Have you ever been called "Ah" in Khmer?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

If you explained something and I understood, then you are good at explaining. :) My wife explained somethings to me and I don't get it all...

also is this the same Pluer as Pan Ron sings in the song Rom Min Ch'aet Te
"Jong tae rom rom rom rom tul pluer"

also what does Ch'aet mean?
Hehehe... as I told you i'm not good at wring. Maybe Pler means stupid, but in the song is another word.
Rom tul pluer means dance till sun rises.
Ch'aet means full.
Pleur also means 'crazy' so it might be a bad reference (I haven't heard the song) to crazy love.

As Samouth mentioned above, they are different sound and meaning.
