    "Chin-chin" is an italian toast, (actually Cin-Cin) which I believe means the equivalent of "to your health".

    From the Urban dictionary

    ChinChin

    Used as a salutation or toast; used most commonly among Italians/Libyans

    synonym: cheers
    Diya raised his glass for a toast then as the table fell silent he eloquently said "Chinchin", with many smiles and a few tears as a result.
