Day 256 : Act Virgin

When it comes to “acting virgin”, no language describes it better than a Hokkien phrase that suddenly popped into my head today.

Pronounced as “lao chee gay way”, a word-by-word translation goes something like this… lao (old) chee (vagina) gay (pretend / fake) way (narrow / tight).

The phrase is used as an insult to describe people who pretend to be morally upright and uptight when they are actually the village bicycle, everyone has taken it for a ride. Me no like lao chee gay way people.
