Last ride for the bride



Dear Nicole,
This post is for you.  Remember that time you helped throw a bachelorette party for your friend and everything was adorable?

Dear Everyone Else,
Sorry if you get bored, but if you don’t love pictures of cute things, I’m not sure what you’re doing looking at this blog.  I still like you, and I’ll be sure to post something less cute next time.

Moe Mon Tai

If you happen to get yourself into a situation that you aren’t necessarily fond of, but it’s not the end of the world, go ahead and try out the phrase for “No Problem”.

Say it like this: Moe Mon Tai.

I believe it’s normally used to diffuse a situation, but I haven’t gotten myself into any real issues with anyone, so I like to use it when something small happens, like when the magazine stand doesn’t have any Ying Mon magazines.

“Ying Mon?” -Me, pointing at the magazines.

“No.”-Handy magazine stand dude/lady

“Moe Mon Tai. Ng Goy” -Me

WHOA.  Did I just toss you a 2-fer?  Sure did.  “Ng Goy” means a plethora of things, I use it all the time, and just hope it’s the right situation.
Try pronouncing the Ng part as if you just said “Sing” but with out the S and the I.  Goy is pronounced more like “Guy” but that’s just how I hear it.  It can mean any thing from “Thank you, Please excuse me, Please, Can I, Oops…” and that’s all I know of right now.  If you want someone to get out of your way,  you toss a “Je Je” on the end.
Say that like, “Ng Guy zhee zhee.”.

Thanks for tuning into Mumbling Monday.  Tune in next week to see if I’ve learned anything new or if I just let this week’s 2-fer ride out.

Thank Goodness for Libraries

Minneapolis Central Library. AKA, "The Most Confusing Building"

If you’re reading this, I’m going to go ahead and guess that  you’ve gotten here by accident, or you’re one of my darling friends.

Either way, WELCOME!  My name is Nicole, and I like you already, because you’re reading this.

Since I’ll be moving out to Hong Kong in a week, people have asked if I have a blog, somewhere they can keep up with what’s going on.  Turns out, I didn’t have one, so I did what I do best.  I headed to the library to learn more about how to set up this thing.  Typical.

So, you will be seeing changes because I have a feeling blogging will be an adventure of its own, please  stick around and hang with me.

My goal is to give you a glimpse into my life, things I like and things that I think you might like.  Thanks for tuning in!
