    I never even heard of Goldlion until moving to SG.

    Acer? It's not high-end.

    Creative yes, but only for their soundblaster cards. Nowadays no, they're not known as a luxury brand.

    That's just colonial mentality. US universities really aren't that good. I would personally respect a graduate of the University of Tokyo more than a US college frat boy.

    Your problem is that you're seeing things from an "asian colonial mentality" perspective. You immediately have the presumption that the best brands, schools, cars, etc, are from ang moh countries.

    If you actually lived in those ang moh countries, you'd have a different perspective. Lexus is greatly admired in the US, and asian fashion, cosmetics, food and electronics are in demand especially in europe. Mercedes? Audi? They're just taxis in germany. BMW? Nice, but everyone has one. Mitsubishi Evolution? Subaru Impreza? Now you're talking desirable!!

    If you play hi-fi, you must have heard of Ongaku amplifiers. They use silver for the conductors inside. Any ang-moh hi-fi buff will drool over one of these things.

    u got no idea how much italians love us... esp when we have a town named after their important ingredient in Pizza...

    i think pasta chefs should come to Singapore for training, since we are the only country which have a 'state' named Tomato...

    Wow, I am amazed of your insight to western, American and European, pop cultures, their likes and dislike. Your understanding of the US post secondary school system is also eye popping.

    You beat me to it! Kondo amps- the Ongaku having the honour of being the most expensive tube amp ($120,000USD) ever made.

    Accuphase, AirTight amps also come to mind.
