  • I hate Filipinos and White guys from the US but my parent is too open for me to date other peoples but I just only like Chinese and other Asians

  • I like this post quite a bit. Thanks for the laughs.

  • You speak Chinese so well. Your mom must be Chinese.

  • I don't know what are the context that you hear them. But some of them are actually friendly compliments, like " You know HK better than I do."

    • @f788a0ac5d785b5f614e3389cf2b9dc1:disqus - yeah, i don't think any of those were meant to hurt my feelings. but in this sentence there's also something very humbling or complaining about self conditions. i wonder, do you get that sort of sentence in Israel/Europe very often?


  • you forgot to ad "lar" to the ending of a lot of these.

    • @google-60b56e61d3e56f868ec0e6c9c2c53430:disqus - good point! :) ga...  could never quite figure out the context difference between la and ga.

      • sometimes it's both... ga la...

  • and another one:


    • @d9df8e51ede7c8d84dc6c9cd5f3815e1:disqus  - mhhhoooo la!

  • one more:
    let me double check for you

  • LOL. Good stuff. 

    • @cc7d023f9243a4fc5456f2e704a670a5:disqus  - ;) In that sense, HK and Taiwan aren't all that different, are they?
