Vietnam: Good for health

There are some classic lines that I don't want to forget when I leave Vietnam so I thought I would write them down and share with you:

Good for health/ bad for health- instead of saying it's good for you or bad for you

I think beautiful - "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." I say, which of course they don't understand but that has yet to stop me from always saying it. "Just because you think this yellow fluffy rhinestones shirt is beautiful I may have a different opinion."

He so ugly inside - meaning he is a mean person.

Bingo!! - 'Bingo' has become more then the name of the game. It is now the word that students say after completing an activity or game. I am pretty sure that they think the word 'Bingo' means finished in game talk.
