Not very humble to say that oneself is very humble :P

Yes. I think so, too !

When you spoke this sentence out of your mouth, you are not humble anymore !

I said "I am really humble" and it was marked incorrect. Very humble, really humble. In this context, same-same.

*qiānxùn

Also, Hokkien khiam-sùn

(If you’re gonna copycat me, least you could do is add the pronunciation most similar to the Vietnamese one ;) Haha)

Don't know enough Hokkien to comment so I stick to Cantonese... and just figured out how to do pinyin tone marks on this keyboard, so thanks for the correction.
