    As an Asian woman i would never date outside my

    race. I want my children to look like me. I am my ancestors. I will be a part of my decendants. Thousands of years of generations worth of recessive genetics would all be lost in one generation if race mixing occurred.

    Why are the East Asian work cultures

    so focused on results and efficiency? Everything must be accounted for in a quantifiable number. If you cannot quantify it, it is as good as not having done it. Maybe quantifying things makes it easier to make comparisons. And comparisons drive competition. And competition makes...

    Most people mistakenly thought

    that I am Chinese, once I meet Chinese randomly they gonna speak Chinese. Some thought I am Thailandese or Philippines, but am not. I bet people from South East Asia, most of them look the same, slightly a bit difference. doesn't matter to me as long as I look truly Asian =D
