why the hell do oriental faces tends to be flatter than europeans?!!! and orientals tend to be shortet too! is it coz orientals typical diet have hardly any dairy products in it compared to the europeans?!


Hmm about the faces... I don't know. I don't think its an unattractive thing though. I wish my nose was flatter .

And orientals aren't all shorter than Europeans... northern orientals are quite tall in general.

I've been mistaken for German, French, Dutch & some other European countries (in other countries, not England) , because Im tall, pale and blonde.

i had a teacher back in high school, who asked me twice if I am japanese coz she said i looked like one, i used to speak a few japanese phrases, and my last name sounds japanese. i just had to simply reply to her "No ma'am. Filipino people are different from Japanese ones. My last name sounds more like a latin word coz it means something like feet."

my classmates were like and ... some were ...

I'm Malay and I have been mistaken as a Filipino, Indonesian...and an old man thought I'm Chinese and he started speaking Chinese to me and I was like o.O errr..then he looked at me for an answer and it took him a while to realise that I'm actually Malay.

The most insulting thing that happened to me was someone actually thought I'm a foreign maid working in a house wtf.

some idiot in a shop last week mistook my gorgeous chinese singaporean boyfriend for a "CHINKY GIMP"

which is ironic, because i had mistaken this individual for a member of the human race

I'm Mexican and Finnish and have been mistaken for Italian before.
A coworker of mine thought I was Filipino.
And a friend of mine from Thailand thought I was of Middle Eastern race.
