Hello Chewy, Thai spelling is so varied that ometimes it's hard to know what word it is when it's written in latin script. Thai has five tones, and incorrect use of the tone can lead to misunderstndin, plus many sounds sch as b , p, ch and j get confused by how they are written. So, in answer to your question jab,or Jeb does mean "ouch". it's shortened form of " jeb pouy". I hope my explanation didn't confuse you.
In answer to your question as to where I am from, actually, I m from Saudi Arabia( that's the flag which you didn't recognise) but live part of the year in Bangkok.
Anyway , back to our topic, I hope Paradorn ( Ball) will win his match today He is playing Novak, and he has a very bad record aginst him. In fact the played four times before and Paradon lost all four times. I hope his luck changes today. "Chook dii na krup khun paradorn for your match with Novak".
