Hi, I am a real estate consultant and property agent working at FussFreeHome. I graduated with a degree in engineering but made a career switch to the more lucrative real estate industry. Nevertheless, I am still passionate about learning new things from computers to the universe. I will continue to ask questions and help others by answering some as a way to contribute back to the community.

comment Difference between 坏 and 破
I don't know where you get the translated meanings. But try understand the meanings using a Chinese dictionary and use the English one only as a reference. means bad or spoilt, not broken. But in English, anything that is broken is spoilt.

comment Why does 拉倒 mean “forget about it”?
I think 拉倒 is used as a figure of speech to imply bringing down something that you have put up earlier. It is usually spoken when you want to conditionally rescind an offer.

comment Confusion about bian 邊 and miàn 面
@Stan, in cases where there is overlap, I agree there could be some regional preference. But, I don't see how 镜子前边 is proper Chinese. You may like to provide your own answer if you are adamant about it :)

comment Confusion about bian 邊 and miàn 面
@Stan, based on my own experience, I have never heard anyone say 镜子前边. Neither have I heard of 书包里边. As such, I disagree that they are equal regardless of what is prescribed in 《现代汉语词典》. Although there are cases where the usage of 面 overlap with 边, we should learn to distinguish them for the sake of clarity.

comment What does 算你狠 mean?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about English. Chinese SE caters for people learning the Chinese Language. It is never a site for people to learn English.

comment Is 師奶 (see lai) strictly a Cantonese word? Is it a neutral word or does it have a negative connotation?
I know 師奶杀手 (auntie-killer) refers to a man who attracts older women with his boyish charm.
