Hokkien lang, please invite more Hokkien friends to check on Hokkien materials on my website and Youtube. Mother tongue is so meaningful. Cantonese people in Kwangtung, China, recently protested against the attempt to do away with their mother tongue and replace with Mandarin. Will Hokkien people have the same sentiments? No, no, we are not against Mandarin but our mother tongue should be preserved and pass down to the next generation. It should not be phased out. That's the point. I am back posting new materials. I had an operation and was hospitalized for couple of weeks. Hence, the inactivity. Tui4 put1 chu3

I wanted to continue with part 3 of addressing relatives but then decided against it. To give a fresh focus, I change topic. Hope you enjoy.
