Being a Chinese American in China has been "interesting".

Many local Chinese find it strange for a Chinese guy speaking English.
They look at me thinking "He looks Chinese but he is speaking English" WTF??????

I guess it would be the same as a white dude only speaking Chinese.
Another curious thing is how the local Chinese see me.
One see's me as nothing more than a "foreigner".
Others see me as being unique, having a western mind, and yet having pure Chinese blood.

One advantage is I'm able to "walk among the locals" without raising stares.

"The saga continues"

when you open your mouth, they will notice (how many? just the ones beside you)

when you close your mouth, you are a "simple" Chinese among them

no big deal

could be interesting if you teach them to dance the hulla hulla

The stares I got from the crowed bus
