there was this word "li li lum lum" (where li sounds like the mandarin word "li" as in "na li" and "lum" sounds like to water something [as in, lum fah, to water flowers]. It was used in context of something dirty. I think it might mean like messy/unorganized/ or dirty. hanzi?

the other word was "chao fun" and was used to describe a charity concert (like the one in HK), or some sort of concert where singers perform. hanzi?

and the last word was "jyun4 jan1" i think are the tones...

thanks =)
