Seems like you are getting nowhere at a high rate of speed.

What a bummer. I was expecting nothing but an adrenaline charged discourse on this.

Guess the FOREIGNERs are indeed not as 'talented' at all as what have been perceived to be?

Oops, time to go throw some TRASH. Ciao.

And my middle name is Thuy. It's strange being addressed by my middle name...


Yeah, you'd be surprised (or not) at how many girls in California go by 'Thi' ;)

Guess what ?

In SG, specifically @ Joo Chiat, Geylang, Orchard Towers etc AKA RED LIGHT districts, a simple shout of "Thuy" Thi" or whatever with "Th.." will get you at least a 100 heads turning instantaneously to greet you :-)

Last I checked, this forum isn't Joo Chiat, Geyland, Orchard Towers, etc AKA RED LIGHT districts. So maybe it might be a good idea to change your attitude.

I am surprised O_O Especially if it was "Thị", that is the most common middle name ever, the middle name people put there just to identify the human as a female :P

My name is actually a whole thing "Thuy Chi". My scholarly greatgrandpa gave me it, the whole thing means "Soft branches" or "willow tree", and till this day I still couldn't write it in traditional Chinese - too many lines :oops: Guess I didn't turn out a lot like my name :lol:

@urbanjungle: Since I'm not currently on a mission to save every single lost/damaged soul, I shall not reply to any of your comments from now on.

However, just in case you are interested in getting my attention, my current volunteer work is helping patients in hospitals (which I do for the sake of doing - I don't get credits or get to put them in my resume, but it IS fun and makes me feel much better compare to talking to you). So if you are interested, please get really sick and get admitted at Gleneagles/NUH/SGH and ask for me, I'll make a special case for you even though I usually help Vietnamese folks :D

Interesting thing I came across while browsing the net: http://www.searchlores.org/realicra/bas ... pidity.htm

I know, it's also my wife's middle name. :) When I first told her lots of 'viet kieu' there used it, she had pretty much the same reaction. Of course, it was nothing compared to when I told her how the average american pronounced her last name - Nguyen. (New-geee-en is most common)

Ehe at least her last name is quite common. People from other countries are often lost trying to pronounce my surname :D

Oh PUR-LEEEESE, the world can certainly do less with one FAKE aka pseudo FTrash.

Volunteering at a hospital ? Really ? Or like the thousands of LEECHES of your type entering OUR tiny island everyday, you are just as desperate in landing yourself with a senile old LOCAL man so you can wipe his CPF savings clean faster than he can say "Thu" Thy" or whatever ? Did I hit the nail on the head ? :-))

Well Mr. / Ms. Jungle (or can I call you Urban?), I think your posts say a lot more about you than they do about us 'FTrash', 'leeches', or whatever other charming terminology you might care to use. I'm sure you'd like us all to leave 'your' tiny island (I thought it was my home as well, but there you go...), but all I'd say in response to that is: be careful what you wish for.

I do hope you have a pleasant evening trolling the expat forums.
