as we were getting ready for MOH’s christmas party last saturday, MOH said to me that the women at his office were looking forward to see me. i asked why. he said, ‘because they all think you’re so exotic.’

oh… hahahaha… muahahahaha…. huahahahaha

me? exotic? this is what i said to him: ‘i’m chinese. do you know how many chinese people there are in the world? more than a billion. i’m not exotic, i’m very common. and the indonesian part of me, again, there are more than 200 millions indonesians in the world. that’s not exotic at all.’

that is exactly why i still don’t feel like part of the community here. i feel like people look at me and single me out as a foreigner or an immigrant or whatever; not as one of them.

exotic. huh!
