Discussions on the Cantonese language.
what is bak gwa? i think its the same pronounciaiotion in mandarin as well
If "baat-gwa", it means "nosey"
If it's bak wa "white language" I believe it refers to Cantonese and is a Cantonese expression.

bak gwa...i guess there is another conotation in cantonese. it is some kind of chinese fortune telling with eight directions, or relating to i-ching.
Baa Kwa means "eight trigrams" trigrams are commonly used in taoism, for fortune telling and .... on south korean flag. Usually a bak kwa is used hung on a wall in front of a windows or door, there is a mirror in the middle with eight trigams around. Baa Kwa=八卦
Hehehe, so much for posting without tones or context ...
