Place palms together
Lift up to face with thumbs near your nose
Bow ever so slightly
And say "Sawadee"
I think it is beautiful and so exotic from our usual "hey" with a touch of a ghetto head nod. Wai-ing makes me feel a little more Asian and Japanese-y (it's a word I'm sure) The best part is when little kids do it, absolutely adorable. Often the little kids blow you kisses too, love it!
Also to show even more respect you really draw out the female/male endings (Ka/Krap) and do it in a slightly annoying complaining valley girl accent "Sawadee-Kaaaaaaaaa" There now ou have it!
These are just a few things we have learned while hitting the streets of Pattaya. Here are some recent pictures of what kind of mischief we have been up to:
This is Malcom, an English brother with his awesome Kawasaki...yes, this is his service vehicle! (Boys look at what you can take out I the ministry!! Sorry all you moms)
This is where we took break today, notice the shoes? At home it's usually "no shirt, no shoes, no service" but here "no shoes...come on in"
You can never be too surprised as to what will be hanging next to the laundry....
We witness to everyone we pass I. The territory. This is a local Thai brother witnessing to a motorbike taxi driver.
Directly across the way this cute little lady was fully concentrated on reading he Truth Tract. A good percentage of the people we place tracts with will literally sit there and read the whole thing or even read it out loud to a friend.
Now that's a proper baby cradle :)
That's all folks! See you next time! (Side note...the brother on the far right...side side note he drives the coolest bike...is named Bond and his dad used to be a witch doctor before he came into the truth!)
