Will & Guy's

** How to speak Chinese **

I have an old friend called Chris Pett. We have lost touch, I suspect that he has done a Lord Lucan and gone into hiding. Just in case there is another Chris Pett, my friend answers to Eri Stalis. Before he disappeared from my radar, Chris used to be a frequent flier.

I heard from an airport insider in Jersey that Chris single handed caused a change in policy for Airport announcements. The reason was that he was for ever going to the information desk and asking them to tannoy messages for people with the following names (and worse). One day, the penny dropped, the messages like the people were pure fiction.

It helps if you say each one out loud:

That's not right...................... ......Sum Ting Wong
Are you harbouring a fugitive?...............Hu Yu Hai Ding?
See me asap............................ .....Kum Hia Nao
Stupid man...................................Dum Gai
Small horse..................................Tai Ni Po Ni
Did you go to the beach?.....................Wai Yu So Tan?
I bumped into a coffee table.................Ai Bang Mai Ni
I think you need a face lift.................Chin Tu Fat
It's very dark in here.......................Wai So Dim?
I thought you were on a diet............ ....Wai Yu Mun Ching?
This is a tow away zone......................No Pah King
Our meeting is scheduled for next week... ...Wai Yu Kum Nao?
Staying out of sight...................... ..Lei Ying Lo
He's cleaning his automobile.................Wa Shing Ka
Your body odour is offensive............... .Yu Stin Ki Pu
