Hello Melvin Lam,
Thank you very much for your comment and question. Yes we do have something equivalent to “How are you this morning” cháao-níi bpen yang-ngai bâang เช้านี้เป็นยังไงบ้าง and “How are you today” wan-níi bpen yang-ngai bâang วันนี้เป็นยังไงบ้าง. Hope that’s help. Please let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help you. We wish you have a good progress with Thai language.

Is there a Thai equivalent “How are you this morning” and “How are you today”
Thank you very much for your comment and question. Yes, กรุณา is use mostly on sign and formal situation. There are many way to make the sentence polite without the word please, so that why Thai people are not often say. We kind of using หน่อย/ครับ/ค่ะ/นะคะ/นะครับ/ to make the sentence more polite. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I will be glad to help. We wish you have a good progress with Thai.
Have a nice weekend.
my thai friend said no one says กรุณา for please… it is used in the most formal places only. isn’t there another way to say please?
should i expect some of these words to follow this line?

Another quite common question I get asked in Thailand is - Where are you going? (ไปไหนครับ). Perhaps that should be part of the common phrase list? Similarly the question - Where have you been? (ไปไหนมาครับ) is also quite a common question.
Thank you very much for your comment. For your question, sà-wàt-dii staawn-cháao and à-run-sà-wàt is the same thing, no different, so you can say either one. I would often say à-run-sà-wàt because it’s shorter and sound a little more formal. Hope that help.
We wish you have a great day.
