My mom showed me this poem she brought back from her office.hehe.I find it very funny and interesting.When u wanna break up with ur bf or gf can use this poem also.Somemore got 2 version,hokkien and english.Almost same meaning.(the colour part i make up myself,since my mom tak photostate habis)

Marriage of Yesteryear

Hak ku koh chah lang,
Kahwin chuei mui lang,
Bou than kakee keing,
Bei hiau u ai cheing.
Knia sai khui khee kin,
Balu khua tiouk bin.
Tong kim bou siang khuan,
Bou hoh peh bou kuan.
I love you,you love me.
Ha,ha,ha,hee,hee,hee.
Movies,parties,chin happy,
Kui jit luan ai tua jolly.
Tapi haku ei couple,
Ang pou ho ho bo trouble.
Bou siang thana ei siau lien,
Uu see luan ,uu see lien.
When kah each other khee sien,
Hong hiam sim knua chit eh pien.
Sui lang kia kakee loh,
Lu chua ang,wah chua boh.

Marriage of Yesteryear

In order to marry in the dayz gone by
A matchmaker's aid could not be denied
With Hobson's choice they wouldn't know what's in store
Neither did they knoe how to fall in love before.
Only when the groom lifted up the veil
Would then the bride's face tell a tale
But things are very different nowadays
For the parents now don't have much say
Today it's 'I love you' and 'you love me'
Young couples enjoy each other's company.
Movie going and partying so happily.
Romancing each other unreservedly
Yesteryear time couple,
Red packet big big no trouble.
Not like youngsters nowadayz
sometimes fight, sometimes okay
When get bored with each other,
Suddenly the heart sayz 'go no further'.
Each other walk their own way,
i find wife ,u find gay
P.S. If u dun understand the meaning of any hokkien words up there ,just ask itchy.
