I originally posted this on Forumosa.com then I thought “Shit, I’m posting over here all the time and never on my blog, maybe it should be the other way around!” So now anyone that happens by today will get to read it here.
Laowai = Foreigner (I guess it’s kind of bad or something, I don’t know. Not “PC” anyway.)
After a healthy veggie dinner I was strolling home and went past the local Ganster run gambling place (like I often do), when this guy sitting on a parked scooter goes “Laowai! Laowai! Laowai!” I gave him a looked and laughed. Then he started mumbling something so I turned around to see what he was talking about.
He went on to tell me about that commercial for that food where in the commercial they go “Laowai! Laowai! Laowai!” and he was just mimicking that commercial (for some reason unknown to me). I laughed even harder the second time and went on my way.
That’s my interesting story for the day.
