Cate: Chinese Word of the Day

– Bian4 – Change, Alter, Transform

Today I’m searching for Chinese magic words. I’m not having much luck! What I mean is words like “abracadabra”, “hocus pocus”, or “presto” — sort of generic magic words. The closest I have come so far is this reference to as a translation of Abracadabra.

Even Jenny doesn’t know any. She did mention that even in Chinese you still can say 芝麻開門 – Zhi1 Ma5 Kai1 Men2 – Sesame Seed Open Door — Open Sesame, which is cute.
