    Btw, if I have something that I don't want the mainland Chinese to understand, I speak inggeris mixed with Hakka, I don't even need to speak Cantonese ....
    Yes, I am most surprised too.

    We never stop learning, this BIG 6s was coined by clever KL people and it has gone beyond KL borders!

    I am very sorry to say you do not know your right, it is a school right?

    You can teach the teachers too in some manners.

    Why involve the school principle in such trivial matter.

    A simple sentence like:-

    " There is a queue here " is good enough and it is a strong message! Without upsetting anybody

    I guess it is always easier to come out with better way to handle a situation AFTER the incident…

    Why not utilizing the wisdom from your ancient ancestors ? This “ 借刀杀人” method has been in the history of your ancestral country/dynasties for thousand years. I am positive it works very well, doesn’t matter big or trivial matter...

    Why dirty your hand when other can do the job for you …

    in the course of my very limited travel and dinner/meal outings, that racist greek restaurant was certainly not the first i have walked out from. I usu will apologise to those I intended to give a treat. 90% o'em understand the whys (10% are typically shy and timid)...SO, Why spend my shrinngit in such a bigoted place?
    AND i dont bother to complain or ask why my guests were moved around either. ..WHY teach racist bizmen how to prosper? I aint being paid as a biz CONsultant anyway...

    Aiya, so sorry you have not move on from your ancesters' policy. If you live overseas, you will be bullied for life because in your own country you dare not tell this mat salleh in the face of your value under all circumstances.

    BTW, is your school principle a Chinese? If he is, he maybe practising "借刀杀人”*policy too. He may not bother to forward your complaint.

    Really !! in my very limited overseas exposure, I lived in Aberdeen right after uni. Have you worked and lived in angmo place at the age of 23 ?? Although the environment wasn't that friendly due to the nature of work, there wasn't any bullying. In fact, maybe I " bullied " quite a lot of the angmo roughnecks (twice your size) as their lucrative job depends on my comment.. I also lived/worked for short period in east asia due to work assignment, what bully ??

    I think the best acid test is from this forum... Wonder who was the one get bashing/bullying from the "rumors fella" and the "you-know-who" fella...

    If you read my post carefully, I oredi told you majority of the expat in the school are brits, and a few are aussie and kiwis. Come on, have you or your children/grandchildren or any of your relatives/friends' children attended a school in Malaysia/HongKong/Singapore/PRC that run by a Chinese where the teaching staff are angmo ???

    Since you are interested to know about the outcome of my complaint, next time when you are here, I show you the reply...

    Hihihi, actually I knew your reply before you replied the post.

    Yes, in a lot of work-places overseas, I agree there is no bullying.

    But most times, you were and are The Boss, with an upper hand, right?

    You can move them around because you are The Boss with a strong arm.

    I know your son studies in that school, circumstances are different and you want to deal issues in a diplomatic way for your son's sake.

    That was why I wrote 'under all circumstances.'

    The sentence "There is a queue" is a diplomatic term.
