ANNOUNCEMENT

I have launched a series of blog posts called Featured Mommypreneurs in collaboration with mommypreneurs (i.e. mommies entrepreneurs). Let me know if you're interested to join me to feature your products / services. :)

 

 

OLD!

It's great to have a sister who knows how to annoy you while you're about to drive to work. :P

Actually I annoyed her first. Haha.

As she was sitting into the car, I greeted her, "Good morning, obaasan."

Then, she shot back, "Good morning to you too, ajumma."

Adui. Hahahahaha!


In Japanese, obaasan (おばあさん) means "auntie" or "granny". The usage of this term can be offensive to women as it implies their youth has faded or refers to an annoying bossy middle-aged woman.

In Mandarin, it's called 歐巴桑 (oubasang), a borrowed term from the Japanese language.

In Korean, ajumma (아줌마) means "married women" or unofficially speaking, "women who look old enough to get married" (it's common that people are heavily judged by their appearance in Korea). Great article from here.

In BM, there's another kinda offensive term called andartu. an = anak. dar = dara. tu = tua. So, andartu means anak dara tua. LOL!!

Okay, then I drove to work, feeling young. Muahahahahaha!
