Cantonese Culture (Sally Yeh, Yip Sih-man)

Post by Laan Yaa Mo » November 21, 2022, 5:40 am

A few weeks ago there were a couple of quizzes about Hong Kong. One of the names that popped up was Sally Yeh (Cantonese=Yip Sih-man). Here are four interviews, in English, with the singer who grew up in Victoria, British Columbia.

I'll look at it tonight.
Toby Esterhase: You're an old spy in a hurry, George. You used to say they were the worst.
George Smiley: Oh they are, Toby, they are.

But thanks anyway old bean.

She is a very articulate and thoughtful lady.
And has a very pleasant voice, being able to hold a tune.

Also doesn't need to flail about while pleasing her audience. :D

Well, you never know...a wink and a pinch on the backside might help pull off the trick. Don't give up yet.
