598531899 commented on the word quali
"Qualification" in short. Usually used among white-collars in Hong Kong, with a doubtful tone, wondering if someone is qualified to do something:
1. Has he the quali to get that job?
2. What kind of quali are you? (meaning "Who do you think you are?")

Hong Kong LEGislative COuncil in its blended form.
598531899 commented on the word jackso
Means "discount, concession, coupon" or the like. Originated from Cantonese Chinese joeuk9 so3 and we simply adopted the English spelling to represent this phrase.
E.g. Without discounts or other jackso, Mom seldom goes to that supermarket.
598531899 commented on the word chok
Another Cantonese phonetic realisation in English orthographic representation. It's different from "choke", "to chok" is "to make effort in posing or making cool faces".
Another meaning of "to chok" (with an object) is "to try hard (to achieve something)", especially to key in cheats in videos games.
1. The model chok-ed so hard that her face cramped.
2. Tim spent three days to chok the cheats for "Doom 2".
598531899 commented on the word hea
"Hea" is neither an English nor a Chinese word; rather it is just a phonetic realisation meaning "procrastinate" under Cantonese context, but usually we use the orthographical representation as "hea".
E.g. He sits at home all day doing nothing -- he's simply hea-ing.
