I believe it's important to keep our ethnic culture, but we should also fit into the society we live in...

Therefore, chinese overseas must speak their language :)
being in a different country is no excuse to not know your own language

I am part Chinese, as my grandmother was born in Guangdong to pure Chinese parents and migrated to Taiwan. She is still alive, but now so far away - so I regret not tapping her brain enough for lingual and cultural wisdom. However, ever since I was a child and even up to this day I have attempted to learn more about the Chinese culture.

The other (and major) part of me is Filipino, and it now pains me to hear of the strife between China and the Philippines - especially now that I am abroad in NZ. I have adopted the stance that China is sovereign in the matter of the islands' possession rights (for reasons of precedence, ability to sustain maintenance, etc.), but naturally I still feel torn between two loyalties. I feel that for a person of mixed heritage, these are difficult times.

I can only pray that I will not meet any more hostility due to my heritage than I have already met.

I'm a full chinese but because I've lived in South Africa all my life, I can't read or write the language at all. I'm like most of the other abroad ones-being able to speak and understand, but not much else. Over hear I only get to hear about the bad side of China on the news and it looks to me that the western culture is more attractive than the lifestyle in China. But I'm not really judgemental on the subject as I've only been to China a few times to visit my relatives and not seeing anything much.

Forcing respect is something I have little respect for.

Gosh I know right? It's so frustrating sometimes!

I don't really understand it. I mean, are we really just suppose to bite our tongues even if we are not at fault?

Now China can not explore their culture to the world and Chinese Traditional culture are losing in the Chine, so the oversea Chinese lose their bolster pride.

Spring forum cleaning! Since it's a new month I'm closing all the old threads in room for the new ones. We close old threads from 6 months past with no activity. Please recreate if you wish to do so!
