2018 Another Year of Fansubbing **Updated**

2018 mark the 4th year of A neko^^ Meow Meow Project!

I must say it’s one of the most challenging year amongst all the year which I’ve spent in the lakorn world. If you’ve been following what’s happening, you’d probably know what I’m talking about. Probably because 4 is never a good number in Chinese belief! Hmmm…. Maybe I should list it as the “3A year”! 😹

It’s that time again to look back at the list of project which neko have completed. Whether I find it good, bad, best or worst! 🙃 And this is totally base on neko’s point view. So some of you might not feel as strongly towards it as I do.

p/s: Oh! This is going to be a long post. So bear with me. Frankly if you could sit through my subs, you probably could sit through my rant about each project too! So here goes 😆

13. Por Pla Lai พ่อปลาไหล (https://nekomeowmeow.com/porplalai/)
It’s not secret that this would be my least fave. OH MY GOSH! 🙀 I don’t even know where to start! Okay I have to admit that it started out pretty good. Maybe ep1 and ep2. But then each episode just drain the strength out of me. I couldn’t believe what the writer put us (or maybe it’s just me) through. I can’t believe how the story line unfold itself. True that there’s quite an adequate amount of humor in the lakorn. But there’s a lot of Ken’s action which I totally disagree with and I don’t think he even deserve to get the girl. And if I’m his friend Golf, I wouldn’t have stuck by his side. How can he sabotage Golf and Min relationship just because Golf not wiling to side with him. 😅 Frankly knowing that there’s some people who actually waiting to watch this lakorn is basically what keeps me continue to go on. If you are one of them, thank you for sending word of encouragement so that I didn’t drop this one! Frankly, a big shout out to all the timer who sit through this one MLAT, FST Fansub, Annie Cat… This is one lakorn which I truly didn’t enjoy. The acting was decent it’s just that the story line is not my cup of tea! I got suck into this one because of Film and also the teaser! 😣 Watch this only if you are true Film fan and also if you concur with guys being a player and woman should be forgiving and acccepting them as they are!

12. Bpoop Paeh Leh Rak บุพเพเล่ห์รัก (https://nekomeowmeow.com/bplr/)
Phew! This one sure took a long time to complete. 2 years! Wow! Well a little trivia regarding this one. kitkat & Blueskies bought two sets of DVD which is available on the net and also check out 2 streaming websites for the video sources until we found something satisfactory. The audio were lousy for old lakorn. It was just too hard for me to hear exactly what they were saying and I was secretly hoping that ch7 might do a rerun on this to save me from my misery. But in that two-year duration, it didn’t happen. But nonetheless, it’s completed! I’ve always been a fan of Aum Patcharapa. She’s probably the first nang’ek which I’ve ever watched. I notice that there’s something about old lakorn that’s not available in current lakorn. I just couldn’t put my fingers around it. Maybe these kind of old lakorn just have a different kind of flavor compare to the new one. Maybe it just feel more Thai. ^^’

11. Sai See Plerng ทรายสีเพลิง (https://nekomeowmeow.com/saiseeplerng/)
Chompoo Araya, Poh Nattawut, Chakrit Yamnam, Alex Theeradeth, Mew Nittha… All in one! I feel that it’s a little waste that this was left unsubbed. I think there was one or two eps subbed in viki but it wasn’t completed tho. So one fine day I just decided to adopt this lakorn.😄However this is not usually a genre that I would really go into. It’s a bit too gloomy to my liking. Too much plotting for revenge and too little FIN scenes.

10. Bangkok Rak Stories : Kon Mee Sanae คนมีเสน่ห์ (https://nekomeowmeow.com/konmeesanae/)
I’d say that this is short & sweet. And definitely my cup of tea. This one sits at #10 of my list is not because I dislike it but it’s because I like the rest more! The character that I love the most would probably be Grandma Samorn. She a Grandma who goes the extra mile for Bua Loy. Pretending to P’Aoy and P’Chod from Club Friday so that Bua Loy would tell her about her problem. Super passionate about karaoke. And knows that J Jetrin would be the answer to Bua Loy! She never fail to make me laugh even from beyond her grave!

9. Kard Chuek คาดเชือก (https://nekomeowmeow.com/kardchuek/)
First time subbing this genre of lakorn. When I pick this one up I knew that this one would be challenging especially when it revolves around Muay Thai Kard Chuek but never did I know that there’s so much lines to sub per episode despite that this is an action lakorn. I love both the couple in this lakorn, Kelly & Jakjaan, Mik & Bow. Both couple are super adorable at their own way.

8. Buang Rak Satan บ่วงรักซาตาน (https://nekomeowmeow.com/brsatan/)
What can I say other than Dome Pakorn 😻😻😻

7. Sanae Rak Nang Cin เสน่ห์รักนางซิน (https://nekomeowmeow.com/sanaernc/)
Love all the 3 couples. And Vicky or Vickier have turn into a household name in discord when referring to Nang’rai! 🤣

6. Payak Ka พยัคฆา (https://nekomeowmeow.com/payakka/)
Full or romance and kisses. 😘 Ch8 never seems to hold back on this two ingredient and neko^^ is loving it! Iang! Oh Iang! 😻😻😻 This one would definitely rank higher if it’s not because of the ending. I’m still heartbroken!

5. Mee Piang Rak มีเพียงรัก Secret Moon (https://nekomeowmeow.com/secretmoon/)
I know that a lot of people are frowning regarding the pairing. But I for once think that this pairing fits perfectly for this script. Oh well, neko is a biased person so you might not want to listen to me totally! 😝 I like both P’Ken Theeradeth and Toey Jarinporn. Ken is just so fine. He is just like a good wine which gets better with age. I’m just glad that Citizen Kane did a good job this time. (At least that’s what I personally think.) I even enjoy Kon Rak Strawberry so if that one didn’t work out for you, then you and neko are not at the same page of judgement scale. Don’t worry,  don’t doubt yourself. You are not the strange one. Cause neko is just neko! With her own cattitude! Cat people would probably know this! 😛 Cake Nattavat a.k.a Haew really did a great job in this one. I probably wouldn’t mind another lakorn of him in the future. And Krissie as Da is just optimistic that she’s giving me this positive vibes whenever I’m subbing her part. The best thing I like about this lakorn is that the nang’rai is not actually that “rai” and I like it that my pra’ek knows who he wants and what he wants!

4. Look Mai Lai Sontaya ลูกไม้ลายสนธยา [TWILIGHT BOND] (https://nekomeowmeow.com/lookmails/)
I’ve said this before, neko is a very temperamental person. And neko get easily influenced and suck in by the lakorn she subbed. Fortunately this is one lakorn with virtue. Well frankly, neko kind of needed that during that period of time. And swooning over Hem Hiran ❤ does help to brighten my days.  Love the soundtrack. Love Sean & Pimmy. They have great chemistry together and I’d love to see them to be pair up again. I kindda forgotten how swoon worthy Sean is. Frankly to me, he’s one pra’ek which is out of sight, out of mind. Kekeke! This would probably be one of the lakorn which I did the most reading and research on.

3. Trabab See Chompoo ตราบาปสีชมพู (https://nekomeowmeow.com/tschompoo/)
I call dib for this one right after Khun Mae Suam Ruay. Frankly I didn’t know what I get myself into. I just like Bua and Pop that I wanted something more from them. There wasn’t much to go on at that time. Just a poster with Bua and a cute newbie Pra’ek and lotso newbie side character. Pon a.k.a Peat doesn’t really appeal that much to me when he’s in Sanae Rak Nang Cin but in this…. He really outshine himself. I think he did a great job in this.
It’s amazing how many people marathon together with me on this one. Thank you everyone. I feel your love! With all the comments that I’ve received for this show and the number of viewers on the page and video. Thank you people. Your eagerness just motivate me to get the episode out to you as fast as possible! Knowing so many people will be marathoning with me on a daily lakorn, that would probably be one of the reason that I’ll taking evening lakorn anytime. (As long as there’s my fave pra’ek or nang’ek tho. I don’t mind newbie as long as he’s an eye candy! Yeah that’s how shallow neko could be at times!)
In the middle of the lakorn, I thought this would be the one that I’d place as my most fave amongst all that I’ve subbed for 2018. But unfortunately to me it just kinda go downhill at the last 3 eps. And towards the ending, I still have a few questions which were unanswered regarding the embezzlement. And did Peat and Chaya really slept together? Well for those who have watched the IG clip you would know that it didn’t happen. But how about those who didn’t? I’d still like a proper explanation. Also Kriss & Chaya seems to have dominate the last eps. But at least I’m satisfied with the ending kiss. So glad they didn’t crop that one out like what they did to us viewer in ep18!

2. Panthakan Rak พันธกานต์รัก (https://nekomeowmeow.com/panrak/)
This one makes me craving for more and more. I was having a hard time pulling away from this one. Looks like Mookda manage to land at top spot again this year. I’m really looking forward to her lakorn with Mike Pattaradet next year.

1. Khun Mae Suam Roy คุณแม่สวมรอย [You are Me] (https://nekomeowmeow.com/khunmaesr/)
And the winner is… (drum roll) none other than Khun Mae Suam Roy! Bua X Pop vs Bua X Pon! Actually I couldn’t really decide which combi I like better. Bua have chemistry with both the pra’ek. And because they are using the same filming location for KMSR and TSC, I couldn’t help seeing the shadow of KMSR when I’m watching TSC. Especially in these scene. Kekeke I let you be the judge of it.I just re-watched this one recently. Well honestly that was when I was waiting for more eps of TSC to be released. I realised that I still FIN and enjoy it as much as I did back when I’m subbing this. I would consider this lakorn as perfect if they did not cut out the kissing scene of eps26. 😤 p/s: I  recently just hunt down the missing kiss scene and added into KMSR ep26 video page. If you want to know what I’m talking about, feel free to check it out!

Thank you for watching A Neko^^ Meow Meow Project. I appreciate all the feedback. Even though some demanding one does pissed me off! However all the “Thanks” are well received. Don’t forget to thanks my timing team too. They deserve the biggest thanks. Sometimes I put them through the lakorn/series that they doesn’t even like. And I’m kind of demanding too. I like my timing to be done a certain way. Remember, as a viewer, you could fast forward all the scenes that you doesn’t like. But as a timer and subber, we have to sit through it no matter how much we dislike it. Do you know that sometimes I’m tempted to put this in sub “neko doesn’t like this scene or she/he just being obnoxious”. Also especially when many people talking at the same time, that I need to replay and listen to the line over and over again. I’m so tempted to sub as “Blah! Blah! Blah! They are just babbling” Hmmm…. Maybe I’ll do it someday! 😈
I’m grateful for my timing team. They probably get the least recognition. So I’d like to take this opportunity to thanks them again and make sure that they feel loved. Remember those time where you get same day releases for Khun May Suam Roy or Trabab See Chompoo? They were they one who stayed up late to get the timing done so neko could fill in all those blanks! And remember because of the timing team good timing that you are able to FIN the lakorn to the max. Once again thank you team!
p/s: It took me 20-30 mins to time a 10 mins clips and I used to do this by myself previously. So imagine how much time I’ve saved when the timing team volunteer to do it for me. Frankly, I doubt I’m able to sub anymore lakorn without the timing team support.

Last but not least…. Thank you kitkat for your support. Even though you’ve been busy with school but thank you for keeping up with my demand. Thank you to fellow subber, Thippy, Bitter Kisses and Subber Paradise for helping out whenever I get stuck! And also for hanging in there together with me! This year, despite all the unpleasant stuff that’s going on in lakorn society, I’m glad that there’s discord which more or less help me to brave through the year.

As for what project in store for 2019? There’s still some left over lakorn which I’m interested in subbing but wasn’t air in 2018. I added a few new one too. Feel free to head over to the future project page and see if there’s anything in the list which is to your liking.

And to kick-start the 2019. I’m giving away a channel 3 table calendar. So you’ll get Pon in January,  Nong Nine in May,  P’Ken in December. And all you need to do is tell me among the 13 completed projects in 2018 which one is your favourite and why. The comment with the most “likes” will win! 😊 And if so happen we have a tie, kitkat will be the judge of it! Dateline : 28th Dec 2018, 9pm Thailand time. Winner will be contacted via email, so make sure you put in a valid email when you comment!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

~THE END~

28th Dec… Last minute Update! 

Look like we’ve got a last minute addition to the 2018 neko’s completed subbing project. 😅 I never thought that I could completed this in time before the new year! So to compensate Bussaba, I’m giving it a pic on it’s own! 😝

Leh Rak Bussaba

Now where would I rank Bussaba?
I’d say Leh Rak Bussaba (https://nekomeowmeow.com/lehrakbussaba/) would sit at number 4 just after Trabab See Chompoo. I love the bromance in this lakorn. And the relationship within the family warm my heart. And gosh! Dindaen is just so cheeky in an adorable way! 😻 I must admit that I actually like the starting of the lakorn better compared to the last few eps. Love the setting of the lakorn. But not really digging Boot’s outfit! 😎

  1. Thank you so much for subbing Lakorns. My top favorite will be Mee piang rak. I had so much fun watching it. Ken is my favorite as well as Toey. I barely notice the age difference bcoz they really nailed their roles, lol. Totally loving it. Sai see plerng will be my closed 2nd because I adore Chompoo & Chakrit so much. Mew & Alex also shine in this lakorn. You mentioned you enjoy Kon Rak strawberry, well me too. That’s the lakorn that introduce me to Chompoo. I find her role weird & funny at the same time. I’m so happy with your choices since some of them are rom com, my weakness. Again, thank you so much & looking forward to see your upcoming projects.

  2. Thank you so much for every sub you did… You have a great work and we love you so much… I am always follow your work…

  3. A big THANK YOU to you and the subbing team! We couldn’t have watched these wonderful lakorns without you guys. You’re AWESOME!!! Out of the 13 I only had watched 6 so far. My favorite is probably TSC! Every week I’m always looking forward to the next episode! Now I gotta go watch KMSR since Bua did a good job in TCS. Crossed my fingers for the calendar. 🙂 Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

  4. Thanks for all of your hard work! It’s highly appreciated. My favorite lakorn out of the ones above is hands down Trabab see chompoo. I was hooked! I’d watched the small clips on Instagram, watch the raws on ch 3’s YT and then wait for your amazing subs! Pon and Bua has such great chemistry and I hope that they have another lakorn together in the future. Still can’t believe they cut out that amazing kiss though! Thanks!

  5. I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU to the timing team. All of the work you guys do behind the scenes is much appreciated!! Hope you spend some time resting and relaxing before the start of the new year ❤️❤️❤️

  6. I’ve watched Sanae Rak Nang Chin and Khun Mae Suam Roy.. Out of two I loved KMSR the most. The plot are interesting,intriguing and thrilling with exceptional chemistry between Pop and Bua. The mystery, the romance, the story are just my taste. I am so thankful to you Neko for subbing this lakorn. Youre the best! 😘😘😘

  7. Thank you, Subber neko for your hardwork this year, especially when you work really hard on subbing trabab see chompoo! Its fast as the light!!!
    Well, from 10 your lakorn list, my favorite is Khun Mae Suam Roy!!!
    I appreciate Bua two characters, she did it very well. She makes me didnt realize that Sina and Siriya was played by the same person, so i only support Sina and Thi😂
    Pop Bua (Sina and Thi) chemistry are strong enough. They love, hate, miss and teasing each other are so cute.
    Thats true, they use the same building with trabab see chompoo. When i watched the scene Chaya in the garden, its remind me when Sina and Thi just walked pass by without a single word😭my most heart broken scene

  8. Thanks neko for all your hardwork so that souls like us can derive pleasure from otherwise mundane life.
    My favourite lakorn was tra barb see chompoo . Though the revenge genre has been done to death…it is the realistic dialogues , amazing chemistry between the leads , a tight and amazing cast and of course the superb kisses and skinship , which made me continue the lakorn. Having said that I will be honest that the lakorn went downhill from EP 19. Peat s man-child behaviour reached epic level. I also love kiew s character a lot because she was the only one with a sensible head with realistic behaviour.
    Chaya was ostrich in sand . Kriss was smart and cunning compared to peat. Kriss took his revenge smoothly. Peat screamed revenge and kept falling into a pit. I wish they had redeemed his character little better at the end. Otherwise kiew would spend all her life pacifying peat whenever he is upset haha.

    But this watching would not have been possible without neko. She kept the interest alive by subbing really fast and even surprising us with spoiler s. Thank you dear. Truly appreciated.

  9. Thank you Neko and the whole team for sharing lakorns to us who cannot understand Thai. Your work is very much appreciated!

    My favorite lakorn from the list has to be Trabab See Chompoo. It gave me the slap/kiss/revenge feels that you can only find in lakorns. I admit I tend to stay away from this type of genre because I have to admit logically it just doesn’t make sense. But when you have two beautiful eye candy leads that can actually act and at the same time have such an amazing chemistry onscreen, you don’t want to miss it! I keep wanting more scenes between Pon and Bua! And as of this moment, I am having bad withdrawals. I have been rewatching FIN scenes as well as stalking Bua and Pon on Instagram hahaha. Thank you for subbing this lakorn. It was such a guilty pleasure and I am so thankful that the subs were available right away so it was less torture to wait. So far your lakorn picks are always on point and I am always looking forward to your projects! Have a wonderful holiday season 🙂

  10. woohoo! Congratulations to another year Neko! The 4th year? I think for me too hahahaha. Did we actually start the same year? LOL! Looking forward to 2019 together again!

  11. Thank you for your hard work, Neko! I loved Khun Mae Suam Roy, it was in my top 5 lakorns for the year and I am so grateful you subbed it. And Mee Piang Rak will likely join that list when I finish it. I’m halfway through now and absolutely loving it. Thank you thank you thank you! And happy holidays and a happy new year 😊

  12. I just really would like to say THANK YOU sooooo much for subbing all these lakorns for us for the past 4 years! Lakorns are not subbed by many people compared to Korean Dramas and Chinese dramas etc. Thankfully us international fans have subbers like you and Thippy as well as many timers that help us enjoy these wonderful lakorns 🙂 This past year has been extremely difficult due to all those crazy and annoying trolls and the crazy copyright issues but you guys still chose to keep going for us! We are so appreciative and thankful for you guys! I can’t say it enough! Thank you <3

    • And I forgot to put Trabab See Chompoo as my favorite from this list! It was my favorite because it had that significant lakorn charm that attracted me to lakorns in the first place. This year in my opinion, there wasn’t many lakorns that I liked because a lot of them were very bland and didn’t have that signature lakorn “feel” to them. I wasn’t expecting much from this lakorn but once I started watching it, I got sucked in and I finally got that same feeling I got from previous lakorns! I hope to see better lakorns next year 🙏

  13. Thank you for another lakorn-filled year, neko & team! 💖

    I haven’t watched everything but among the ones that I managed to complete, I enjoy Mee Piang Rak the most, and closely followed by Khun Mae Suam Roy. I guess I have a thing for adorable male leads who know what(ahem, and who) they want & what/who to avoid 😹

  14. Thank you for sharing your work with us . It was my first year in lakorn world but I enjoyed every second. Merry Christmas 🤶 and a happy new year

  15. It is amazing how you have the same opinion as me when its talked about lakorns hahaha. I think that’s why I like your site and I am always looking for your projects!!
    Thanks a lot for you great work!

  16. really so nice post,love to hear from you.I have to thank you for your all subs from last 4 years.really appreciable work you have done along with your team.THANKS ONCE AGAIN NEKO DEAR.HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND TO YOUR TEAM.

  17. I was waiting for this!! It doesn’t matter if it’s long, you make it enjoyable!

    PPL will be an interesting watch with the girls… Lol

    Ready to support you another year!

    Su su, aunt! 🤗

  18. Thank you so much Neko , really enjoyed your subbing which is excellent !

  19. Dear Neko,
    I was reading your review though it seemed long, but honestly I never got bored !
    Personally i did not watch all the list since i have I specific taste in lakorns as long as its reflects reality in a way I don’t mind it ( so I don’t like a fantasy and historical types),
    I would say that the top 3 i enjoyed the most are :
    1) TSC
    2) KMSR
    3)SRNC
    P.S : i did notice that TSC and KMSR had similar locations!! I thought that no body will notice 😂😂
    I do agree that timing and translating take time and effort and am sure many viewers know and appreciate your work 🥰🥰
    Looking forward for your 2019 lakorns !! Can’t wait ( am sure many others are like me are suffering as we don’t have good lakorns to watch at the moment 😂)
