1. flaunt: showing your confidence such as showing off
eg: The woman knows she is attractive, so she wears clothes that flaunt her sexual appeal.

2. whipped: in a relationship, when one person has the other "controlled".
这个词我最近听到好几次了。。。一定要拿出来分享下
eg: My boyfriend always carries my purse for me. I have him whipped. / Why do you let your girlfriend have your email password? She has you whipped.

3. "Putting a monkey in a business suit, does not make him a businessman. / giving a monkey a cell phone, doesn't make him a developed monkey."
meaning: Just because you "dress the part", or have cool gadgets, doesn't mean the person is a different person.

今天要说的是一些我们经常在说,而事实上是Chinglish的东西

我们经常说 Have a try. 其实是Chinglish, 同样的意思,可以说: take a chance / try it / try it out / try for youself / take a shot...

我们经常说 Happy everyday! 也是不对的,可以说 Always happy!

外国人通常是在 Chinglish land 呆太久了,所以能明白你的意思。。
但是要知道,这是不恰当的表达。
