Recently I was emailing with a Chinese friend and had to cancel plans because I was sick. I said:



wŏ găn mào - i caught a cold


Her response:


kĕ lián de jiā huŏ, hăo hăo xiū xi bā


Luckily I had recently asked my teacher how to say something like 'oh poor baby' in Chinese as kind of a sarcastic remark and she said you could say 可怜 kĕ lián.


I'm fairly certain my friend said something nice but man that did not auto-translate well...


But loose translation is more or less: poor you, have a good rest please!
