So i will try and put a few good Sichuan Hua phrases up here from time to time …

such as this fine one right here:

zhaan hua’r kai huang qiang!

zhaan hua’r is that dude, wherever there is some commotion or excitement, his ass is there. talking as if he was the only one to witness/take part in whatever has everybody up in arms. “Man, i was just walkin, mindin my own biznass, when all of a sudden, these blonde women just started fallin from the sky all around me …”

kai huang qiang is what the zhaan hua’r says: bullshit. he be speakin, but everybody knows its just some made up self-serving nonsense.

literal translation: zhaan hua’r:standing flower; kai huang qiang:shoot a yellow gun.

funny note: kai also means open, so people here sometimes get a kick out of saying “open yellow gun!” at someone who is talking shit.
