Hi farmer! Noticed that you've just joined this forum. May I extend my welcome to you.Originally Posted by farmer
Glad you got your Masters and congratulations (if it's not recent, my congratulations is still not too late).
My grandparents were poor too and they came south to Nanyang from Guangdong, which is why I'm in Singapore today.
I always look forward to having more friends everywhere, including this forum through which I had the honour to meet Red5, Ronbee, TDOL, Casiopiea, Shane and Mike who are all teachers/experts here to answer questions.
I do not have a big number of friends in China although I've been there many times to different parts. But I do have some good friends (excluding friends from Singapore working in China) among the China Chinese. Quite naturally, I like China very much. Imagine, Singapore has four million people (including a million who are expatriates working here) which is not even the population of many cities in China.
