Traveller’s quirks

Going on a trip can be a “pane” and “bane” thing, esp. when you have a lingua problem. Some say”you either have it or you dont”. I guess I dont. The last trip to China, I tried to master some common words. You should hear how  my conversation with the sales staff turned out – like rojak!!!!  mingled with manglish…… After my return, I looked up a centres so I could brush up my pin yin. Cant find time to slot in.  From 8-14 Nov. I will be in Chiangmai and will not be  blogging unless I can get hold of the internet. These are the few words I think will suffice for one who is teruk in her lingua.

 Hello(sa-wat dee)

Thank you(Khorb koon)

Sorry(khor toat)


How are you? (sabai dee mai)

I am fine. (sabai dee)

How much is this?(ra ka thao rai)

 Looks like fun?……..

    Wah! You go jet setting everywhere. Hey, take me in your luggage. Could feel myself like one of the spectators in movie screen! 😀 Good job!

    Julie, have a great time. The last time I was in Thailand, I only shopped till I dropped….big mistake. Perhap you can entice me to do more in Thailand other than shop. :)) I also see you managed to upload photos now. Big one too!
