it sounds like ....
are there any man (gentleman) , during this week, something......
because "gno hoi ye gnoi" ..... doesn't sound like anything
it can sound like working at night
or it can sound like going to countryside....

and "ga" just indicate an expression, it can be a question , and it can be used when someone is saying something that he/she is assuming it's right, or even he/she is absolutely right

This brought up my curiosity. I am a native Cantonese speaker but couldn't understand what this sentence is. Can you provide the context in which such dialog was spoken? It would make the translation easier.

I am just wildly guessing

yow mo = whether of not (a question)
yat = one day
gao namyun = play (or have a relationship) with a guy?

hei nee gou sigi = ?????? I couldn't get this portion

gno hoi ye = I can
gnoi = love?
ga = just an exclamation
