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.
