Sumimasen, no hablar guó-yǔ... Joogooleh?!

It's weird - tho kinda expected - that I keep initially reacting to reply to people here in Japanese... then I realise my mishtake and switch to Cantonese... which is often no help... next comes Hakka which brings even more confusion.

I'm gonna try and use English as a last resort this time, as opposed to Japan where I just threw words around willy nilly and didn't care as long as the understanding got translated.

Another only natural - but still unusual feeling is the fact that I feel more like a foreigner here in this Chinese society than I did when I was a BBC in a Japanese society. Heh.
