Friday's Teaching (archived)

Yesterday's useful addition: KA NA SAI

HUM-PALANG originates from Cantonese, but Hokkien-speaking people have modified its use to suit their everyday lives. Read my entry for its proper application.

Special thanks to Jeremy C for doing such a generous intro for Sisuahlai's Hokkipedia on his blog. Pai-seh. I am beginning to receive some strange emails from your blogitors.

Thank you also for your comments and suggestions. SilveRaven, I won't be able to attend the Kuching Blogger Meet, because I am not in Kuching this month, and strictly speaking, I am not a Blogger, and I also shy-shy. Bloggers talk about their lives, their adventures, I just talk about my adventures with Hokkien words. FH2O, I just want my friends to understand why I am so proud of Kuching Hokkien dialect, so must have a tribute site for this dialect. m.o.t.t., I hope your sons will grow up and take over my writing, I am beginning to run out of interesting Hokkien words (no-la, just joking, Hokkien so rich, how can run out so soon). Edison, grateful for your suggestion, tang-kee-yuk very much. Q, my good pengyiu, after your e-mail comment, I become so damn pai-seh, so I include your comment small-small ok? (I want to correct your comment too) your new blog is damn funny. Its good. Seriously. The concept, the illustration/example you give with you definitions are excellent. You've got the potential to be bigger than Kenny Sia.

Q, I damn pai-seh, man. You think I can be bigger than Kenny? I disagree with you, I don't think I'm ever gonna be bigger than him. See this picture for the conclusive proof...

thank you jeremy_c for doing an intro on this site on your blog. Shame, that one of your blogitors was unable to leave her comment here. Never mind, so long as she is learning, I'm happy. One of your blogitors said I am quite funny... "quite funny"? What does she mean?! I am a tee-cze (teacher in my accent), I don't do funny-funny business one. Haiz.
