    Hi Yok Yee, I have never met anyone from Oklahoma. Do you get a lot of tornadoes there? Is there a large Asian community there? I’ld like to go there one day.

    It is funny that u say that u will make your children watch TVB drama, because that is exactly what I m doing. They learn so much Chinese from watching it. I don’t allow my boys to watch regular American TV except for some reality shows. I think most of the American drama are age appropriate for my boys. The TVB dramas can teach them so much about Chinese culture. My younger son use to refuse to speak in Chinese, but recently he started to watch more TVB drama with me and he picked up the Chinese really quickly.

    Like MB said, this blog is not just about food, but about friendship. I have met a lot of wonderful ladies from the blog. Thanks to MB of course. MB you’re the BEST!

    2. Although I’m not exactly dating an “ang moh,” I’m dating a Vietnamese whose cultures are somewhat different from Chinese-does that count?

    I find that Vietnamese and Chinese culture are pretty similar. My husband is also Vietnamese. Have you learnt any Vietnamese yet? I’ve been with my husband for 10 years and can’t understand a full conversation but can pick up some words here and there 🙂

    Hi Yok Yee, thanks for sharing!

    Hello everyone! Thanks for the wonderful comments!

    Ilovetvb- We actually do get alot of tornados here! Funny you should ask b/c I was helping my dad with some gardening this past week and it was sunny and hot but all of a sudden the clouds started to get darker, wind began to blow furiously and we hurried to finish up the gardening so we won’t get hit by the tornado. Good times in Oklahoma!

    I’ve found that the hardest thing dating a vietnamese guy is the language barrier. My siblings and I grew up watching TVB so we know alot of chinese slang and sometimes when I talk to my b/f I want to say something but I don’t know how to express myself in english! All I want to do is break out in hong kong gangster talk! Hahaha
