na me dis?

na me dis = this is me; here i am; i am present.

one of my favorite expressions in pidgin english. the lingua franca of the northwest and southwest provinces in cameroon. na me dis speaks volumes... about identity, cross-culture, self-knowledge, confidence and presence. all major themes in this blog o!

...btw, that "o" is added to the end of many expressions in pidgin for emphasis or enthusiasm.
