When you refuse to eat food because you're full, your grandma gets offended and says: "I feel like I don't know you anymore'


(this really happened to me :D )

This made me laugh the most. My girlfriend's younger brother, keeps making an annoying habit of pointing this out. Now I feel like a real foreigner when I say this, and try to correct myself. :eek: :D

And the moving out thing; other nationalities seem to think it's commendable and that we are good family people. If only they understood mortgage prices in London :eek: :D


Nice one :thumbsup:

I know that we (In case that you don't know: I'm a Chinese Hongkonger) were neighbours about 1000 years ago, but how come we are still so... similar in some ways?! :tongue:

And I love (Germanised) kebab! :drool:
