    Leave your pride at home.

    The Chinese are tremendously proud and you must always give face unless you want to build a long enemies list waiting for the chance to take you down.

    This is the same as anywhere in Asia. However, Asians don't resort to violence due to all the legal & penalties issues, so they do things in a very different way.

    Keep smiling people.

    Um I have a feeling that might not be totally true - no violence reported anywhere in Asia?

    Talk about a good laugh

    This lady and many of her colleagues might have a slightly different view just to start there. Murder rate is twice as high in the Philippines as the US. Maybe they are not asian enough for you? Thailand's murder rate is three times of what it is in Europe? Shall we go on to sexual assault and violence against women?

    Neither are Asian enough for me.

    Asia is the Sinosphere + Japan (aka orientals). Basically Chopstick countries. These are safer than Western and European countries by far. I have no comments about TH and PH and they are worlds apart from the Oriental nations anways.

    A bunch of sensitive people on here.

    Guess Laughing too much is pretty silly, eh? I'm having a laugh now.

    Leave your pride at home please.

    Well done for rewriting geography. What continent does India belong to then for example?

    Stupidity knows no bounds.

    When I want to do some trolling, I'll have to revisit your posts for inspiration

    Ah yes Japan with it's peaceful history is an excellent example of a pacific nation and who doesn't enjoy the fairy tale stories of the khmer rouge or the kumbaya moments of the chinese revolution. And then there are the local triads who convince people not to cross them with flowers on their meat cleaversOh wait triads must just be legends...
