This may be slightly off topic, but did you know that here in Hong Kong they give everyone Chinese names, whether you want one or not. That goes for famous people such as Brad Pitt, so if you are ever in a discussion with a Cantonese person and you talk about how much you love Brad Pitt, they may say the have never heard of that actor, and that will be true because they will only know him by his Chinese name!

Thus, it was very interesting to me, trying to learn Cantonese, to keep hearing news reports about someone name He Lai Lee. He Lai Lee was always in the news it seemed, and then suddenly, very recently, He Lai Lee is very rarely mentioned. Now it is nothing but Oh Bah Mah.


True.

P.S. - I loved the jibjab video this time around - Is that the Unity Pony Oh Bah Mah rides on? - interestingly Mah means horse in Cantonese. smile.gif I think Oh might be beach, Bah I don't know but it is close to Bao, which means bun - so maybe he is a Beach Bun Pony here, who knows? smile.gif

I just wish I could actually vote FOR a candidate sometime. As it is, I usually end up voting "Lesser Evil", at least for the major positions. yucky.gif ( I do actually like some of the local officials...)
