Journey to the West: A Comedy in Teochew!

We all know about Sai Iu Gi, aka, Journey to the West with the Monkey King, Sung Ngou Kong. But have you ever watched it in Teochew? I know what you're thinking: I like the story, but its bit boring. Fear not my friends, this version is a comedy! I just saw the first clip and it's hilarious. =) Enjoy, everyone!

Funky Teochew Song from Hong Kong

September - can't believe it's September already. This post is about another group of folks  who are preserving Teochew. This time, in Hianggàng (Hong Kong)! This Teochew language class put together a fun song about Teochew identity and culture. It may be out of tune, but hey, it's the content and spirit that counts right? They did it for New Years I believe, but this song is for any time of year!
