Me: Once when I and my friend were ordering in Chowking, we overheard the person in front of us say in our vernacular, "What do you want, BEEP SIOMAI or FORK SIOMAI?"
Of course, I very well know that the poor lady meant BEEF SIOMAI or PORK SIOMAI.
While people were laughing their hearts out at my story, a friend shared a similar experience, even preceding her story with a "this one is a winner" remark. It sure was.
My Friend: In our office, we wanted to order from McDonald's so we passed around a piece of paper where people can list their orders. Our cleaner passed by so I asked her if she wanted anything.Cleaner (in the vernacular): Ma'am, I wrote it down already.
My Friend: (scanning the list).
So, does anyone want to order KING FRIES? That's FRENCH FRIES, the up-sized version. LOL.
