Overheard as my parents were preparing to go out the other night. Most of this would have been in Cantonese, I think.
Mum: Daddy! Are you ready for the concert?
Dad: Yes. OK.
Mum: I'm.... ready now. (aside: this is a miracle - she spends ages in the bathroom, to the frustration of my father. Nothing particularly Chinese about that.)
Mum: You'd better pack your earplugs.
Mum: It could be bad.
Mum: Some of that music you don't like.
Mum: you know, the screeching... modern stuff.
