Quick question for you guys out there.

If someone tells you that you look "Shyu shyu shyu" what does this translate to? I'm not sure if I heard them right, but it was something repeatative like this. I've looked around but cannot seem to find phrase anywhere, maybe it was shya shya?

Anyone know what I'm refering to?

Konnichiwa Emoni-san!

Is it an onomatopoeic word? Someone said you? or it is a scene of Anime or Manga? Please tell me the state of affairs.

Someone said it in response to me being dressed up. Curious if it's good or bad (think it's good) but can't really ask them, or find it anywhere to look it up.

In Japan, the onomatopoeic word of whistle is "hyu- hyu-" or "few- few-". It is "ヒューヒュー" in Katakana. Of course it is a good sign.

I have entirely run out of ideas. Sorry. :p
