    Tan Family Rates the Park

    http://thestar.com.my/lifestyle/stor...sec=lifetravel

    Not sure about this, but thought it was post-worthy.

    Seems to confirms a love for stage-shows, and the desire for more thrill-rides (with almost everybody loving Space Mountain).

    Anyway, worth a read.

    Re: Tan Family Rates the Park

    That review was interesting; seems to me that they've never visited a Disney park before. They seem to find non-thrilling attractions boring, hence their critical reviews of Buzz Lightyear and the Jungle River Cruise. Seems to me that they don't understand that Disney magic or immersion you get when you go on attractions like these. Oh well, it was a unbiased review and a good indicator of what non-Disney fans think of the park.

    ORWEN: Well, I'd like to hear what the Green & Pink families have to say, too! Not to mention the Yellow family. Every color of the rainbow should be represented, really.

    Me'thinks it's interesting to see what folks who aren't pre-programmed by TV and culture actually think of a Disney theme park.
    Me'thinks it would be interesting to compare their reactions if they visited Disneyland in California.

    Re: Tan Family Rates the Park

    BTW, Old Bill, I think the Tans were "Hong Kongers"...

    Although it's not exactly American TV and culture, they're completely
    "pre-programmed" already. My guess is that they're familiar w/ Disney
    as about as much as the Aussies..

    The last name "Tan" comes from Singapore or Malaysia.

    Not Hong Kong.

    You guys are giving the Tan Family way too much credit. After all... they are only tourists.

    Which is one step behind the US - all we need is a park and we would be equal.

    Don't put yourself down so much. I actually believe the Aussies do *GET* what the disney experience is all about, unlike the americans of late.

    Yup, I whole-heartedly agree w/ TDLFAN... the Aussie Disney fans that I
    see & meet seem to "get" it much more than the General American Public.

    Hey, one learns something new every day!

    Thanks for that, HKDL! BTW. could it be that originally that they're originally from
    Singapore or Malaysia, but live in HK now? Reason I ask is I know one Tan that is from HK (and another from Taiwan; but he's actually gone by Tang
    before as well).

    "Tan" and "Tang" are 2 different surnames.

    Actually "Tan" is the Singaporean/Malaysian equivalent to the Chinese Surname "Chan".


    But we rarely use "Tan" in Mainland China/Hong Kong/Taiwan as Surname for "Chan".

    quite likely that yr friend might be singaporean/malaysian residing in Hong Kong if his last name is "TAN" but due to the complexity of the chinese language, the Word "TAN" might refer to other not so popular chinese last names as well.
    In order to properly identify the Right Chinese Surnames, writing the names down in Chinese Language would clearly help.
