How is the training going?

I had to top this post... at the museum at the Grand Palace, near the display of the Royal baby bassinet/crib thing, Tong taught us the word for "Green Melon." (There was one included in the display case.)

Green Melon must = Golden Pumpkin.

Tim, who is easily amused, and Tong, who definitely encouraged him, kept shouting the name in Thai every time a green melon was spotted over the next few days.

Hmm... green melon and if you mean water melon it's pronounce "Taeng Mo" in Thai. Pumpkin is "F$#k Tong". I'm just glad that the pumpkin is not our national fruit!
