What in the World is Chicken Salt?

Traveling with a large group of Aussies made me learn a lot of Aussie words and phrases. By the end of my nine days in Egypt with them I was speaking with a bit of an Australian accent. I’m still able to distinguish between an Eastern Australian accent and a western one. Additionally, I learned how to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit fairly quickly. Here’s what I learned:

Pram=Stroller
Uni=University
Holiday=Vacation
Vom=Vomit
Jumper=Jacket
Sunnies=Sunglasses
Bathers=Bathing
Singlet=Tank top
Thongs=Flip flops
G=Thong underwear
# sleeps (ex 2 sleeps)=# nights (ex 2 nights)
What’s the haps?=What’s up?
Lolli=Candy
Mate=Friend
Mozzie=Mosquito
Rubbish=Garbage
Dodgy=Shady
Hot chips=French fries
Crisps=Chips
Arvo=Afternoon
Evo=Evening
Advert=Ad
Wanker=Stupid guy who is full of himself
Flat=Apartment
Netball=Similar to basketball
Chicken Salt=Salt with chicken extract along with other spices. They put it on French fries, chicken, veggies, etc.
Panadol=Like our Advil

There were more, but I can’t remember them all.
