Korean Delight

Tee-hee. We have some delegates in town for a conference at the moment, including the one from Korea, who has a lovely soft delicate feminine phone manner. All my boys are big devotees of Korean TV dramas and are all in a lather at the thought of our Korean delegate being in town, who hitherto has only been the subject of their fevered imaginings. What a wonderful thing is the human imagination! I have told her to take off her glasses and put a bit of lippy on before the Fan Club finally get to meet her.

A graceful exit from the HK blog scene.
Or will we see you again as "life in Barnes"?
I think you should post all the how to be a British person questions on this blog then we can check if we are still British

I have a question they should put in the test to find out how British you are: "What's bangers and mash?" Only a Brit would know that! No one else could possibly guess the answer.

Perhaps you just have not eaten in as many pubs as other people. Surely a sign of good taste!

'Festonhuff' is the normal pronounciation, although there are those who think it should be 'Fanshawe'.

Reminds me of when my sister lived in what I thought was Farnbourough (rhymes with Marlboro), when instead it was Farnbrah. Ingshe still teases me about it to this day, all the while laughing so hard she cries. British people are so mean.

there is nothing the British like more than laughing at foreigners mispronouncing English. It is because of their own excellent foreign language skills (= speaking English only louder and more slowly).
