When You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go | Happy Jellyfish

When You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go

So! Yesterday was the last day in the studio followed by three pre-recorded programmes in the series Naked Cantonese on RTHK. And the last episode ever was, very appropriately, recorded in the same public toilet where we have spent so many happy … minutes.

During the live programme I explained to ah-Sa that her frequently aired bunnies are actually called 事業線 Si yip sin – career path. Well not the bunnies themselves but rather the career-path-looking line running down between them. Cantonese, eh? So deep! (When I say “frequently aired” I don’t mean “taken out,” but “mentioned on air.”)

Then it was off to yam cha where guess how many of our irate listeners turned up? Two! No, not me and ah-Sa. And then: Straight to toilet. As you can see, the new doors they have inexplicably put in, are completely inferior to the yellow, funky ones of yore.

Yep, that was it. Thank you, ah-Sa for all the fun. SO much fun. And if the last three episodes aren’t very interesting or funny, well it was because I, for one, was strangely emotional and couldn’t think straight. So there you have it. But this is not the end! No. The fight for Cantonese world supremacy goes on. Watch this space!

Bye-byyyyyyyyyyyyyyye!

Dali: Where Christmas is not Only Santa | Happy Jellyfish

Dali: Where Christmas is not Only Santa

IMG_8506

Jesus hovering over the Great Wall? Why not. Jesus is everywhere so why not the Great Wall? It just looked so incongruous to see the cross in the middle of Dali’s old city as we were sauntering through that venerable entity, a bit quickly as it wasn’t exactly warm.

IMG_8504

I felt heartened seeing the cross and we went into the church, its entrance festooned with shiny pictures of Santa and lots of tinsel. Christmas can’t be all about Christianity in a church after all.

IMG_8508

That was yesterday and this morning I heard on the radio that China has recently removed 1,800 crosses from churches “because drivers might be distracted by them as they drive past.”

I’d say!

Merry Christmas.

耶穌 – Ye Sou (Jesus)
教堂 – gao tong (teaching hall/church)
大理 – Dai Lei (Dali, place in Yunnan)
