    I hope Abu improves soon. I’m really impressed that you made such an effort to learn her dialect. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is!

    There’s just something about grandmothers. Andy’s Popo is the only reason I was tempted to learn Cantonese. (Because I’m pretty sure I don’t want to know what his mother and father are saying about me!)

    Oh, no! I hope she gets well soon!

    PS. Abu is also grandma in Suzhou dialect! 😀

    This comment is a little late but I am hoping Abu is feeling better now.

    I remember when you posted the post on learning John’s dialect. Learning other languages or even a dialect shows a lot of love and it also helps slow down Alzheimer’s and dementia.
