27.
Sometime I wake up and I ask myself in a panic "Am I 28!?!" x() . And then I realise that Im not quite that near the big three-oh yet.
Definitely not looking forward to my 30th.

You are a kid. I have a son older than you.

And how would a young person understand that reference? The fact that you know it means you are too old.

I think westerners find it very difficult to judge the age of the chinese.
I worked with a fresh PhD graduate who was chinese (so of course I assumed he was 25 or so). Turned out he was 45!
