How good is your hokkien?

Tok kong hor! Couldn't leave any comments 'coz my hokkien sucks :P

An exerpt from the blog :
Ginna tua han siang hor si zor locter. An cua lei? Kan tan. Lu zor pang kao yi tan lang(lui) lai. Sui cha boh lai lu tio tan tiok. Ai yi tng sa tng kor no ploblem. Khua kao lu lan jiao bo lat.

And I did something really tok-gong today! I'd accidentally cc-ed an email to the wrong colleague. Instead of copying the email to Alan Lew of Marketing, I'd sent it to an Alan Chan instead. Guess who he is...Of all the Alans in SPH, it had to be....*sigh*

He'd emailed me almost immediately telling me I'd sent the email to the wrong person. On realising my boo-boo, I'd quickly emailed an apology which he'd also replied with a "it's okay..np :)". Balls shrink man..Not sure whether I'll still have a job tomorrow :P

Woah..someone's very eng (or really hates her)..but what almost killed me was this!
