Why do you speak to Grace in English?”
“I don’t know….She has got this English-speaking look so I tend to speak to her in English.”
“So, does that mean I have a Chinese-speaking look?”
Now I know..anyway I have tried replying to conversations in Cantonese but both still talks to me in English. And sometimes I find myself speaking in Mandarin, Cantonese and English in one lunch session when I talk to different people. Some knows Mandarin but not Cantonese. Some speaks Cantonese but not Mandarin. English is still the universal language but I’m glad I speak all Mandarin, Cantonese and English so it doesn’t really matter. Oh! And a smattering of Korean.
