Bin Che-Che

BIN n. face
CHE adj. (sounds like "chair") green

Another expression for bin jiaw-jiaw is BIN CHE-CHE (not chi-chi). Bin che-che means a panic-stricken facial expression.

Bin, as mentioned above, is face in Hokkien, and che means green (so che-che therefore means green-green). Let me give you a good illustration.

Now see the difference the colour green does to your appearance.

Yup, definitely MORE panic stricken.
