A LITTLE REFRESHER COURSE

We got more than 2,000 hits yesterday to my surprise. Ok, “pretended” to be surprised – there, get off me! This statistics thing has gotten over me and really addictive to my dismay! Argh!

Anyways, Sofia seems to be hitting the right chords to up our numbers for the past days! I’m all smiles. She doesn’t have blog mates, but still managed to bring people here! Nice, baby. Really nice.

Along with the high hits yesterday came more emails than we can handle.
Is this the trend nowadays?
Readers don’t wanna hit the comment button and opt to write emails? But we are more than glad to read and reply to each email received! More smiles from me here.

Here’s what we replied to the emails we got last night. This would be useful to any emailers in the future and will serve as a refresher to those forgetful ones:


    * ASEAN and ASIAN are two different words. The former is the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the latter means people from the whole of the Asian continent.

    * NO. India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka aren’t located in Southeast Asia. They are in South Asia – no east, in case you didn’t notice.

    * S means south and E means east. Just the same as N is for North and W is for West. THEREFORE, “SE” means South East.

    * And no! Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan don’t belong to Southeast Asia either. We will not include them on the moving thingy up on our blog title no matter how you petition.

    * Oh my god, NO! Thailand is NOT in Europe.

    * This blog is about SE Asia, Eurasians and Bi-Racials. This is also about the orientation called bisexuality. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that the beautiful people we feature here share the same orientation with us. No, they don’t (unless indicated otherwise).

    * Southeast Asia only has 11 countries. The lists and rankings you will see here will only include those 11 countries with the occasional exception of East Timor, a country which is not a member of the ASEAN (see no.1) and don’t give much detail about them.

    * And lastly, NO we are not prostitutes! Ha! An email from Europe assumed that we Thais would give sexual favours for money. And no, we don't pose naked either. How dare you, little man! You are a bad dude and I hope you’ll be reincarnated as a cockroach! There. Take that!


    ****

    Ooops! By the way, we took in another blogger. His name is Morgan Heritier. The forever bastard dude who ravage my flat every weekend even when not invited. :-) There goes my blog. *sigh*
