The other thing I want to point out is the Malay word 'mana'.



Mana uh... In Malay 'mana ada'.



Actually, the correct word is 'Na uh...' 哪有



Remove the 'ma' from mana.

You guys might be interested to watch the 'Axian special trip to Jinmen 金門'.



It seems that some of the locals there also use 'pasar' and 'lui'.



The explanation from the local guide (not me!) was that these words are imported from Nanyang (SEA) Chinese and are Malay words.



This is the famous 'Axian' show where he visits many food stalls in Malaysia.

Regarding 'sik fung', it it certainly Malaysian Cantonese.



Wonder how it got into the vocabulary and what is the exact origin.



In China, Cantonese use 'lui yau' or 'dau fung'.
