    Afraid I'll have to disagree there. I'm pretty sure I have a better idea of my ancestry especially considering the number of members in my maternal grandmother's generation and what I know of the family from that side.
    . While debating this has been remotely interesting, it's derailing the purpose of this thread and to be honest it's leading me to reveal more about my background than I'm generally willing to share on the internet.

    really late reply.
    my ancestors were likely all very short being of "peasant" southern Chinese heritage dating back to the imperial days. 
    For those of my generation, we'd have access to significantly higher caloric content food which coupled with our environment meant we were able to attain sizes and heights well beyond our ancestors. 
    In any case genetics is a whole nother thang.
    my gf is about 5'4. She'd probably like it if I wasn't quite so much taller than her.....

    If you know where his brother lives, write an old fashioned heart felt apology letter and pass it to L's brother. Ask him to give it to L. 
    Although it's nice to apologise in person, sometimes there is a lot of sincerity in putting words to a page. And I mean properly pen and paper writing, not an email or text message.

    The very fact that you feel inadequate for a job is exactly why you should go for it. Get over your inadequacy by getting adequate on the job!

    I grew up learning traditional Chinese, so I'm much more used to it. I studied simplified for a while but for me it's the beauty and grace of traditional characters, whereas I find simplified somewhat lacking that department. I studied traditional for 5 years but stopped before I turned 10. I studied mandarins for 4 years in high school. in later years I largely taught myself how to read. I haven't had much call to write in it so while my reading ability is pretty good my writing is a bit short. 
    By extension, because I'm pretty fluent in Cantonese I used it was a crutch to enable me to learn Korean vocabulary. There's a lot more in common between Cantonese and Korean than mandarin and Korean.

    in that case, now is as good a time to strike out and see what you can do with yourself.
    a true test of your mettle is throwing yourself out into the world and seeing however you get by. Back in 2008 my siblings and I all scattered to different corners of the world. My brother went to Korea, sister to Hong Kong and I to Europe. We all left behind our family and friends to beat our own path. My brother still has struggles while my sister and I have blazed pretty solid career paths. Regardless of our career struggles we've nonetheless cemented firm relationships with people all over. 
    While before my circle was largely centred in Australia, my travels gifted me friends from Iceland to Korea and from Norway to Latin America. 
    Friends can be an anchor in rough times but they can also be a chain that holds you back.

    How're the Snowies this season? The last time I hit those slopes was back in 2007 when it snowed so hard early on in June that there was still snow in September when I went. I'm thinking to go this year if I can.
    The last time I snowboarded was back in 2009 in Korea, but I crashed out and ended up severing my gluteus maximus (yes, the rather large butt muscle) and spent 2 weeks in hospital instead. I'm almost hesitant to get on a board again but if I don't go, I don't think my gf will let me off easily

    Consider a hiatus. Before I started going out with my current partner, the one before her was back in 2006. yes, I went on a 7 year hiatus from serious dating. That's not to say I didn't meet girls I could date, but more that I didn't pursue them seriously because I just didn't really have the motivation to or circumstances precluded any possible relationship. A hiatus can be helpful in re-centring yourself before seeing if you're ready for it again. You're still young so there's no real need to rush into anything

    going for the big guns I see. It takes me forever to read in Chinese particularly as I prefer to read traditional script. There's a great deal of romanticism in reading in the "true" form of Chinese

    yeh my parents just finished watching that.
     
    I should get back into that. I used to devour Chinese history books by the shelf load

    Perhaps. But black on beige like this doesn't look good. In fact after some reconsideration. That dress doesn't really look quite right on either of them

    Thing is that Han Hyo Joo's black hair clashes with the dress whereas Hyoyeon's blonde hair works better with the dress
