Korean Boyfriend Learns To Order Cai Png In Singapore
Cai png is a fuss-free way for anyone and everyone to get an affordable — most of the time, at least — yet satisfying meal.
While it is a popular option for locals, people from other countries seem to enjoy its simplicity as well.
A Singaporean girl’s Korean boyfriend recently learnt how to order cai png at a coffeeshop. He was thrilled, to say the least, to put his new ‘skill’ to the test.
In fact, he was so anxious to get it right that he even prepared a list of steps to follow.
The girl, TikTok user @feliciasonggg, uploaded a video documenting her boyfriend’s attempt at ordering cai png on Sunday (17 Sep).
Korean boyfriend has notebook listing steps to ordering cai png
In the video, the boyfriend was rehearsing his orders, saying “na ge cai”, which means “that vegetable” in Mandarin.
He even brought his notebook with him as the pair was walking to the coffeeshop.
The notebook had all his handwritten notes and steps that he needed to successfully place his cai png order.
On top of that, he was practising his enunciation of the orders before launching into an exited spiel in Korean.
Able to order dishes like a true blue Singaporean
Upon reaching the coffeeshop, he confessed to his partner that he was a little nervous to place his cai png order.
When it was his turn to order, he stepped up to the food display, looked at his notebook, and said with confidence, “Fan, dabao!” (“Rice, takeaway!” in Mandarin.)
“Zhe ge rou, zhe ge rou, na ge cai,” (“This meat, this meat, that vegetable,” in Mandarin) he said as he pointed to the dishes he wanted.
Topping off his order, he also requested for curry sauce to go with his cai png.
He broke out into a joyful dance when he realised that he had successfully placed his order like a true blue Singaporean.
Although he admitted that he did not really know what exactly the dishes he ordered were, he still enjoyed his meal in the end.
This is yet another Singaporean skill the boyfriend has secured under his belt.
Previously, the couple had documented the boyfriend learning how to order Kopi O in Singlish as well.
