Um sic moh bahn fat. (I'm sure my pigeon English spelling is wrong)

Any takers on a translation?


Chinese is a tonal language such that each of those words can have multiple meanings depending on the intonation. Since the intonation is not shown, there are several possibilities:

"My mother-in-law has fleas."

"The incognito mossy grape."

"Have you found iron ore?"
