"dui shen"

it hit me one day that everyone should be learning a revamped pronunciation of "tuition", especially the aunties paying for it.

singlish pronunciation: tiew shien
revamped pronunciation: dui2 shen4

here's why:
if you spend a lot of $$ on tuition for your kid and he doesn't do well, you feel damn dui2 (hokkien term) and when that happens, you get freaking stressed and that in turn affects your shen4 (kidney).

there you go.
everyone, repeat after me- dui2 shen4!
