22.08.2012 | 四字標題

[Volume 7 Issue 8, #1514]
我呢個blog其實係以中文開始, 2008年6月尾先開始有兩種語文, 不過標題都仲係中文.. 如果你有留意, 我啲標題都係同一個格式, 先係日期, 然之後在2008年6月之後, 全部統一用四個字.. 除咗雙語之外, 四字標題可算係我呢個blog嘅小小個人特色.. 有人曾經問我, 寫兩種語言會唔會難?? 唔難, 我都係寫好其中一個, 然後再直接翻譯成另外一個.. 雖然好多人都話, 中文嘅寫得比較生動, 哈哈!! 不過我要強調, 有時後要諗個貼切嘅四字標題出嚟, 仲難過寫內容囉~~ :p
i started my blog with posts in chinese, only after late june 2008 that i started to write in two languages, but the post titles are still in chinese.. if you are observant, you'll notice my post titles use a common format, starting with the date, and since june 2008 i standardized to use four chinese words as the title.. besides bilingual, i think 4-word title is a little signature attribute of my blog.. some asked if it's tough to write in two languages?? definitely not, because i usually finished writing either one, and then right away translate to the other.. though some have commented that the chinese version is more fun to read, haha!! anyway, i want to stress that sometimes it's even tougher to think of a meaningful 4-word title than writing the contents~~ :p

    2. The name is HS and always surfing 24/7. HS only enjoys being the first and not the champion. Maybe SK should give her a medal.

    3. Good morning everyone :)

    6. wah, so nice. All of you have raya break except me. But I get to read SK's post every morning before I go to work.
      But why SK suddenly started to write in two languages in 2008.

      Delete
    7. this is because he started to know Kamala in 2008.. kamala don't know chinese and SK that time doesn't know tamil.. so English is the language that connect..
      soon they start talking in body language.. ahem there ahem here.. and then will be grrr grrr grrr .. all the machine sounds talk..

      Ya lor, SK. What inspired you to blog in dual language ah? Not Kamala is it? come out, tell us the story why suddeny bi-lingua

      Delete
    10. You are wrong SP....That Thambee SK started in English but Kamala only reads Chinese, so he had to post in Chinese. Ask SK to post Kamala's photo to show everyone his well kept secret.

      Plus, at least at car park, no need to think about stray dogs. Pet dogs too. There are way too many pet dogs left unleashed and roaming the streets at my neighbourhood. :(

    10. 3rd day of raya and Lina resumed her running already? So fast? Is it to burn all the fat consumed durin these few days? Kekeke!

      Happy is always the first commenter, regardless weekday or weekend or public holidays. Out of 10 times, she's 9.5 times early. I can't catch up with her although I raised this matter before.

      I would love to earn extra points too, but I can't write in Chinese so I will spam in BM and English. Okay, mou?

    6. I love this holiday to bits, because I am so relaxed. I don't feel like going back to work at all. Sob....sob... reality is cruel.

      Spamming in 2 languages, but my pinyin is so bad. I have returned all my pinyin to my Chinese teacher. I can read, but I can't write. I will try when time permits.

  7. Yeah, noticed those standard four words. Was wondering whether the title in Chinese has an impact on your posts on the search engines in the English language.

    1. true, most people search in English. If SK can also put a 4 or more English words for his title, that would be much beneficial for himself too.

    2. I noticed too of the four letters titles.

      I wonder if I can throw in extra by requesting SK to put in four letter English title too for the post title.

      give sk more challenge mah. after all he give us more challenge by havin more guidelines in commenting. *evil grins"

    3. Yes, that would be nice for SK to write the title in English too. That would give us the gist of the post already.

    4. actually yes it really bring a big impact.
      like last time i put a post on 我放半粒
      it was a great hit...

      Delete
    5. Oh, I didn't think about the search engine, too. Most ppl search using English words, unless those from chinese language country.

      Meow, I agree with you. SK must figure out the equivalent 4 English words.

      Son goes back to FIL's house after school before going to Sekolah Agama. So going to a school nearby FIL & our workplace is the best choice. If anything on at school, no need to take leave, just go there for a few minutes only. Easier than going to school in Balakong, right? ;p
