postheadericon Learn SCARY Cantonese

I happened to find a very good Cantonese learning video by MissYau’s Asian-SuperAsian Channel.
We can learn these “Scary” Cantonese expressions:

  1. 你玩嘢啊?lei wan yeh ah?)  Are you kidding (me)? Playing games?
  2. 你买定棺材啊你!(lei mai ding goon choi ah lei.)  Put a down payment on your coffin. Or get your coffin ready. It’s a threat or curse.  Are you scared yet? Watch this fun video.
  3. 唔好煩啊你 Mm – mo – fan – ah – lei. ) Don’t be a nuisance. Or “Stop bothering me.”

Please note that she does not use Jyutping.  For Jyutping, it is like this:

1.

简体
繁體
粤拼 nei5 waan4 je5 aa4
Yale nei5 waan4 ye5 aa4

2.

简体
繁體
粤拼 nei5 maai5 ding6 gun1 coi4 aa1 nei5
Yale nei5 maai5 ding6 gun1 choi4 aa1 nei5

3.

简体
繁體
粤拼 m4 hou2 faan4 aa1 nei5
Yale m4 hou2 faan4 aa1 nei5

More and more people are using “lei” instead of “nei” for (you), even for people older than me.

Is it SCARY Cantonese or not, but it’s basic Cantonese, or colloquial Cantonese. It is Cantonese youtube, or Youtube Cantonese lesson. Way to go MissYau!

postheadericon Learn to Cook in Cantonese(1)

Maria Wong created a great food channel in Youtube. Unlike others, her videos are all made with her heart and we really love it.

This week she teaches how to make “Fried Prawns in spicy sauce”:

You don’t need to understand all the Cantonese she speaks here, but at least the first sentence:
大家好, 今日廚師介紹做過幹燒大蝦
Jyutping:daai6gaa1 hou2 gam1 jat6 cyu4si1 gaai3siu6 zou6 gwo3 gon3siu1 daai6 haa1
Hello everyone, today the chef introduce (teach) how to make a “dry burn big shrimp (Fried Prawns in spicy sauce)”.
She repeated “daai6 haa1” (prawns) or just “haa1″(shrimps) many times.

Stay tuned, we will help to learn Cantonese as well as Maria’s cooking. She is from Hong Kong and lives in Germany.

This is an advanced Cantonese lesson, which trains your listening comprehension, but the beginners can pick up some basic phrases from her speech too.
