... does anyone have the exact weblink for this story (Chinese, English, or otherwise)?



Thanks for the encore.  I had already asked for the link in  #16 ... in case you didn't see it.

I think jessejames has the link and let's see if he would post it for us.


Interesting, "jessejames" is a guy's name but how come his avator shows him as a young girl?

I hope the man injured is recovering and well.

The tourist did what he could to help, I'm glad he lent a hand.



Ronin, indeed!  Did you not see the Chinese "lending a hand" too? Maybe, 2 hands ...

Next time, you can point that out ... and not have to wait for me.

Shidi, where's your cat avatar?


Isn't that a bit OFF-topic here?


So, could you explain your meaning of "Chinese indifference" to us?

... that whampoa is a foreigner.

She / he does not live in China or know anything about China other than from being a tourist. She / he lives in Singapore, as is just as much a loawai as the man ...



Don't bring shame to your own gweilos.  

Remember the title of this thread, "helpful and respectable" LaoWai (and written in capital "L" and capital "W" )

How interesting, we see a different kind of Gweilos here ??


Maybe, the gweilo in the picture is mere acting and for show only, but the real ones are the ONES we see in Forum !

Whampoa is such a vile coward that she / he cannot even offer real thanks to the man who is helping in the photo.


My thanks are only for the REAL, GOOD DEED.  I thank the gweilo, no doubt BUT I think the Chinese guy with the handphone to call for the ambulance deserves greater credit, for without his handphone and fast-acting, the injured man's life could be in great danger.  

The "redirection" of the traffic, though helpful in not killing the lying victim, does little help to bring the injured man to the hospital where immediate treatment is needed.  


So, conversely, you may ask, why didn't that gweilo ("helpful and respectable LaoWai") stop any of the vehicles to ask its driver if he would drive the injured man to the nearest hospital?  Instead, he shooed them all away ... That's "helpful"??

Thanks, Ganzhuolin

My sentiments exactly! Indeed, what does the writer want? What are his/her intentions with such an obviously biased and also distorted interpretation?



Agree with you.  

Chinese people are modest and trusting people.  It is very easy to influence them with distorting information.  

A picture tells a thousand words, indeed.  So, I look at the picture and NOT what the writer wishes to dictate to me !
