Congratz #2, Adrie!

Adrie, you have conceptually solved mini mystery #1. Congratulations! Although I must correct you. My version is "Chi"+"Hua"+"Hua" where "Hua" stands for FLOWER. Please check it with "Green Book". Here are excerpts from it: "3.4.20 Flower replacement ("Bu Hua") When you pick a Flower Tile, you may expose it, declaring "flower" ("hua") and take a replacement tile from the back end of the wall, until there are no more Flower tiles in your hand." "3.6.1 Regulations governing verbal calls during the game During the progress of game, the player must verbalize all claims for discards, to make a chow, pung, or kong, and when picking a flower or declaring mahjong. ... When taking a Flower replacement (Bu Hua), the player must say "Hua". He should not call out the names of the tiles when discarding, and is forbidden to discuss, gossip or communicate in his native language or other foreign language."
