After 2 and a half weeks of isolation from the urban, I'm finally back in a place with decent internet access!!!!
I should be talking about Cny, the preps, and perhaps report on my poultry practical in the deep outskirts of Karak town, but something struck me otherwise.
There was this interview with a celebrity on the radio the other day, while one of the topic they were discussing about was:
"If you had a partner in the future, would you be bothered of the nationality of the person, or the language you would be sharing to communicate?"
This struck me hard, like REALLY hard.
It's not a secret that T and I do have a certain degree of language barrier here.
The answer from the celebrity was:
"I'm fine with any nationality, but I would still prefer best for the partner of mine to speak in the language I'm comfortable with, in my case Mandarin"
I'm okay with dealing T in English, since T is putting effort to get lovey dovey with me in the language T thinks I'm most comfortable with.
Mandarin as mother tongue, English as first language, Japanese and Thai as social interest; I'm still struggling on which to be on active mode with T.
I personally don't mine any ethnicity or nationality; in fact I'm proud to be with a person with total different background for the richness of culture behind it, but I wouldn't living in the bubble of both of us only forever right? Gosh I hope not forever.
I wouldn't say my English is of Cambridge level, but I would still put it above average. T's probably would be like, hmm, on the way to average? It's not a bother now, but I would probably know more when I go to T's place this April.
So, would you love to have your other half with a language you are comfortable with, or would be fit into that other half instead?
PS: It's T's birthday today! Supposed to pos-laju a handmade bracelet over, but CNY caught me up. I guess I shall do it next few days.
