Depends on the pitch of the "ma"

The sentence can be use in a serious way or a sarcastic way as well...

Cris... unfortunately... your friend is correct (in a way) since he's using slang Cantonese. Which I don't recommend you learning, as it contains rude and offensive words. :wink:

I think it said "你怎麼樣?"

"How are you?" or "Are you okay?" would be it's English counterpart.

Either the person emailing you wasn't using Chinese... or he/she was using a customized Chinese set... which is not common on Chinese PC/MAC.

It happens sometimes... I don't know any ways to fix it... but I would recommend you to ask that person to send it again. :wink:

亲切 - can be translated as "cordial", "friendliness", or "warmth" I'm not good with translating things... but I think: 会记住你在我心中亲切 Is trying to say... "I will remember you're friendliness/warmness in my heart"... That's the best I can do... any objections? :?:

I'm from Hong Kong, so I speak Cantonese. If you're talking about Cantonese, yes! There are words (modern terms) that are coined by / influenced by the Japanese. For example: the word for station in Chinese (站) the Japanese writes (駅). Check wikipedia for more details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...
