Winning an award & LOL equivalent in creole
Winner of a mauritian blog competition
I was awarded the EMPEROR BLOGGER AWARD organised by IslandCrisis where mauritian bloggers were required to vote for the best mauritian blogger 🙂
I wish to thank all the blogger friends for voting me 🙂
Special award to Avinash Meetoo, for “being one of the earliest Mauritian Blogger still blogging.”
For anyone interested, you may read this post where nearly 2 yrs back, some of the local bloggers met for the first official meeting…
Our topic of discussion…
So, lets start…
I have just been reading a post written by Kailash, about some people who (I quote)
Mo pas conner si sa arrive zots souvent, mais moi boucou fois kan mo coz ek certains dimounes en creole zots repone moi en francais
Its so true!
As Linzy Bacbotte rightly says in her sega “Reprend mo mari anglais”, some people “declare plis ki anglais” and this applies to french also…
Talk in creole with them, they will reply to you in french, as if they dont know creole.
“Tu sais, hier j’etais blabla bla bla bla bla”
Please note that here I am not talking about official conversations etc, but rather when you talk with somebody else about a subject which has nothing to do with work, or any official matter.
While replying to this post, I realized that we didn’t have any creole equivalent for the famous “LOL“.
So, why don’t we come with something ourselves?
I was thinking about TRR, which stands for “Touffer r rier“
Suggestions are the most welcomed!
