Which is quite ironic given that Bhudda is usually depicted as a fat guy.


That's not quite correct. You are probably thinking of Budai, a Chinese monk who used to carry a cloth sack as he wandered around and is always depicted as laughing or smiling with a big fat belly.

Question already answered. It's Chinese according to the wiki link and it means Buddha.
Thank you! Is there anyone who study Chinese or knows any dialect?

For many years I too always used to think that the fat laughing guy was Buddha, it's easily done.

That's a common misconception. Mandarian, Cantonese, Wu, Hokkien and so on are their own languages rather than dialects, just as diverse as French, Spanish and Italian. They all form part of the same Chinese language family, just as French, Spanish and Italian are considered part of the Romance language family.

Although the Chinese government is keen to perpetuate the myth that Mandarin is the only chinese language and the others are nothing but dialects - this is part of the reasons for the tensions in Cantonese-speaking Hong Kong.
