It's interesting; Different cultures latch onto slightly unusual idiomatic expressions in their non-native languages. I see it a lot with middle easterners; They'll call everyone "my friend." At first it comes across fake and insincere, but the more you're exposed to it from that group the more you realize it's just a cultural thing and it indeed is entirely sincere and heartfelt.
