Q: Hello Chayaphum school friends. We are practicing how to say cat (maeow) and dog (su-nak) in Thai. We did a survey to see how many of our students have maeow and how many have su-nak. Sahm have su-nak and hok have maeow.
We forgot to ask about the toilets. We want to know if they flush like our American toilets do.
In our classroom, we are learning to make bread so we think about food a lot. We would like to know what foods are popular for kids in Thailand.
We also learn ways to take care of ourselves in school and one way to take care of ourselves is to dress ourselves. How do you get materials to make clothes?
This week Hem and Geep helped answer your questions. In the video they both say "Nong" before their names. This is like saying "little sister." Saying "Nong Hem" pretty much means "little sister Hem."
In the video, I asked Hem and Geep if they think American clothing and Thai clothing are the same. They said "no." What do you think? The students here wear uniforms at school. Here are some pictures of students in their uniforms:
Hem's favorite dessert is "kanome dtaan" (toddy palm cake). Here is a recipe for kanome dtaan.
Geep's favorite dessert is "kanome kluay" (steamed banana cake). Here is a recipe for kanome kluay.
My favorite dessert is "kanome krok" (coconut cakes). Here is a recipe for kanome krok.
This website lists many popular Thai desserts also: Thai Desserts.
Lastly, Hem wants to know if there are rainbows in America. She is also curious about what types of fish there are. Where we live in Thailand, fish from the rivers and ponds are a big food source. Do you remember the pond in the video of the wat?
