I saw a thread in Nikon forum that interests me, been wanting to ask for so long, well here goes.

What do they mean by:
kopi O - this one I know (coffee no milk)
teh O - same as above (tea no milk)
milo peng ?
kopi siew tai mai kopi hoon ?

I am sure there are many others... care to share?

Ok i translate what my avatar said!

Customer: Tao Kay = Boss!
Boss: Ai lim simi? = What you want to drink?
Customer: Kopi gao, = Coffee thick
Customer: Siew dai, = Less sugar
Customer: Mai Tng, = Don't want sugar
Customer: Mai gu ni, = Don't want milk
Customer: Mai sng, = Don't want ice
Customer: Mai kopi hoon, = Don't want coffee powder
Customer: Mai puay, = Don't want cup
Customer: Wa mai lim liao. = I don't want to drink liao
Boss: nb....= This you should know la. :bsmilie:
