CantoNews Podcast with Cecilie and Nick

CantoNews

CantoNews, the finest, most exclusive Lantau-related Cantonese news currently available, brought to you by Cecilie Gamst Berg (Ah-Sin), the only Norwegian Cantonese teacher in the village, and Nick Milnes, comedian extraordinaire, also known as 'Cassette'. Your days of not being able to communicate with your neighbours, fishmongers and beer...mongers in Cantonese are well and truly ovah! Cecilie and Nick are on the case, through the nights and through the days. So once a week we’ll be giving out free Canto-advice for the world, and although it’s primarily about Lantau Island, most of the vocabulary will have universal appeal. New episodes are added to the radiolantau.com stream every Tuesday and are repeated approximately every 3 hours.

CantoNews 5 - live from Roof

Hello everybody, welcome to my roof! I normally arrange Sichuan dinners and lunches there, but this time it doubled as a recording studio for the best Cantonese news currently available on cassette! (And telex.)

Here is the sacred programme, CantoNews 5 live from my roof.

Cassette opens up old wounds by mentioning ah-Sa, my old co-host from RTHK and we talk about taking photos. The words below are from the actual programme – please give it a listen!

自己 – Ji gei (self, own)
上個禮拜六 – Seung go lai bai luk (Last Saturday)
座飛機 – Cho feigei (Take a plane)

CantoNews 4 - Guangzhou

Oh Cassette! Two weeks ago we went up to Guangzhou to see him live in his stand-up glory at a place called… Panda something? No! Paddyfield, an Irish pub right behind the Garden Hotel.
Cassette is funny! But missed our recording at the Oi Kwan revolving restaurant. Tthe next morning. Ah – what a lovely morning! The restaurant was spinning, the sun was shining and the food was great. So we just went ahead and recorded anyway.

Unfortunately, unlike Cassette, ah-On wasn’t wildly enthusiastic about CantoNews, and spent most of the recording time looking at the view. But the view was amazing! First sunny day in weeks, etc etc.

Listen to this groundbreaking free Cantonese course on www.RadioLantau.com or on archive . Don’t forget to scroll down until you see the hallowed sign

熊貓 -Hong mao (bear cat/panda)
愛爾蘭 – Oi yi laan (Ireland)
有太陽 -Yau tai yeung (Have sun/sunny)

CantoNews 1

Ohhh this has been a long time coming! I didn’t realise how much I’d been missing Naked Cantonese and ah-Sa (mine co-host of yore) before I started to make podcasts – properly – again only last Saturday. AND with a new co-host, Nick, also known as ‘Cassette’!

So once a week we’ll be giving out free Canto-advice for the world, and although it’s primarily about Lantau Island, most of the vocabulary will have universal appeal. Woo-hoooooo FINALLY! The first episode, CHEERS! is right here:

錄音帶 – Luk yam dai (record sound ribbon/cassette)
飲杯 – yam biu (drink cup/cheers)
中山 – Jung Saan (Middle Mountain/Zhong Shan, named after Sun Yat Sen)
