So while driving downtown tonight...
... my friend in the back seat kept saying "Gum-lahhhhh"
Me: What are you saying?
Jon: I don't know. Kev mistook me as one of his Chinese friends on MSN and typed "Gum-lahhhhh"
A.i: What's it mean?
Jon: I don't know. Kev won't tell me what it means. It's something Cantonese or Mandarin.
So we spent the rest of the drive thinking of people who spoke Chinese -- that were awake -- that we could call to tell us what it meant. Thanks for nothing Anne!
Anyone know what this means? $50 to whomever can hook us up with an answer. Any ideas? Gum-lahhhh!
Above: On a sidenote, I think my car is too low... damn curbs!

Here's the email trail on what it means...
AI: Means "do you understand?" Gumla may mean "like that."
Jon: Explain your info source........
AI: That's what Ann said. She's Chinese. Ming ming ba = do you understand? Gumla = like that.
Shaun: So that mariah Carey beat that goes "It's like that y'all ... like that y'all... like like like like like that y'all" is really " It's Gumla y'all.. gumla y'al.. gum gu gum gum gum gum gumla y'all" -- mingming ba!!
