Pyo or votes

Pyo or votes in English. Since the action of voting perhaps holds the idea of a little piece of paper. Well just imagine.

In Korean: 표, or 투표

It also means ticket or little stub. 

I had meant to include these in the blogs many many times. So apologies for it to be late. I have to admit sometimes I am motivated. Other times, I wonder who out there could be reading and after checking the stats, not many. While still hope to reach out to Korean or Teochew people, or even those interested in both languages. Perhaps better motivation can be mustered.

See photo grab from Hello Counselor variety show. 

It does say show us the result(result of the votes). The previous sentences were like put in your votes (your pyo).

Salt - yeam - 염

Recently I have been following KBS World Variety shows such as Human Condition and Hello Counselor.

There are many news words being discovered. I should make notes while watching instead of thinking about it later. So now here is one while watching Human Condition Chuseok Special. They needed an ingredient for their cooking project. It is the basic salt.

Salt is 염 (yeam). It is same in Teochew language. Yeam.

In korean language, yeam I guess is more informal. Since in writings or packaging, it will be: 소금 (so geum).
