Using the word 'Mien' will suffice, but when referring to handpulled noodles, then we'll use 'LaMien' for finesse.
Sway Tsiao = dumplings
Exercise: We had 3 bowls of LaMien, 3 bottles of cola, and a plate of dumplings. Translation (San keh LaMien, San keh Cola, Eee keh SwayTsiao).
Was that easy or what?
Note: Mandarin, like many languages, is very much dependent on proper pronunciation, such that a minor change in inflection changes the whole meaning. So it is important to get it right the first time.
However, unlike English whose grammar and tenses are much complicated, the structure of Mandarin (or Nihonggo) is so straight-forward that learning the BASICS is actually EASY.
The only challenge actually is MASTERING the language since the vocabulary is so large, and the myriad of the way a word can be pronounced.
It pays to know a little bit of foreign languages here and there, for shopping and dining purposes. Enjoy!

anthrax76: strand, they diss mtb users on what grounds? dahil dapat pang bundok? riding speed? nakakalat sa kalsada?
Feb 10, 2019 8:07:54 GMT 8
strand: anthrax76 dapat pang bundok. same sh*t, diff day. started off when somebody bought an RS Tk30 fork. pero di naman daw gagamitin sa bundok. may pic kasi sya sa road.

strand: what can the guy do, if for example, wala naman syang truck get to the trails? kung padyak to trails siya? etc. some people, really.
Feb 10, 2019 20:26:09 GMT 8
anthrax76: yeah well, sa mga ganyan ang sagot ko lang is 1) enough ang kalsada ng maynila para matagtag ka parang sa trail 2) tama ka, eh by the time makarating ako sa trails, laspag na ako dahil wala akong sasakyan maliban sa bike.

anthrax76: 3) affordable transport ang mtb vs rb.
Feb 11, 2019 0:18:25 GMT 8
strand: At para sa limited ang budget, mtb is the more practical option for recreational riding. Masaya nga pag maraming naka-mtb.
Feb 11, 2019 0:26:45 GMT 8
simplej0ys: pakitaan mo pa ng mas maraming picture ng MTB riders na nasa kalsada para gumanda araw niya! hahahaha

konablack: the problem with most roadies i encounter on the streets is that they will try to race with you as much as possible (target practice kumbaga), i just encountered one this morning, nung nalagpasan nya ako, sabi nya "holi", saka ko lang nagets na 'huli' pala
Feb 11, 2019 11:08:56 GMT 8
konablack: di rin natin masisisi yun iba kasi may mga MTB users na may attitude, walang harmony sa kalsada, karamihan nag uunahan
Feb 11, 2019 11:20:54 GMT 8
strand: OK. Di ko pa na-experience yung may biglang kumarera sa akin when I am on the road. weird siguro ng feeling? ...ay teka, mabagal pala ako. hahaha, auto-loser.

gat3keeper: Peeps .. oks pa ba bumili 26er na old model ?
Feb 12, 2019 6:58:29 GMT 8
konablack: gat3keeper for me it's a yes as long as it serves its purpose, ang titignan mo lang ay yung possibility ng upgrading kasi magiging mahirap mag hanap ng parts if ever mag aupgrade ka na (just my opinion)
Feb 12, 2019 7:05:33 GMT 8
anthrax76: gat3keeper, as long as may available parts pa sa area mo (tires, tubes, rims) all is good. hassle lang naman kapag walang mabili.
Feb 12, 2019 9:05:47 GMT 8
gat3keeper: Sir Anthrax, nawala na yung folding bike thread?
Feb 14, 2019 11:28:12 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...actually dehins ko alam kung meron ngang thread
Feb 16, 2019 22:17:38 GMT 8
anthrax76: wala sa search?
