Item consists of a sound recording in the Enping dialect of the phrase "Have you eaten yet?" This is a common Chinese greeting. Asking if someone has eaten yet is a way to express care. This audio clip was part of Burnaby Village Museum's "Across the Pacific" exhibit and was accessible to visitors along with seven other language dialects with an exhibit panel that included a map of southern China and Guangdong Province. Viewers were asked to listen to the same phrase pronounced by speakers from different regions in southern China. English text on exhibit panel reads "Mandarin a northern variety of Chinese, was adopted as China's official language after the Chinese Revolution of 1911. Aside from Mandarin, there are many other regional varities of spoken Chinese. Early Chinese migrants spoke in a variety of regional Cantonese dialects such as Taishanese. Some also spoke standard Cantonese commonly used in Guangzhou and Hong Kong."

Object History
Publication "Commodities Catalogue", was part of a scrapbook created by Cecil Chue Kan Lee documenting the time he was employed as a Prodcue Buyer for Kelly Douglas and Company Limited and Western Commodities Limited in the 1970s and early 1980s. As a produce buyer for Kelly Douglas, Cecil Lee worked closely with local farmers along Marine Drive and in the Fraser Valley. The Burnaby company was one of the largest food distributors in Canada. In the mid-1970s, Lee was asked to oversee the import of Chinese mandarin oranges into Canada. Until that time, mandarin oranges had come from Japan and were sold in the winter, especially at Christmas. When the Japanese market could no longer keep up with demand, Kelly Douglas looked to China. The company relied on Lee’s cultural knowledge to build this very profitable part of their business.
