      Sawatdee ka Kun Lum Yun Chong,

      “gin” is a spoken language commonly used in everyday conversation. “rap-bpra-taan” also means to eat, but it is super super formal. You won’t hear any Thai uses that word. You can use the word “taan” which is short from “rap-bpra-taan”, less formal yet still polite:)
