CANTO SLANG: EPISODE 3
So today, I thought to share with you a slang that incorporates our national pride and something that Asians eat everyday; RICE!
EAT SOFT RICE
EAT SLIPPER RICE
WTF is that?
In nicer terms, the man is “financially taken care of” or supported by the women. (For example, think Kevin Federline and Britney Spears back in the days.). Sometimes, they will use this term when the woman makes more than the man in a relationship (ie. he’s eating soft rice).
EAT SOFT RICE or EAT SLIPPER RICE ORIGINS:
Eat soft rice’s origins are a bit more unknown… something to do with taking advantage of getting free food and the likes.
Similarly, “Eat slipper rice” derives from the fact that the man doesn’t have to work so he is at home all the time; thus he has slippers on when he’s eating his rice (meal) at home.
