Parents always want the best of everything for their children. This is why they work very hard for their children’s future. This dad however took his ‘son-in-law’ hunt to a whole new level!
A Thai durian tycoon named Anon Rodthong, is now making headlines after he announced that he is willing to gift 10 cars, a house, and 10 million baht in cash to whoever can win his daughter’s heart.
His daughter, Kansita, who has an accounting degree from Assumption University and briefly studied at Sun Yat-Sen University in China, stated that she just wants a good man in her life and has no specific preference when it comes to finding her soulmate.
On the other hand, her dad has quite a few criteria that his future son-in-law should meet. Below listed are the main criteria that the man should have as expressed by Anon:
- You don’t have to be well-educated, being literate is enough.
- You must be diligent, not lazy l
- You must display lots of love for durians.
Ever since he announced the public offer of finding his 26-year-old daughter a husband, the news spread like wildfire over the Internet and now according to the father, he has received tons of offers. WOW! To his great surprise, there were up to 10,000 men vying for the opportunity to be the son-in-law of the durian trader, as reported in AsiaOne. A translated excerpt from the 58-year-old’s Facebook post reads, “Stop calling me, I haven’t had time to rest.”
Anon’s original post is lost, however, his intention to find his daughter a husband is genuine. He has now issued a challenge to all potential applicants, as translated by World of Buzz, saying, “Let’s all meet on April 1. Pack all your clothes and necessities and be prepared to stay and work in my durian plantation for three months.” “If there is more than one of you left (after the three months), we will extend (the stint) for another three months until there is only one man left,” wrote Anon.
When speaking to the Thai Media, the durian trader said that he was very serious about his proposal. “I want someone to take care of my business. I don’t need someone with a degree. I just want a good and hard-working man who is not addicted to gambling or anything. That’s it — everything else, I already have,” he added. “I don’t need anyone as rich as me either, because I will give my son-in-law all my assets.”
