Phone Number

I always insist speaking to Olivia in Cantonese, even if she speaks English to me.  Olivia is not feeling well today.  I told her that she wouldn't be going to school tomorrow.  She's disappointed, but still agreed to stay with grandma. 

Olivia:  Ok, but will you call the school to tell them that I'm not going there?

Me:  我會. (I will)

Olivia:  Do you have their phone number?

Me:  有。(Yes)

Olivia:  What is it?

Me:  九零五 二零一 八四六一。(905- 201 8461)

Olivia: You have to tell me in English, because 中文我淨係識: 一,二,三,四,五,六,七,八,九,十,十一,十二,十三,十四,十五,十六,十七, 嗰D㗎咋。because in Chinese I only know: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17, those words)

Me:  妹妹,都係嗰啲數目字嚟㗎咋。(Livie, they are the same numbers)

Olivia:  They are?
