You mean Frank might not be for real? That would be a sad thing.

If Phil has kids, maybe 2 whites did make a Wong. Having grown up in Milwaukee with an obviously Polish name, it's nice to see that somebody else has a "funny" name.

Actually, Wong is the most common surname in the world.
The most common first name is Mohamed. I never met a mohamed wong though.

Hey Phil, I guess you and I have something in common -- in some form or another. In my case, I'm just simply a mutt! I'm half Chinese from my dad's side, and Filipino-Spaniard from my mother's. I don't read or speak Chinese either, and I look more like an "amigo" than your so-called "ABC" or "Banana" ?

Hey Ignimbyte,
That would make you a Chiquitta Banana!! :D :)
I remembered some other ones that have the same meaning as Banana. I have also been called a pineapple and a twinkie.

Yes Frank we understood that you were just greeting us. However, in America we often want to tell someone else to go to hell. That has a different meaning all together. It is the opposite of a greating. That is where the humor lies.

Welcome to the board. What guitars do you have? How long have you been playing? What type of music do you play?
hum....my guitars are no brand,its no good and cheap,500yuan(50dollar). i like OVATION very deeply when i first see it on concert video. unfortunately,OVATION have on agancy in china,i am great disapointment!
i playing guitar since 18,when my enrolling university,a roomate teaching me ..lol...
i like ...english rock(art rock),but i havent a elctronic guitar,i just have an acoustic guitar
:p :cool:

You definitely have to check out the Subs, my wife's nieces are nuts about them. Her last name is Wong, just like Phil's.

OK...'tis the season. How can we get an Ovation to Frank? With over 4,000 of us, if we all put in a quarter we could get him a nice one. Anyone know how to get a guitar to Frank without it being stolen on the way? If you guys are game I'll help any way I can. I have a friend who's home from China for Christmas...maybe when she goes back??? I'll even put in the first $10. That'll let 39 of you off the hook. John <>{

Frank,
Nice to meet you to. I do not speak chinese very well but I will speak if necessary. The dialect I grew up with is "Toi-San"( I'm not sure if that is the correct english spelling). My friend has the same last name but his is the Wong that means King. While my name means the color yellow. Your english is fine. Much better than my chinese.

That is a really nice thought John - but if we do that will the servers here cope with 2 billion new members all keen to improve their English? I'm getting so cynical in my old age, but I'm in if it happens.

I'd "kick-in" too John, if it happens . . .
. . but I'd feel it neccesary to offer the caveat that you're opening a veritable Pandora'sBox . . .

I personally spearheaded something similar to this here a few years ago (damn! where's the time gone??), and not only did I take a financial "bath", I created a logistic headache for myself and few other key people here . . .

OK...I'm not THAT dumb. Frank may be some college student in Indiana (sorry Frank). I always have this tension going on...always believe the best about people until proven otherwise, BUT...don't be stupid. Tell you what...let's verify that Frank is in fact living in China AT THIS MOMENT. I say if he does live there...anywhere in China...that's good enough for me! We'll take it from there. John <>{

Although many of us bash the Celebrities (I just bought one and it seems very well made) it seems to me that Frank might have better luck getting a Celebrity from Korea. Maybe not with Korea-China relations, but it seemed logical to me from a geographical standpoint.
