Let's learn some Mandarin proverbs
Mari murid murid, biar cikgu sming ajar sikit cheena saying.
First proverb.
Zi Tao Ku Chi.
Means sendiri cari one. More in a victim way. Example like you helped a friend, but things didn't really worked out well, but instead of appreciating your help, she blamed you. Then you can say, "Aii.. I really zi tao ku chi..."
Second one.
Yi Xiao Ren Zhi Xin Duo Jun Zi Zhi Fu
Direct translation means you use the heart of a 'villian' to measure the stomach of a Gentleman.
Funny hoh. How to explain ler ??
The best scenario I can think of.... mmmm....is you know a friend who is looking for a specific car to buy, you know of a good salesman and recommended it to her. Then she eyes you with suspiscion and think that you are trying to make profit out of it. That you are getting commission when you were helping her out of good will.
Then, you give it back to her right in the eye using this proverb. "You might thought of doing something like this, but I am not!! Yi xiao ren zhi xin duo jun zi zhi fu !!!!! "
I think two for today is just nice yeah..
Kinda negative proverbs.. To match my mood for today. Anyway, there are alot of these unappreciative b*tches in this world. So it is good to learn up so that you can use it.
Raise the beer glass.. drown those sorrows !!
