    which to be honest is weird because I speak Cantonese all of my friends speak mandarin and I am taking mandarin in school which really sucks sometimes.

    You know how you get those questions like: "Hey

    are you Asian? or Chinese?" or "Are you Japanese or Asian?" or "Asian and Chinese are different things!" from someone who has no clue about cultures. Yeah I get that 9000 times a day. IT DRIVES ME CRAZY! Oh and those times where people talk to you, like "Do you miss your real...

    Ok, ok, I'm really Israeli. But that's in Asia, isn't it? So I always call myself Asian. Besides which, I fit all the Asian stereotypes - I love technology, I'm smart, I'm a nerd, and I have high expectations for my life. So why the hell not. ~M~

    Lol, yh, I am an Asian

    and I'm proud. I'm from Bangladesh as well, but my English is better than my Bengali considering I came to the UK when I was 3. I also fit into some of the asian stereotypes. E.g I am a nerd, I am shy, my parents are strict and have high expectations, Asians usually become...

    benefits being an asian 1.

    We don’t need much sunscreen. My fairer mates get burnt standing in front of the microwave….even when it’s not turned on. I just become a nice consistent brown colour in the sun. Saving money on sunscreen allows me to buy more manga! 2. We have very minimal body hair, both...
