Random Teochew Notes

  • Common romanized TC last names: Taing (Dang

  • "Teochew" in Japanese is
  • ちょうしゅう(Chou Shuu).
  • Leu gai mama
  • 汝个妈妈 is Teochew for "Yo mama."
  • Hak Seng
  • 学生 is how you say "student" in Teochew AND Korean.
  • Q: What did the Korean camerman say when he arrived at the TC B-day party?
    A: Annyeon-hot-sia- ou! (Ohh the cheeze)

  • 周星驰 swears in TC in 食神. 楊千嬅 speaks TC in 新紮師妹 2.
  • Li Ka-Shing, richest man in Asia, is TC. Woohoo TC power!

I'd say "nia bho" would be even more derogatory, and "nia ai" to be almost as derogatory as "nia bho" :)
