Cantonese Vocabulary

I don’t think anyone on Tumblr is learning Cantonese, but I’d thought I’d just share a bunch of basic vocabulary for the heck of it :’D. Some of the transcriptions I put down aren’t official Jyutping pronunciations; I kind of adjusted it to the way I would read it as an English speaker~
