Hua Hee Blog (Cinderella in Hokkien Version)

Astro CH 333 is Hua Hee Tai. The Egg Yolks Blog is Hua Hee Blog. Hehe. Hokkien blog. Actually I am not a Hokkien but I know how to speak Hokkien. Yolk is a Hokkien.

Are u Hokkien lang? If yes, you can read it without burden. If you are not, never mind. I will translate it in English for you. Don’t worry.

Recently I read a forwarded email from my friend. I think it is quite funny.

I quote this email and ask yolk to draw comic on that.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

* The translation is in the bracket and I italic them.

The story is entitled “Why Singalella (Cinderella) becomes rich?”

Koo zhar wu chee ay char bor kia, Singalella. (Once upon a time, there is a girl named Cinderella)

She got two sisters, but the stepmarder (stepmother) and the sisters all damn kuai-lan (very bad), so she is quite zhia-lat oso (pity also).
Last time Singalella (Cinderella) got own maid (has their own maid), but now she become the amah (servant).

Everyday must cook lah, clean lah, simi sai mah bao-kah-liao (every household chore was done by her).

If her sister say liak kar zhuak (catch cockroach), she liak (catches).

Tak jit zho kah tau-hin (everyday she works until very tire and dizzy).

EPF poon boh (No EPF (Employees Provident Fund) at all).

But then, kay piak eh ah-pek (their neighbour’s, an old man) got one son call Ah Ming got party.

So he say, 'oeh, long chong lai ah.' (‘Everyone is invited ’)

Singalella (Cinderella) very happy because she never go party before but then her step-marder (stepmother) say, 'Lee Mana eh-sai kee (you can’t go), this one bahru lu eh sisters wu standard.' (only your sisters can go because they got standard)

Then Singalella (Cinderella) must zho sui-sui (make-up) for her sisters and step-marder (stepmother).
Busy until buay zhia (not yet eat), buay koon (not yet sleep) and buay pang-sai (not yet shit).

That night she only can wave bye bye and then she go back to the kitchen and cook Maggi mee.
Her neighbour (busybody old lady) came over and ask, 'Eh, an-zhua lu boh kee party?' (‘Eh, Why you didn’t go to the party?’)

So Singaalella (Cinderella) kong (said), 'I-wan, lau-bu kong buay-sai, so boh pian.' (‘I wanted to, but stepmother said I can’t ’)

She never expect but the neighbour say, 'Aiyah, kee lah (go la), I give you money.'
So singalella (Cinderella) brush teef (teeth) and zhang-zhui (bath), chen-kor (wear pants), after that look very different.

She quickly run to opposite of the beh-chia-lor (road), already 11 o'clock.

At the party, Ah Ming also quite sian (boring) because the char bor (girls) all boh sui (not pretty) one.

Dance floor even got one ah pek (old man) dancing.
Just as Ah Ming told himself, 'Aiyah see-pay zhia-lat (very unlucky) ', Singalella (Cinderella) came in.

Ah Ming straight away lau nuar (mouth watering).

'Wah-lau eh (Wah), see-pay heng ah (very lucky), chee kor buay pai (this girl not bad).'

Ah Ming say to Singalella (Cinderella), 'eh, sui eh (beautiful girl), wah ai kah lee zho flen (I want to be your friend)! ‘

Singalella (Cinderella) say ok but Ah Ming like octopus, touch here touch there.

But then just it was 12 o'clock, one ah pek (old man) die on the dance floor.

He become ghost and tell Singalella (Cinderella) all the good 4D number.
So after that Singalella (Cinderella) quickly go and buy 4D, and then tiok tau-pio (win the 1st prize) , zhit-pak ban (one million).

So she pay back the kay-piak eh lau-kay-poh (old busybody lady who lived next door) and then kah kee cho sen-lee (she does some business herself).

Simi kuan eh sen-lee wah mana eh zhai. (I don’t know what kind of business she does)

The Little Nyonya (part 1)

Little Nyonya Special Edition (Don’t Miss It)

Have you guys watched Little Nyonya?

I watched for twice. It was just too nice. The drama illustrates the life of Nyonya in the Peranakan family. In the drama, Nyonya’s (refer to girl) was treated as gift or slave. Then Bibi (old lady) got jealous easily and very cruel. In the drama, the Peranakan family wanted their daughters to marry rich Baba (man) in order to strengthen their own business. They had complicated relationship because they are married to their own relatives. Their cultures are quite interesting that you guys should watched this drama.

After watching this drama, I realized that the “kuih” we see at market everyday are origin from Nyonya. Rempah Udang… I like it. There are many delicious Peranakan food as well such as “Babi Ponteh”, “Ikan Assam Pedas”, “Chap Cai” . I found out their “ABC” was without ice. Only ingredients.

They have big bowl called Kam Cheng which means relationship in hokkien. During their wedding ceremony, it will be filled with red and white glutinous balls in sugar soup. Red represents full of joy “喜气” and white represents purity “纯洁”.

I learned a new word “追远” meaning that we must always remember where we hail from and don’t forget our ancestors.

Nice drama. I asked yolk to draw some of the characters in this drama and I will put the dialogs that they used to say in the drama.

I’m Going Kame Hame Ha with Dragonball Evolution

I know it's kinda late to post this post..but anyway, I've took those pics so I don't want it to go into waste. In fact, this so called "goku" is a form four student in my school.

That day I was holding my camera walking around my school compound looking for nice spots to take the shots. Then i stopped at this spot. It's actually a hill where land slide occurred during 2009 Chinese new year's heavy down pour.

Joshua ^^

Right at that time Joshua (goku) walk pass me after he played soccer and wanted to go back to hostel. I forced him to be my model and warn him that if he resist, then I'll be giving him demerit marks!!haha!! kidding! I just told him to do some pose because I wanted to do some "project". Overall, he's very cooperative. The only problem is that he can't stop laughing while i take his pic.

I loved dragonball since I'm still in primary school, it was the few early comics that i tried to mimic. I've even collect their stickers and cards. They were like my treasures that time. [sound effect - my precious~~~~~~~]

Since it's school holiday this week, I might bring egg to catch this movie "Dragonball Evolution". It seems kinda nice on the visual effects. You guys watched??

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy those pics!!
*Egg told me that this boy (Joshua) very handsome. Do you agree with her?? [jealous]
