Of cause everyone know banana is a type of fruit in yellow which boost your energy and known to be able to make you happy and improve your mood.
but, it also refers to a person who cant read/write mandarin. i have no idea why people use the word 'banana', why not 'apple' or 'watermelon' or....??
i always thought i possess a chinese look and people will assume i know mandarin right away cause i used to speak mandarin very often. but sometimes, people are surprised that i know mandarin actually. they thought i'm one of the banana =__=" do i look like a banana? or perhaps my mandarin is not so good?
i was from TMGS(Treacher Methodist Girls School) but is doesnt means i dont know mandarin. hey at least i took Mandarin as my elective subject up to PMR level (this summarizes i have at least 9 years of mandarin education!)
i blog in english but it doesnt means i dont know mandarin. the reason why i always blog in english is because i find it whole lot easier to type in english, rather than pin yin. if pin yin is as easy as typing english, i wont mind to blog in mandarin at all! ;)
so the next time you see me, dont hesitate to talk to me in mandarin ok!
