Day 05: 30 Days Of Blogging Of Honesty And One Dare Or Why I Love Thais

I’m really impressed with myself, how I seem to commit to the 30 Days Of Blogging Honesty And One Dare blog event. I even manage to squeeze the time to go around the other participants’ blogs and see what they have to say… Oh, I hope I don’t jinx myself by saying this! πŸ˜‰

For Day 05, I’m not sure if I understand the question correctly so I’d just go with it literally:

Day 05 β€” This is embarrassing but on average I cause the toilet to overflow about this many times a year because of deposits I made…

Hmmm… This is tough because I have not put much thought into it. On good days, I do not really find myself thinking of my elimination patterns, do you? So I guess the short answer is only average, like how much the normal person does. I’m no one special in the world of GIT.

But the interesting thing I have to say about this happened a few months ago. Our Thai friend came to visit and she was teaching my sisters and I some Thai words and vice versa.

My sister was pointing out how to say body parts in our language and she was telling our Thai friend that kilay means eyebrow in Tagalog.Β Once our Thai friend heard that, she laughed so bad because she said kilay in Thai means… running shit (a bout of diarrhea)!

Oh man, that was crazy, really epic. I love Thais. πŸ˜€

  1. It’s a DOMO!! with a moustacheee!!!
    I scrolled through like pages and pages of domos for my friend’s bday last month, so.. (I’m easily excitable haha)
    but hahahahaa now every time you and your sis say eyebrow, you’re gonna crack up πŸ˜€

  2. now I am envious. All of my friends abroad speaks either english or filipino, I will add “having a friend who doesn’t speak my language” on my bucket list next year. πŸ˜€

  3. The kilay translation is really funny…sometimes one word in another language means something different…I have noticed that most Japanese names have moto and in Swahili this means hot. I heard of a Japanese guy called yamamoto and this in Swahili means hot meat…translation is really funny.

  4. I’m impressed with myself too. Usually I have a hard time actually sticking to a schedule and I don’t feel bad if I don’t post for a few days. It’s nice with this though because there are people out there anticipating you posts and you want to take part in the discussion too! It’s also nice to not have to think about what you want to write. πŸ™‚

    PS: I think diarrhea is a hilarious word in any language. XD

  5. when it’s not a busy time, i’d commit to blogging daily in my personal blog. keep this up. i had fun reading your take on the situations.

    when i was taking M.A. classes in UST there were Americans and Africans in my class. one of the african’s name was BABOY, yes baboy. we all chuckled when he introduced himself on that first day, but we never said anything about it to him the entire semeter. we are after all in graduate school, we’re supposed to be mature enough to handle it, right?
