Thai Nicknames 2: Kiss

Thai Nicknames 2: Kiss

Just outside Chiang Mai there is a waterfall that is a place few foreigners visit, but plenty of Thai people go there for picnics.

Thai people picnicking

I met this cute couple with their baby and practiced speaking a bit of Thai with the general baby type questions: How old is s/he? What’s his/her name? Why (pointing to the gloves)?As you do.

One of the husband’s friends was this guy named Kiss.

After asking him what his name was, eventually he blew a kiss and I understood his name was Kiss. Being polite he said, “Kiss khap.”

Gotta love the Asian style poses

Just another outstanding Thai nickname to add to the list: A man in his 20s named Kiss.
