How to Pronounce Suvarnabhumi?

When me and my wife were discussing whether she would like to go Suvarnabhumi or Don Mueang airport...

Me: So you want SU VAARR NUB HU MI (slowly read out loud) airport?
Wife: (laughs) SU WARR NA POOM.
Me: Why POOM?
Wife: Thais say SU WARR  NA POOM.
Me: Ok...

Now I know why that taxi driver in Bangkok gave me that weird look when I told him to go SU VAARR NUB HU MI, and why my wife chuckled in a corner...

Hi, I am grateful to have come across your website. Its heartwarming to read your story. Firstly, congratulation to your family as Thai women have left extremely good impression in me. My current partner is a Thai Chinese too, we have yet to get married but we hope to do so soon. My blog (Post title: there will be a beautiful woman who believes in you) shared the various wonderful things she has done for me that touches my heart (to think I was once a misogynist). Secondly, the current economic situation is quite bleak, due to the huge income gap (poor gets poorer). It is very difficult for a person to retire or care for his family based on pure savings and labour alone. Anything can happen and income stops when a person stop working, so it is always safer to have a secondary source of income beside labour so as to protect our love ones. Thirdly, I can relate to and rejoice in the love shared between you and your wife. I know you want your wife to be happy and protected. For the happiness my love has given me I like to extend this to other single men who may have dejected and defeated. I believe everyone deserve to have a good partner. I am currently running two projects liveagain.asia and moringa.sg Whether I succeed or not is one thing. I want to succeed so I may help other men to succeed too. You mentioned that you are not cut out to be an entrepreneur, I believe you can. Its just "how". If you are open (not compromising your current job), I like to work together with you to see how we can work something for the local guys and thai community here. I have some plans, there are many possibilities. You can contact me too at colin.kee at liveagain dot asia thanks
