sanuk = happy, merry, fun and suenug = dog sound a bit similar in deed. Wife, girls, a difference of opinion, preference?

I might have told this old story before here already but I can't remember. I've told it before somewhere...

... about dogs and tones and girlfriends and vocal errors in pronunciation ...

So there I was at my favourite restaurant in Nonthaburi, Muno's, waiting for my girlfriend to arrive, and I knew the waiter well enough for those last few weeks since he started there, and he was concerned that I had not ordered a meal after 30 minutes of sitting there, peering over the balcony and drinking Singha, and all I managed to say was "Pooying maa cha-cha" which can mean many things depending on the way it is voiced.

I got the impression by the way he frowned and then smiled that while trying to explain to him that I was waiting to order until my girlfriend arrived, (and that she was 15 minutes late), that I'd just told him that women are slow dogs.

I think that must be why he almost laughed, but I don't know if he was thinking of his own girlfriend at that moment. :lol:

Since you mentioned, in what country a girlfriend is refer to as a horse in slang? I know in English, words such as chick, cow, broad, etc... are used as slangs to refer to a female gender, depend on which country one is in. But I don't recall if Thai language has slang for anything during my time there which was a long time ago. Perhaps there is now, if you know?

Jai Yen Yen
means that you want the one you are speaking to has to cool down if he is angry about something.

Th oposit ist Jai roan, which means hot heart or somebody is getting very quickly angry.
