For many years I knew two Wongs. There is an old slightly racist Australian(?) joke that I won't repeat but odd occasion I saw the two Wongs together, it made me think of the joke. If I saw one Wong alone, and you have to be of a certain age, I would think of an old credit card ad. Wait, I'll try You Tube. Yes, here it is. It was actually travellers cheques, not a credit card.
Now I know four Wongs, two at work, occasional commenter and transport enthusiast Marcus and a personal friend whose family name I only just discovered. I can only recall two Smiths and I don't know either well.
Does this say something about the changing face of Australia, or is it just my world?
In an co-incidence almost too unbelievable to be true, when I just checked Marcus' blog address for the link, he had just written about his name and even used the same credit card clip. It seems there were difficulties in Australian for Wongs when that ad was on air.
