      the worthless word for the day is: cheongsam

      [fr. Ch. chèuhng-sāam, literally, long gown] /CHON sam/
      a long dress of southern Chinese origin with a slit skirt
      and a stand-up collar (so that's what that's called)

      "A bubbly young Asian lady in a turquoise cheongsam
      handed him a laminated menu of services."
      - Thomas Pynchon, Inherent Vice (2012)
