exactly, in any kind of verbal encounter 90% of all Taiwanese are nice, friendly, helpful.... but it makes me feel uncomfortable, because they make me feel like I am someone I am not.
I live here for a big part of my adult life, have been around in the cities in the streets, lots of jobs, lots of friends lots of contacts, lots of everything. I know your TV series, I know your music, I do speak Chinese and if I don't understand it is my problem not yours, no you do not have to be afraid, no you do not have to giggle when the door is closing behind me, no you do not have to ask "Ni huei jiang guo yu maaaa?" with a smile for special occasions, no you do not have to yell haallooow in my neck and laugh, no your voice doesn't have to be trembling when I stand in front of you. Hell even guys are giggling. The air changes the moment I come into the room...in a very Chinese way.
I do not think CG Rider will have this treatment in Germany. "Being a foreigner" means something completely different there. I do not answer to Sat TV post because I find him insulting and vulgar. If CG Rider or others want to engage in a Taiwan-Germany discussion we can start a new thread, maybe somewhere else.
again spot on! I can try to yell "Ni Haoo" to Asian looking folks the next time in Europe, I bet they think I am 智障 zhi4 zhang4.
