Rojaks Dicktionary - Diu (屌) in Cantonese

WARNING : 18SX, under 18 do not proceed!! Prolly NSFW too! .... that also depends on whether your boss got use this word anot! LOL!

I been constantly asked by readers in this blog to explain certain manglish words i used in my post as they have no idea what does it mean. Most of the time I would use slang or canto or hokkien which is easier to understand if you were of chinese ethnic but if you are not familiar with mandarin, cantonese or hokkien you would catch no ball la!

Anyway since I eat full no lan play ... today Im gonna teach you all the most commonly used word in Rojaks Daily ..... the word is :

Traditional Chinese:
Hong Kong coinage: [門+小]
Canto: Diu
Mandarin: Diao

Diu literally means fark and it is a common profanity in Cantonese.

Now you know the meaning ledi ... lemme teach you how to use the word Diu effectively :

1.] Diu Lei (屌你) = Fark you
2.] Diu Lei Low Mow (屌你脑没) = Fark your low mow (low mow is the name of a guy) :P
3.] Diu Lei Low May (
屌你老味) = Fark your low mei (low mei is the name of a girl) :P
4.] Diu Lei Erm Sang Jai (屌你唔生子) = Fark you no preggy
5.] Diu Lei Erm Duck Harn
(屌你唔得闲) = Fark you no free
6.] Bay Yarn Diu (被人
) = Let peeple fark
7.] Bay Gwai Diu (被鬼
) = Let ghost Fark
8.] Bay Kau Diu (被狗
) = Let Dog Fark
9.] Diu Dou Luen (屌到乱) = Fark till upside down
10.] Diu Loh (
喽) = Fark Loh (Loh is a popular surname in chinese family) :P

Then again .... dont think Diu is all bad ... in Taiwan "Diao" is also used by young people to mean "cool". One of the Fehmes fler in Taiwan that always says "Diao" as in cool is Jay Chow.

Now ... in India, Diu has an entire new meaning! .... How izzit possible? Nvm ... I'll let the photo do the toking ok?

DiuTourism ... Ahpek's favourite kinda tour!!!

Hotels in Diu .. Resorts in Diu ... Airport also Diu??!!!

You are Welokam to Diu! (this sounded so wrong)

Yea there is really a place call Diu in Gujarat India ... no bruff you wan!!

And this is the History of Diu!

Diu is not really all bad you know? Some diu is good and some diu is very-very good it depends on how you look at it only!

Thats all the time we have for today class .... I want you all to go home and plektis what you learn today and in your everidei life ok?
