    A lot of those are Cantonese, Taiwanese and/or Huaqiao, not necessarily universally Chinese, let alone “Chinese” (mainland) Chinese.

  • 6 cj // Mar 16, 2008 at 8:18 am

    My stepmother from Taiwan will ask after cooking a meal, ” this not good huh? or ” I did’nt make this right”, I did’nt know I was suppose to praise her cooking when she asked these things.
    I’m 3rd generation Chinese so I think I’ve offended her unintentionally. Someone help me.

  • 7 Justin // Mar 16, 2008 at 12:29 pm

    Asians tend to be hard on themselves when it comes to cooking so I always try my best to compliment the cooking because I know it took them a lot of time and effort to make us happy with good food.

  • 8 Jorge // Mar 17, 2008 at 5:38 am

    When is someone going to make a blog called “Stuff Ninjas Like”?

  • 9 AC // Mar 26, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Hey CJ,

    Your stepmother probably was seeking compliments or reassuring. A lot of Asians aren’t comfortable with offering themselves up for praise or reassurance (e.g. you will never ever hear a traditional Asian declaration “BOO YEAH! Who’s the king??” type behaviour), they often fish for it as a result of insecurity or the appearance of humility. It’s that classic line, “Do I look fat in this?” but with the Asian twist (in that it’s used for everything where they want reassurance or compliments).

    On the other hand, maybe your stepmother was trying to please you, but your lack of reaction may have given her the idea that you’re ungrateful for her efforts (I think a lot of Asian parents have guilt-tripped many a child with the, “You know how hard I work to keep you in school and piano, so don’t waste my money”).

    If you want to bolster her confidence or make up for not praising her the first time, the best chance is to praise her cooking in front of other people, telling them how you like the way your stepmother cooks this particular food or whatever. People (not just Asians) love being complimented about in front of other people (although sometimes the Chinese have a tendency to do this passive-aggressively with each other, similar to Rachel McAdams in “Mean Girls” with “I love your skirt/that is the ugliest skirt I’ve ever seen”, but that is a topic for another day).

    Hope that helps!

  • 10 AC // Mar 26, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    I don’t know how prevalent it is in the U.S., but in Toronto, Canada, most of the fob Chinese I’ve seen seem crazy about cell phone accessories (kinda like the psycho Japanese killer school girl in “Kill Bill Vol. 1″ with the bunch of stuff on her knife). That might be a good topic for a new blog.

  • 16 christine // Apr 3, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    Oh, and BEING SARCASTIC in just about everything they say. It might be an “outgoing” way to deal with one’s fundamentally “private” personality. Younger Chinese Americans do this a lot. It seems they are using sarcasm to express something snidely while keeping their full meaning half-hidden, or softening it as a polite thing to do.

    Chinese love: using umbrellas in ANY KIND OF WEATHER, running across the street, anything Hello Kitty (or is that the Japanese?), picking through my recycle bins on trash day, and the young girls like to dress as prostitutes when they go grocery shopping.

  • 23 YASPY Chick // Apr 10, 2008 at 11:44 am

    Hello Kitty is Japanese, but Chinese people love lots of things Japanese (including cars, rice cookers and cute stationery and toys)! Of course, if you’re older than 65, you’d be totally closeted about it.

  • 24 Steve // Apr 10, 2008 at 12:08 pm

    you know you’re chinese when…
    -you go to a party and you immediately drink all the yogurt on the drinks table before eyeing the baijiu
    -you have a karyoke system set up in your basement
    -whenever you find yourself in a crowd of other asians you intuitively separate by gender
    -you get pissed when somebody heats unused rooms in the winter
    -you can’t get by without your dangling charm hanging from the rearview mirror and find yourself spotting friends on the road by identifying their rearview mirror decorations

    When in a group of different types of Asians, Chinese will automatically identify their ethnicity, i.e. those are Koreans, those are Japanese, those are Vietnamese, etc.

    I don’t know if this is just my mom, but she compares all food from India and eastwards to Chinese food, as if these countries are all some small province in China.

    -Chinese people only talk about three things:
    1. Money
    2. Food
    3. Education
    -Reusing tin foil and plastic cling wrap….and Bounty paper towels til they fall apart.
    -Plastic runners over Oriental rugs.

    You know you’re Chinese when:

    All your milk is in plastic bags.

    To be polite to another man, you offer him cigarettes and bai jiu.

    For some reason, you have the constant impulse to hock lugies without consideration for people standing next to you.

    You point out a foreign person and talk about them every time you see one.

    You walk past someone from another country and wait until you’re 10 miles behind them to say, “HKKKELLO(?!)”

    You use mei bai.

    You’re proud of being Chinese, but want to be White.

    You are at KTV at least once a week.

    Chinese elderly seem scared of living close to or with views to a cemetary.

    Are among the few international travelers who spend more on shopping than on air tickets and hotels.

    As business people traveling to Europe – Chinese enjoy the foreign places and then drop by the next China Restaurant, almost regardless of the ( low) quality offered.

    By the way, I hate saying this but it is true for me, that some people is really good at English(vocabulary and reading perhaps), but they cannot speak and they never speak, and they complain about their IELTS, and i was really upset that every time i was trying to speak English or German with them for practising, they will say this is china, why not speaking Chinese.

    I met a Zhejiang woman online who said she was divorced. When I was about to leave the USA to meet and marry her, her daughter revealed to me that her mother had lied to me and that her mother was still married to her dad. My love interest next day told me that she had planned to divorce in the next few weeks in time for us to be married!
    Does this relate to mass queuing behavior? How does one explain this to a decendent of European Christians? Could I have been arrested in China for marrying a woman who had not been properly divorced? Is this unusual?

    Chinese like to follow you around in stores… they can copy what you buy.

    This is supposed to be satirical, so no one should take offence, but it seems that some people out there really think that it is a genuine list of Chinese behaviour. These things could apply to all races.
