Thai animal sounds.

The father in law asks me.."Hey Phil, can you call Diat the dog?"

"Sure Por". I squat down, click my fingers, and whistle.."Whoot, whoot, here boy, come here Diat" Click, click.

Por is laughing himself silly, the dog is giving me a stupid look. "Ok Por, show me how". He lets out a bizarre "Eh, eh, eh". Diat comes running, along with 4 of his mates.

"Do you know what sound a dog makes?" asks Por. "Sure" I reply, "woof. woof' or "bark, bark". No, wrong. Apparently a dog goes "ho,ho,ho,ho"

And a rooster? No "cock a doodle doo" in Thailand. They wake you up with "ek, ek, ek, eky, eeeeek"

A Monkey? "diiet, diiet, diiet".

I'm sure there are many more...

I played Old McDonald had a farm in a class before and the noises the kids were using were the weirdest I had ever heard. I was like, "What the heck is that animal"! Very different ideas about animals sounds compared to back home.
