Don't be a Small Breath Ghost 小氣鬼

The Chinese language is truly a very pictorial language.

The word of the day for me is 小氣, siu2hei3 in Cantonese and xiao3qi4 in Mandarin.

Literally 小 means small and 氣 means gas, air, breath or anger. And 小氣 means narrow-minded.'s just someone being very 小氣 today which was so frustrating. 

It makes me wonder why people do not look at the bigger picture but fret over the smallest of things.
