Soo, Mom's in Singapore, having the time of her life shopping. Dad's in Kuala Lura having fun too. And here I am watching a hokkien channel.

Dad's having fun, Mom's having the time of her life, and there she is watching Hokkien TV. :lol: :lol: The contrast! Now she from the islands, or the Big Island of S.E.A., if that "D" ain't lying.

why do cabdrivers always think I'm a friendly Chinese boy who is interested in full fledged Hokkien-laced conversations? shut up and drive.

The Ahma staring at me and my food, unable to eat, with tubes in her nose and her mumbling in hokkien. Maids clueless. Rahhh.

看了建國百年的mv,怎麼說呢,總不是唱台語歌或請原住民來唱就五族融合了,尤其當這些音樂都只是在為這麼明顯的外省的、中產階級心中的歷史當作註解而已。不是很服氣。http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5TOAl-y35g

背包客棧隔壁是一家雜貨店。這裡每天每天都有說不完的話,從早到晚,阿美族語台語國語交替著,偶爾唱歌偶爾笑聲,這些我聽不懂的聲音好像只要隨手一抓都是故事,而我在這些聲音裡面讀書寫字睡午覺曬太陽,豐富得好閒逸。

@ygren 我覺得有些台語實在很生妙,就是要用他,才覺得活了起來。之前學日語,要翻成中文時,怎樣都覺得轉不太對,但用台語翻,就抓到感覺了。

Google Translate will become a very powerful tool for Chinese elderly if they can translate other languages into Teochew or Hokkien.

Hi amhoann,

Thanks for taking the trouble to extract and post these! Some of them are hysterically funny, some of them super-sad (= extremely irritating)!
