鬼唔知你阿媽係女人!

“鬼gwai2m4zi1nei5aa3maa1hai6neoi5jan2 has a literal meaning of “who doesn’t know your mum is a woman”. That is to say, it is crystal clear that you do not need any explanation or do not even need to mention it.

During the class you ask one of your classmates when you are going to have the exam. Your classmate replies you with a non-constructive answer: “before the summer holiday” and you really get mad with him by telling this nonsense answer. To show your discontent you say “鬼唔知你阿媽係女人!” and by saying so, you imply that you need a more specific answer.

In the audio clip, you can hear the expression two times. The first time is spoken more slowly for you to distinguish the sounds and for the second time it is spoken with normal speed and with emotion. Try and practise it with your friends!!!
