Mandrian Lesson...

Seems like FF could use some Chinese (or as she say, Ching-Chong) lessons... Therefore, I come up with this blog entry to help her, and other non Cheena guys kick start their Chinese learning. I will show a few common Chinese phases and how they are used in our daily coversation.

Phase: 卖鱼 - Mai Yu
Meaning: Selfish
Usage: 你只买你的东西。 你很卖鱼。 - Ni Zhi Mai Ni De Dong Xi. Ni Hen Mai Yu
(You only buy your own stuff. You are very selfish)

Phase: 叫一天 - Jiao Yi Tian
Meaning: Call it a day
Usage: 工做了这么久, 是到时候叫一天了。 - Gong Zuo Le Zhe Me Jiu, She Dao Shi Hou Jiao Yi Tian Le.
(After working for so long, its time to call it a day)

Phase: 拿一个破 - Na Yi Ge Po
Meaning: Take a break
Usage: 我累了, 要拿一个破 - Wo Lei Le, Yao Na Yi Ge Po.
(I am tired, need to take a break.)

Phase: 那是点的旁边 - Na Shi Dian De Pan Bian
Meaning: That's beside the point.
Usage: Er... 那是点的旁边。 - Na Shi Dian De Pan Bian.
(That's beside the point.)

Phase: 去一头 - Qu Yi Tou
Meaning: Go ahead
Usage: 我还有事,你去一头巴。- Wo Hai You Shi, Ni Qu Yi Tou Ba
(I still have something on, You go ahead)

Phase: 没有眼睛的鹿 - Mei You Yan Jin De Lu
Meaning: No idea
Usage: 问题 - 你知道今晚的晚餐吃什么吗?答案: 没有 眼睛的鹿- Wen Ti - Ni Zhi Dao Jin Wan De Wan Chan Chi She Me Ma? Da An - Mei You Yan Jin De Lu
(Qn - Do you know what's for dinner tonight? Ans - No idea)

Phase: 叫我巴使苏卡又打我到傻 - Jiao Wo Ba Shi Su Ka You Da Wo Doa Sha
Meaning: Call me Babushka and spank me silly
Usage: Ask FF.

There, that's all I can think off now. Hope this is useful in helping you start your Mandrian learning. No need to thank me. Thank FF for the inspiration.

Hey, you left out the intonations! Material for another blog entry, perhaps?

And "Mandrian" is actually Mandarin. Maybe FF can help on that, eh?

How do you actually type the Chinese characters? Do you need to download software first?
