    Your favourite Thai word/phrase

    What are your favourite Thai words or phrases?

    Here are a couple of mine:

    ngoot ngit - bithcy

    top-ga-barn - slap in the head (Merkin - slap upside the head)

    panda. Same word in English except Thais put the emphasis and high tone on the second syllable as usual.

    My thai gf's nickname for me because of the dark circles under my eyes from staring at a dark blue screen all night.

    ^ I doubt if anyone would use such polite or formal terms in any event whether wanting to lick a pussy or a cat. Drop the Pom, drop the Khun. Just do it.

    ngoo ngoo, bplaa bplaa. Snake snake, fish fish. I use it often to express how little I know about a particular subject. Always a good laugh for the Thais.

    Try it!!

    nok eang go lang kwai = bird who sits on the back of a buffalo. Mild insult for a stupid person.
