But, you surely don't want to tell anyone to his face that he eats soft rice (jia nerng perng) because you will really be accusing him of living off someone's (immoral) earnings
And you yourself must not eat snake (jia zhua) because that could get you fired as what you will be doing is play truant or steal time from work when you really shouldn't.
At least don't make it a habit of eating snake!
It is all right if you have to eat yourself (jia kia kee) because you won't be engaging in autosarcophagy (self-cannibalism) - you will only have to rely on yourself without any help from others.
It is also all right if you want to eat table (jia toh) because that really is attending a wedding dinner.
I think it is not just the Hokkein but Chinese people, generally, who love eating - what else will they not eat, including eating snakes and tables?
Haha...now I need to go eat wind (jia hong) - go on a holiday!
Too much unhealthy eating is making me 'siow liao' - bonkers already!
Lu jia pah buay?
