And the Thais embraced Kikayhood...

As soon as my royal feet touched Thailand soil, I promised myself that I will learn at least 30 Thai sentences before I leave. I have been here for two weeks and all I know so far are “Sa-wat-dee” (hello/goodbye) and "Korp khun" (thank you). My tongue both dislikes pronouncing Thai words and tasting Thai food!

On the otherhand, the project team we work with and the staff that went to training when I was the “teacher” now greet me every morning with “Good morning, maganda Wheng”. They also call my colleague ‘Pangit Richard’. And how would you react when you hear them say “Hay lola!” as they heave a sigh, summon you to lunch with “Kamuning! Kamuning!” (sward speak of ‘come on’) and ask “What’s the matter, peanut butter?”

This morning, Richard is learning how to say chuvanes…

Give me two more weeks and I bet they will soon learn words like chaka, cry-ola, datung, daot and andalucia!

Like a virus, I am spreading myself fast here…
