Hi Irene,


Thank you for your question.😉


"HANG" is a word from English, which contains the meaning of "(of a computer system) to stop working", so that when combining with 機, hang機 means "the computer is frozen". It is one of the examples of mixing Cantonese and English.


Cheers,

Hello Soumik ojha,


You can use 好貴呀!(hou2 gwai3 aa3!) instead of 太貴喇。(taai3 gwai3 laa3) anytime. 👍👍

Hello Sara,


Thank you for your comment.


I agree with you that the phrase {太貴喇。(taai3 gwai3 laa3.) ~ It's too expensive.} is so useful especially when you are doing shopping in Hong Kong. 👍
