GPP Street Team Crusade #7 - Say what?

A few more words...

Tomato -for some reason we pronounce it "Tomahto" however the pronunciation of potato is the same.
We say garbage bin - you say trash can
We say caravan park - you say trailer park
We say shopping centre - you say Mall (although "Mall" is now widely used)
We say biscuits - you say cookies

When in Australia don't say that you are wearing a "fanny" pack.... fanny means the reverse down here!

I thought everybody said "mall"?...everyone I know in the U.S. does...maybe it's an Aussie thing? LOL! Your doggies are adorable by the way!

It's so much fun to read these Aussie words/phrases. Thanks for sharing them!
