Need help with a phrase.

Postby Cubethulhu » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:23 am UTC

My Vietnamese friend keeps calling me White Devil. I can't tell if he's doing it jokingly or not. I was wondering if someone could tell me what White Devil is in Vietnamese? Also could anyone show me who to write it in Chu Nom or whatever would be the most appropriate? I really want to get him one day by stenciling that on my arm or something.

I'm afraid I can't help you with that. A recommendation, though: Change thread title to something like "Need help with a phrase. (tiếng Việt)"; you may have better luck attracting people who know the language, then.

EDIT: I looked it up on Wikipedia. Apparently it's some ancient Babylonian unit for angles :/
