Learn Foochow Case Study 1 - " me lo di " = " buy bread"

When I was about 5-6 years old, I recall one night my mum and my sister going out to some event.
And they kept saying something like "Mari me lo di" or "Mary me lo di"
I was really confused, cos it either meant "Come buy bread" or "Mary buy bread"
(Mari= "come" in Malay)
What's the big deal about buying bread?
And who is Mary?

I didn't actually work it out until many years later..
Like .. many many years later..
Like the sun rising from the east,

It dawned on me...
It was some kinda piano event called "Merry Melodies"... at least, I think it is..
True story!
That's all folks!
