I am regret that i am not spend time to learn Russia language.
Normally, i go to site with group of people.
So, i lazy to learn and someone will take care of me.
Now, i feel the difficult when i alone here.
Language is very important media to express your feeling.
I just come back from my dinner.
How i handle especially i'm ordering food?
Lucky that the menu is full of photos.
I'm pointing on the photos that i would like to order.
(Sure, i have better food here cause i take my dinner at restaurant :) )
A lady waiter come to serve me.
After pointing all the food, i plan to have a tea.
(I usual to order Coke - easy everyone know it)
(Today, i am cough hence cannot drink coke)
I : "茶!"
(It is similar to Chinese pronunciation 茶 = tea )
(I guess she ask me green tea or black tea)
Hence, when she finish talking then i say.
I : "好lanso"
Waiter: "&^*(^**& = Black tea"
(I am acting that i understand Russia...) wakaka
I say again : "好lanso"
(好 is mean good in Chinese + lanso = Ok or Good in Russia)
After few minutes,
The waiter takes a cup to hot water with black tea.
See, i can speak Russia here :P
When i'm drinking,
The waiter come again and talk to me:
(This time i cannot use any logic to predict what she say..."
Anyhow, i reply her.
I : "好lanso"
(I think should be no problems gua...)
"Soup of the day"
"Spaghetti with fish"
I have order another BBQ pork as well.
Wait and wait ...
Take me 15 to 20 minutes...
Now, i start thinking what waiter told me just now:
There are 2 possibility what she said:
a) "My dear customer, the BBQ take quite long time, it is ok for you?"
b) "My dear customer, the BBQ just not available, it is ok for you?"
I regret to say "好lanso" to her.
(Next time, if don't know please don't pretend ok)
After 30 minutes,
My BBQ pork is served.
So, i guess what (a) is the question she want to ask me :)
When i plan to start enjoy the BBQ pork,
I found out that only spoon and knife on my tables.
"Where is my FORK?"
I need to ask my translator tomorrow - How to speak fork in Russia"
Don't ask me how i finish my BBQ pork... :(
After finish, when i saw the waiter...
I say :"Short"
Waiter reply :"Short ar"
(Short is mean bill in russia)
The bill is around 774 rubble ~ RM77.40.
And, i pay 1000 rubble and wait for the change.
The waiter come again and bring nothing to me and say:
(After learn the lesson before... i will not say 好lanso anymore!"
I quickly reply to her "poor 好"
(poor 好 is not good)
And, She returns the change for me.
Sorry, i don't know what you say...
It is very important to learn Russia language
if you are alone!
(Lesson to children, let them independent hence they can learn somethings faster)
The worst time after this is ...
How should i take this cough medicine???
All in Russia language!
ANYONE CAN HELP ME!
P/S: Don't worry, i have ask translator how to take the medicine :P
