Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.
Google has a translate feature
the thing to remember about fortune cookies is that they are extraordinarily cheep. the translations are often wrong/gibberish. Also, there are at least two flavors of chinese. and I seem to recall their being 4. Cantonese and Mandarin for example.
Learning "Chinese" from a fortune cookie....
Fortune Cookie was accurate. Maybe she thought you were calling her a Pumpkin?
This link speaks the chinese characters...
it only works if you have iTunes installed
One night about 10-years ago we went out to our favorite Chinese restaurant with my nephew. When the waitress came he ordered in perfect Chinese. After she left I asked him when he learned Chinese as he took French in High School. He told me he decided China was going to play a major role in our economy some day so he took it while in Medical School. A few years later he met a Korean girl who came to the US for school and they got married. He now speaks a bunch of different languages including several dialects of both Chinese and Korean.
