You guys are hilarious. I get all sorts of stereotype comments here in SG.

1. You Filipino? Arrrr do I look like one? :o :D
2. You chinese meh?
3. Hokkien boh?
4. Better watch husband, nanti he kena curi liao.
5. Why ang moh no chinese meh?

In UK, I used to get this

1. Got this from Term 1 during my LPC from my professor - I failed your bail application written format since English isnt your first language. Hmmmm ok. I wrote my husband's how, did I fail and he passed? Errrrrrr
2. At ABN, you people should just go back to your own country and stop clogging up our university places - after his son failed to secure a place in first team Harlequin

I had a 'racist attack' this week. A bunch of guys yelling insults/expletives across the road as I queued at a traffic crossing. I've spent long enough here to know what they were saying (in Hokkien). Certainly the gaggle of locals queueing by me knew too.

I can understand basal nationalism, and I can sympathise with natives whose opportunities are impinged upon by immigrants ... but why me?

I just walked on by, feeling hated.

Explain?

I mean after all, uncles are hocking up all over the street here.

So did you have a point? As if you're a spammer you're gong to get nailed I think, and very soon.
