ซาว//saao means the action of using a hand or two to swirl and rinse uncooked rice before cooking. I usually do this at least twice before putting it into a rice cooker.

Now, did you get it? Ultrasound = Ultra(man)saao = อุลตร้า(แมน)ซาว

Father’s Day :: วันพ่อ วันของพ่อ

I remembered writing an entry on father not long ago. And here I am again. I feel like one full year has just zoomed by me. They said that if you felt that way, most likely it’s because you were enjoying yourself. I think it’s true. I love what I am doing. 🙂

Anyway, as usual, this is a special entry for Father’s Day, December 5. Let’s learn some interesting vocabulary:

December Treats

I have been overwhelmed by another assignment as well as my trip to Bangkok in the past two weeks. To make up for the missing entries, I will do up my articles two times a week in the month of December. So stay tuned every Monday and Thursday, 8pm, for updates!

ส้อม vs. ซ่อม = sôrm vs. sôrm ???

 

 

 

ส้อม vs. ซ่อม

They are homophones, the same pronunciation but different meaning.

ส้อม//sôrm means a fork (type of kitchen utensil)

ซ่อม//sôrm means to to fix, to repair. In the school context, it means the second test that you have to take if you do not manage to pass the first one. However no matter how many marks you get from this second test, your grade will always be just enough to pass.
