As a multi-culture city, Halloween is also celebrated here in Bangkok. I would like to share Halloween related vocabulary
Thinking of Halloween, I am firstly thinking of GHOST! ผี [pĕe] I don’t like talking about ghost at all since I am super scared [กลัว glua] of them. มดกลัวผีมากค่ะ I don’t even watch ghost movies. [หนัง năng] มดไม่ดูหนังผีค่ะ
Next word must be “party“. These days Thai people use many English terms and the word party ปาร์ตี้ [bpaa-dtêe]
is one of them, but we change “p” sound to “bp” sound and “t” sound to “dt”
Halloween cannot be without pumpkin, am I right? By the way, I love eating pumpkin so much! มดชอบกินฟักทองมากค่ะ pumpkin in Thai is ฟักทอง [fúck-tong] I know what you are thinking. It sounds like you are saying F word in English lol You just have to make it high tone:)
Skeleton costume seems to be very popular on this day as well.
[เสื้อผ้า sûa-pâa] costume
And lastly, I think of “cobweb”. ใยแมงมุม [yai mang-mum]
ใย [yai] means web, and แมงมุม [mang-mum] is spider.
I hope you learned some new words from this blog:)
สุขสันต์วันฮัลโลวีนค่ะ HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
