A few Chinese origins of English phrases at this link:  http://www.tealeafnation.com/2013/02/the-surprising-chinese-origin-...      

The Chinese in the Gold Rush Era came from South China and probably most said  好耐冇見  as hóu noih móuh gin  in Cantonese or Toisanese (Taishanese ).   [ Same in both languages ]
