Ragn's translation about Chun and Calvin's conversation

Chun: This is Brunei

Calvin: BRUNEI?!!

Chun: Right...

Calvin: What beach of Brunei?

Chun: I'm so happy that the well-known beverage decided to shoot tthe commercial here at Brunei
I had told them....
Because I had recommend to them the beautiful beaches ere at Brunei
Look for yourselves, isin't the beach here are nice?

Calvin: Don't be like that, I hope that the next...(sentenced cut by Chun)

Chun: I told you, you ask him... (pointing at Calvin), isn't Brunei nice?

Calvin: Right...

Chun: Right, you see...
Right, I told you that Brunei's beaches are beautiful.
When they came here, they also felt that it's really gret...
Right, we came here to shoot for four days, right?
(waiting for Calvin's confirmation)

Calvin: Right...

Chun: Right then, I will bring them to eat some well-known food here like wild ginger rice, laksa, Hainan chicken rice...

Calvin: He really is, told you...
He really misses Brunei so much he went crazy! This is Taiwan, you're CRAZY!
This is Kenting, you my swim back to Brunei, you may keep on swimming towards Brunei!


Chun: Maybe it's the effect of last night's sleeping pills... (laughing)

Calvin: You may swim back to Brunei, just make sure you will not land in the Philippines, ok?


As you all know the country Brunei and Philippines are near thats why Calvin joked about it but in Chinese culture the way he said it is insulting to the country Philippines and Ngar who translated this told me since she is Chinese herself and she even asked
her other friends who can understand and knows their culture and they agreed that when Calvin said that he did insult the Philippines.


i love Calvin.. i just wanna know!
no need to get angry.. if you don't like it then ignore it

Huh does this deserve to have a tread? and why there are so many "Right" in that sentences.. LOL

So what if he did insult Philippines or any other country, there were even worst, will one person's comment will let you down? we are civilized people so act like one, its the best defense against weapons of insults

except when somebody insults my dick, i will go on a rampage

Are you sure he wasn't making fun of Wu Zun's motor skills? Or his sense of directions? I don't see any resemblance of an insult to the Philippines here.

Sorry if you were insulted you, though. He's a celebrity and they should really respect their fans and their culture. If I were you, just ignore him. That's what I've been doing with Rainie Yang and Ken Zhu.

haha. i don't know if this deserves a thread..:P maybe just that we can express our opinions as well.. famous people saying insulting things about other countries always get the attention of the crowd.. like even in the show of desperate housewives (i think)..where they said doctors in the phils were insulted.

i guess, its just lost in translation-or-something..it's not really an issue..

Yea, extremely agree. What he really meant was to make sure Chun didnt get lost. People misunderstood that. How sad.
