AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Albert Lengviriyakul, or Lengy for short, is the son of Thai immigrants who own a restaurant with the cheesy name Thai-riffic! Lengy is starting high school and sees this as his opportunity to transform his image from the kid who lives in a restaurant to a cool and popular Aussie teen. When his teacher sets a group assignment that focuses on another culture it becomes apparent Lengy won’t be able to get away from his past as easily as he’d like.

'Through a series of hilarious and heartfelt events involving bulk toilet paper, a purple curry and a trip to the Thai-New Year Sonkram Festival, Lengy sees his Thai background in a new light.'
