My parents are from SE Asia, and English isn't my first language, but it's my best language, and I lament that I am American, through and through.

x.x

It's very sad. But welcome! I don't blame you for making me depressed! xD

Welcome indeed, I'm sure we all have no problem helping you improve your English.
What is your primary language if you don't mind my asking...
I ask because science fiction and fantasy is getting big in China right now, an ultimately that will filter down to other Asian countries, so...you've got a lot to look forward to over there

Ya, English is quite a language to speak. I remember the only two words I spoke that wasn't Tagalog: 'Mama' and 'Phood'.

My best friend is Filipino too! Don't worry we'll try not to exclude you because of the whole island issue.
