Confused again …….
I am a ‘confused’ child in Thailand.
Language confusion. Culture confusion. Confusion of
smile the 13 smiles. Not only that, I am also confused with Thai names!
“Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, be strong and keep reminding your self that everything happens for a reason.” John Mayer
Back home, I was told that I am good at remembering names. I remember the names of people I met many moons ago. But it’s a struggle here, with good reason.
The International Mother’s Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, including Malaysia. But Thailand, like some countries celebrate it on various days.
Booo! No Mother’s Day Google doodle for Thailand!
I ain’t seen nothing like Thai food customization. Ordering here gives me cold sweat. I once declared “I hope that one day I am fluent enough to order food delivery here!”
You gotta watch this Nelson Howe video to understand the meaning of Thai food customization. He rose to fame when his Thai swear words video went viral last year, don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂
After one and a half years living in Thailand, I still find the multi-layer Thai culture complex and baffling. What you see is not what you get. With each experience, there is something new to discover. Thailand is where you want to be to cultivate lifelong learning. I bet you don’t get this from travel guide book yo.
