Not being racist to anyone here. but here are my lists of things I hate and love most about being an Asian.
1. Cutting in line
Needless to say, all time things that we do which I hate most, we are such an "impatient" race that we do not tolerate any kind of wait, AT ALL. You'll be assured to get shoved in when queuing for food, elevators, parking lots!, buses, anywhere.
Seriously, what is wrong with my face? or my leg? or whatever it is? Why the hell do we Asian like to stare at other people like there's no tomorrow? People staaaaring at you.. like you have breasts growing out of your nostrils. *sigh*. And it is NOT a friendly or admiring stare, it is more like a deadly stare, can be classified into two classes:
(i). Complete scan
Essential ingredient includes scanning you from head to toe, and back to toe to approximately breast-length. Usually avoid any form of eye contact with the victim, and especially happens when you walked past women and aunties. Occasionally, you get this kind of stare from teenager as well. WTF!
According to the dictionary, this means " to cast a sidelong glance" which is just exactly how this action is performed. Require no further explanation.
3. Groceries bag fascination
We tend to grab as many "free" bags as possible eventhough we're only buying 2 lemons.
4. OpaaaaaaaaH and acting cute
"Opaaaa-aaaah" (pronounced: Or- pa: with a prolong aaaaaarrr in the most annoying tone). One of the reason why I resented watching Korean movies. Enough with it already, opaaaaahhh. Since when did those Korean sappy dramas start taking over the rest of our other Asian race that we feel the necessity to address yr bf Opaaah.
And what makes Asian girls think that acting cute actually equals cute? OK, acting cute to a certain extent, is acceptable. But not when your voice tone suddenly get an extreme makeover when you are around Opaaah-able guys. And then you start the conversation with such unnatural cute-sy voice. Makes me sick. Examples, twenty somethings women giggling when you ask for money over the groceries counters, pouting lips when their credit cards did not get through (duh!!!), non-stop fake hitting the boyfriend when giggling, making crying gesture with hands, trying to say "thank you" in the cutest way she thinks possible, NOT CUTE. Enough said
5. Branded Stuff
- related to no. 6 (see below)
6. Rich Husbands/ Boyfriends (Tai-Tais)
Asian girls, in my opinion, more than any others, is known for making a lot of investments. In branded stuff, that is. Lots of people tell me that you need to look glam and expensive so that you can approach the right mix. WTF is the right mix? You see, I doubt this applies to the entire population, but mostly, mind you, aspires to become The Rich Tai-Tais who lunches in style. Hence, the investment to meet the right prospective husbands. Men equals financial plan. I wonder... few decades after the revolution, does this theory still applies? Apparently, it still does.
7. Studying Overseas
Studying overseas is like a trend, which I think is really stupid. There's a common misconception that an overseas graduates are guaranteed big money. I think it is so over-rated. Seriously, local graduates could also get good jobs with great pay. I can easily point out overseas graduates who couldn't even speak proper English..not to mention the "actual" knowledge they gain in subjects taught in foreign language. so what's the big deal with it?
Stuff I love being Asian:
1. Instant Noodles
You know you are Asian when you see instant noodles in your kitchen shelf. I love any brand of instant noodles, and I mean ANY. Thai, Indo, Chinese, Malay, Japanese, Koreans, everything! Don't you?
Added: OMG!! Just found out that there is such thing called World Instant Noodles Association (WINA) . LOL!! Instant noodles ROCKS!!
2. Fountain of youth
We Asians, always somehow look at least 5 years younger than our age (and act 10 years younger too sometimes, lol). Once an Ang-moh came to me and say he's gonna marry an Asian chick just because she'll look like 40 by the time she's 60... WTF?
My favourite expression!! Aiya! - when I'm upset, Aiya! - when I'm excited, Aiya! - when I'm surprised. Aiya! - when I'm about to nag. If only the whole world embraces Aiya! then we won't have too much vocabulary to learn when studying new languages, how effective!
4. No shoes inside the house please
Absolutely my favourite things to love being a pure Asian. In fact, rule no.1 if I had an Ang-moh boyfriend, you MUST take off your shoes when you enter my house, or, we're through (as if)
5. Clothes line
Only Asians know how to maximise the use of clothes line. We don't need you, dryer. All we need is a string and a bit of sunshine :)
6. Dishwasher = dishrack
When I first came to Australia, I have never even seen this thing, really. And I'm still using it as a dishrack, nowadays. I guess it's just in the blood.
7. "Don't waste" syndrome
"Don't overeat". Chop my head off if you heard this word coming out from any Asian parents. In fact, if you google "Asian parenting" you'll find more interesting unpopular stuffs about well, how Asian raise their kids. But I particularly love this one. When I became a mum one day, I too, will not let my kids waste a single piece of carrot nor shallot on their late before they leave the dining table.
8. Fried rice, Spring rolls, San Choy Bow
This one is a practical joke. When you see an average Aussie walks into a Chinese restaurant, you can expect them to order one of the above or all the above. Asians, particularly Chinese, NEVER order fried rice in the restaurant. Never. That includes me. Why? Because we order based on the value of the food, NOT the price, NOT the quantity.. which is why we're a bunch of smartasses and really hard to do business with.
9. Cute Stuffs
We Asians have somehow develop a deep attraction (fetish?) to cute stuff, and we really can't get enough of them. More Kawaii stuff, pleeeease *nyan nyan pose*
10. Asian Pose
I'm not too sure if I like or dislike this......

The iconic King of Pop has left us for good. Like the rest of the world, I was shocked beyond words.. The last time I felt such grief and loss was the death of Princess Diana..and we're so not ready for this.. he is just not any celebrity, he is not just a pop star, he is "a" Michael Jackson.
May your soul rest in peace.
Your life is a celebration to the world
We loved you and always will

"Money cant buy you happiness" - Anonymous
Whoever originates that quotation, i hate you. If you're not happy enough being rich, then so be it. Don't intoxicate the whole world with your nonsense, bastard.
I wanna be a RICH BITCH in the next 10 years!!
When I was a teenager, my dad once said, "Money is not everything in this world. Money can't buy you happiness" --> see? Even he quoted this anonymous bastard and was somehow to misled into believing that Money is not that important.
Note that all the Money in my blog comes with a capital M, why? because it deserves a capital. And a capital punishment for those who underestimate its power, like I once did *pinching myself hard*
Well, not anymore. Let me alter it to suit my point. Just like how all credit cards comes with terms & conditions in fine prints:
Money can't buy you happiness*
* Terms & Conditions:
1. If you are unhappy in the first place
Money can't buy you happiness - Sure as hell it doesnt. But, does being poor makes you less miserable? If you're not happy, don't blame it on having $$, thats because you have problems. Got it? and having Money surely helps you to solve some of the problem (see clause 3)
2. If you don't spend it
7pm - Wake up worrying about being late for the damn meeting with the most irritating people. Followed by spilling coffee on the report which is due in like, er.. 2 minutes.
1pm - Shit! Have to skip lunch because of a client dropping over from another planet.
6pm -Happy & contented. Finally being released from the 9to5 jail , straight into the rush and traffic jam. Passing by retail stores, spotted some gorgeous bags and shoes with beautiful price tag, getting heartpain and proceed to deep sighing.
8pm - Meeting up with friends, bitching and complaining about life and sharing tips on how to survive.
10pm - Going to bed worrying about the unpaid credit card debts, medical bills and mortgage. Another sleeples nights.
You suddenly won a 100 million lottery jackpot and your whole life changed. You now wake up in a Hilton room in a different part of the world everyday, breakfast in bed, followed by a daily dose of Dior, Prada, LV and Gucci every morning *swoon* Chauffered in limos everywhere you go *swoon again*, lunching with whoever you feel like in midday, in the most exotic locations , and private jetting to enjoy romantic dining for dinner, complete with fireworks. and so on..
or in case u dont like it my style, this: waking up and go fishing whole day long with your mates, or in my bf case, playing video games whole day (and watching porn in between, i strongly suspect, duh) without worrying about me freaking out.
Needless to say, i choose the latter.
I wanna swim and dive into Money like Uncle Scrooge.
3. If you don't spend it, wisely
Paiseh, the second terms was a bit extreme. so i alter it again. This is a true story. When my grandma was admitted to the hospital not long ago, she made me realize something tragic about life. Medical fees is excessive, whichever part of the world you're in.
Being sick with life-threatening conditions, whoever, i presume, would want the best and ONLY THE BEST for their love ones,best treatment from best medical team in the best hospital. who wouldnt want that? unfortunately, this practice only applies to the privileged few in the society, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Voldermort. Lame joke, ok, they-who-must-be-prioritize, THE RICH. How does that makes you feel?
Shitty.. I felt completely helpless. I want to give my very best, but unfortunately, I realize my very best is limited to the size of my pocket. I am lucky that my dad is footing the bills. But it made me realize something. Consider it is just me alone.. what is going to happen? I remember feeling very lonely, I felt sad, dissapointed and angry at myself and repeatingly asking myself "Is this the best you can do for someone you love? If it is, then it is not good enough". Just because my pocket limit is not a size of THE RICH's, someone I love have to suffer and settle to second-best or third-best treatment? You are talking about life threatening conditions..
Sad but true, had we not have any savings and spend wisely...
Well, here's some more myth busters:
1. Myth: "I'd rather be poor financially, yet have a rich loving family life. You see the rich old ah-pek, rich also no use, so lonely, no wife no kids. Will die until no one know (hokkien: si kau bo lang cai)"
Common myth, I grow up with this statement. I hear it EVERYWHERE. Some rich people really kena curse so badly..
I say: Siau ah! Which old ah-pek dies alone? When you are rich, all your relatives will suddenly be drawn to you like magnet. Not only do they become really nice to you, they will even do charity for you by helping you out in every occasion, without you even asking. Not only that, young sexy women will also made themselves available to you.. which mean you will not "die until no one knows". Agree?
2. Myth: Rich people are selfish and evil or, on the street version :" All this rich people, already rich, still so greedy, steal the business from poor people like us, no shame!"
aiyaa.. i also heard this a million times before.
I say: OMG. Get Real! How do you "steal business" from the poor people? The market is there, the opportunity is just right in front of your eyes, if it's you, will you let it pass you by just like that? and "let" other people grab it? If you're not good enough, find other means, don't blame other people. Puh-leez...
Some people even go to the extent of bitching about so and so's daughter. "Her daughter ah.. now become so rich. She got poor family, lucky she know how to dig the lecherous rich ah-pek". I say, waah lau.. are you not happy that other people's are having a better life now? If you are girl- young, rich and hot, gossip will follow you. Why can't people give blessings instead of curse... pisses me off!
Of course, I, too do not like gold-digger,although I believe that you'll have a happier life if you happen to have a rich husband than suffer with a penniless one. Question, how do you define this word gold-digger? I've got a friend who found someone who truly loves her and HAPPENED to be rich. Surely she can't be classified as one?
I also do not like rich spoiled brat who aspires to live off their rich parents'/ bf /husbands' saving, but like it or not, I have to admit, Money with a capital M definitely give you a better life, it won't buy a soul, but it is one of the most important recipe for a happy life. Money - the root of all evil. I say, pah! If I have more money now, I'd certainly be a lot more happier in this material world. If you don't agree, then fuck off.
I can go on forever..
