    Quick question for whoever cares to answer: when travelling in Asia where do you tell people (ladies) you are from? Do they have a preference?

    I am a proud Irish Canadian from one of our larger cities, bilingual, well paid, and very social.

    Do I say the city (good paying job)? My country (good values)? My cultural heritage (good times)?

    I have heard this can make a big difference in some places.

    Thoughts?

    If ur mongering it really doesnt matter. Most of these cock monkeys couldnt point out California on a US map. I always say USA, regardless. If Im talking to another foreigner I say California. Whatever you do dont say INDIA, cos India man stink! :oops:

    Good to know. I had no intention of saying India, they would know I was lying the moment I mention toilets or soap!

    Where in Cali? I have family there too.

    Just say America. They love that. I know that includes Canada and Mexico, as well as Central and South America. But to Asians, they assume that's the US and that's what they like to hear.

    The only problem with that is they assume you've got money and aren't too bright.

    Most girls in SEA will have no idea what Ireland is. They would not know one single canadian city. Maybe no more than 3 us cities. So "america" or "canada" is good enough.

    In Pattaya I tell them "Farangland" and see how long it takes them to get the joke ;)

    Has any Thai got the joke yet?

    To me the Thai have only a couple of distinctions in their minds: Thai, not Thai (but with money), and not Thai (poor).

    The ones with a good sense of humor usually get it right away.

    Ha ok. Well first assumption would be correct I suppose in comparison, the second depends on the time of night lol.

    Go to Philippines and tell them you are from America, you might as well start getting your condom....they all aspire to be American (or have some American in them).

    They're just making small talk before you slip them the D so as long as it's a country they've heard of, just don't make the convo too confusing

    * I did meet this black woman who owned a cool wine shop in Canton. We got super drunk talking about factories closing down and only o&g companies moving in for the Utica play. She was on my level. But I'm from the South and prefer black people over white union members all day long.

    Serious - if they are dumb, say you are from Mars sent to repopulate an ancient alien species. If they are smart, just lie to them and judge how their mind works. If you want to discuss geography, say you are from Texas.
