I recently took a poll of everyone’s favorite word or phrase in Chinese. I’ve included the characters and meaning of each person’s selection, our Chinese names, and a photo of the poll itself.
奔腾 Bennett: 意外和明天不知道哪个先来。A disaster or tomorrow, you never know which will come first.
高暮花 Muskaan: 星 Star
荷美丽 Mercedes: 鱼和熊掌不可兼得。You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
彼得 Peter: 开卷有益。Reading makes you a better person.
安诺 Noah: 信心 Confidence
方圆 Thomas: 我很喜欢柚子。I really like pomelos (big yellow fruit).
唐曼丽 Melissa: 缘分 Fate
安星宇 Nik: 糖醋里鸡 Sweet and sour chicken
李丽花 Ellie: 越来越 More and more
董中澄 Amanda: 爱心卡！Elderly bus card; the thing the machine says when a senior citizen scans their free bus pass.
Thanks to everyone for contributing and to my homestay brother Domi for helping me with the characters.
