Because I don’t want to spoil the record of a blog a day (unlike a blog whose URL is http://a-blog-a-day.blogspot.com who is not updated daily) I will include a filler.
This happened today:
Chinese Taxi Driver: You ni Cina ker? (Are you Chinese?)
Me: Uh… Yeah. Tapi tak boleh cakap Cina lah. Dengar boleh. (But I can’t speak Chinese. I can understand it though.)
CTD: Aiyo! Itu macam tak boleh. You pernah kena fakk? (That should not be! Have you been screwed?)
Me: Yeah… tapi I boleh order lah. Char Siew Fan, Tar Pao. Mai Tan. (Yeah, but I can order. Barbequed pork rice, take away, call for the bill.)
CTD: YAAA! BABI SEDAP OOO!
For some reason, the way he said it it was so hilarious. Oh, and it means “YEAH! Pork is delicious!”
The second funniest pork-related phrase I’d heard was “BAAABIII?!? HARAAAM TUH!”
In other words, pork is against one’s religion if one is a Muslim.
