    My favorite Chinese expression is ‘pai ma pi’ [hitting the horse’s behind] which essentially means sucking up. It was the first one I learnt so that is why it is probably my favorite. I am glad to see it is on your list!

    These are hilarious.

    Andy’s Popo had one where she called him something like “the best part of the goose” instead of “the apple of her eye.”
