囧囧 post

today colleague asked what does gwing means...*grins*

囧 pronounced as 'jiǒng' (jiong3) in Mandarin and 'gwing' in Cantonese.

mostly made it's appearances in chinsese bbs, forums, sms-es, and chatrooms. and is often used to describe your anger, upset-ness, disappointment, embarrassment, or failure.

the big 囗 in 囧 stands for your face,八 for your eyebrows,the small 口 stands for a open mouth. so normally you use 囧 to show your totally gobsmacked.


jasper : i ate 100 hamburgers last night!

alice : 囧

jiong3 can also be used when you're hit with troubles or setbacks.
most of us prolly have know what 'Orz' means. to those who have zero knowledge, it's used to show your surprise or shock. You've got me! or, OMG! nowadays, peeps usually do a combination of 囧 and Orz, 囧rz, representin a person on their hands and knees (jiong3 forming the face, while r and z represent arms and legs respectively) and symbolisin despair or failure.
