as triggered is all, even your reply seems defensive I still hope u the best and hope you get all the attention you seek. Cheers! Attention? You are thinking too much. You are trying to get my attention here you know?! Flamingo tropical hawaiian shirt just skip my comment if it doesn’t sound right to you. But again I just stated my opinion just like every other person did. im the same I’m Hawaiianized- Asian. I never went to a Chinese school and my parents never taught me how to speak or write. I just learned by listening to them. But ever since I moved out of the house and rarely talk to them I forgotten most of my Chinese and only remember the basics.
I can understand what they saying but I can’t speak it well anymore I can’t read it either. When I was younger I knew a little of Teochew, when I went college I took a few classes of Mandarin, I can’t remember them now. I made the mistake in a Chinese restaurant by saying thank you in Mandarin, next thing I know the waitress is talking to me. When she finally slowed down I was able to explain I only knew five words. Not just ABC have this struggle. Most Chinese descendants born in Singapore can speak mandarin but they can barely read or write Chinese. Almosy everything in Singapore is written in English. My ex girlfriend is a Chinese Malaysian and she send me messages written in Chinese. I told her I can’t read Chinese as good as her.
