The 5L Saga Continues

Yesterday, for the very first time, I attempted to speak Hokkien to a customer. All these while I never actually conversed and I usually say the common Hokkien terms like lu chiak ho bo? or wa be zhai. Cos this one customer, every time I spoke Mandarin he replies in Hokkien and he seems to not understand some Madarin words. So....bo pien have to try conversing in Hokkien. Mandarin and Hokkien are quite similar, just different way of pronouncing it. So, I managed lah. Perhaps during my hols waitressing, I may be Chinese-ized once more. This time, speaking Hokkien. o.O Wow. Cos 5L customers are mostly Chinese. Got typical Chinese men that don't speak English come eat here you know! In fact, these people are the ones who are REALLY loaded. Hehe. I took a peek into their wallet when they wanted to make payments. Wahahaha.......


My title sounds so Sci-Fi. Hahahaha....
