I tried learning fen4 from dailycharacter (thanks omly!), but she didn't have a clue what I was saying. Even when I told her the English she mentioned some completely different word. Eventually, I remembered that powder was the same except the tone, so we worked it out from there. It appears you don't say fen4 on its own - its fen4 nu4.
I got powder a bit wrong at one point and ended up saying shit!

I need to do some revision - I've forgotten all the other ones.

Yes it is cheeky. You're spamming my journal. And other people's, I see. It's not on. I'm deleting your comment.
