Ni Hao. Wo shi Snowbird (xue niao lol). Wo shi cong Xiang Gang ( HK) lai lu xin de.
Hi I am Snowbird. I'm traveling from Hong Kong.
Slight Difference there. :P This is in Mandarin and in case anyone can understand my translation for "Snowbird", I know it sounds a bit funny lol, think it sounds a bit corny too lol.

In Hong Kong the dialect used is Cantonese, so it would go:
Nei ho. Ngo hai Snowbird. Ngo hai yau Heung Gong (HK) lei leen doe lui hang.

Ngo=I and Ngo is a combination of the phonic sound of "N" and the word "awe". You have to say them real quick to make it sound rite. Usually I can tell whether someone is a local just by the way they say the word ngo

Cheers,
Snowbird

Hi, I'm Zags, (I'm) from Indonesia.

Indonesian: "Halo, saya Zags, (saya) dari Indonesia."

Japanese: "Konnichiwa, watashi wa Zags desu. Indonesia kara kimashita."
(... I came from Indonesia.)

As close as I can make any English sounds like Chinese. It would be 'wu see Sam yao Hal Lang lai da'
