Bo-yong

BO-YONG adv., v. no use, unreliable
TAU-NAU n. brain

I haven't slept today. My tau-nau bo-yong (brain is useless!). I haven't found a good material to blog on.

Need to sleep to rejuvenate then leng-cheng (a Teochew word) enough to write some more.

Concussed. Sisuahlai.

P/s: Be careful how you pronounce leng-cheng, which really means rejuvenate in Teochew, if you said it right. You don't want Hokkien-speaking people to think that you have a "swollen breast"! Aisayman.
