Add your loaners


Recommended Posts

Other day a girl I was chatting with online typed วันนี่ไปช็อปปิ้ง - wan nee bi shorpbing (today i'm going shopping). I read it quickly and thought it read "today i'm going to buy a bbq (ซื้อปิ้ง sur bping).. until later on in the conversation when she corrected me which made me laugh.


Anyway, know any other good loanwords? When I first starting learning thai I developed an aversion to them which I know now was a bit silly, if thai people use them then why complicate things further. They're real useful I find as they almost instantly stick, heres a couple new ones to me I've found after checking:


Slang - สแลง - sa laaeng


Gorilla - กอริลลา - gor-ril-aa


Captain - กับตัน - cap-tan

My sister in law was saying to me (as I was driving) "Lio, lio"...... so I went to turn right and she shouted"LIO, LIO!" and gestured to U-turn. I asked her why she didn't say "U-turn" and she replied that she thought "lio"would be better as she didn't think I'd know what "U-turn" meant!!!!!!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
