Mingalarbar! This time let’s learn something simple and new. I have a Myanmar Idiom in my mind to share with you.

So the idiom is ” အဝတ်တထည်၊ ကိုယ်တခု” “A Wut Ta Htel  Ko Ta Khu” meaning  “a body and a dress“.

You will like to use this when you want to say “I do not have anything with me; except my body wearing a dress”

Meaning: I am going around only with “a body and a dress”


ဘာမှမပါဘူး  (Bar Mha Ma Par Buu)

Meaning: I did not bring anything.

ကိုယ်တခု Ko Ta Khu: A body

နဲ့ Nel. : With

လျှောက်သွား Shout Thwar: Go around
