    The Anglo saxon says sound approximately close can liao.
    The Irish joined in the war with their Fooking ascent.
    The American tends to over cooked their food and enjoying eating them, just like they never care about proper pronounciation.

    Or 'Yves Saint Laurent'.

    Remember, French is a 'nasal' language, not that I know any French mind you.

    First... Spell it right. It's "Chandon", not "Chardon". So you already have part of your answer.

    the singaporean way for moet is: "this one. the $68 one" accompanied by stubby finger stabbing at the wine list.

    I've been to Domaine Chandon in Australia. The staff there said it is pronounced with the 't'.

    Couldn't remember why, but Wikipedia has the answer: Although Moet is a Frenchman, the name itself is Dutch.

    Come on..admit it..
    I know Singaporeans have problem pronouncing "Three" and "Tree".
    Let along Mo-ay(t) et Sha-don

    You know why I brought this up, because I feel like a kuku for not being able to pronounce "Merlot" in ang moh restaurant.
    When I took over the Wine list, I go for the shortest and simplest wine (Mer-lot).
    Me: I want mer-lot.
    Waitress: Mair-Law?
    Me: Nope, I want me-lot.
    Waitress: Milo?
    End up having to use my pen to circle the "Merlot" for the waitress.

    Important lesson learnt:

    When in French restaurant, must know at least how to pronounce "Cabernet Sauvignon" and "Pinot Noir"
    When in Italy restaurant, must know how to pronounce "Fettuccine" and "Lasagne".

    Like that people will think you very up class, even if you don't anything about wine or fine food.

    mo-aye shan-don.... although the 2 n in chandon isn't pronounced like how we pronounce n in english... it's a very nasal sound... quite hard to explain by typing...
