Doraemon

Doraemon (ドラえもん) is a popular Japanese manga series which has become an anime series and Asian franchise. Everyone from East Asia, from old to young, should know about it.

Here is one of the episodes. I have transcribed the first half. The second half will come later.

爸爸, 真係要幫幫手呀
baa4 baa1, zan1 hai6 jiu3 bong1 bong1 sau2 aa3
Papa, I really need your help

講得啱呀, 既然係噉大家慳啲使啦
gong2 dak1 ngaam1 aa3, gei3 jin4 hai6 gam2 daai6 gaa1 haan1 di1 sai2 laa1
What you said is right. This means we need to spend less.

飲茶啦

唔該嗮
m4 goi1 saai3
Thank you

睇來我都要減少啲娛樂先得啦
tai2 lei4 ngo5 dou1 jiu3 gaam2 siu2 di1 jyu4 lok6 sin1 dak1 laa1
It seems that I need to reduce my entertainment

我都唔可以成日去髮型屋喥整頭髮啦
ngo5 dou1 m4 ho2 ji5 sing4 jat6 heoi3 faat3 jing4 uk1 dou6 zing2 tau4 faat3 laa1
I also cannot go to the salon often to do my hair

哎呀! 唔得呀! 多啦A夢
aai1 aa3! m4 dak1 aa3! do1 laa1 A mung6
Ah, can't do it. Doraemon

大雄, 有咩事呀?
daai6 hung4, jau5 me1 si6 aa3?
Nobita, what's up?

我哋出去玩吓囉
ngo5 dei6 ceot1 heoi3 waan2 haa5 lo3
Let's go to play

OK

係噉我哋玩咩好呀?
hai6 gam2 ngo5 dei6 waan2 me1 hou2 aa3?
So what do we play?

既然係為咗大雄嘅我哋一定要慳啲啦
gei3 jin4 hai6 wai6 zo2 daai6 hung4 ge3 ngo5 dei6 jat1 ding6 jiu3 haan1 di1 laa1
So, for the sake of Nobita, we have to spend less

係啦, 你哋要慳錢, 係咪想買嘢畀我呀?
hai6 laa1, nei5 dei6 jiu3 haan1 cin2, hai6 mai6 soeng2 maai5 je5 bei2 ngo5 aa3?
Yes, you need to spend less, is it because you are buying stuff for me?

係要慳筆錢出來幫你搵個補習老師呀
hai6 jiu3 haan1 bat1 cin2 ceot1 lei4 bong1 nei5 wan2 go3 bou2 zaap6 lou5 si1 aa3
It is to save some money to find a private tutor for you

冇錯呀, 你嘅零用錢都要畀少啲
mou5 co3 aa3, nei5 ge3 ling4 jung6 cin2 dou1 jiu3 bei2 siu2 di1
That's right, your pocket money also needs to be reduced

就噉決定啦
zau6 gam2 kyut3 ding6 laa1
Let's make it so

我唔要呀, 我唔要補習老師呀! 我唔要...我唔要...唔要呀
ngo5 m4 jiu3 aa3, ngo5 m4 jiu3 bou2 zaap6 lou5 si1 aa3! ngo5 m4 jiu3 ... ngo5 m4 jiu3 ... m4 jiu3 aa3
I don't want, I don't want a private tutor. I don't want ... I don't want ... don't want

但係你嘅成績真係差得好離譜喎
daan6 hai6 nei5 ge3 sing4 zik1 zan1 hai6 caa1 dak1 hou2 lei4 pou2 wo3
But your marks are really very poor

如果再唔搵個補習老師幫你呀, 你實追唔去咖
jyu4 gwo2 zoi3 m4 wan2 go3 bou2 zaap6 lou5 si1 bong1 nei5 aa3, nei5 sat6 zeoi1 m4 heoi3 gaa3
If we cannot find a private tutor for you, you cannot catch up

我應成你哋我會努力, 下個學期嘅成績一定有進步咖
ngo5 jing1 sing4 nei5 dei6 ngo5 wui5 nou5 lik6, haa6 go3 hok6 kei4 ge3 sing4 zik1 jat1 ding6 jau5 zeon3 bou6 gaa3
I promise you I will work hard, the marks for next semester must be improved

我真係唔制呀, 放咗學都仲要對住補習老師. 唔好阻住我做功課呀
ngo5 zan1 hai6 m4 zai3 aa3, fong3 zo2 hok6 dou1 zung6 jiu3 deoi3 zyu6 bou2 zaap6 lou5 si1. m4 hou2 zo2 zyu6 ngo5 zou6 gung1 fo3 aa3
I really don't want it, after school I still need to face a private tutor. Don't bother me while I do my homework

知啦! 大雄佢真係似乎肯用功讀書喎
zi1 laa1! daai6 hung4 keoi5 zan1 hai6 ci5 fu4 hang2 jung6 gung1 duk6 syu1 wo3
I know (get it)! Nobita, he really seems to be willing to put in the effort to study

過咗五分鐘平時佢已經衝咗出來啦
gwo3 zo2 ng5 fan1 zung1 ping4 si4 keoi5 ji5 ging1 cung1 zo2 ceot1 lei4 laa1
5 minutes has passed, normally he would have come out

過咗十分鐘啦, 平時佢已經離開咗張書枱搞埋嗮啲無謂嘢啦
gwo3 zo2 sap6 fan1 zung1 laa1, ping4 si4 keoi5 ji5 ging1 lei4 hoi1 zo2 zoeng1 syu1 toi2 gaau2 maai4 saai3 di1 mou4 wai6 je5 laa1
10 minutes has passed, normally he would have left the desk and would have been doing some unimportant stuff

果然係噉... 即係話想唔搵補習老師都唔得啦
gwo2 jin4 hai6 gam2 ... zik1 hai6 waa6 soeng2 m4 wan2 bou2 zaap6 lou5 si1 dou1 m4 dak1 laa1
It really turns out that way ... so we cannot but to find a private tutor

多啦A夢, 等陣呀!
do1 laa1 A mung6, dang2 zan6 aa3!
Doraemon, wait!

噉你諗住點做呀?
gam2 nei5 nam2 zyu6 dim2 zou6 aa3?
So what do you want to do?

你問我諗住點做呀, 我都唔知道呀
nei5 man6 ngo5 nam2 zyu6 dim2 zou6 aa3, ngo5 dou1 m4 zi1 dou3 aa3
You ask me what I want to do, I don't know

有啦! 呢個咁好嘅主意係我先諗倒咖咋
jau5 laa1! nei1 go3 gam3 hou2 ge3 zyu2 ji3 hai6 ngo5 sin1 nam2 dou2 gaa3 zaa3
I've got it! This great idea can only be thought of by me

乜嘢呀?
mat1 je5 aa3?
What?

就係用時光機去到三年後嘅世界, 帶讀緊中學嘅我翻來呢一度
zau6 hai6 jung6 si4 gwong1 gei1 heoi3 dou3 saam1 nin4 hau6 ge3 sai3 gaai3, daai3 duk6 gan2 zung1 hok6 ge3 ngo5 faan1 lei4 nei4 jat1 dou6
It is to use the time machine to go to the world 3 years later, bring myself who is studying in the high school back to here

我係成績差, 到咗中學, 小學嘅嘢唔多唔少都會搞得掂嘅
ngo5 hai6 sing4 zik1 caa1, dou3 zo2 zung1 hok6, siu2 hok6 ge3 je5 m4 do1 m4 siu2 dou1 wui5 gaau2 dak1 dim6 ge3
My marks are bad, when in high school, I should be able to handle the primary school stuff more-or-less

好啦, 快啲去啦
hou2 laa1, faai3 di1 heoi3 laa1
Good, let's go quickly
