Learn Chinese in 5 minutes

I’ve been looking for this for some time.  I only remembered “sum sing wong”, but I knew there were more.  Today, while on the corporate chat discussing what to order from Chinese for lunch, someone pasted the links to Part 1 and Part 2.  My favorite ones are below:

  • That’s not right : Sum Ting Wong
  • See me ASAP: Kum Hia Nao
  • I thought you were on a diet: Wai Yu Mun Ching
  • Our meeting is scheduled for next week: Wai Yu Kum Nao
  • Give me the money! : Pei Nau
  • Where’s the restroom: Ai Pe Nau
  • Your price is too high: Ai No Bai Dam Ting
  • I am not guilty: Wai Hang Mi
  • Having an early orgasm: Kum Tu Suun
  • Now I understand: Ai See Nau
