    Hi Wong ( or should I call you Yau? )

    Nice sculpting with the Sharps rifle, what scale is it?

  4. y_wong New Member

    Hey Roc and Vince, glad you like it.

    It's for my 120mm Berdan Sharpshooter which I am currently sculpting. My friends call me Wong (my surname).

    regards :)

    In Singapore, do people add the "ah" in front of the surname in addressing people? I came from Hong Kong, and they usually do so, like "Ah Wong", " Ah Wai"........and "Ah Quang".....:)))

    Dear Vince,

    Yes they do, especially among close friends.

    regards :)

    Dear Nancy,

    Thanks for the complement and I'm glad that you find it enjoyable. I try to update it once a month.

    Yesterday I was just wondering how come there are so few ladies in this forum or hobby and suddenly you appear. Talk about coincidence.

    regards :)

    Hah, great! You can call me "Ah Wai":)))) My last name is Wai, you know, the same as that Wai Siu Bo.

    Dear Ah Wai,

    Yes, coincidentally my wife and kids are reading Louis Cha's novels ( condor hero and dragon saber respectively) right now.

    Cheers and a happy week ahead to you. :lol:
