In the west, saying "how are you" is a common and appropriate greeting. I've been told that with Thais, you'd only ask "sabai dee mai" to someone you know well. It's considered a personal question that's not casually posed to just anyone.

Right. A lot of this whole discussion depends on who you are talking to and their status level, etc

mueng bpen gnai mang wa!. = ( how the hell/fuck are you )..

 

or just ( bpen gnai mang ) = ( how are you )

 

"mueng" just makes it more insulting...

 

dont use " krup " with this one. it will just sound super gay...

 

yeah only use it when you are talking to good friends.

I wouldn't be using "mu_ng" (fuck you) or " guu" (fuck me) at all unless with very close mates.

 

I think I've only used "guu" once when i said to a mate: guu peu_n maa rab/ laa_w/ - fuck me friend come pickup me already

 

Tend to shy away from swearing in Thailand as its pretty impolite and not part of mainstream chat like in the west.

 

Some greetings that I use:

 

Sawadee krab/ - hello

Sabaii jay dii may krab / - feeling good heart?

Bpen yang\ ngai baang^ - Hows it going (or literally "to be how")

Waa^ ngay - Whats up! (only used with very close friends as if said to stranger can mean to want to start trouble)

My understanding of women goes only as far as the pleasures.

I thought directly translated goo and mung(มึง) were just 'I' and 'you', but old words that are now considered insulting. Usage only really reserved for certain negative situations, e.g. "goo mai chawp kow(him/her)" would work, but not "goo chawp gin somtam".

hello,

 

question in regards to the response to กินข้าวหรือยัง (gin khao reu yang - have you eaten yet ?)

 

กินข้าวแล้ว (gin khao laao) OR just กินแล้ว (gin laao) when you have already had something to eat ?

ยังไม่กิน (yang mai gin) OR just ยัง (yang) when you have not ?

 

 

i'm guessing that you could also use

 

อิ่มแลัวหรือยัง (im laao reu yang)

 

and respond with ? . .

 

อิ่มแลัว (im laao)

ยังไม่อิ่ม (yang mai im)

Well your Thai grammar is correct but I wouldn't use 'Im laow ruu yang' as a greeting. 'Kin khao ruu yang', however is often a greeting because they don't always mean it literally.

Is กินข้าวหรือยัง basically just used the way the English may say "what about this weather hey" or "raining again" i.e. you don't really have an interest, but it's a way to start the conversation. I guess perhaps because the English are interested in the weather and thais are interested in eating food?

Well that's a good description when it's used as an initial greeting. They use the Chinese equivelant a lot in Taiwan and I was always treating it as a serious question lol.

You would be able to say both.

 

You would be saying "Fucking dont like him/her" or " Fucking like eating somtam". Although the last one may sound a little extreme to say 555.

 

Just watch the movie "The Dorm" on Youtube. You will hear the kids saying these two words quite alot during the movie. It's especially popular among kids and teenagers to try and show how macho they are with their friends. Sort of like when we take the piss out of our mates over here when saying something like "fucking shut up", or "you fucking idiot" or whatever.

 

Great movie though.

55555.. what are you talking about. this is all guess work.

 

---------

 

yeah like i posted before. only use goo and meung with close friends.. you will hear alot of thais in a big group of friends talking like this.

 

i think using the word make it insulting ( if you make it SOUND insulting. )or if you use it right it can make a conversation very personal ( in a good way )..

 

lets say you are talking to your brother / cousin ...

 

example. " tom meung gaw ru wa goo lek mueng " = " tom you already know that i fucking love you "..

 

2# -" goo ja ka mueng " = " im gonna fucking kill you "...lol...

    • 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 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
