Chinese New Year can be a good opportunity to bond with your extended family.

Or not.

Series of Instagram Stories

During the festive season, Malaysian Rachel Wan drew a series of illustrations on Instagram Stories listing five things she doesn’t like about Chinese people.

The illustrations were then uploaded to Facebook on Feb. 6, 2019.

Wan, however, preempted her audience by putting up a disclaimer in her Facebook caption:

“A lil’ somethin’ somethin’ I cooked up this CNY.

Disclaimer: I’m making a broad generalisation of the Chinese race. I do not intend to reaffirm negative stereotypes. So just have fun with it.”

Here are the five reasons listed.

1) It is not what that is said, but what that is not said that counts

Chinese people apparently hate confrontation, too:

2) They can be the most politically incorrect people

But not all comments are bad — one has to take into context the tone and nuance:

3) Chinese people love to compare

It’s common to have your parents compare results:

4) They love money

Wan supplied some statistics which may or may not be accurate, but supposedly prove that Chinese people love money ¯\_ツ_/¯

5) Chinese parents can be impossible to please

Most would be familiar with high expectations Asian parents:

But they give their seal of approval once in a while, albeit in a rather understated way:

Chinese people relate

Besides being shared by more than 800 people, they were quite a few comments agreeing with what Wan had pointed out.
