Mmm goi!

Posted by Maureen Sunday, December 11, 2005

I'm missing it. I go through phases where its absence intensifies and I can not believe that I am here and not there. Inasmuch as there were days I would give anything to have my own car, now I experience the opposite--if only to walk out my door and jump in a cab, or on the DB ferry, or the M590 bus, the MTR (subway), with my headphones on, my coffee from Pacific Coffee Co., and the Asian version of USA today that I would buy for $10HKD from the newstand at the ferry pier. And every day feeling a little guilty for not buying the South China Morning Post instead. :) This was every day. And I loved it.
So as Kate & Amanda would say as an expression of frustration, trying so hard to use their Cantonese: "Mmm goi!", which actually is not an expression of frustration at all, but it was cute when they tried, and now it replays in my head.
