    How does marrying a Teochew wife makes one a pure breed Teochew?

    Most Penang Hokkiens will also attest to their "pure breed Hokkien" thinghy but just ask them to give the Hookien terms for the following products / things : toilet (jamban?), soap (sabun?) and kueh (kueh?) wakakaka....

    Interesting how the Selangor KL Teochew Association's website is only in Chinese. Is it implying that if you don't read Chinese, you're not welcome?

    Talking

    I'm a Teochew from Penang. Teochew on my father's side. Mother's Hokkien. Does it mean I'm a half Teochew? Unfortunately lost the knack to converse in that dialect. My grandmother used to force us to speak Teochew so that we won't loose our cultural heritage. Ah well, years of English and Penang Hokkien put paid to it.

    A friend of mine who's with the Teochew Association of Hawai'i helped initiate Teochew literacy classes for the many multi-generation American born Teochews who have never had the opportunity to hear the language spoken. Maybe this is something our local associations should pick up as well.

    In my case, I am able to understand the language but am not able to speak it, having grown up speaking Penang Hokkien, Mandarin, Malay and English.

    I am an Eng Choon Hokkien, both parents were also Eng Choon. Married another Hokkien from the Uah Mng (backdoor) group. (Maybe ex-CM Koh Tsu Koon is also a Uah Mng Hokkien - backdoor minister... wakakaka!)

    Never been good friends with our Teochew neighbors - maybe we always teased them with the now famous "teochew nang, ka chng ang ang" pranks... hmmm those childhood days!

    In JB you have to have a sponsor to get to be a member of teochew assoc. since my dad pass away, none of my family members are members. My ancestor came from china in the late 1800s, till now all teochews ... till my kids

    The Selangor-KL Teochew Association requires a sponsor too. Does Chia Hak Soon want to do the honours?
