Lesson Transcript

過年
“年,又過年,共慶歡樂年年。”如果要做一個節日歌曲排行榜,過年歌曲肯定是第一位,無論是數量還是質量,過年歌曲都絕對取勝,可見過年的地位有多重要。
每年過年,最高興的肯定是細路,因為可以“逗利是”。利是從十蚊到一千蚊不等,一般是看給利是的人和收利是的人的親密程度以及其經濟狀況,當然,還有看財主出手夠不夠闊綽。經濟好的時候,我最多收過一千蚊一封的利是。經濟唔好的時候,我收了一堆五蚊的利是,拆都拆到手軟。
過年其實就是探親訪友,但是關於誰探誰,以及甚麼時候去探望都有著嚴格的規定。比如說,大年初一要探望爺爺嬤嬤,最高的長輩,年初二要探望娘家,等等。探望的順序必須是晚輩探望長輩,比如是妹妹探望哥哥,而且必須帶著糖果煙酒等各種禮品去,而被探的人也必須回贈禮品,寓意“有來有往”。

Hi Yoshi,


Oops sorry :oops: that was a typo, it's fixed now.

The correct phrase should be 拆都拆到手軟 (caak3 dou1 caak3 dou3 sau2 jyun5).

Alternatively, 拆到手都軟 (caak3 dou3 sau2 dou1 jyun5) is also ok.


Cheers,

Olivia

“拆都拆都手軟”


這應不應該是“拆到拆都手軟”?

you guys are doing an excellent job with the review track, adding the example sentences after the vocab is most helpful and a great improvement!
