My Thai teacher is a very nice girl who does a good job at teaching me to speak and everything, but there is no way in HELL that I would be able to ask her to teach me some seriously useful shit like this stuff (to follow). So I asked my friend Arc to teach me some Thai phrases that I could really use when I'm there. Write these down - you WILL need them someday:
You're beautiful = Koon suay na krub
Do you have a boyfriend = Koon me fan mai krub
Can I have your number = Kor ber toe dai mai
Where is your place = Baan koon yoo tee nai
Come back to my place = Ma roang ram khab pom mai
Are you katoy = Pen tood plow
Wanna fuck = Pai yed gun mai
I have a big dick = Kuay pom yai na krub
I like shaved pussy = Pom chob khon tee goan moi
Condoms are too restrictive = Tung yang tum kuay pom jeb
I want to fuck you and your mother at the same time = Pom yaak yed koon lae mae kong koon
Use these phrases liberally and frequently, my friends. They will come in handy and get you in AND out of a tight squeeze. Spread the love.
Apparently Thai bar girls know all of these phrases in english already...
Good call Cam. I'm learning a bit of Thai at the moment but like you were saying, there's no section in the text book that covers this. There should be. Put it under 'key phrases'.
If you guys have any phrases you wanna know, just fire 'em at me and I'll get Arc to translate :P Or conversely you could always go do it yourselves, but I enjoy asking my Thai friend to translate outrageous phrases.
And yeah man I think there should actually be an entire traveller's dictionary dedicated to phrases you can use to further your ill reputation. My friends went to China and the only phrase in Chinese that they learned well enough to use frequently is "I'm white and rich, get out of my way". Of course they aren't ACTUALLY that ignorant, but the reactions they would get and just the fact that they were actually saying it was hilarious (to them, at least).
i heard these a lot
you ding dong( I'm sure i'm not the only one called ths)
go hog(i don't know the spelling but they said it means lier, it uses a short "o" in pronounciation)
nome (something like that, word for breast)
bah i'm losing my words already.
Nom or nome means boobs.
How about -
Pom chop nom yai. I like big boobies.
Bpai doi. I go with you?
My favorites are-
Koon yark ohm koi kong pom mai?
Pom ngyen maek maek!
i bought some book for learning thai in thailand it cost me 50 bhat and someone stole it the same day when i left it outside of the cherrymart
however the name of the book was "thai for lovers" haha,
Hey swedish boy I think maybe Wasana stole it!! She had one and we were reading it at the Cherry Mart!!
hmmm...the plot thickens. The only thing that has ever been stolen from me was my virginity. I got it back eventually but I traded it a few months later for a Ren and Stimpy t-shirt.
This is great man! Thanks!
I will study all weekend!
