The book is part of a project in two stages by Natalia Ludmila initiated after living a decade in South East Asia. It covers seemingly random events that occurred for forty-three years in Thailand and Mexico, imitating classified  diplomatic cables. They were sent over the mail from Bangkok to Mexico City, and all cable letters arrived at their destination. These letters were compiled into a book and published in Spanish, Thai, and English.

The book was launched on 28 November 2023, 5:30 pm-7:00 pm at SEA Junction following its launch in Mexico. The author / artist Natalia Ludmila discussed her book with renowned art critic and educator Brian Curtin as commentator and independent curator Nim Niyomsin as moderator. The artist talked  about her motivations for this project and discussed how it can challenge readers’ views about events in the two countries.
