Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "for a long time."
Dehua: 好久
Eric: This is a compound word. The first word
Dehua: "好"

Dehua: (SLOW) 好久 (REGULAR) 好久
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "I didn’t go to shopping."
Dehua: 没血拼了
Eric: Here, we have the word
Dehua: "血拼"
Eric: which is commonly used on social media platforms. It means "going on a shopping spree". Urban Chinese love shopping. They also love to post their shopping photos on social media platforms. Listen again- "I didn’t go to shopping." is...
Dehua: (SLOW) 没血拼了 (REGULAR) 没血拼了
Eric: All together, "I haven't gone shopping for a long time."
Dehua: 好久没血拼了。 (hǎo jiǔ méi xuě pīn le。 )
