canto typing

"you might be saying, 'i love you' to your girlfriend in cantonese, but it will still sound like you're fighting. it's just our tone. we always sound like we're in a shouting match. mandarin is so mellow. cantonese is strong and edgy."
- howard lee

for those of you who, like me, have minimal cantonese reading/writing capabilities, online cantonese is perfect. "ngor oi lei" instantly becomes "我愛你".
