Sorry, my Cantonese is not that good.

I know

"lay hai" means "you are"
and "bak chee" is some sort of negative adjective possibly meaning "crazy"

lay hai bak chee jai and should siew more


lay = you
hai = is/am/are (in chinese, is/ am / are are the same)

bak = white
chee = sticky
jai = son/ boy / guy ( here in Cantonese, ppl usually like to add 'jai' after noun or adj, maybe just represents' dude' or 'guy' in English, means younger)

e.g. lui = girl, but in Cantonese, ppl usually say, ' lui jai '

bak chee jai = idiot (it's just a slang)

siew = laugh

I guess you are fooled. :?
