Words look like Englsih

PK, meaning rivalry or fighting each other, what is the origin in English if it is English at all?
AA, meaning go Dutch or separate bills, what do the two As mean? How do you spell them?

It is the meaning in Chinese, and that is why I asked the same question

People in their daily life say to each other "let's AA", meaning they will have their bills separated, so I want to know what AA stands for if it is English, but I believe it is not a word of English at all.

Like Da Call, I am still clueless about its meaning.

OK, let me explain it.
Da Call means cheer for the players in sports games or other games, first used in Hong Kong in Cantonese. Call also means shouting or cheering.
Then some people begain to toy with the word CALL, because it can also mean phone call, so you may hear some youngsters say "I will make a phone call to him ", which means " I will be his fan and give my support to him."
