Small correction please on Vietnamese welcome. Chow-Ong is what you say to a male - of equal stature. Chow-Co is what to say to a female, who is single. Chow-Ba is to say welcome to a married woman. Chow-Em you might say to a younger female. Likewise Chow-Anh (pronounced EYEng) to a young boy. There are 20 odd ways to say a welcoming howdy in Vietnamese - with slight differences North and South. Much like here in the U.S. In Brooklyn they say "Yo' 'S Up." In Atlanta, "Hi Y'all." Chow-Ong - etc - is not welcome, exactly. It's more on the order of Hello. Howdy. Hi Y'all. Yo. s'happenin' Like that. Fly safe. Com un ong (Thank you).
