Thread: Interracial couples in China town ?

    Interracial couples in China town ?

    Hi everybody.

    Happy New Year to all.

    Anybody been to China town recently ?

    I was there recently and was shocked at the number of interracial couples in restaurants.

    Boy, there are millions of French Quebecois girls who ate noodle soups with chopsticks with their Asian boyfriends.

    Is this the new trend now ?

    Also, anybody has been to Cafe Depot in China town ?

    Place seems real nice, with coffee and a mini market close by.

    A lot of people use chop sticks to eat soup. You tilt the bowl into your mouth and slurp. The chopsticks are used to help things along.

    Not a new trend.

    I think he means Quebecois girls dating Oriental guys as a "new trend."

    Does this offend anyone? How about African American guys and Quebecois girls? I thought Quebec was a very open minded place as to ethnicity among other things. Is there much prejudice as to interracial dating? I always seem to notice that most of the prejudice is directed at non-caucasian men who date white women while most caucasian men seemingly have no problem dating non caucasian women. Why the double standard? Interesting.

    I saw a white comedian on P-diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy on HBO this last summer who had a great line as to the interracial dating issue. He said to a crowd of 90% black people, "I just want to thank each and every black dude in here tonight, for taking all the fat white women off us white dudes hands!" LOL!

    Sometimes I think its a sin

    Actually I think Hydragoat's post says it all. We really don't notice the interracial couple thing here, unless the guy the lady is with looks like a total loser who can't get a job. But seeing "millions" of Quebecois ladies in a restaurant eating noodle soup at the same time would kind of freak me out.

    I had an Han Chinese girl friend when I was in Peking.
    That caused a few hard hateful stares in China. She didn't mind, because I was a rich green eyed foreign devil. I didn't mind because she was the cutest thing with a pedunda you could die for.

    As for the Asian guys with Quebecois girls. Sounds like a university crowd. Chinese students are mostly guys.

    As for white girls. They know what they can get. An educated looker will have high standards. If she is fat, plain and is pragmatic she will set her standards accordingly. As for guys that want passports out of the third world they will set their sites accordinly also.

    But you know all that.

    I don't think it's a new trend, Montreal is no different from other North American city. First of all how do you know if they were a couple? They could've been just friends. I'm Asian and I have non-asain female friends who I take to chinatown for lunch or dinner. I wouldn't say Quebec woman are anymore open to interracial relationship than woman from the US or other parts of Canada.

    Interracial couples

    I'm also Asian and have been dating non-Asian girls for most of my adult life. Pretty normal thing in most big Canadian cities now. I think this is due to the environment we grow up in. I think that many Canadian-Asians (both male and female) who grew up here actually prefer dating non-Asians. After all, we grew up watching Charlie's Angels, Wonderwoman, Miss America, etc., so we end up with a certain impression of what beauty is. Most newly immigrant Asians on the other hand, still prefer to be with their own since their version of what beauty is in their home countries can be very different.

    I think the mixing of the races is a good thing. Look at Tiger Woods, a mix of three races: American Indian, Black and Asian. Although I am a Caucasian dude whose personal preference is Caucasian women, I think interracial dating can be fun. I have had sex with women of every other race, but my preference runs to Caucasian women. My preference in cuisine, however, is Asian.

    However mixing Chinese and French cuisine is another story. It should never be done, and I personally experienced the disastrous results recently at a Chinatown Restaurant called Le Maison Ghang Zou on de la Gauchietiere. I ordered the Chef's Special Prawn and made the mistake of not asking what it was and just assuming it was "special." What it was, was Chinese food cooked for the Quebecoise palate. The shrimps were served in a thick, rich white sauce like a hollandaise sauce. Shrimps should never be cooked in such a manner. It is really sinful to do so if you ask me. However it is my own fault for not asking what it was. I had hoped to get some authentic Cantonese food and instead got fake Chinese food cooked for the French Canadian palate.

    Interesting.

    I wouldn't assume that just because men and women are having lunch with each other that they are dating. Often, non-Asians will ask Asian friends to take them to an Asian restaurant.

    Anyway, I am Asian-American, and in my whole life in the USA, I have only seen one WF/AM couple. Canada is more liberal, but I don't recall seeing such couples there either.

    On the other hand, I see a LOT of WM/AF couples, everywhere. As a matter of fact, many of my female relatives are married to white men.

    I have heard from friends that Europe is MUCH more liberal regarding interracial couples than North America.

    Is it so disgusting? I, as a caucasian man, date a lot of other ethnicity and never denied my asian girl attraction. No problem with asian men did the same with white girls if it is your problem.

    You are right on this one, Lawless. Unless you lived the same situation has i did, you can not imagine how you're right on this one.

    EagerBeaver, i guess our palate is not so much developped than your honorable one. Do you know enough about our taste to denigrate it? Maybe this restaurant, by his location, is just what we used to say a tourist trap?

    Cargo,

    I think you need to re-read my post. I was looking for Chinese food cooked for a Chinese palate, not my palate or a French Canadian palate. You need to do a better job reading the posts. There is a sign in the window saying "authentic Cantonese" so why would I expect anything else?

    How is a Chinese restuarant that cooks its food with simulated French type sauces a "tourist trap"?

    I read your replies to posts and sometimes it seems as though you do not understand what is being written at all. Maybe you should try using Babelfish-

    EB: I like to saute shrimp and then make a garlic white wine cream sauce, which is rich, creamy and sublime ! Not, however, a Hollandaise, which uses eggs as the thickening agent instead of cream. What you got was "a la facon du chef !"

    Orientals................the new trend!

    A few years ago, I knew a woman that had just went through a divorce. Her husband had dumped her to marry the oriental woman. She told me that quite a few of her friends went through the same thing and also some of her friends children were dating orinetals. She wondered what the hell is so hot about orentals?
    I do not know this for a fact, but it could be that it is percieved that oriental women and now oriental men treat their mates with more respect and admiration? I was just told recently by a woman that she had positive expeiences with oriental men and they have a "different mentality".
    I am sure the new movie out GEISHA is already giving a few of you guys ideas.
