รอ ยุ พอ ดี
In this case, I'd say, it's a long vowel อยู่, which can be used to express what in English is continuous tense, i.e. am waiting, was waiting, have been waiting, had been waiting.

So a free translation would be: "I was just waiting for you."

Re: รอยุพอดี

Actually if it's roy phoo dii it is "just one hundred". Or is there a short "u" vowel beneath the "y"? Without the "u", it would mean what I said above.

Re: รอยุพอดี

To me พอดี is "just right, just, even". So in this sentence roh phohdee, it's something like: " I was just waiting for you (at the time).

Reason for road accidents?

No wonder there are so many road accidents in the Land of Smiles.

There's a recent thread about this. Hopefully, you can get some ideas from there.

Re: Premier League 2017-2018

Empires rise and fall. That is the natural way. Football teams stay, managers and players go, the team remains. I just wonder will the whiners ever go.

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

Thai Rath's facebook page has also the video of the hurt man being carried to the pickup. Underneath they say that the shark species is black eared shark. The name is only a translation from ฉลามหูดำ . I don't know the official name of the shark.

Re: Pivotal moments in life.

This is a good one. I first went to China, when I was 25, had my 26th birthday on the trans-Siberian. Then when I was 29 I left Finland behind. My intention was to look around in China and maybe in Hong Kong and get a job there.. I arrived in the middle of Tian An Men -incident and I suppose, that m...

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

It's amazing that these kind of things don't give the Thailand bad reputation like when someone says Thailand has a lot of sex-tourism. Well, at least the government doesn't think so. :(

Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

I don't think we have to look as far as North-Korea. Look what happened to Burma long time ago. From one of the most mineral rich countries in S-E Asia to rags.

Re: Venues will now need licence for playing darts

So what's the Darts Association got to do with law enforcement?? As Vichai said, the association can get the correct permissions. Obviously you might be able to get them from the police but it might be easier via Vichai. I know him personally and he is a darts man through and through. The pool lice...
