Learning Thai Is Fun (Lesson 1)

I choked my Big Mac burger when Koi Lee proudly boasted that she could speak just 1 Thai word "Sawasdee Kha". I was wondering what she had done in Krabi resort in South Thailand apart from whole day digging See-Ham by the beach?? Aiyo, any guys would hear this "Sawasdee" word when they look for Thai Ayam or met the Mak Ayam, whichever first. 

I had butterflies in my tummy after my burger thinking about all the fellas who would ask me 1001 questions before jetting off to Bangkok or Phuket. I realized that no one asked me for the vocabs and my male friends often could fluently speak smattering Thais. They learnt super fast to get their "needs" done. Some of their sexual partners became their overnight Thai language teachers on the beds. How nice, they paid for 2-in-1 service!

I have decided to share some words and post them randomly in my blogs, extracting what I could download from my head. It gets rusty when you don't practice anything for too long. Same goes with boozing, wanking or swearing.




The City of Bangkok - home to 9 million folks, monks, ladyboys & street protestors. The Greater Bangkok City itself has 15 million people, so the traffic jam speaks for itself.
