Day in Lao is " Wan" and Month is Deurn and Year is Pii But the word order is quite opposite from English. For example: Monday - Wan Jan- ວັນຈັນ Here are the days of the week. Wan Khan ວັນຄານ - Tuesday Wan Phoud ວັນພຸດ - Wednesday Wan Pha Hud ວັນພະຫັດ -Thursday Wan Souk ວັນສຸກ - Friday Wan Sao ວັນເສົາ - Saturday Wan Aar Thid ວັນອາທິດ - Sunday Let's look at months of the year. There are two way to communicate about months. Easy way if you learn about numbers you can just use number after the word month which is " Deurn " ເດືອນ and the other one is just remember each month's names. I am listing easy way, the formal way,phonetic and Lao written words respectively. Deurn Song ( 2 )- ( Deurn) Koum Pa- ເດືອນກຸມພາ February Deurn Sam ( 3 )- ( Deurn) Mee Na- ເດືອນມີນາ March Deurn See ( 4 )- ( Deurn) Me Sa- ເດືອນເມສາ April Deurn Haa ( 5 )- ( Deurn) Pird Sa Pa- ເດືອນພຶດສະພາ May Deurn Hok ( 6 )- ( Deurn) Mee Thou Na- ເດືອນມີຖຸນາ June Deurn Jed ( 7 )- ( Deurn) Kor La Kod- ເດືອນກໍລະກົດ July Deurn Pad ( 8 )- ( Deurn) Sing Ha- ເດືອນສິງຫາ August Deurn Kao ( 9 )- ( Deurn) Kan Ya- ເດືອນກັນຍາ September Deurn Sib ( 10 )- ( Deurn) Tou La- ເດືອນຕຸລາ October Deurn Sib Ed ( 11 )- ( Deurn) Pa Jik Ka- ເດືອນພະຈິກກາ November Deurn Sib Song ( 12 )- ( Deurn) Thun Wa- ເດືອນທັນວາ December In Lao we write Day/ Month/ Year ,which is different from US as well ( Month/Day/Year). It took me a while to get used to but I still mess up once in a while if I have to date any paper. Pii Song Pun Sib Ha -ປີສອງພັນສິບຫ້າ. I will do another post more about numbers but if you need to learn from 1-10 here is the post . Here are some samples on using day/month/ year.
Please write it in Lao or phonetic word for this phrase. Wednesday, August 16th 2016.

Let's the spring break begins. St. George Utah here we come, this is a small town in Southern Utah- 2 hours north of Las Vegas. My husband grew up there, where his friends are still living there and have kids the same ages as ours. It is not only our spring break vacation but also as part of preparing to move there so that we can see the town and meet up with old friends. We went there two months ago and we had decided that we are moving.
Why do we want to move from California? you ask: Even though there are average 350-day sunshine in a year, the beaches are just within 15 minutes, the parks are every corners of our neighborhood , and Disneyland is just 20 minutes away. Kids also go to great school .These benefits do not really make us happy ( I and my husband).
Why are we not happy? you ask: Living in California is so frustrated. The housing costs us 50 % of our income ( one income ). My husband works too hard to sustain us but has no time to rest and enjoy his growing kids. Our family is growing so does expenses. Beside we are in the rat race.
Why do we choose St. George? you ask:
There are many reasons. First is low rent because we are going to be renting part of our in law's house ( basement). Secondly we are hoping to have a slow pace- family oriented life. Lastly the cost of living is going to be cut down a lot if my husband keeping the same job.
If everything goes well as plan we could or would be able to save enough for down payment for our first home soon. The move is just a step closer to live simple. Here is what I wrote about how to start living simply into minimalists. What are you going to do during spring break? Please comments below and give me a share if you think it will help anyone in someway.
