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).

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)
