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!

konablack: biketripbro 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)

anthrax76: biketripbro, as long as may available parts pa sa area mo (tires, tubes, rims) all is good. hassle lang naman kapag walang mabili.
