ni hao ~ hello
meo wah ~ no
ying wei ~ because
xin nian kuai le ~ happy new year
xie xie ~ thank you
woh ai ni ~ i love you

for westerners its easier to learn mandarin cos the pronunciation is easier , but if you do wanna learn cantonese i advise you to watch some HK movies cos they always have english subtitles which will help you learn quicker.

for the wise ass YojimboMifune your just taking the p**s so dont do it again
