The Comic With Hainanese Dialogue 2

Back by 'popular demand'. I was pleasantly surprised by the encouraging comments by my Hainanese readers in the previous 'Comic With Hainanese Dialogue'. As a disclaimer, my Hainanese is hardly anywhere near perfect and do correct me if I'm wrong. Oh yes, the 'fan-subs' are switched on by default this time. Have fun ;)




Editor: Ay, what're you doing?
Woman:
I'm filling out my appraisal form. *Sigh..* Very Boring.



Editor: Why is it boring?
Woman:
It's the same questions every year, I don't know what to write.



Editor: HEH! Write down you hope the company will promote you.
Woman:
Promotion? Promotion my backside! The company increased our workload without raising our salary. So angry!



Editor: Don't be angry. If you're often angry, you'll age sooner.
Woman:
Hmm...correct, correct. I'm not afraid of anything except ageing.
Editor:
Hehe. Er...
Woman:
What's the matter?
Editor:
Look what's behind you.





Woman: AHH! Smash it quickly! Ee-Yer!!
Editor:
Er...I'm also afraid of cockroaches.
Woman:
Hiyah! So angry!

For the benefit of non-Hainanese speaking readers, reader 'james' commented he laughed until his tummy ached and would like to know how I came up with the dialogue for this comic.

To james:
Dialogue han nong kai yee nwee soet lai. XD

Translation: The dialogue wormed its way out of my ear. XD

Don't know why, everytime I hear pretty girls speak in Hainaese, Teochew or Hakka, I feel their attractiveness dips a little.

Maybe the only time I usually hear those dialects is when I'm at the wet market...ha ha ha
