One Word A Day : ปะ

1. (verb) To patch; eg.

ปะ yaang = To patch tyre

 

2. (verb) To meet (someone) unexpectedly

něe seŭa ปะ jorrákây = (direct translation) To run away from a tiger but run into a crocodile/an alligator : equivalent English idiom is ‘Out of the frying pan into the fire’

 

3. (colloquial) Let’s go. Please note that for this meaning the tone is not exactly so low like in the video. It has to be closer to the 1st tone (or mid tone).
