Lau kwi

LAU KWI v.,adj. embarrassing, shameful (Kuching pasat variant, or market variant: lau kui) - thanks for reminding!

Someone asked me what's Hokkien for embarrassing. It took me 30 minutes to come out with the answer. Now, that is truly lau kwi. Like incontinence in public places. (the answer to public incontinence can be found on this ship...)
