Please log on to the following website for more information. http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/2/6/nation/106845...

Re: 欢喜欢喜就好 (Hua Hee Everyday)

It is quite entertaining and uses the Hokkien commonly spoken in the Klang Valley.

Site invaded by spams.

Dear Site Adminstrator,

Your site has lately been invaded by too many spams. Hope something could be done to get rid of them & block new ones from coming in. Thanks.

Best regards,

Re: Let's fight to get Hokkien to be on Malaysian Media

I'm very 'hua hee' that my various complaints in the press & directly to the TV stations in the past, have in someway contributed to more Hokkien programmes being now shown over the Malaysian TV stations i.e. NTV7, 8TV & Astro Hua Hee Dai (Channel 333). What is however sorely missing are the Hokkien...

Re: A Hokkien Stage Play In KLPAC

I went to KLPAC to watch the play but couldn't get any ticket. It was played to full house! Anyway, thanks to those for their great effort to put up the play to help promote the Hokkien language in some way. There must be many Hokkiens in KL who would love to watch the play in their own mother tongue.

Supression of Hoklo (Hokkien) language by the KMT Government

It came as a shock for me to learn that "Taiwan has proficiency certification system for every language including Mandarin, Hakka and indigenous languages, but not Hoklo (Taiwanese Hokkien)" which is the language of the overwhelming majority of Taiwanese. The scrapping by the Chinese Nationalist Par...

A truly beautiful message which shd be read by all Hokkiens

What a truly beautiful message which I think would be more pertinent to be posted under the thread "Taiwanese Hokkiens should unite to preserve their heritage (culture & language)". I believe this message would make quite an impact if it can be translated into Chinese and published in major newspape...

Taiwanese Hokkiens should unite to preserve their heritage

My greatest fear of the Hokkien language & culture slowly dying even in Taiwan where Taiwanese Hokkiens form the overwhelming majority of the population seems to be coming true with the KMT gaining 3/4 control of the Taiwanese legislature lately which will give the Mainlanders in collaboration with ...

Ya, you're right. The programmes are mainly from Taiwan. Where else can we get TV programmes in Hokkien and Hakka except in Taiwan? The Malaysian national TV network seems so pro-Cantonese when it comes to Chinese programming, maybe due to vested interest involved in the supply of the programmes mai...

Launch of dedicated Hokkien TV Channel (No.333) over Astro

Good news for Hokkiens and even Hakkas in Malaysia who have long been deprived of Chinese programmes in their own languages over the national and private TV networks whose Chinese programmes are largely in Cantonese though with increasing Mandarin contents. For your info, on 13th October, 2007, Astr...

Movie using mainly Hokkien dialogue

Good news for the Hokkiens who are dying to watch movie using mainly Hokkien language. A Singaporean Director Royston Tan has produced a movie called '881' with dialogue mainly in Hokkien which turned out to be a blockbuster in Singapore. It is now showing in the Malaysian cinema circuit by the name...
