Li1 Kor4 Boh3 Wah1 Kor4, How pitiful! How ironical!

Scenario: A Hokkien man from outstation visits some Hokkien relatives who speak the mother tongue daily.

Relative 1: Always responds in Mandarin when spoken to because of slight variation in accent and vocabulary.Refuses to use Hokkien to communicate.

Relative 2: Always converse in Hokkien comfortably and ignore the minor differences.

Some Indian and Malay friends - are proud to use Hokkien to converse. There is even an Indian singer who sings in perfect Hokkien Taiwanese style.

Hokkien parents now speak to their children in Mandarin or English. Nothing wrong about this. What is wrong is that they fail to transmit their mother tongue. We just got to address this issue before it is too late. Two children recently claimed to be Hokkiens but they cannot speak Hokkien at all. Only Mandarin and Cantonese. Their reason for their claim - because their father is a Hokkien.
