Decided it was time to brush up on my Thai so here's a couple of phrases...

Bah lae! - That's crazy!

Poot-len chai mai? - You're joking?

Tham-mai ja mai la? - Why not?

Mai dai rawk - No way

Mai son-jai rawk - I don't care

Doo cheuy cheuy - I'm just looking

Pom gaw khit baep nan - I guess so

Chahng man thuh -Forget it

Ao leuy - Go ahead

I was chatting to a girl from Udon Thani and picked up a phrase that seems to get a laugh from her.

Pai sai - where you go ? (same as bpenagi in Thai)

Pai buhn - over there.

Next time you're walking past a beer bar and they give it, hey sexy man where you go ? Bpenagi ?

Just keep walking and point ahead - pai buhn ! Watch their jaws drop. You can sa-peak Lao ?

Last year the girl band Blueberry had a hit with this song



Chi Mi (Right?) ชิมิ

Instead of saying - chai mai ? right ? Say - chi mi, chi mi ? Always gets a laugh.
