租屋3
搞掂咗之後我好開心,就喺搬屋前兩日,為咗慶祝,我仲特登去髪型屋做個新髪型。點知,就喺髪型師撳住我個頭嘅時候,我接到一個電話 - 收咗我訂金嘅屋主臨時改變主意,間屋唔租喇!我一激動,嚇到個髪型師爭啲剃咗我個頭。但係我冇辦法冷靜,因為咁即係話,如果唔喺兩日之內租到屋,我就唯有瞓街。為左呢個晴天霹靂嘅消息我同個屋主吵咗起嚟,但係冇用。
我即刻趕返屋企上網,又繼續以我之前嘅瘋狂精神搵樓,半夜發短信騷擾人哋,約時間第二日睇樓。又因為我由細就堅信自己喺一個死好命嘅人,所以我覺得呢個或者喺命運嘅安排,或者個天想我租一間更好嘅屋。果然,第二日一早,我八點鐘就去咗睇屋,九點半就直接同屋主簽咗約。
今次呢間屋簡直係kinder出奇蛋,一次過滿足我三個願望。一,行到我公司都不過喺十分鐘;二,雖然喺同人夾份,但我嘅房間喺樓上,而且成層都係我嘅,仲有獨立洗手間同埋一個十幾二十坪嘅天臺;最後就係,呢個房間係我由細就想住嘅舊閣樓!又矮又斜嘅天花板啦,窄窄嘅樓梯啦,踩上去就會聽到木板響,仲有個細細嘅天窗,每日都可以俾陽光曬醒。
或者,有時坎坷嘅經歷,就係緣分。

Hi Baha (巴哈),


Thanks for your question. 😉

No, "喺" and "係" are different.

You can find more details about the comparison between these on this webpage:

https://www.cantoneseclass101.com/learningcenter/reference/grammar/37?

It mentions "喺(hai2) means “to be (somewhere)”, it’s always linked to a location.". In fact, it's not only limited to somewhere but also time, which is the case of the sentence you asked.

Please let us know if you still have any questions. 😄

Hello Cantonese Class 101,

In the sentence; "就喺髪型師撳住我個頭嘅時候" there is "就喺". Is that correct writing? Or does that have same meaning with "就係"? I am kind a confused with these two "喺" and "係".

Thank you for the help

Cheers

Hi Steve Bright,


恭喜發財!! Thank you very much for your comment, and pointing out the issues, “… 仲有細細個嘅天窗 …” should be “… 仲有個細細嘅天窗 …” and it's fixed now :wink:


This one is correct though --> “… 有時坎坷嘅經歷 …”

Please let us know if you have further questions on this lesson.

Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

Hi Cantoneseclass101.


There appears to be a slight variance between the following transcript in the penultimate and last paragraph and its audio :-


1) "... 仲有細細個嘅天窗 ..."


2) "... 有時坎坷嘅經歷 ..."


Appreciate if you could clarify.


Thank you in anticipation and 恭喜發財!

Hi Steve Bright,


The 3 wishes are chocolate, toy, and an novelty item.:grin:

This is the TV commercial: https://youtu.be/28AiLmuM0nw

At the beginning, the mom gives the son compliment for finishing his homework, she offers to get him a gift, so the kid wishes for those 3 items. Then at the supermarket he pointed out that Kinder Surprise fulfill all 3 of his wishes. :wink:

Hi Steve Bright,


"kinder出奇蛋" is the chocolate snack called "Kinder SURPRISE" by Ferrero, one of the slogan in its TV commercial in Hong Kong was 一次過滿足晒三個願望 "fulfilling 3 wishes at the same time" :wink:


Have you ever had a Kinder SURPRISE? :)
