I would like to give you all a lesson in Foochow, which is a dialect spoken in my home town Sibu.
To start with  , I will give some easy words you can learn

e.g  - " Gu ai mo?  " ( Do you want anymore ?)
         " Milo "           ( Dun want anymore)

2. Malaysia  - Cannot eat

e.g      "  Eh lei sia KFC meh ?" ( Can I eat KFC?)
          " Malaysia "                     ( Cannot eat)

3. Tomorrow -  No more left

e.g    - Eh  KFC gu mo ?  ( anymore KFC? )
           " Tomorrow "         ( no more)

4. Again      - It's salty

e.g      " KFC eh gen meh?    ( Is KFC salty?)
          " Again"                      ( it's salty)

5. Celaka  - Very hot

e.g    " KFC hot and spicy eh ho xia meh ? ( is hot and spicy good?)
          " Celaka "                                          (very hot)
