สบาย สบาย - Sabai Sabai - It's OK

 Sunday night I learnt that there's something else Thai  I like very much besides Tomyum.

 And it's all due to kama's sultry rendition of this delightful Thai song called Sabai Sabai  at her karaoke sarang at the Lake Club, Kuala Lumpur (not Putrajaya).


Oh, kama and Pak Abu had hosted a bloggers' get-together to celebrate the birthday of the one and only mamasita mamamia - who'll probably blog all about it soon, in fact I'm sure she will.

Meantime why don't you sing along to the youtube version -  it's a mouthful for me and am still not sabai-sabai yet....




สบาย สบาย
sà-baai sà-baai
It's OK

ถูก ใจ ก็ คบ กัน ไป
tòok jai gôr kóp gan bpai
If we like each other then we'll go together.

เพราะ ฉัน เป็น คน ไม่สน อะไร
prór chăn bpen kon mâi-sŏn à-rai
Because I'm the kind of person who isn't interested in anything (in particular),

ไม่เคย คิด กวนใจ ใคร
mâi koie kít guan jai krai
I never think of bothering anybody.

สบาย สบาย
sà-baai sà-baai
It's OK.

หาก เรา จะ คบ กัน ไป คบ กัน ไป
hàak rao jà kóp gan bpai kóp gan bpai
If we go on together, go on together

ฉัน ขอ เพียง ความรัก และ จริงใจ ไม่เคย ต้องการ อะไร
chăn kŏr piang kwaam rák láe jing jai mâi koie dtông gaan à-rai
I'll only ask for love and sincerity. I won't ever want anything (else).

*[สบาย สบาย
sà-baai sà-baai
It's OK.

แล้ว เธอ ก็ คง เข้าใจ
láew ter gôr kong kâo jai
And you'll probably understand,

เรา นั้น จะ อยู่ · เรียนรู้ กัน ไป
rao nán jà yòo · rian róo gan bpai
We'll live and learn together.

จะ ทุกข์ จะ สุข เพียงไหน
jà túk jà sùk piang năi
However much pain and pleasure there is,

สบาย สบาย
sà-baai sà-baai
it'll be OK.

แม้ วันใด ที่ ใจ เธอ เปลี่ยน
máe wan dai têe jai ter bplìan
Even if someday your heart should change,

ไม่เห็น จะ แปลก
mâi hĕn jà bplàek
It won't seem strange

เมื่อ รู้ จาก ปาก ว่า คิด จะ จาก ฉัน ไป
mêua róo jàak bpàak wâa kít jà jàak chăn bpai
when I know from your lips that you think you'll leave me.

ก็ คง เข้าใจ · ว่า เธอ ต้อง ไป
gôr kong kâo jai · wâa ter dtông bpai
I'll probably understand that you must go.

ก็ คง เสียใจ และ คง เสียดาย
gôr kong sĭa jai láe kong sĭa daai
I'll probably feel sorry, probably feel that it's a shame.

แต่ก็ยัง สบาย
dtàe gôr yang sà-baai
But I'll still be OK. ]

หาก เธอ จะ ทิ้ง กัน ไป
hàak ter jà tíng gan bpai
Should you want to throw it away,

เพราะ ฉัน เป็น คน ไม่ ฝืนใจ ใคร
prór chăn bpen kon mâi fĕun jai krai
Because I'm not a person who forces anybody.

ก็ คง เลิกรา กัน ไป แบบ สบาย
gôr kong lêrk raa gan bpai bàep sà-baai
We'll probably break up and go our (separate) ways, OK.

สบาย สบาย
sà-baai sà-baai
It'll be OK. (That's cool with me;I'm comfortable with that.)

สบาย สบาย Sabai Sabai It's OK

sà-baai sà-baai

Oh! I haven't heard this song for a long time. Love it! Thanks, Zen :)

Zendra-Maria said...

You should have heard Puteri, Naz - better than the original - straight from the heart kind *woop-woop*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Zendra,
Err...post the video lorrr!!! purrr...meow!

NanaDJ said...

Zen,
Puteri can beat some of our so called singers hands down. She is so versatile, I only have to mention Keroncong and before you know it there she was with "Sepasang Mata Bola". Next time I must ask her to sing "Sampul Surat".
I have heard her sing Sabai Sabai at our previous session and fell in love with the song

mamasita said...

I love this Sabai2 song very much! Now and then, May our aerobics teacher will pasang this song..masatu my energy pun ada xtra power! hehehe

Zendra-Maria said...

Cat,
I was too saplai
the song was so nai
sampai lemah longlai
plus camera tak bawak mai
so no vid for your tai-tai

meowai!!!

Zendra-Maria said...

Psst NanaDJ, I think it was this song that won Pak Abu over or was it vice-versa?

Yes she must do the "Sampul Surat" song and I bet rock-and-roll is just another piece of cake for her.... speaking of which, the birthday cake was simply perfect - smooth, velvety, and subtly flavoured - perfecto! Thanks NanaDJ - dapat kat mana yer?

Zendra-Maria said...

mamasita, first time I heard it was that night, am surprised that thai numbers can be kinda catchy - most that I heard, and not that many tho, all were so grating to the ears like this one we do for line-dancing:

Hot Chilli Chacha

But my perception changed overnight

Tommy Yewfigure said...

Sa-baai Zen,

Wah the guy sang that song with so much feeling & the lyrics r quite meaningful too, but I still don’t get whether it’s a ‘breakup’ song or’ please don’t leave me song’ or ‘love me just as I am’ song; very Confucius lah.

If only all of us can say ‘It’s ok, doesn’t matter lah’, the world will be a better place. It’s like I said. “It’s ok, I like u and when the time comes, I’ll make it quick & painless so u don’t have to suffer more than it’s required.”….muahaha.

Here’s another Confucius message from Women;

It’s NOT Right but it’s OK

Why lah like that one????

Cheers,
Tommy

P/S – Glad u ladies had a great time at Mamasita birthday bash.

**stat: It’s ok Zen, sometime a lot of us make typo error too ‘tomyum’, as if….kekeke.

Oldstock said...

So which song did you sing that night, Kak Zen?

pakmat said...

..hi, zen, if lady kama can sing sabai-sabai and u rate it as straight from the heart, then she is more Bird than Bird Thongchai...and somehow I am not surprised...it is to be expected from that versatile lady..would love to hear her sing this..

helen reddy's you r my world

..a fav of mine as a youth..but like oldstock, I too wondered..so what song did you sing?..:)

..seeing you guys having fun, sometimes I wished I am still as mobile as I was before..when KL is just over the hill...:)cheersw

pakmat said...

..sorry for the bad link..here's the right one

u r my world

Zendra-Maria said...

Sa-baai Tommy, aiyah just like you to over-analyse a simple song - didn't you see it's a zen number? It's beyond basal feelings - everything is sabai maaa, right is sabai, wrong also sabai - just accept whatever.... because there is only love for/from THE ONE hehehe

PS you'll know what is TOM YUM when I condense you into a cube and pop you in boiling water.... kakaka

Tommy Yewfigure said...

Hey Oldstock / Pakmat, I think since Zen was accompanied by her 2 lovely princesses, I sure they belt out this song that both u 2 old timers probably would have a clue about but not me I’m always that fly on the wall eavesdropping….kakaka

Come on Barbie, let's go party!

Cheers,
Tommy

Zendra-Maria said...

Oldstock, lama tak singgah? Kak Zen tak nyanyi, I just lip-sync'd whilst mamasita and Ezza (blogger of terkenangkenang fame) doled out their dulcet tones :)

Zendra-Maria said...

Pakmat, our Lady Kama was simply impressive you SHOULD have been there! I believe she's able to carry any genre from anywhere in the world - and Helen Reddy? kacang!!!

Waaah I should be her agent...

Well, if you're no longer that mobile maybe I can arrange for Lady to make an appearance in any upmarket karaoke lounge in KB? Let me know, hahahah!!!

Zendra-Maria said...

Barbie, Tommy? Naaah.... they couldn't find Lady Gaga's Bad Romance on the list, so they belasah'd Carpenters' "Top of the World" and Carole King's "I Feel The Earth Move". And if you all really must know, Ezza (and I) did Stevie's "I Just Called" *bows*

Tommy Yewfigure said...

How very sweet, ‘You just called to say I love u’…awwww Now I’m feeling on ‘Top of the World’ & definitely ‘feeling the earth moved’ too…kekeke. But sad to say I’m a really2 a;

BAD Influence

So I don't blame u if u main juah2 lah :((

Tommy

P/S - Your daughters really2 got potential by the look of those photos at mamasita. Very natural with full of charisma ;) kudos. The mummy? well errr it's sabaai lah!

Zendra-Maria said...

Tommy,
Chips of the old dotdotdot my kids are you know... after all they didn't call me Mariah Curryzma for nothing hehehaha

Oldstock said...

Kak Zen,

Something came up that put me off blogging (posting and blog-hopping) for a while. I probably need to join you guys for singing session just to take my mind off things...

Kama said...

wah, this thread very rancak wan. we had fun, didn't we zen? your 2 princesses... i love their showmanship! and oldstock.. come come, I'm waiting for the opportunity to invite you.

Zendra-Maria said...

Awww Oldstock, it's your new job isn't it? But never mind, Dr Zen says melalak is the best therapy for conditions such as yours and who the best to administer this - none other than our very own Lady Kama! You've seen her very affirmative reply, so... wait no longer yeah!?

Zendra-Maria said...

Kama, thanks so much to you and Pak Abu for hosting us... we really had a BLAST! Errmm.. the girls showmanship was just to cover their lack in the singing department hehehe.. tapi takut jugak saham depa jatuh lepas ni :}

DrSam said...

walauwee kanda. Of course, even the bestest tomyum would not wet your appetite as you 'sabai-sabaied' with the two undisputed top karaoke champion :)

Zendra-Maria said...

Doc, it was a very surreal feeling which overcame me when kama sabai-sabaied. If only I had hot spicy Tom Yum to slurp on at the same time... that would really have transported me... maybe Up Over to Patong Beach or Haadyai or Krabi... hmmmm
