I have a few translations from Cantonese to English that I would appreciate anyone's help! Hanzi will be extra helpful too. Thank you!

zít móng ("zít" is sounds like to squeeze, and "móng" sounds like to forget)
káng séi (“séi” I believe is the character for death?)
jyút géi (“jyút” sounds like to rub, “géi” sounds like to remember)
sún chíng (I think this was a noun)
jím chó (jím sounds like salt and chó means wrong/fault)
zín gáak (zín sounds like zín in “dáy zín” for carpet)
yíng fún
bút héi (This isn’t to scoop up)
