Your Favourite Cantonese Expression/Slang?
We, Cantonese speakers and HK-ers, have lots of weird ways of saying things! Many expressions/slang are unique to our language and some can’t be expressed in written Chinese!
Some of My Favorites -
阿茂整餅 - ”Mr. stupid makes cakes”, means doing something pointless/stupid
炒鱿鱼 - “Fry Squid”, means to get fired from a job
吹水 - “Blow Water”, means to brag
大鍋 - “Big Wok”, means Oh No! (big trouble)

Cantonese slang, heh, see it’s not all swear words. This is day-to-day 101. 😉
