Why did this happen in China?

Postby Cornfed » Sat Sep 13, 2014 7:26 am

I was in an auditorium in front of about five hundred Chinese students. It was interesting. Us foreigners were introduced. The crowd gave a cheer for the person introduced. Who do you think got the biggest cheer?

1. A tall, broad, skinny man in his 40s with a toothbrush mustache who had given up on looking youthful.
2. A half Filipina half English chick in her early 20s who was big boned and hot and good looking.
3. A brownskinned chick in her 30s who was an aerobics instructor, and so looked hot.
4. A flabby but muscular short white guy in his 30s who looked athletic.

We all know the answer, but I wonder why? Why was I so popular?

Maybe you looked huggable and non-threatening and Chinese chicks dig that? Or maybe they announced the nationalities of each of you and they happened to like the country you come from, thus being more enthusiastic?

No, I don't think that is it. A lot of strength in a small package doesn't seem non-threatening to most people. Quite the opposite. Also, we were from the same general area as far a Chinese are concerned, so that can't be the reason.

Well there were two men and two women. The other man was old. Maybe the fact that you were male and relatively young was the reason?

Maybe it's just CF playing the old projector of his happy memories from Asia once again. It still baffles me why he has given up any chance to live them again for real, rather than - metaphorically - watching them in a dusty attic on his toy Super 8.

There is no real future in EFL teaching. If I returned to Asia I would need a better way to earn a living.

How about doing vocational training on some sort of specialist engineering skill and then try Japan or South Korea again?

Those sauerkrauts must have gotten into your brain, mein freund. What could he possibly do in Japan or South Korea with no transferable skills (apart from language teaching, which is quite inflationed)? Oh wait, you have the solution...or not?

Exactly, he can't do anything. Without skills you can't do anything, anywhere. Period, end of story. There is no magical place on this planet where you can show up and people pay you for just being you.

My cousin even speaks fluent Japanese, is a Japanese citizen yet he can hardly do anything but teach english in Tokyo but he loves it.

That's why I suggested he gets some skills in the US, where he doesn't have to apply for a student Visa. Once he has them, maybe he'll be ready to expat again. If the solution is always to stay where they are, using their bedrooms and PCs as their only windows to the world, and complain about all the stuff they deserve and they're not getting...is that really a solution?

At least you took that leap of faith and moved abroad. Some of these people are just sitting and spitting poison in all directions. It doesn't help them.

True but I was already successful in the US, so you can't compare me to them.

There's plenty of opportunity to make a living everywhere in the first world as long as you have something to offer. Even minimal skills people still make it by, even something like data entry you should be able toake a decent living.

And don't ever mock the almighty sauerkraut. I eat 1,5 liters a week and my pooping sessions have never been better in my life.

Learn how to say "biiiii ohhhhhh break". Repeat after me, EuroBrat. "Bio break". All in together now. LOL
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.
