A visitor asked me what do I mean by ‘Sohai’. I bet he is reading my post on Sohai Streamyx Technician – Why Send a Sohai to My House? So he must be a non-chinese and I am very happy to explain to all the people in the world who does not know what this fantastic word means.
When you see the word Sohai, you can replace it with ‘Idiot’, i.e. Idiot Streamyx Technician – Why Send an Idiot to My House.
Easy? But my friend, you better be careful when you use this word because it is not a ‘friendly’ word, it is a rude word.
Sohai is made up of 2 Cantonis word, So and Hai.
So = Stupid
Hai = The organ of your mum where your father put something in and get you out from it. Like a Coke vending machine, you put RM1.50 and you get a can of coke out from it. So that organ, your father put some liquid in and get you out from it. If you don’t know what is it, ASK YOUR MUM, SOHAI! Ask your father if you don’t know what liquid he put in.
That’s why sohai is consider a rude word. But it is very common among the Cantonis speaker.
- Sohai! Do you know how to spell Hippopotamus?
- Look at that Sohai, he wear a red underweer.
Sometimes we can use the word on ourself.
- Today I am very Sohai, I locked my car key inside the car.
Sometimes we can call our friend sohai
- Ui Sohai, where to eat supper?
- I put soufulow nickname in my address book as Sohai Fu.
(It makes friends closer to each other because only close friends will not get pissed-off with such word. Like in English, you can call your buddy, “Hey ass hole!” Try that on a stranger and see if you can still keep your balls)
There are 2 common variations of Sohai
1. Dai Sohai - Dai means big. So dai sohai means big idiot. Soufulow is a dai sohai because he typed self-employed as self-employer in his resume. [All those YouTube movies that you watch where the Americans doing some stuns but failed are all dai sohai, i.e. jump from building to building and fell, skate down the stairs handle and fell, burn their own pubic hair... All the fellas in American Funniest Home Videos that send in videos of someone fell is also dai sohai. All the people who laugh because someone fell is also dai sohai.]
2. Sei Sohai – Sei means die. So it is an extra curse word on top of sohai. You use it because of hatred. You can called a policeman that saman you a sei sohai. If somebody knocks your car from the back you can call him sei sohai. If a politician say your mum bocor every month, you can call him sei sohai.
So you have learned a new word today, use more in your blog! If your visitors ask you what is Sohai, you can answer them, “Wah! Sohai you also don’t know ar! You are really a dai sohai!” Wahahahaha.
