When a Westerner compliments my Chinese ...

... this is sometimes what I think:


  1. yup, that would be me complimenting your writing skills. Excellent job Greg, keep up the good work *****

  2. Haha, thanks! Similarly, let me know if I can give you advice on being a mum :-)

  3. Shhhh! Don't put ideas like that in people's heads! They'll start questioning my claimed language skills! Even more than they already do!

  4. Don't worry Steven. As long as you have good excuses, you can hold onto the illusion even longer! Things like ...
    - No I didn't understand. But oh that person has a very unusual accent. Even Chinese people struggle to understand those who come from XYZ.
    - Chinese writing in menus is very ideomatic - so it's impossible for non-native people to read a menu.

  5. haha...very these comics..
