Hokkien and proud of it....

Hi all!


today I just wanna introduce u guys to this hokkien song. I've heard it like 5 times already and already I feel very glad I am a Hokkien Lang. Like the french language, which is so chio and atas that even when the French swear at you, u think they are being friendly, Hokkien dialect is the devil's counterpart. Hokkien langs sound like they just cursed ur ancestors when they only wanna be friends.

in case u dun understand, Galvin's entry includes a comprehensive and very literal translation in English, so no worries.


As with all Hokkien songs hor, this is one of the quite good ones liao. In fact, my bro just told me that the KaraOke lounge he went to had this song too! oh yea! so I'm learning the lyrics properly rite now for my crooning session next weekend. My frens are sooooo going to die of asphxiation.....

For all those who are happily Hokkien already, pls go click on the 'ZAP!' button and tiah gwa!


Proud to be Hokkien! wah lau! wah lan! wah lan-eh!

Hahaha. I sing hokkien songs at the top of my voice in my dad's car.

I'm still trying to hone my hokkien skills every weekend at my granny's place. But sometimes I mix teochew with hokkien, making my ah-ma so confused. Hehehe.

eileen said...

hokkien... its a good dialect to use to communicate to the elderly but not in swearing vulgarities. gotta admit, im proud to be a hokkien but i cant help cringing at all the hokkiens "____(insert word)-lan" and "c_i b_i". it sounds horrible.

Lynne said...

I oso Teochew, so Tempest Blue and I can go kill each other and it's OK, 'cos "Teochew nang, pi si bo xiang gang" (Teochew people, beat to death nevermind), hehe

Cold Lion said...

Ji Pa Ban Ichi Ban

Ang Ku Kueh said...

Eileen:

I think it's the fact that the language itself sounds so vulgar that made me love it, heheeh...

Lynne:

actually, they say that teochew and hokkien sound alike leh...but seriously i dun understand teochew even if i hear it...

lexus:

ya lor...ji pah ban lotsa money....sighz..:)

nadnut said...

why must have moustache? do you have one? hahahaa

Tempest Blue said...

Hehe... I never heard Lynne's new expression before.

Funny how the Teochew intros always have funny rhymes...

Lynne said...

tempest blue: My grandma always said that to the veg-seller to get more veg ... kinda a threat, if you ask me, hehe

galvintan.com said...

Hope you strike lottery and Tio Ji Pa Ban!!
