This is a request from a CantonesePod.com and ChineseBay.com visitor.
The two sentences are:

Learning Cantonese can be lots of fun and romance.
When I saw this video on Youtube, I can’t help thinking of putting it here to share with you and teach you how to propose to a girl like Jacky Cheung,
At 0:26, he said, “求求你“ means “I’m begging you.” Now you know to beg/ask/request someone to marry you in Cantonese.
At 0:29, he said, “请姑娘你听埋佢我呢句” = Please, young girl, you listen to me to finish this sentence (Please let me finish my sentence.)
Note that the subtitle in the video is Mandarin translation, not Cantonese. That’s why there’s difference.
At 0:50 “字其实只得三个” = the words are only three characters
1:00 我爱你 = I love you! Note: 妳 = 你 nei2, but it is used for female.
ngo5 hai6 ho4 gwok3 wing3. ngo5 hai6 jat1 go3 ou3 zau1 gwai2 lou2.
ngo5 = I/me; hai6 = am/is/are/to be; ho4 = river（surname here)
gwok3 = country; wing3 = glory; jat1 go3 = one (person);
ou3 zau1 = Australia;
gwai2 lou2 = a humorous way to call “foreigner(s)”, it does not really mean literately “ghost men”. Even those pretty Cantonese ladies who married “gwai2 lou2″, they say “ngo5 lou2 gung1 hai6 gwai2 lou2 我老公系鬼佬 (my husband is a (white)foreigner. ) And their husbands willingly call themselves “ngo5 hai6 gwai2 lou2 我系鬼佬”. That’s why Ho Kwo Wing called himself “gwai2 ou2″ here.
In our Cantonese dictionary, “gwai2 lou2″ is a good word while “Chinaman” is a bad word.
Yes, Kwo Wing, we all love you, (gwai2 lou2)!
