100 words for January


Everybody like fo walk around Chinatown
on New Year's Day, no mo nothing fo do,
no mo money.

Dey like go stand outside da window, watch da
cook chop char siu, whole roast duck,
make everybody like eat.

We walk past da market an see rambutan, lychee,
ripe yellow mangoes, wish we could taste.

We pass by one dim sum shop, everyting steaming
inside, manapua, lup cheong rolls, pork hash,
jin dui wit sesame seeds.

Afta, we go park an find one bench. Tutu bring
kaukau from her trunk. Fried fish, hapa rice,
hotdogs an one can pork an beans.
