Farang (ฝรั่ง)
Even if you can speak no other words of Thai, most European and American visitors to Thailand will quickly become familiar with the Thai word farang (often mispronounced (even by Thais) as falang.

Farang with a slightly trilled 'r' is the correct pronunciation.) It's basically used to describe caucasians, though African-Americans will sometimes also be known as farang or as farang dam ('black farang'). Farang is also the Thai word for the guava fruit, so you can expect to hear farang eating farang 'jokes' if you happen to purchase any.

Other Asians are generally known by their country of origin (e.g. kon jeen - "Chinese people", kon yee-bpun - "Japanese people"), while people from the Indian Subcontinent are often known as kairk (which translates as "guest"). Kairk is used to describe even fluent Thai speakers of Indian descent who have been living in Thailand for generations and consider themselves as Thai - obviously being referred to as a 'guest' in these circumstances, while not particularly offensive, is not exactly complimentary either.

Some people get very offended at being called farang, but whether it's an insult should or not really depends on the context. A few Thais who are uncomfortable with using it will say kon dtahng bpra-tayt ('people from other countries') instead, but this is still pretty rare. Farang is basically a neutral word, but people who respect you (or who should respect you) will not use it - if you hear a work colleague, for example, refer to you as farang they probably mean it as an insult while a taxi driver or market vendor doing the same is unlikely to mean any offense at all.
Quote:
ORIGIN OF THE WORD "FARANG"

A wide-spread belief in Thailand is that the word "farang" (Caucasian)
is derived from the French word "francais". This derivation is implausible
on phonetic and historical grounds. It is in fact a popular misconception.
It is true, however, that these words have the same ultimate source.

The word is attested in various forms in languages in Europe, Africa,
the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. It is clear that the
word orginated as "Frank" in Europe and spread eastwards along Muslim
trade routes.

Thai most likely borrowed the word from influential Muslim Persian or
Indian traders in the 17th century or even earlier. The Persian word was
"farangg". The term probably was used to refer to early Portuguese
traders and subsequently to all Europeans (ie., non-Muslims).

It is possible that the Thai word "farangset" ("French") is a blend
of the word "farang" and the French word "francais", ie., "farangset" is
actually derived from "farang", not vice versa. Certainly, the word
"farang" existed prior to, and independently of, "farangset".

The following is an edited collection of discussions on the origin of
the Thai word "farang". PART 1 includes the initial discussion on
soc.culture.thai (PART 1). I forwarded the topic to LINGUIST LIST for
information on the word in other languages (PART 2).

[Editor's note: Both articles are available for anonymous FTP as files
the-word-farang-1.txt and the-word-farang-2.txt from ftp.nectec.or.th
from directory /soc.culture.thai/SCTinfo/languages.]
im too lazy to go find the discussion on how to pronounce the low tone in the word

1) depends where
2) depends between 0 and 220usd ( penthouse models in luxury massage parlour )

Since massage parlour are the only "fixed price" field available ( one of the most expensive too ) here's some exemples of an expensive one:








D,2 000
M 3,500
L 3000
V 4000

in bahts obv

gogo girls are between 30 and 60
bargirls between 15 and 40
disco girls 15 and 60

Whole night obv

Easy to get laid for free, but sometimes you feel lazy

What does Ny mean? I thought it was New York Farang for the longest while but obviously that makes no sense.

Edit: I see you've finally fed the stupid monkeys. Was that pic taken on the hill in PHuket Town?

emmanuelle massage 3500 base price + 500 foreigner surcharge, i would recommend to give them a call and book the girl and a nice suite with jacuzzi 1000bahts, if they try to charge more tell them you paid this before obv.

It's just next to the emerald hotel on ratchadaphisek, i recommend you to check the hotel disco cause a lot of massage girls go there to party after work.

Tel. 02 27646904

have fun

I don't really care who it is, the shoop was requested from me. I did think it was you though, and so did the one requesting it, fwiw.

And no, I don't have to try owning you, since you do it by urself.

Jesus Miriam, I must've asked you at least 5 times if you wanted to go feed the monkeys with me. It's the hill in Phuket Town at the north end of the road that Osteria is on. It's not the other hill (rang hill). Watch out though, they will through **** at you.

And don't get a squirrel. They're disgusting. Get a baby monkey. Or even better, a baby gibbon.

"penis envy"? why would I envy anything about you?

We're still "trying" to make fun of that, bor_venin is trying to beat your sb stats though.
