Can any of the Chinese readers be so kind as to tell me what the phrase "diu lay lo mo" mean? As it is bandied about everyday I presume that it is some term of endearment or some such? Thank you.

It's an endearment to one's mother and commonly used in Hong Kong among all classes. The term has been believed carried down from the matrilineal society from ancient China. Besides, It's the signature of Fortune Chan, our fisherman member.

As far as I know it's only a cantonese cuisine: ox cock double-boiled in a pig's cunt

It would be better braised in that fake Lea & Perrins sauce that is used for spring rolls, with a dash of rice wine.

Tasty! :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump:

Anybody tried the three penis wine? And the seal penis pill ? I simply love the southern barbarians' imagination on what they can swallow.

Hai means cunt I can tell you. And gau meaning dick. An example for the eager learner:

Diu Lai Lo Mo Hai

p.s. May be this thread has to be moved to fight club....

A list of 39. No 30 is another classic. You have got to hand it to the cantonese that they are very imaginative in insulting each other.

Webdog, since you mentioned Chinese wine...don't you think it remarkable that a race of people who have produced such a variety of delicious cuisine, have been unable to come up with any drinkable booze?

Just to prove me wrong, why don't you host an outdoor mou tai evening when the weather gets cooler? A hot mou tai punch might be nice.

We could move on to a mass Filipino BBQ afterwards. And I don't mean BBQ'ed Filipinos! :lol:

Have you tried the chinese rocket fuel that fires the astronaut to the space? Apparently they are selling it also in USA, god bless America.

Quote:
Red White and Blue Baijiu
Move over wine coolers, make way bourbon whiskey, the newest intoxicant to entice American drinkers is Chinese erguotou?!

Beijing's largest producer of China's trademark spirit - a cheap, popular firewater brewed from fermented sorghum - has hit U.S. store shelves. Some 450 cases of Hong Xing (Red Star)-brand erguotou were recently exported to the home of martinis and gin-and-juice, the Beijing Youth Daily reports. Red Star, China's largest producer of baijiu, is hoping to become the first Chinese booze to become a household name in the U.S.

Erguotou is a clear, highly potent liquor which contains about 60 percent alcohol by volume.

Red Star erguotou, typically packaged in clear green glass bottles, is already available in more than 20 countries worldwide, but mostly appeals to an overseas Chinese clientele. The company's foray into the U.S. market, which includes selling erguotou and a few new liquors tailored to American imbibers' taste, is being led by a Sino-U.S. joint venture. Red Star is also preparing to build a distillery in the U.S.

No, I've not tried it webdog.
I did try a new Tsingtao beer this evening though - a green coloured Spirulina Beer, of all things! Not bad at all actually, but you'd be peeing green if you had too much of it ..haha. Perhaps the brew masters had in mind ol' Hunter when they concocted that eh? I recall that he used to make a vile looking drink out of spirulina.... that guy really takes the prize!
