Saturday Fun (星期六趣味)

For some time how, I have been posting here various jokes forwarded to me by my friends or extracted from the internet.. But to date, I have never yet posted anything which moves. So I thought it might be interesting to introduce a little change today. Everyone thinks and says that the dialect we speak in Hong Kong is Guangdong dialect (廣東話). Strictly speaking, it is NOT that at all! It's just the dialect of Guangzhou  (廣府話). You don't believe me? Watch this video which I find not only entertaining but educational as well.





Don't we hear all those kinds of accents all the time amongst the cleaning workers, waiters, shopkeepers or customers or the parents of some of our friends and colleagues?  Whether or not you do, have fun detecting the subtle differences in the way they pronounce familiar Chinese words and have a nice weekend.
