Reese,
Why does the Hokkien seem easier than the others? I was able to imitate it easily. Maybe because woman's voice?
This is fun! Post more lessons.

Reese,

These language posts are fun. My tongue is still in knots - and my memory too because of all the new vocabulary. The only word I can remember is yeleni. It reminds me of zeleni, which is Czech and means green...

You have come so far with your blog. Keep going!!!

Debi & Christina,

Thanks so much! Glad that you enjoyed the language lessons. We had fun doing this too.

Interestingly, Mark finds it easier to learn Tamil. Hokkien has too many different tones that make his head spin.

Yeleni..Zeleni..now I'm adding another word to my vocabulary.

Will work on more language posts soon!

Thanks EG:)

Let me know if you need a little more help on learning Hokkien. Or throw us a few more words which you think can be useful for your use in Penang.

Chuang - thanks to you for the "chu bi oh" phrase. Mark uses it everywhere he goes now..
