Hello Jason,


Thanks for your comment! 😄

Regarding your question,

中心 (zung1 sam1) means "centre". Therefore, the literal translation of 按摩中心 (on3 mo1 zung1 sam1) would be "massage centre", it also makes sense for "massage place". 😉 But if you want to specify "place", please simply use 地方 (dei6 fong1). 😉


And for the second question, 休息 (jau1 sik1) means "to rest", so when talking about a shop, then it means "it is closed (on ...)."

In "ngo5 pang4 jau5 aam1 aam1 hoi1 zo2 gaan1 on3 mo1 zung1 sam1." Does "zung1 sam1" mean 'place'? Could you also use "dei6 fong1" instead? When I search 'place' in the Cantonese Dictionary I don't see "zung1 sam1" ... any tips for remembering this one? I think of 'room' when I hear "fong1" so it makes sense that way for me. Any root meaning behind "zung1 sam1"?


And,


In "go2 dou6 sing1 kei4 jat6 jau1 sik1. gam2 sing1 kei4 ng5 dak1 m4 dak1?" Does "jau1 sik1" mean 'closed'? Again, I can't seem to find this phrase when I search 'close' in the Cantonese Dictionary.


Thank You!!
