Stuart Jay Raj TV เหนือชั้น 1000แปลก Vietnam Suối Tiên Buddhist Water Fun Park – Eng Subs 2 of 2

เหนือชั้น1000แปลก – สวนสนุกแนวธรรมะ Suoi Tien Par คุณเจ พาไป โฮจิมินห์ พบเรื่องแปลก นั่นคือ สวนสนุกแนวธรรมะ Suoi Tien Park ซึ่งเป็นสวนสนุก ที่ตกแต่งบรรยากาศเหมือนวัด In this episode of Neua Chan Phan Plaek, I’ve tripped across to Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam to take a look at a fun park with a twist. For those who have been following my language development progress over the years, you’d know that I dabbled in Vietnamese a couple of years back for a few weeks, then for another week or so during Miss Universe in Nha Trang in 2008. Well, this trip was a great opportunity to dust some of the cobwebs off of some of the language that I’d played with before and see if people actually understood me when I opened my mouth! During the clip here, you’ll see me asking several questions in Vietnamese. This is a milestone for me. Although my level of Vietnamese is quite dismal at the moment, I really believe that if I stay there for a few weeks, it wouldn’t take much to bring it up to par. Something just ‘clicked’ over this last trip, and I hope I’ll be able to spend a lot more time there in the future! Check out more about these and other language, cultural and mind adventures in my blog – http://stujay.blogspot.com If you know of any extraordinary / amazing / bizarre people, places or things that you think would make a great story, send me an email and tell me about it. We might be able to make a trip out there and cover it for the show! – stujay@hotmail.com
