Ah yes, that’s what the Belgians thought
French Belgians and Swiss. Have you ever encountered someone who thought French was only spoken in France?
Luxembourgers are also free to answer! :)
Edit: I'm sorry if I didn't include the African countries or any non-euro country because I was asking Europeans. This is r/askeurope after all. However if you are a french speaker from non-europe feel free to answer too! :)

Half Belgian Half Malay
Hey everyone :) im 20F and i’d like to share a little bit about myself. My dad is Belgian and my mom is Malaysian, they met in Belgium when my mom went overseas to work. Fell in love, married and had 2 kids in Netherlands. After about 5 years my mom decided to go live back in Malaysia since she had her family there (both dad’s parents passed away and he was the only child) So, my dad finally agreed to migrate to Malaysia on one condition, that my mom would have one more child (me!)
Ever since then, my family migrated to Malaysia and I was born and raised here. Fast forward 20yrs, and Ive never even visited Belgium once. The only contact Ive had with anyone there are my dad’s extended family which I have not even met as well.
Just wondering if theres anyone here on Reddit I can talk to because I’m just so interested in that side of the world I never got to know. Its sad that Im half belgian by blood but I’ve never got to explore that side of me. :(
Would be lovely to make a friend h

Belgian Telecomdata activated (and shared) against Corona-virus
So, I promised an update on various Reddit threads on the Belgian telecomdata being shared with the government, to combat the Coronavirus (https://www.standaard.be/cnt/dmf20200320_04896707).
We (Ministry of Privacy) were in contact this morning with Philippe De Backer, who (next to Maggie De Block) is leading the 'Data Corona Taskforce'. In this taskforce, there are various stakeholders (some more troubling than others).
They assured us all data would be aggregated on postcode level, so individuals can't be identified. When asked if they want to pursue identification in a later stage, they insisted identification is a no-go for them. It is possible - if things get worse - they might want to activate 'districts' level instead of postcode-level.
Data is coming from all Belgian operators, 'anonimised', and then interpreted by Data Dahlberg Institute. They ensured us they are an European entity (which is still to be determined) and h

As a (Belgian) Kurd, I’d like to express my solidarity with Greece in the current refugee crisis and stand off with Turkey
Sorry if this is not allowed, but I found it important to add another perspective to the conflict.
Although my heart breaks seeing all those refugees and migrants, knowing that many of us were in a similar position many years ago. But Greece has to resist this. Why?
Turkey is weaponizing both refugees and migrants, literally one of the most disgusting things I’ve seen in my life. Bus companies linked to business men who are close to Erdogan were bringing thousands upon thousands of refugees/migrants to the Greek border for free. Arabic version of TRT (Turkish State broadcast) was spreading maps and video’s of how to get to Western Europe once you crossed Greece.
Blackmail. If Greece and the EU gives in right now, then be damn sure that Turkey will do this again in the future when they don’t get what they want. I’m already hopeful having seen how virtually every EU member has expressed its solidarity with Greece and took a firm stance against Turkish blackmail.

Hello Belgians! Question about dating a Belgian/Belgian rules or norms re dating
I am a non-Belgian 19 y/o F and last year on vacation (when I was 18) I met a 15 y/o Belgian guy. He turns 16 soon. We are really good friends and when on vacation I believe he dropped a number of hints that he liked me. Idk if these behaviours are signs of flirting or showing care for someone you are interested in.
I am due to visit him in the summer in Belgium.
I would really like to tell him that I like him perhaps as more than a friend and potentially suggest a relationship.But idk if he’d take it the wrong way. Where I am from, as long as you are both 16+, nobody is so concerned. I wouldn’t want to have a cradle snatching situation.
Would you be able to tell me if...
I should still pursue a potential relationship?
If it is wrong to be interested someone this age in Belgium?

Either way! thank you for reading, and if you have questions, ask ahead!

Opinion: both Belgians and Belgium would have been way better if e-commerce would have been better developed here.
Just heard on the news that the people are starting to feel the lack of products delivered typically by "non essential" stores.
When I first moved here I was surprised to see the primitive state e-commerce is in here.
If small business owners would have been a bit more entrepreneurial, things would have been easier for everyone.
I'm saying this while looking at Romania, for example, where the impact will be lessened by the fact that a lot of brick and mortar stores also have an online presence.

Legendary Belgian cycling journalist André Meganck passed away at 72 because of a cardiac arrest
>The VRT and the cycling world have to say goodbye to André Meganck, for years the right hand of the cycling commentators and the invisible hand behind the scenes of the race. Even after his retirement André Meganck remained passionate about the race. He died at the age of 72 from a cardiac arrest.
> In 2016, a few years after his retirement, André Meganck's memoirs were published. They were given the appropriate title: Master Fixer. André was more than just the "man next to Michel" in the commentary booth.
> André started his career at the VRT in 1975, initially as the driver of cycling commentator Fred De Bruyne, but it soon became clear that he had more to offer. In the following years, he would become the support of all cycling voices, from Mark Van Lombeek over Mark Uytterhoeven to Michel Wuyts.

Message from a Belgian Goy, in light of the events at Aalst Carnaval
To all the friends i've made in Israel, to all my Jewish American friends, and to all the Jews anywhere else in the world. I would like to whole-heartedly and sincerely apologise for the shameful, inconsiderate and villainous display the world ONCE AGAIN had to witness today. To me, there are no words to describe how ashamed and embarrased about my country I am right now. Please know that I am not alone in thinking this. Also I would like to apologise for the cowardly reaction from our politicians, too afraid of losing the vote of the dumb masses that think their right to ridicule is absolute. I am ashamed and disgusted. I have walked the path to Yad Vashem, I have seen what this type of displays can lead to. I have always been very vocal against any kind of subtle or obvious antisemitism and I will continue to do so with even more determination. Please know you have supporters here, and even if our politicians are cowards, we are not all like them and some of us do speak up.
