This was on the PGHK podcast page, but I thought some people might find it interesting:

Great that John Ong and the Penang Hokkien podcast are getting more publicity.

However, the Chinese text is still way beyond my abilities. I wouldn't even be able to say that I could catch the general drift of what's being said. :roll:.

Have a look at what babelfish made of it (mostly half-comprehensible gibberish, but at least more than I myself can extract out of the Chinese text): http://uk.babelfish.yahoo.com/translate ... =Translate

Actually the link to it on the PGHK page suggests that we put it through a translator just for fun, because the translation is ridiculous!

Haha! I didn't know that, so very funny that I actually did it!
