so everyone has different feeling and thought.
for me, i left China 12 years ago, so i've been tired of the life here, and become more interested in China. I'm planning to go back to China to work in about 2 years, especially, after I was told by others that life in China is more exciting and people like me are more likely to have a good career there.
Many new immigrants think that they are new here now, after few years of hardship, they will have a better future. Wrong! I'm sorry to say that. The highest point you can achieve here is what you had in China before you left there. Needless to mention the life of being a minority here which is not likely to be changed in your life time.
Many people think that they are doing it for their children: Although they are not happy, their children will have a better life. Wrong again!! You're not doing any favor for you children but push them into something they (and you) are not aware of:
-the minority status will haunt the children all time everywhere
-the children are harmed psychologically at a very young age, for that they don't speak the language as well as others for many years and other similar issues.
-when the children grow up, they're Chinese but don't know much about China, they're Canadians? not without the hypen ... just keep wondering about their real identity.
-and no way they can go back to China to have a living, so they don't have any advantages over people in China; but while they are here, you don't much advantages they have over the main stream Canadian, right?

回到话题: 大家好,我是新来的。看这个坛子好久了,真喜欢这里的气氛。不过我还在北京,还没有申请,正犹豫呢。希望以后真的能成为大家的好朋友。(小声地嘀咕)也不知有没有人愿意理我。
