    "Cheaphigh"

    What is the closest translation of the Thai word 'Cheaphigh' in English? Is it dammit, man or WTF, or what?

    Cheers

    As far as I know it's slang and used in the same way you would when you say "it's fucking hot". i.e. "rawn chip high"

    Since it follows an adjective it is probably something a bit stronger than bloody but not as bad as fucking ie :

    peng shiphai bloody / fucking expensive

    You certainly don't want to use it in polite circles. Something similar is

    shipeng ie ron shipeng blooming hot

    which is a step down from the other two and heard on television a bit and is not so frowned on.

    My wife said it's an exclamation you would use when something you've been working on collapses, similar to 'oh shit'.

    Or in layman`s terms: "damn".

    Heard a thai lady once use this expression as a joke when she accidentally dropped a chip on the floor in a casino

    Haai usually means disappear, and chip, well, you get the meaning....
    Not that chip is spelled the same way, but still funny.

    My staff inform me that "chip hai" means "everything destroyed", ie; fucked. Used when angry or stressed.

    "Chip beng" more polite version. Less likely to get punched

    I dont think Chip Hai will get you punched as its often an expression of anger with yourself or situation.

    Where as calling someone Naa Hee will definately get you a punch up the bracket
