"Wow, 凹凸, such characters, if I saw them alone, I would not think that they're characters, they look just like pieces of jigsaw puzzles"

"This pretty much looks like a list of all the characters I consistently get wrong so well done.   I wrote a blog post a while back that included the 5th set that might help a tiny bit. A Mnemonic for tones of buy and sell in Chinese"

Stuffedtuna commented on Brandon's blog post How to be a happy nut - pistachio
"Pistachio's name in my country is somehow the same, as it can be literally translated as "nut-smile". Maybe because of the feature of the nut, it's like a mouth smiling. But we do not have such a cute description, what a pity ^_^"
