Recent development suggest that vietnamese folks don't like to hang around anymore.

I'm sure that's a useful phrase in any language.

Sure it is a useful phrase.. Tells the difference between perversion (using the whole chicken) and being kinky (just using a feather)..

A friend had it written as her handle.. I know it sounds a bit off but "little chick" is a reference to someone we know.. 8)

i'm here. Well it doesn't make any formal/informal/slang meaning. Ppl just don't understand if you say "cho toi ga nho" which I guess should be "cho tôi gà nhỏ".

You cannot translate word by word like that :-D

Yup, so I've figured.. The problem is that I can't figure out how to type out words with the little ticks on top.. Thanks anyway :wink:
