897. Curaçao Got Back

“Tuuuuuur esei ta dibo?!” = Is aaaaall that yours?!

“No saka mi pòrtret!” = Don’t take my picture!

“Asina chinès a muri” = That’s how a Chinese man died

“Hesusei, no ta bista!” = Jesus hey, that’s no sight (for sore eyes)!

The biggest insult you could give a girl growing up in Curaçao: “è è bo atrás (depende unda bo ta: s-nk-) ta plat!!!” (“è è you have a flat behind!”). And inevitably, when it’s no longer… “o yiu, ba boná!” (dayum, you’re well-endowed!)

And who can forget The Yellow Claw’s Krokobil (Croco-butt) filmed in Curaçao? (I swear it’s something in the water!)
