Really? Well make it 7 in the region. 4 years in Beijing and 3 in Taiwan. 2 pregnancies......Iknow something about walking around with a bump and people yelling and pointing at me - Da Dou zi - fat stomach.
Divea, something tells me that you didn't cope as well as you boldly state. The kind of comments that you are making here seem to come from someone that actually had a bloody tough time of it. So why do you try to put others down when they talk about their similar (but not equal, as has been pointed out here) experiences ? A delayed coping mechanism, perhaps.
Regarding your earlier comment, I doubt that Sandman would want to join in your attack on the OP; he's got a little mixed one of his own and will know exactly what the OP means. I am surprised that he hasn't come in for a witty comment though.
Pg Daddy it was hard, who said it was easy?? I was in the mainland, with no language skills 10 years ago....but I picked up th language in 3 months, enough for me to go around and aan and was never rude to people asking stupid questions. Which includes white males, adult white males asking things like 'do your parents own elephants back home'.
There are a zillion reasons to be pissed off and call people unicell organisms, but to laugh it off you would want to be happy. Oh and Sandy? He has a mixed kid whom he refers to half breed openly....he's not gettong pissed about something like THAT and he has no time to focus on quips IRL.
