TEH LUM PAH CHI SAHT
One of the most graphic expressions in this dictionary, it is also one of the most inspired. Literally, it translates from Hokkien as “to commit suicide by squeezing your testicles”. The Hokkien equivalent of hara-kiri, it expresses profound regret and frustration, and is often said after a confession of having done something monumentally stupid.
“Ah Beng accidentally threw his winning 4D ticket into the incinerator? Wah lau, like that he might as well t’eh lum pah chi saht.”
