This story happened on a camping site where Pakistan and Chinese engineers were living in. Everyone went to canteen to have lunch at the midday. On my way to canteen, I came across a Pakistan engineer who headed for canteen as well.
How you been? Sir. It is lunch time, Let's jiabajiaba!
I am good. But what is meaning of 'Jiabajiaba'?
Don't you know the meaning?HOW COME? Isn't that the Urdu word for eat?
No, It's not a Urdu word.I thought 'Jiabajiaba' is a Chinese word.
HOLD ON! You know what? When I came here at the first time, Pakistan engineers and local drivers always said this word to me to imply that they wanted to eat. I thought it is a Urdu word! Actually, it's not a Chinese word,either. I think may be 'jiabajiaba' is an onomatopoeic word. When people eat, they will make noise like 'Jiabajiaba'. Wow, it is unbelivable!
No wonder that when my Chinese friends go to canteen, they always say 'jiabajiaba' to me. Now I get it, it is a fascinatiting story. Now you guys have invited a new word and it may be registerd in a dictionary in futher. Haha. anyway, let's 'Jiabajiaba' together!
