..your family on the beach goes into the water fully clothed, the concept of swimsuits are lost to them

..Your mom asks you if you want to "NYUM BAI," you ask her what's for dinner, she says "BAI..." then you have to further ask "...rice with what?" in order to find out what the real main course is.

..On that note, bai is always the main course and meat and everything else are just sides. That's why your bowl of rice is always filled with barely any room for anything else...

...your parents like to mix the color up and you have to play the guessing game..such as blue and green if u get the wrong one they smack u and call u stupid what i usually do is bring both color..than i get smacked anyways so either way i get smacked..there is no pleasing the parents.. are related to EVERYONE....

..parents gamble all night long than complain that they have no money

I love Bok Mathea mostly with mangoes; the crunchy, sour oness. Yumm.
& ".. your name is almost the same as your brother's, sister's, and cousin's names."
I'm the 7th child of my family and my brother is the 6th. I'm the last child BTW.
My dad named my brother Prakab and my name Prapey.
You see the similar parts?
