Marrying a Singapore Chinese Girl is GOOD

I’m going to post a short one about this, since it has happened to me about five times (probably more) it seems relevant and irrelevant at the same time:

After the first 5 minutes of grilling with questions, the conversation turns to:

Driver: You wife local or from your UK?

Me: Local

[Driver shuffles in his seat]

Driver: She’s Chinese? Malay?

Me: Singaporean Chinese

Driver: GOOD! [takes on hand of the wheel to give me a “thumbs up!”]


Next time I’ll have to try a different race/nationality/gender and see how the reaction is.
