Favorite quotes about me from fans, friends and advisors


(Taken from fan mail, forum postings and in person conversations)

“Despite all the flak you get you are certainly an interesting character and probably the most famous (or infamous) self-made asian on the internet”

“People can be divided into three groups
Those who make things happen
Those who watch things happen
And those who wonder what happened

You are in the first group Winston”

“Your tenacity is astounding. All the stuff you went through. Most people would have given up.”

"I love rebels and free spirits, I really do. And that's why I like Wu so much. There are so many people who turn into depressed potatoes in the USA. They just sit there and get more and more depressed. And if you don't fit in, they just label you a "loser". Wu didn't just sit down and take that. Wu rebelled against that."

(From my forum http://www.happierabroad.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=91)

“To be honest with you Winston, I think almost all of the girls you hit on (and many of them you scored) are all very hot. This makes me wonder how you did it, especially the fact that you're an oriental. I know some guys who have a lot more than you, but they can't do anywhere near what you did (in terms of girls of course).”

(Referring to my Photojournals http://www.happierabroad.com/Photojournals.htm)

“Winston, I am amazed at your ability to attract women that are much more attractive than yourself. I wish I had more of your magic. I consider myself much more attractive than you, but you seem to do better with the ladies. What is your secret?”

(Referring to my Photojournals http://www.happierabroad.com/Photojournals.htm)

I dont know how you do it, but whatever it might be (wit, charm, outgoing personality, etc.), i think you've got game (by that i mean confidence). Frankly, I think you just have an uncanny outgoing personality.”

(Referring to my Photojournals http://www.happierabroad.com/Photojournals.htm)

“You are a monster asset for meeting women.”

- A farming enthusiast I showed around Angeles City

“Photos prove everything they backup the talk. You walk the talk so to speak and very few of these other men on these Blogging sites can ever claim this not even the agency owners whom many are scamming many men.”

(Referring to my Photojournals http://www.happierabroad.com/Photojournals.htm)

“Wu-man, I got to give it to you. You have surrounded yourself by everymans passion. Hundreds of beautiful women. All thru history men have surrounded themselves and fought over the presence of women. Could there be any better reason to fight over. For what ever reason you have accomplished that feat. You have surrounded yourself by beautiful women……... P.S. I believe that you can prove your point anytime.”

"Most Asians don't think for themselves. They simply follow the pack. You are one of the exceptions."

"You're probably the most atypical Asian male I've ever met."

- An old Scottish traveler I met in Estonia who's been to a hundred countries whom I had deep conversations with

“Winston, you are a White man trapped in an Asian man's body. All the characteristics I associate with Asian men seem to be the opposite of you. You do not do what society tells you to do. You do not work hard just for the sake of working hard. You find White women attractive.”

 
“As far as you being a banana – a white man trapped in an Asian body - I would like to qualify that you are not an American white man inside an Asian body but a European Existentialist - a Frenchman, Italian or Spaniard trapped in an Asian body. You are certainly not a modern Anglo-Saxon trapped in it.”
- My Cultural Consultant who is the Socrates of International Culture

“Winston you are now an Asian American Moses, and you are leading your people out of the “captivity” of boredom, loneliness, lovelessness and datelessness to the various promised lands of milk and honey, many honeys that is and milk is to come later. Lol.”

- My Cultural Consultant who is the Socrates of International Culture

“After reading all your ebooks and following your advice to visit Lithuania I did and met the love of my life. I really give you credit because you are 100% right. I'm never dating or going with a shallow, superficial American woman ever again. I would also like to let you know that I am getting married in MAY 2008. Keep up the good work Winston you do inspire people.“

“Just thought I’d say hi and tell you how much your writing inspired me…. I think people “need” to read what you’ve written”

"I visited your website, happierabroad.com, and I agree with everything you write. You are my hero! You have spoken truths that many men do not understand. You have broken ground that many men have not........ You are an inspiration!"

“I enjoy your writing and you are one of the most inspiring dudes around. Main thing is you don't give a shit what other people (especially white) say about you - highly unusual, unfortunately, for any race of people, Chinese especially. So your stuff is absolutely awesome.”

“No B.S., you're a big, big inspiration and i'm glad to hear you're doing good in Angeles City. Sounds like heaven to me.”

“The stuff you recommend, winston, has always managed to utterly CHANGE MY LIFE. thank you for being an inspiration. you will never know how much it means to me!!!”

- Close female friend in Southern California

“You are a hero for the underdog, proving that with balls and determination you can find fun, sex, love, and happiness…..”

I'm currently 17 years old and like you I am a Chinese American. I love the ebooks you have online and I really enjoy hearing about your success with white women abroad. I have a research paper on "my hero" and I choose to do my report on you and your success.”

“YOU ARE MY HERO TOO. Here I am with clinical depression feeling like I'm wasting my year after college and its honestly giving me hope browsing your photo collages and seeing that happiness is definitely possible, no matter who you are.”

- Asian American female Stanford graduate

“You are a champ. Most of us, even if we did find the holy grail would either be too selfish or more likely shy and embarrassed to ever come out publicly the way you have. Your generosity of spirit is truly amazing.”

“This guy is a legend!”

(Reference to me at http://www.freewebspace.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2189614)

“Listen, you’re the man!”

"You are AWESOME!"

“You are the BEST VOICE out there for those who don’t fit in America.”

“Your ebook was refreshing. I thought I was the only one who thought this way about American social climate.”

“Your website truly is a treasure! It's making me more self-aware in areas that I may have been slipping into "typical American mode" in, and is opening my mind even more.”

“I cannot express in words how impressed I am by your work and how accurate and true you are to yourself. I have lived in the US for the 13 years now, and I can't but agree with every single word you wrote……. Congratulations again on a job well done!!!!!”

“It took me a while to realize that there was a chasm of difference between the media picture of America and real life, but when the truth hit home, I felt very disappointed and empty. I even had a lapse of self-condemnation as I thought the problem was in me. I have gotten over it now and can see clearly. Your writing puts all the pieces of the puzzle together very well.”

- From a Russian immigrant

“I am from Athens, Greece. I came across your web site while googling trying to find web sites with articles about the differences between Europeans and Americans. I am writing an essay for one of my courses at college and I needed that kind of info. I have to admit that I was hooked up by your articles. Many of the situations that you describe were like a revelation to me.”

“Sir, first off, let me tell you in one word what I thought of your e-book...OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!! I'm currently reading it right now and it is great!!!”

“I have been reading the stories and adventures of Winston, and like the rest of you I'M IMPRESSED!!! ….. I am striking out on a BOLD and NEW path for my life such as Winston did. Though some of his writings were embrassing to say the least, I love how he persevered and finally got the girl of his dreams. WAY TO GO WINSTON..... “

(From my forum http://www.happierabroad.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=444)

“Winston, as I was watching your adventures, I was thinking what a lucky person you are to have experienced so many things - regardless if they were positive or negative. You did this on your own, and you should be proud of yourself. Most of your enemies simply sit and write behind a computer, but you have lived it - which means a lot more. Think of how many men in the US will never have the chance to do what you have done. I guess what I admire most about you is that you been willing to share your experiences with the rest of the world to enjoy, and I am happy to have come across your site 3 years ago…“

“Winston keep up the good work. I really feel you are one of the more intelligent and insightful individuals out there on the internet. I’m sure there are lots of American men of all backgrounds who agree with your articles. Ignore the naysayers and bitter Americans out there who want to bring you down to their level. Be yourself and be happy with life. Life is short and sometimes that’s all we can do is just be.”
