What is Một hai ba dô?
The meaning of Một hai ba dô:
- Technically, “Một hai ba dô” should be spelled “Một, hai, ba vô”, which literally means “One, two, three, enter”. This phrase can be heard everywhere in Vietnam whenever there’s a drinking party when everybody clinks glasses and drinks their alcoholic beverages at the same time. This merely is a call for everyone to drink their beer, regardless of how much.
- Note that “Một, hai, ba dô” does not mean “Bottoms up”, which would be “Trăm phần trăm”, meaning “100%”
