Cantonese is also a good one for howlers being so tonal as I'm sure you know, FED. You know you have used the wrong tone when the locals burst out laughing. A good example is gau. This can mean dog,...

Saul, I don't think the Nip has answered this bit, but as it is a good question, I'll have a stab at it.

It seems like yesterday to me that HK was handed back to China. And 50 years seemed like a lifetime away. However, we are nearly half way there, and many of the locals I know well are starting to...
