    1. Long time no see應該不是香港英文,而是晚清的洋行買辦的洋涇濱英文(Pidgin English),現在已收納在英文字典,可以在不太正式的場合用了。

  3. 1. You teach me how to come out and walk in the future?
    2. If you have enough ginger, put your horse to me.
    3. What the water are you?
    4. Do you big me?
    5. I saw a pork chop.

    1. 先找出粵語原文:
      1. You teach me how to come out and walk in the future?你叫我以後點出來行?
      2. If you have enough ginger, put your horse to me.夠薑就放馬過來。
      3. What the water are you?你乜水(誰)呀?
      4. Do you big me?你大我呀?
      5. I saw a pork chop.見到件豬扒(醜女)。

      香港俗語天下無雙,我都要想想英文有沒有相應的講法,現在先歡迎大家提議一下。

    2. 1. You teach me how to come out and walk in the future?你叫我以後點出來行?
      How on earth can I walk tall and face other people?(這句最難譯)

      2. If you have enough ginger, put your horse to me.夠薑就放馬過來。
      Come on, if you are a man, prove it!

      3. What the water are you?你乜水(誰)呀?
      Who the hell are you?/ Who do you think you are?

      4. Do you big me?你大我呀?
      Don't you try to bluff me!

      5. I saw a pork chop.見到件豬扒(醜女)。
      Just saw a Mona Bushpig.

  10. Some people here say sing-ger, not a correct pronunciation. I am annoyed by it sometimes.
    Oddly enough, both pronunciations kwes-chen and kweshen are in the dictionary m-w.com. But I don't hear people here say kweshen much (I could be wrong). --zpdrmn

    1. 我都未聽過鬼佬講 「ques唇」。
