香港典型既情侶對話 (from RobTrust)
男：咁去POKKA好唔好？？ｏ個度Ｄ SET DINNER都幾好食（開始有Ｄ無奈）
Here’s the translations for those who don’t understand Cantonese dialect:
The Exemplar of Hong Kong Couples’ Conversation
- In Chinese, “hot air” (熱氣) is a condition you get from eating too much hot, fried, or oily food. I’ll be replacing “hot air” with “unhealthy”, so the conversation flows.
- 味千 or Aji is pronounced May Qeen in Cantonese, but it’s a Japanese ramen chain.
Guy： What do you want to eat tonight?
Girl： I don’t care!! You decide
Guy： How ’bout sushi?
Girl： The weather’s too cold to eat something so icy cold…
Guy： Then let’s do hot pot, the weather’s so cold, doing hot pot would be the best
Girl： I did hot pot just two days ago, doing too much hot pot is bad for health
Guy： Then how ’bout Thai or Korean BBQ??
Girl： I already said I don’t want unhealthy, and you still want me to eat those food, are you even listening to me…
Guy： The let’s go to POKKA?? The Set Dinners there are pretty good (feeling a bit annoyed)
Girl： There’s too many people at POKKA, don’t want to wait in line
Guy： The how ’bout “steak”?
Girl： Don’t want to eat that much meat, too fattening..
Guy： Nobody says you have to eat the entire “steak”, or you can order a plate of pasta or other things
Girl： Then that’s just telling me to watch you eat “steak”, I don’t get to eat means you don’t get to eat…
Guy： How ’bout Taiwanese then? (feeling a bit angry)
Girl： Taiwanese food has too much oil, too fatenning (spoiled brat)
Guy： How ’bout congee then (feeling more anger)
Girl： The weather’s too cold, eating congee won’t fill my stomach
Guy： McDonald’s “or” Kentucky Fried Chicken… should be fine then （already too angry to think anymore）
Girl： Already said nothing unhealthy.. (not bending)
Guy： How ’bout you decide then, I don’t want to think anymore…
Girl： I only asked you because I couldn’t decide, can’t you give more choices (starts to throw fit)
Guy： If it’s not unhealthy, it’s fattening, I really can’t imagine what’s left (explodes)
Girl： Well it is unhealthy, and fat “right”.. Was I wrong, just because you can’t think of any place doesn’t mean you have to yell (trouble maker complains first)
Guy： How ’bout “Aji” for ramen then (random suggestion)
Girl： Hmmm.. sounds good, I want curry ramen/fried dumplings (gyozas)
Guy： ………………..(didn’t you say nothing unhealthy)
Girl： Afterwards, I’d want
Guy： ………………..(didn’t you say the weather’s too cold to eat icy cold things… ?）
