    Maybe he was disqualified on his choice of friends? :blush:

    Seriously, all banks using different scoring systems - it could have been as simple as the amount of credit he already has.

    Appending a smiley onto a statement doesn't make it funny to me.

    What were you actually trying to say in your post?

    I've been to Kuala Lumpar and would be amazed if it is not significantly less expensive than Hong Kong to live in - it's not really comparable as a city.

    Index - how did it turn out, are you in HK...

    Wrong, and wrong as normal.

    I still think complementing a gaijin on their "chopstick skills" is more likely to be an ice breaker to start a conversation/break a silence rather than anything...

    I never claimed it would Mike. I don't know if I will last to one year in Japan, or three, or five.

    My point was that being here five months does not exclude someone from having an opinion.

    I may have only been here five months, but I've been here five months with my eyes, ears and mind open.

    I've also talked to a lot of people here and asked them for their experiences - some bad,...

    Don't take what you read in this thread about Japan as a representative sample of most foreigners experiences. Japan can be a hard place to integrate into, but if you make enough effort and are open...

    Anti-racist
    You scored 18!

    Hahaha. Is this after I helped you understand what is actually meant? Not so long ago you were thinking that what most term discrimination was actually prejudice.

    I saw a lot of this in Hong Kong. In fact much more than I have in Japan, although that is probably/possibly because I have been here so little time - only 4 months now.

    In HK anyone with vageuly...

    Of course prejudice leads to discrimination, in the same way as drinking can lead to being drunk - however the two things are not the same :)

    Actually, you're wrong again. Prejudice is simply an opinion or idea, formed by "pre-judging" someone or something.

    The act of denying an alien an apartment to rent is discrimination.

    I find it incredible you can even purport to hold a valid opinion on this matter, given you will have seen a tiny miniscule percentage of all the programming on TVs worldwide, in every country.

    My point was aimed specifically at the things Maciamo posted, like Japanese asking him if he asks sushi, if Belgium has four seasons and things like that.

    So you admit to doing one of the exact same things you accuse the Japanese of doing?!

    Do two "wrongs" might a "right" for you? Or just don't believe in practisicing what you preach?
