I hope you’re doing well! I am actually happier than other days because I’m just super excited about this post! This time I’m actually gonna teach you something, you kiddos!
But I’m not alone, today I have the one and only, IRREPLACEABLE… Wambby!!!! 🎉🎉 She’s very friendly and hilarious, she’s just argh!!!!! Follow her blog, I beg y’all!!!!!
Today we’re going to guess slang! But not just slang. She’s going to ask me 5 Malaysian expressions translated literally to English for me to guess what they mean and I’m gonna go the same thing to her with Spanish slang! Let’s go!
Guessing Malay and Spanish Slang:
We’re both gonna be given an expression and we’re gonna guess what it is, and give an example of when to use it, yay!
It’s time for me to guess Malay slang!
“Like a boiled prawn”
You have no time or will anymore, like it’s too late for you.
i.e: “No Martin, you can’t try anymore, just like a boiled prawn :P”
I know it makes no sense.
– When someone’s face is red
i.e: “Awww her face is like a boiled prawn!”
It’s like a funny way to say you’re tall and you always reach places to get things.
i.e: She can play basketball, she has long arms
– When someone is stealing
i.e: Gary has long arms ( I swear it sounds prettier in Malay )
“Enter from the right ear and leave at the left”
Like when someone gives you advice, or teaches or warns you and you don’t listen. There’s actually a similar expression in spanish.
i.e: “I told her 1000 times but it enters from her right ear and leaves at her left”
“Shower like a cow”
Like you never shower, or at least it looks like you never do.
I.e: “Mum, I told you I showered!”
“Yeah, you showered like a cow”
– When someone uses a little water to shower or doesn’t use soap at all
i.e: “God! You smell like a garbage can! Did you shower like a cow?!”
“Like cats and dogs”
Like they don’t get along.
i.e: “Some siblings get along like cats and dogs”
Now it’s time for Wambby to learn Spanish slang!
“You’re gonna get ’em”
Demons are coming after you.
i.e. Holy Hell! Did you just punch that guy in the face! YOU’RE GONNA GET ‘EM!
Spanish slang: You’re gonna get punches in the face. People usually say it to kids when they don’t behave.
i.e: “Clean your bedroom or else you’ll get ’em”
What you call idiots who chews with they’re mouths open
i.e: Oml that guy is such a bagpipe, I can’t even.
Spanish slang: It’s like saying “that’s nuts”, like it’s very stupid or it’s not true.
i.e: Teacher, is it true that your heart stops when you sneeze?”
“That’s bagpipes, we would all be dead if that were true”
“Take the straw out of your milkshake”
Take off your clothes
i.e: Hey, let’s go to my place and take the straw out of OUR milkshake
Mexican slang: It’s like, you’re going too far, like you’re being too extra and their telling you to clam down.
i.e: “So I know english, spanish, french, italian, japaneese…”
“Hey, take your straw out of your milkshake”
“That’s in hell’s house”
Something you don’t wanna do
i.e: Lick a cactus.
THAT’S IN HELL’S HOUSE!
Spanish slang: People say it when something’s too far away.
i.e: “My best friend lives in hell’s house”
“At your job,”your name was” already”
You’re dead or fired from your job, (Usually said by really nasty old people or infants but not in between)
i.e: “Oh NO!! Billy!! AT YOUR JOB, YOUR NAME WAS ALREADY!!!”, Billy’s grant grandma yelled.
Mexican slang: When you leave a place (job, school), people who are still there, say “yeah, her name was Wambby and she worked here for 2 years”, so you name WAS.
i.e: “Yeah on fridays in school, what I do is…”
“But your name was in that school now”

I didn’t make a score count because THIS AIN’T NO COMPETITION! We just did this to have fun, entertain YOU and that’s it! I have to say the reason why I knew 2 of them was because there are expressions similar to those in Spanish as well, maybe mine were a little more complicated.
Thank you so much Wambby for being here with me on my blog, it was really fun to have you, I’m really proud of this collab! Guys! We also did a collab on her blog where we talk about Things Guys Don’t Know About Girls, it’s really funny, check it out!!!!!
