Topic: What does "mimi" mean in Chinese??
Posted: Tuesday, May 28, 2019 9:14:24 AM
Since Chinese is a tonal language, it is highly recommended to include tone marks or numbers while writing pinyin. In Simplified Chinese, the five tones for “i” are: ī/i1, í/i2, ǐ/i3, ì/i4, i/i5.
mīmi(咪咪) means tities or a cat onomatopoeia
mímí(迷迷) means seductive, lustful, or hypnotized
mīmī(眯眯) means squinted, sometimes interchangeable with 迷迷
mìmì(秘密) means a secret
mǐmǐ(靡靡) means titillating or decadent
mìmì(密密) means overcrowded or contiguous

You probably have noticed more than a half of the interpretations of mimi are derogatory. Little surprise if someone gets offended when you use mimi for tits. In fact, it is commenly considered vulgar and sexist, so never use this meaning on formal occasions.

Guo You:
The gift you have sold is Bon Voyage and Safe Travel.
Zhong Guo You (Literally meaning: A friend from China. Possibly a property name.)

I know this may sound a bit weird, but it is literally what it says. I would not be surprised if it turns out to be some dialect or jargon.

Chinese calligraphic works and plaques are usually written from right to left and the style of the characters can be unintelligible. The largest four characters mean "God rewards diligence". To the left are the date of the writing, the writer's signature and his/her seals. As a gift, it is an expression of best wishes. In this case this person thinks you are hardworking people and wishes you to be blessed and rewarded.

The language in this photo is Japanese and it says "milligrams of cadmium and lead per cubic centimete are below their respective toxicity levels".
