It is Feifei – but catch your breath and have a seat. Are you ok? You look a bit of a… mess!
是的菲菲,不过你先喘口气,坐下来。你还好吧?你看上去有点……蓬头垢面啊!
Me? A mess! You would be a mess if you had been where I have been.

OK OK calm down… and what’s that smell?

Feifei, that is the last place you will find someone who is down in the dumps. It’s just a saying that describes someone who is unhappy, fed up and sometimes feels there is no hope.
