What is that smell / odor in English???


First of all, long time no see (Yes, it is proper English)! Sorry for not sharing some GOOD and INTERESTING English 'stuff' with all my dear dear students and friends for a long while as I've been really tied up with my soy sauce and fuyu (fermented bean curd) business. Anyway, my student asked me this last week...


We call this unpleasant smell as MUSTY usually. February to April in Hong Kong, not my favorite because of the dampness! Oh, and my students told me that they had no idea that they could actually write that word with a Chinese character!
