At Least He Understood Me

My Mandarin still hasn't improved much since I first arrived here in Skudai two and a half years ago. I blame myself for not trying to speak the language at all and instead opting for the easier route by telling everyone that I'm English-educated and Mandarin is as foreign to me as Greek.

Now, even my most 'Chinese' of Chinese-educated friends speak to me in English. Bah. The only time I do speak Mandarin is when I'm ordering food and god knows that isn't enough to even improve my pronunciations:


Someone speak to me in Mandarin!!
