  3. How do we say "Have a good day darling"?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There is no manipuri sentence so nuance or exactly similar to "have a good day" but it can translated as " Afaba/Yaifaraba Numit ama oiyu". Hence, people usually wish " Have an awesome/good/fabulous day, Nungshiba ". Nungshiba/Nungshithoiba meaning Darling. Hence, putting them together, it will be like " YAIFARABA NUMIT AMA OIBIYU, NUNGSHIBA"

    Replies
    1. "Nungairebro" means "Are you happy?" basically asking "How are you?". It is an informal use for "What up? " :)
