Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

Nanning, not Nanjing btw

I'd use this for some basic Chinese: https://www.memrise.com/course/14273...rin-chinese-1/

Keep in mind guys that OP is coming from Brazil, not an anglophone or Western European country. Brazil and China are similar in HDI scores and GDP PPP per capita. I mean that some of the developing country stuff that shocks first worlders may not be a shock to him.

Also I think LB is crazy to say there's no culture shock.

Was an undergrad student in blcu and uibe, can't say about Shenzhen. Some Chinese student graduate from English major and a year later can't speak English anymore.

Also Last time I played an mmorpg on Taiwan server, in my 500 people guilds about 5 of them could communicate in English. Things I heard a lot was no interest in learning English, no need to learn English or we learned in school but we never use it so we forget. I never lived in Taiwan so I can't judge accurately. Maybe more people speak English in Taiwan versus mainland, but I'm sure it's far from majority.

Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

Point is; English level still much higher in Taipei than it is anywhere in China. I'd also argue that playing on a Taiwan server for that game, you are playing with people spread across Taiwan, and generally the level of English outside of Taipei is quite poor. I'm sure BGP could weigh in on the English level in Kaohsiung, but I imagine it is quite poor, since it is the nitty gritty down there.

One thing about Taipei is that all the various universities are spread across quite popular areas, so the student population is pretty well distributed, and most of them speak passable - better than passable English.

Also, just disregard what I typed about Nanjing. I see that he said Nanning now.

Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

I stayed in Tainnan/Gaoxiong (f using that silly pre-pinyin Romanization-I had no idea how to say Kaohsiung) for a month. I didn't speak Chinese it and was hard to talk to anyone at all. One salesgirl at Watsons did try to tell me that biore strips were for women.

Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

My fault, typed Nanjing in that other post... didn't notice it was wrong until Boris's post.

Not using pinyin here is a huge complaint, it's beyond stupid. They adopted pinyin awhile back apparently but still aren't using it everywhere.

Anyways so far the English here has been amazing, but that might have to do with the places that I go. Went to a gaming place with a friend and everyone there had passable English, and the guy who sold us a boardgame coached us how to play the entire thing and then had a 20 minute conversation with us. Girls at the bar I go to the most speak great English. Just about everyone at the BJJ school I joined recently has great English.

All of those places are seeing lots of foreigners though so that's understandable. As far as English at places that don't have many English clients, I've noticed that most of the people can speak passable English pertaining to whatever they are doing but not much beyond that... but still it's night and day compared to mainland where you'll often get blank stares and half stifled laughter.

It annoys me in Hong Kong too. I didn't know how to pronounce Tsim Sha Tsui for the longest time. Turns out it's Jianshazui.

Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

Dont understand the avoidance of Shanghai or Beijing. Plenty of everyday Chinese in both places from very diverse backgrounds and experiencing either place will give you more insight in to "strategy" than a stint in a remote village.

Airbnb listings are about $40/day, this one $30 it gave a 25% discount for booking 7 nights.

Gramercy long term leases (6 months+) start at about $500/mo.

Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

crazy down syndrome story

First of all, a ladyboy found out about blog posts and complained a lot. It's understandable since I had posted pics etc etc. I legit feel bad, what I've done is not nice. Used amazing brazilian my charm to calm the person down and defuse the situation. All of this happened while I was on a date with a boring Swiss girl from the hostel, so it wasn't very fun for her (I was on the phone the whole time). Thanks for Jspill and BGP for helping me deal with the LB situation.

Then I decided to have 2 beers to relax after this s.hit. One thing led to another and I went out with 2 pinoys and 1 french cambodian from the hostel.

One of the pinoys was clearly gay and very friendly. He got us for free in "Royal" club, where we found 70% hot slutty girls, 15% foreigners and 15% pinoys.

I spent money for 1 more beer (140 peso if I recall) and then only drank other people's drinks LOL. I mean when they offered to me... my days stealing drinks are over.

Guess who I found, dancing at the stage (not pro dancer, just drunk and wild) ???? The girl with a great ass/motorcycle from Angeles!! She seemed happy to see me etc etc. She had some other young guys(foreigners) and girls as company. We talked and danced etc etc but I decided to hunt for more, as she probably didn't want to go home with me straight away and lose face to the friends anyway.

So I start dancing 2 chicks at the same time (they looked 15 but I don't care anyway) and they are doing really slutty ****, bending over and rubbing my dink with their butts etc etc. They go to the bathroom and I dance with other girls. The french cambodian takes home one of the new girls I start chatting with (really fast, like 30min. I was impressed. She was really hot and he had a gf. Sounded regretful the next morning but I tried to cheer him up)

So the girls who I was dancing with don't show up again. I'm kinda drunk and the gay dude is hitting on me HOW OPEN MINDED ARE YOU MANNNN (I said man I dont mind having gay friends but I'm not attracted to)

I decide to leave. On my way home, a down syndrome looking working girl says : HEY SIR MASSAGE SIR YOU WANT MASSAGE?? For who I reply (as always) You want massage ? I can give you a massage. She laughs and says SIR YOU WANT BOOM BOOM FOR FREE I DO WITH YOU. I ask 'do u have a place'? She says yes. We walk for ten ****ing minutes and stop at a bunch of trees on the streets. She says : it's here come. ON THE SIDE OF A FOOKING AVENUE, JUST BEHIND A COUPLE OF TREES!!!! But who am I to refuse, right? So I'm ready to get it on, but we hear some noise and a security guard shows up.

UGH

Now we need to find a love motel. We walk all the way back and some other hooker (very good looking, big boobs) greets the retarded girl. HELOO!!! I say hello. First whore asks me : YOU WANT HER TOO? Me : of course. They talk in tagalog and the good looking hooker comes along with us. I tell her that we're going for a love hotel. We wonder if they'd let all of us in. At this point, I'm suspecting they are both ladyboys. My radar doesn't work when I'm drunk and tired (5am at this point).

We can't find a love motel, eventually find one who has "no rooms available". They probably just didn't want 1 drunk stupid foreigners, 1 retarded hooker and another broad.

Retard girl says : HEY I HAVE A PLACE WE GO TO MY PLACE TAXI OK YOU PAY TAXI??? I say yes.

This is why I'm not scared of the situation : I left my phone and wallet at the hostel. I only have 500 peso on my pocket and I honestly don't thing anything really bad can happen to me.

So we go to the place, I think it was on Pasig or Taguig. We get there and guess what : it's kind of a slum. We go upstairs in some super crappy destroyed building. When we get inside the tiny, messy room (kitchen, laundry and floor matresses all together, there are 3 other people:

-"tita", tagalog for auntie. really fat crossdresser guy, wearing only a towel and a shower cap for cover. I'm guessing it's their mamasan so I pay some respect and act polite.
-goodlooking (but clearly) ladyboy, big boobs, sexy dress. Greets me with hello and opens legs (was sitting). There's a pussy there WTF??? My first time meeting a post-op ladyboy
-ugly naked ladyboy laying down naked behind the bedsheets

I sit with them and things get really shady. Good looking hooker leaves the place. I repeteadly say that I want her first, not the others. The retarded girl stands and watches, too shy to join. The post-op wants money so whatever I start banging the ugly LB (no kissing lmao just straight into the spitroast. thank god I had bought condoms). I also eat the post-op pussy for a while (just some licks cause I 'm not that keen on getting aids and this is risky as it can get). I stop dealing with the weirdos and go look for my initial 2 LBs. Goodlooking really left and FORREST DUMP wants to do it on the bathroom.I finish as fast as I can (I had to kiss that toothless mouth ugh).

When I come back to put my pants on and GTFO, of course the post-op methhead took my last 200 peso. Tita wants me to stay more, and who am I to pump a mamasan's pupils and leave after 10 minutes? So I accepted the offer for a massage. Tita gives me a ****ty massage with some crappy oil then starts grabbing my dicks, which did not betray me and shrinked as much as possible. I wait for 2 minutes and say bye bye. At this point, I have 50 pesos (1$) on me. I try to get Jeepneys, but everyone says that I'll need like 5 of them to get to Makati... 2 hours probably.

So I get on a cab, agree on meter +1$. We get to the hostel and I go upstairs to grab cash. I only have 1000peso (20$), so I take 5 min to find a way to change it. Ended up changing it for 950 in small bills from a very friendly hooker. She really didn't have the last 50 peso, that's why the different values. I could see the content of the wallet.

I give my cab driver 200 peso (and I'm supposed to get 20 change, since the ride was 130+50<- extra dollar).He says 230 SIR GIVE ME 230. I tell him to keep the change from 200 for waiting and gtfo. 10 seconds later, RUMPDFCRASH!

He hit a car on the first crossing, Burgos St, on the Tequileria corner (not serious accident, just gonna cost him some $$)
LMAO
felt a little bad for him but the pendejo tried to fack me over so whatever
This and some pancakes from the hostel breakfast was the perfect way to end the night.

Geez this was long
I hope that u motherfucos enjoyed
Don't regret a thing
bye

Re: Random observations and indecent chronicles through my trip around SEA

Are you ever worried you might end up in a situation where you get your organs stolen, kidnapped or otherwise harmed? Following some sketchy down syndrome potential LB you just met into a super crappy destroyed building in Pasig drunk sounds like a bit of a gamble.
