The notorious MSG

Does anyone know I can speak close to perfect Cantonese?

My old job as a retail counter sales rep gave me the machine kind of "ENGLISHES"(at lease let me say it wrong here, this is my blog.) with the kind of politeness like "Thank you for calling, how may I assist you today?" and my habitual conversation ending "You have a wonderful evening."

The only thing that can help me with my Chinese/English speaking problem is conversations for CSL/ESL beginners. But I lacked the courage to intentionally speak like that, to be precise, its quite hard to speak "that fobbish" and sound acceptable for those who unfortunately live in a mostly Chinese/English speaking environment, where those who live on the street, all speak Chinese/English.

This song gave me a good laugh
