I want a grand sound effect here, editor. a grand one. ‘To-Ngong-Ngi’ [At Ruen Ros Restaurant] OK 1..2..3 Ta-da! I would like to announce… This is… the most delicious stir-fried fish maw. The best in category. Wait..wait.. – We’re not doing a food review today, right?
– I recommend… Highly recommend! Welcome Mr. Tae! Not this one!
(He looks similar to Mr. Tae) Like the clip’s title… Today, our concept is young people care about politics. It may seem like a sensitive issue. But actually, it’s very useful if you understand. It’s in The Basic Education Core Curriculum too. What you gonna say? You have something to say, right? Oh..so delicious! This is Ruen Ros Restaurant. You can watch more in our fried rice clip. Very delicious. It’s our third time here. What about you, Siri? My fourth time. And you, Kim? Took your parents here? Never! Ungrateful! Let’s speak some Chinese. Your background.. Have you followed political news? I don’t really follow. Just sharing it online sometimes. Sharing political news? Where do we go now? Oh! a mushroom! – A mushroom’s on your arm!
– Look! A leech sucking here! What the… Will you get a chance to say? For me, I keep up with politics like.. 30% of it all. I know what’s going on, but not stressed. For me, about 10%. Like when it appears in YouTube Trending. The big news. The current issues in the society. For this clip, I’d like to set a rule. Please do not comment things like who’s a good guy or a bad guy. Because this matter is very subjective. We’re not insiders. We don’t know the truth. We’d better leave it or it’d be an endless argument. This clip is fact-based only. If there are issues in comments, – Bearhug’d like to disable comments.
– And our channel. – Hold on..
– No..No! – Let’s get started! Start now? These vocabularies are from King Prajadhipok’s Institute and Thai Parliament Museum. Let’s start with this word. We’ve heard this one a lot. A quorum.
(Ong-Pra-Chum) A quorum is present. A group of people in a meeting, discussing about the agenda. Your turn, Kan. OK. Not yet. A quorum is a checklist. How’s that? Like attendance call “Bom”? “Present” “Siri?” “Present” A quorum is present when
everything in a checklist is present. The ones chosen to represent us.
Members of parliament (MP), called for a meeting. Put simply,
a meeting of MPs. The answer is
the minimum number of voting members to conduct a meeting. That’s why they say the meeting can’t start
unless a quorum is present. Is my “checklist” right? Close enough. I’d say. Next one! Oh.. you all must be familiar with. – What’s that?
– Parliament. (Rath-Tha-Sa-Pa) A meeting venue for opposition parties and coalition parties. Frankly speaking, you two may stop. It’s like an answer already. ‘Rath’ means country. ‘Sa-pa’ means… What? So it’s like a meeting room for the country. And you, Kim? Same as him. You copycat! Like a meeting room – that holds many people.
– Can they eat there? There must be some rules against that. Can they sleep there? Sleeping? Who are you talking about? The answer is! A parliament is a national meeting place
of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Basically, it’s what San had said. The next one..you must have heard of it. Policy.
(Na-Yo-By) We’ve heard of it quite often but, we don’t really know the true meaning of it. Let’s translate each part. ‘Na’ is from the word “Na” (at). Don’t play it this way, bro. Na in Thai alphabet means “at”. So it means a starting point. Like the beginning and the end. and “Yo” means… Like in greetings. I see, Yo! And “By” is from “Bye”. Good bye! Put together, it means? What we think and present to the public, from the beginning until we get it done in the end. Na-Yo-By
(policy) At first, your concept seemed so nonsense. But you wrapped it up quite well. The answer is.. a course or a principle of action to adopt or take into consideration. Like what we have to do for the sake of our people. “Howling dogs” night’
(Kuen-Mha-Horn) It’s the night before an election day, when they buy votes. Yes, I think so. Candidates come at night
so the dogs howl. I see, werewolf. – It’s more than that.
-How? If candidates come to buy votes at night, the dogs will just bark, not howl. They seek help from monks. The monks will go up a bell tower and ring a bell as a sign to vote for that party. When the dogs see the monks with no shirt on, they go.. I did pay attention… I thought you were serious! The answer is what San had said. It’s the night before election. Why did you know many stuff? Easy one…”Protest”
-“I want to protest.” Yes. I want to protest. It means expressing opinions against what’s going on. I want to protest. Good one. Good one. Not yet! To protest means I wanna stop you there. Like, to brake? Yes. Brake. The answer is.. an action or an expression
of objection or a total disapproval, against an issue. Rama Medal.
(Rean-Rama) “I received the Rama medal too!” Right! What’s it? Like Michelin Star. Like Michelin. Like a medal to commemorate some distinction. Rama medal (The Honourable Order of Rama)
is a royal decoration. I think Prem was bestowed the highest level. Only a few people have this order. For what I know, it’s a badge, for sure. Just like Kan said. It’s one of royal decorations – established by Vajiravudh.
– King Rama VI. to be bestowed onto those who have rendered special military services. Next. A cobra.
(Ngu-Hao) Cobra! I know this one. A traitor. Someone who pretends to be your friend and stabs you in the back. I see..Bonking. – Betraying!
– Betraying! There’s a story behind Cobra. – What’s that?
-What’s that? Have you heard of the fable.. The farmer and the cobra. A cobra is like, a metaphor for disloyalty or betrayal. Falling into cool water, snakes are fed…? Fed..Fed.. Freshened! Falling into a bin? F..F..Filthy! So, a cobra means, MP who’s in one party – but votes for the opposite party.
– OK. Something like that. If it’s my turn, I’d like to announce.. “stir-fried fish maw”. I will declare… Next one is.. “Pea Pod”
(Fak-Tua) Pea Pod? I guess it means a policy with some hidden agenda. I don’t know. I give up. And you, Kim? This word’s from foreigners. Like when they get
pissed at the party, they say… F*ck y’all. F*ck y’all. Like they’re angry. The answer is a politician who votes like others without consideration. It’s like copying an answer. You vote this one? Ok then, me too. Next one…”Put in neutral” An old political vocab. Do you know? – I don’t.
– I really don’t know this one. Just guess. Useless. I guess. – Seem to be useful but it’s useless.
– That’s close! A policy that leads to nowhere? “Put in neutral” means when you can’t move forward. Politically… Be it a policy or a project, no action. The answer is… “Put in neutral” is when an official is inactive. Be present with only body, no soul or spirit. Next…”Cockroach”
(Ma-Lang-Sab) Right. What does Cockroach mean? A dirty person? Like Kim. Cockroach! Cockroach! I guess it means hard to die. In every election, there’s always this party in. Like Kan said, Actually, a cockroach is a living fossil. A primitive animal that still exists. For example, 20 years ago,
a guy was voted into parliament. Today, he’s still here. You’re almost right, Mr. Kim. A cockroach means a long-established party that stands many political crises. Stand the test of time. The next is.. “Honest mistake” This is quite a formal term. Is it Getsunova’s song? “Unmistakably mistaken” Like when you’re late
and you blame the traffic. – “It’s the bad traffic.”
-I see. – that made me late.”
– Reasonable. I think it’s like… Error. Error. Like you do wrong unknowingly. You step on an ant. It dies. Unintentionally. But it dies anyway. An excuse you make in the court or whatever. “I have a decent reason for doing wrong.” and I can get away with it
because it’s reasonable. The answer is, a guilt you blame on someone else. Like you cheated but you said
it’s someone else? Yes. It’s an “honest mistake”. And you can be justified. Something like that. This clip’s so stressful. So stressed! – It’s hard.
– So so stressful! [Let’s take a break] – Let’s break with inserts so our viewers are not too stressed.
– A food insert. Here it is. An insert of food shot. Food shot inserts. Kan Atthakorn insert… He’s stressed! That was too stressful and too hard. Let’s change the set of questions to be more relevant and up-to-date. Recently, our PM has made a policy statement. Our current PM, Uncle Tuu. And many people made fun of the words he said and, someone did write a vocabulary for Uncle Tuu’s words. Oh..really? We’ll play with this vocab and guess the meaning of Uncle Tuu’s words. Is it gonna be that hard? LIke, he had to read and while he was reading, there were always protests, teases, and stuff. Tongue twisted? The first word is.. The editor will put it on screen. I’ll put it on the top left. What’s that? Boy-Sat? Boy-Sat This is a word, right? Not a sentence?
– Yes, a word. At first, I think it’s “Bor-Ri-Sat”
(a company) But why would he mention that in parliament, right? So, your answer is…? Bor-Ri-Sat (a company), maybe.
– And you, Karn? Why so similar?! Imagine what he’d said. [confused] – “Bor-Ri-Sat”. I’ll go for “Bor-Ri-Sat” too.
– And you, Kim? Not “Bor-Ri-Sat” Here we go. – I think it’s from “Bork-Sub”.
– ‘Bork-Sub” Like when you wanna tell someone a word. The answer is… “Bor-Ri-Sat”
(a company) The next word is… “Larm-Tee-Chuay” “Ratha-Mon-Tri-Chuay”
(Deputy Minister) Oh! “Ratha-Mon-Tri-Chauy”! If I’m right,
does it mean I’m a gibberish? “Larm-Tri”, maybe. Right. I think it’s “Ratha-Mon-Tri-Chuay'”too. The answer is “Ratha-Mon-Tri-Chuay-Wa-Karn-Kra-Suang”
(Deputy Minister) Understand every word! So it means he’s actually communicative! The next one… “Pa-Na” This one’s hard. If it’s “Pi-Cha-Ra-Na” (consider),
then I know, but this.. Challenging one, right? I’m so glad! “Pat-Ta-Na”
(to develop) “Pun-Na-Na”
(to describe) What context would it be? Thoroughly describe? Maybe! Make sense. “Pak-Nan”
(long break) – ‘Pak-Nan’
– ‘Pak-Nan’ The answer is… “Pat-Ta-Na”
(develop) Gosh..Why do I get him? The next word is… “La-Ban” “Lob-Ban”? It’s “La-Ban” – San, you go first.
– “Ratha-Ban”, maybe. (government) “Na-Tang”
(window) – Wait. “La-Ban” and “Na-Tang”?
– “Na-Tang”? How could it be? “Let’s close a window.” I see. “Let’s help close the window!” – It’s too bright.
“La-Ban” is from “Pid-Kon-La-Ban”
(everyone closes 1 window) – Right! The sun’s in my eyes!
– The sunlight disturbs my policy statement! THERE’S NO WINDOW, YOU JERK! “Ra-By”
(drain) The flood! Drain flood water! The answer is “Ratha-Ban”
(government) – I’m his die-hard fan!
– San got all answers right! The last one.. If you can answer this one, you’re unbelievable.
I’m still confused with this word. I want a grand sound effect here, editor. A grand one. “To-Ngong-Ngi” Imagine Uncle Tuu saying this. “To-Yang”
(argue) TOYOTA! TOYOTA-Ngi? Like that. “Torb-Ngun-Ngi” (excuses) Like… “You ramble on with excuses in parliament,” “Don’t do that.” “Don’t ramble excuses.” The answer.. The word “To-Ngong-Ngi” that PM Prayuth had said, means… here and there. I almost get it right! You have to understand
when it comes to policy statement, there are hundreds of pages,
he has to speed up. [Enough, dude.] My hands are so tired. So hard. Guys, think about it.
We’ve filmed this clip for less than an hour. For those in parliament, they have to sit like this
for like 10 hours! Think about it. I said I followed just only top trending in YouTube. It’s about all the fun and entertaining, right? It’s noting wrong if you don’t follow the news. Because I’m doing OK not focusing on that. For me, I follow
political news. I really do. But I watch it from many sources because I don’t believe in media impartiality. And I think.. no one is 100% good or bad. We are both. Listen with empathy. Then you decide which side you take based on their actions. “To-Ngong-Ngi” This lunch’s on me. I can’t think clearly now. Go to “Larm-Tee-Chuay”
(Deputy Minister) “To-Ngong-Ngi” So you know how’s “La-Ban”
(government) We’d like to apologize if there were any mistakes in this clip. Good bye. Keep “Pa-Na”
(develop) and audiences will “Pi-Na”
(consider) Go pay the bill. “To-Ngong-Ngi” Where? “To-Ngong-Ngi” Thank you, Mr. Tae.
