    well my family's from the south, du ma means a cuss word. Mai is to describe someone in a rude manner, an is to eat, cuc is another bad word, and cho is dog. so therefore, don't say it....sigh...i never shoulda wrote that lol

    ghet cua nao troi chao cua do.
    basically saying if you hate something/someone you'll get the same back.

    my mom says it to me when i'm being racist, so basically she said whatever race i hate will be the race i'll get, like marriage, friends, etc.

    Ahhh, I know this one.
    They play it at the funerals and stuff but, yeah.
    I think it means like your dad's effort towards raising you is like a waterfall and your mom's is the water in the waterfall. image
    I'm sure someone can give a better translation but, I tried. image

    Trans: A Father's effort in raising you is like Thai Son moutain. ( it is very large, huge and .... yeah ^^;;;). A Mother's effort in teaching you is like water in ............

    Nguon`: means a place where water starts. I dont know how to explain it, its hard. But the sentence means your mother effort in raising you is also very important, special. ^^;;;;

    I have one sentence: Bau` oi thuong lay' bi' cung`, tuy rang` khac' giong' nhung chung mot. dan`.

    Trans: Oh gourd, love the pumpkin, Though of different species, you share the same trellis (credit to trans at dict.vietfun.com)

    Meaning: eventhough we are of different races or color, help and love each other because we are all human.

    Hahaha although I was born and raised in Vn and now I'm living in the U.S, but I think it's really tough to translate vietnamese into eng or backward. If sombody wanna me to translate eng into vietnamse, I surely can, but if from vietnamese to eng, I'll defend.

    I'm just adding on to what some people put already.


    Translation: The effort your father put into raising you is like the Thai Son mountain. The effort your mother put into you is like the water flowing out from where the source of the water begins.

    It's basically something like that. It means that the effort that you mom and dad put into raising you and caring for you is as big as a mountain and as important as how we need water and the source where the water comes from.


    QUOTEthua vo dieu kien

    That literally means losing without anymore request.

    Vo means without.
    Dieu kien means request or a negotiation.

    That saying is say whenever you're having a negiotation and a bet with someone and you say to them that they will lose without any further request because you beat them to the point where they're speechless. Lol. I hope that helps.
