speak chinese like a native

吹瓶 chui1ping2 (v. drink from the bottle)

Posted by bodawei December 19, 2010 in the Group General Discussion .

Heard this one 吹瓶 chuīpíng (v. drink from the bottle) last night.  No, we weren't drinking from the bottle, and I'm not suggesting that any ChinesePod poddies would do such a thing.  But it may come in handy, at least when being instructed (as we were last night) to 别吹瓶! 

I love the colourful use of 吹瓶 chuī (v. blow, puff) in this context - like sucking on a bottle, and puffing on a ciggie (at the same time) create a similar linguistic response.
