Uh.... Yeah we do.

We don't even speak the same language.

Haha, I got hungry as well, so I went out and made myself some food tongue.gif

This thread can make a great break every hour or so, but it's hard to stay off that long!

So does that mean your guess that the food looks like authentic Chinese is invalid? tongue.gif

Cantonese sounds so much better than Mandarin, in my opinion. :p

Also listen to the classical version of the Clannad OP. It's just about as emotionally moving as that one IMO.

China is such a big place that people in different provinces cook totally differently. Chinese food could mean lots of things really.

Don't see the point in prime. 90% of stuff on AmazonUK is free shipping (3-4 days) anyway.

It's not good enough until it has the cold chicken with it's head placed so it looks at you. Don't forget the vinegar drinks as well.

The cover for Tori no Uta is great too. It still gives me the ASMR chills that the original song did. :p

Do want:

Well............. I'm genetically Chinese, and I'm geologically born and brought up in china.

No wait.... HK is part of UK when I was born.... does that make me British? 

Guess I'm HK-nese biggrin.gif

Ah, that's interesting to know. Only 55 minutes into the new day and I've already learned more than all of yesterday... popcorn.gif

Except for my teacher's exciting diagram of why only half the computers turned off in his class due to a brown out...

Oi, you don't even have a turntable to play it on! If that ever becomes available at a relatively decent price, I'll purchase it.

Then if someone lets me borrow their high resolution ADC, I'll make a proper copy and share it with y'all, unlike the current version that's up.

 

Also, if they have the Key classics CD at Sakuracon, let me know. I'm not sure if Twinq said he had it or not...

Haha, I have no clue... Basically you're a Chinese person living in Hong Kong then?

And that would make sense about Britain having HK for a while... That would explain Joe's ever so slight British accent tongue.gif

I wish. I only know a few phrases, ding2! The HK Student Association club at the UW held a few Cantonese lessons.....but then midterms came around and I only got to go to half of the meetings. Having 6 tones instead of 4 like in Mandarin is pretty hard for me.

 

My grandparents are from Toisan [Taishan; not Tai Shan, panda], so their dialect is more similar to Cantonese than Putonghua. My parents can speak it, but our generation can't.....as is the way of us 'mericans; we start losing our cultural identity over a few generations. T_T

 

I prefer to listen to Cantonese-pop songs over Mandarin ones.
