Filipino FeaturesNo, I'm not those stereotype Asians you think of. I do not have small eyes or and very white skin. Instead, I have fair complexion and some kind of Malaysian features. My nose is a bit flat, unlike European and American noses. And one thing;s for sure. I have a small chest. One thing different with my looks is my hair and my height. My hair is unusually brown unlike the others, which are black. Probably because of my great great great grandfather is Spanish (she met my grandma during WWI when the Spaniards invaded the Philippines) and his genes were still carried up to my generation. I'm 5'8 of height, which is really unusual for an asian girl. The common height in the Philippines is 5 - 5'5. I'm sorta a giant here.
In the west, it's a common idea that Asians are geniuses and masters of overdoing things. Yet, It's really awkward that I'm not good at anything.
