What a beauty.
A matured beauty well-aged to 50 years-old.

prison sentence could have stirred further unrest. Three policemen were
allegedly involved in driving the former premier to the Thai-Cambodia
borders two days before the Aug. 25 verdict.
Srivara on Tuesday said that results of an ongoing DNA test which would show
