39-year-old has lived here since 1993, making tray as well as fishing and growing morning glories, more than half of which were buried by midday Tuesday. She says she's accepting $8,000 compensation and will move to Kandal, where she will start a new business.
