#hmongwords Challenge – Week 2 – iHEARThmong

Week 2

It’s week 2 of the #hmongwords 90 day challenge.


This week I put together words that inspire me or make me feel all warm & fuzzy inside. I thought it was interesting that when you simply switch words around the meaning changes but still remains positive.

(example: Day 5: zoo siab = happy; Day 6: siab zoo = kind).

Also, day 8’s word ‘nwj’ made me feel slightly inappropriate as a typical Asian parent usually does not show that much affection. I grew up in a household where we would hug but we never kissed on the lips (may be going a little too far).

This day and age, times are changing. I plan to hug & kiss my children every day and tell them I ‘hlub’ them. Go back to Day 4 if you want to remember what ‘hlub’ means.
