  1. Hello Mia, I think that บัตรประชาชน is bàt prà-cha-chon (not bàt prà-cha-chan).
    Thank for your video. All the best for you. And have good Buddhist days on next monday and tuesday.

    • Bernard, สายตาคุณดีมากๆค่ะYou eyes vision is excellent :-)
      Thank you for reminding me about the Buddhist days next week, maybe I will film an interesting VDO then.

  2. Getting a checkup in a foreign country can be difficult. You can always ask for someone that can understand you but carrying a copy of your health information can be a lot easier.
