This is a great post to read up about Chinese proverbs!
It has some of the most common Cantonese proverbs I’ve been hearing and also a lot which I have not come across.
Plus, it comes with this great big illustration which contains 81 proverbs in it.
Great read! 🙂

In 2014, Ah To imitated the idea and created “Great Canton and Hong Kong proverbs” illustrating 81 Cantonese proverbs to propagate the Cantonese culture and defend Cantonese.
