Accents and I

Don't we all?!!

When I was in Brissie, I was stopped along Brissie's Queen St Mall by a bunch of guys visiting from Sydney with the question if I was Korean. During my adolescence, my cousins claimed that I have the feature of a Korean. Even my Korean teacher in 2009 said I looked 80% to 90% Korean!

When I got back from Malaysia early March, several people at Camberwell Market asked if I was a China Chinese.

Just two weeks ago, when the handyman came to do some repairs on the house, I was asked if I am an American.

Me? American? That's the first and probably the last.

I found that thought funny somehow. I guess it's my speaking American English, all thanks to growing up with American movies and series such as CSI, Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill and so on.

Here's a clip on Russell Peters on Accents. He is hillarious though he can be crude at times.


On an unrelated matter, I am finally a full fledged CPA member! Now, the question that begs to be answered: should I keep and maintain the membership or let it go.

But yes, the Brits still sound the best!
