just caught the show. As a teen, my hokkien was of a pretty lousy standard. But this show brought back memories of the hokkien dialect. It was a great show and the songs and lyrics in hokkein struck a chord in me. I think you need to know hokkien to really appreciate the show. ok- the laser thing was pretty over the top and awful but other than that - I had a blast.
