Those babes and their…

As I have briefly mentioned, I spent a short stint working in China a few years ago. That short stint was filled with many eye opening and experiences. One of which was when I asked to play in the inter-department football tournament.

The guy who got me into the team was this man by the name of Feng (mandarin for “wind”). Feng is the person who handled my work permit and other immigration related matters.

The entire team can’t really pronounce my English name. I am fine with people addressing me in my Cantonese name but to be called in Mandarin was rather weird. Hence, I am known as “shi-chi-hao” (number 17), the number of my jersey.

And so, we were in our final group match. And because it was a match that we had to win, my fellow teammates managed to gather some reinforcements. They came in the form of female colleagues who were kind enough to act as our cheerleading team.

Well, some of them were pretty hot looking. So I told my then colleague who is also a Malaysian and also happened to be in the team with me that it was the first time I ever had such a competitive match with proper pitch, referee, pre-match procedure and now… hot looking china dolls as pom-pom girls.

Quite a good feeling I must say…

And so we took our position on the pitch and got ready for the kick-off. The girls cheered and just then… just right then… a few of them did this…




































“krrraaaaakk…… ptui!”

They freaking spit around like machine guns. No matter how hot looking they were, the “ptui!” action just turned you off immediately.

Hey Zewt, not sure if you have chance to witness this or not, they also like to wear full suit of pyjamas (those one set type, with patterns and flowers as patterns) and wear fluffy slipper (those u wear inside your own house) and go to hypermarket like Carrefour, those middle age women and men. Not all of them do this, but you can always spot a few in carrefour around 8pm.

Haha, normal la in China. I was in one of the nice hotels in Shanghai. I was staring at the marble floor cos it was so shiny I could see my own reflection on it. It irked me when i started noticing sputumns on the floor...And i witnessed a chinaman 'ptui' on the floor too. I became very aware of what am i stepping onto on China floor ever since.
No offence but most of them are just 'an ape shaved'.

Once the news here reported that Asians spit! How embarrassing to be generalized. They think it is bloody disgusting. I think so too. I don't have the habit of spitting. Just swallow it lah hhahaha! The acid in the stomach can kill all bacteria.
