All I can say is that it takes skill, lol!~ Have you ever received directions / orders / instructions from someone that you know nuts what they are talking about? Lol!~Here's the Malaysian version on directions: TOURIST: How do I get to the twin towers? LOCAL: You see the two sharp pointy things there? Ah, that one lah...you go like that like that ( doing some taichi moves as the hand goes from right to left, or was it left to right ) then turn three times, then go straightDid you get it TOURIST: (BRING UP LANDMARKS, PROMINENT ONES NOT THE SMALL ROADSIDE STALL YOU ALWAYS PASS BY THAT HAS A SLANTED SIGNBOARD WITH THREE NAILS JUTTING OUT AT THE SIDE OF IT. IF HE/SHE STILL DOESN'T GET IT, DON'T GET MAD BECAUSE 99.99% IS THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT CLEAR) On orders / instructions: Malaysian: I need the blue colour one for Ah Tu five and red colour one for Ah Kau eight, then remember do purple colour one three for Mutu and orange colour one got twenty one the number on it that one six The foreigner: (!?#$%+×*@ in his.heart) ( JUST GIVE TOTAL NUMBER ON EACH COLOURS, NOT INTERESTED WHO THEY ARE FOR AS THAT IS YOUR REFERENCE )

i react according to situations. So i probably will say something i think the other party would understand. I won't succeed all the time but at least i tried.

Lol!~ Bravo!~I guess you would understand and relate the most since we're from the same region. Try to imagine if we put in the multiracial elements in the giving directions part, lol!~
