    It was a blast showing you around Huaqiangbei, Linus! Thanks for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule. Turns out my editor already has a decent editing rig, so I'll be giving this PC away to a lucky fan in an upcoming video. If you're interested in winning this PC (and some cool and rare Strange Parts swag) definitely keep an eye out for that video.

    6:59 laptop, notebook is English, what do you mean ‘Chinese’? Only after the glasses saying ‘oh, notebook’, the ‘translater’ said ’對啊‘ is Chinese.
    P.S. the Chinese word means ‘right’ or ‘that’s right’

  • Jacky 6498
    Jacky 6498 8 days ago

    Sometimes, I’m not a great fan of something trying to say something using a non first language to say that, and got that wrong...... pinyin do not sound like English, you cannot read that using english. The pronunciation of ‘Hua’ should be rounder. Qiang should not have a strong ‘g’ but not qian and it shouldn’t be xian, and bei should be pronoun as a sound with a upper to lower and up again tone...... bei3
    You said the name wrong twice... what the fuck, you didn’t say 華強北 but 挖翔杯(dig shit cup)。。。
