There was a vocab word that meant something like "stubby, short" fingers that was something like "faan zaam tao" or something. Anyone heard of it? Hanzi?

There was another word for Japanese want to be or something "gaa tao/tou" - any one heard of that? Hanzi?

gaa4 tau4架頭or gaa4 zai2架仔, the way Cantonese dispicably call Japanese
