If it's to break YOUR fall, of course. Anything for you, you know that. Smiley

In the rural areas, the inhabitants are classed as, 'Tai ban nork'.

What's the urban equivalent? Are cosmopolitans classed as, 'Tai nai meang'?

It sounds right to me. But, maybe I'm wrong.

Yes "tai nai meuang" refers to urban citizens.

There's no middle. You're either classified as being a rural (ban nork) or urban (nai meuang) person.

Really? Is that right?

Here's something that has popped into mind just now:

Are all Tai nai meuang Hi-So, and all Tai ban nork Lo-So?

No, we're not all rich, or act rich in the city.

There are also Hi-So people in rural areas.

Is that so?

How can I - a peasant offspring - upgrade myself into Hi-So status like you?

You're into "gloves" when touching food, so you already have a trait of a "Hi-So".

Is this a typical Hi-So home in Laos?

Well, it certainly looks like a big house owned by someone who is wealthy.

How much would it cost to own a house like this in Laos?

How about the furniture?

It depends where it's located. Houses in the city of Vientiane are very expensive.

The name of the video is "jennilao thakhek", so if that house is located in Thakhek, which is a rural town in southern Laos, it wouldn't be as expensive compared to houses in the city.

Alright, how much would it cost for a house like this in Vientiane City?

I want a house with similar decor: littered with an excess amount of furniture.
