It's a little annoying because us East Asians can tell the different nationalities apart just by looking, usually (at least Japanese are really good at it, you can't get away with anything - we can pick out people of other descent as well ). And then when I go to the U.S. everyone's all, 'Oh, you've got such great hair! (My hair's down to about my knees.) I guess traditional Chinese really do keep their hair long!' or something like that.

Come on, is China the only country in East Asia?


omg so true. Im korean and i find it easy enough to tell between the eastern asian countries. If u were to ask me to describe it i wouldnt be able to though lol Its kinda like tellin bristish ppl from spanish and german ppl.. they have their differences.

Yea its kinda annoying sometimes to be described as the 'Chinese guy'. Fair enough its their ignorance thats causing it but its annoying lol.

Well I think it's the worst when your parents compare you to other people!!!! You know more better people than you!!!!


I know, and she compares me to a friggen genius! Not everyone is naturally smart, not everyone is good at studying -_- sigh


Wow it reminds me of my mother... She always keeping me down that's why in grade 5 I didn't join the declamation contest.....
My classmates were expecting me to join......
How did your mother keep you down?


^ my story.. forgot to quote you to let you know..


Wow, that's not nice of your mother! Mother should be supporting the family! Maybe she is selfish like my mother! You wanna know why?
I was a girl scout before and I have the most courteous award, she just threw it as garbage and I was very down! Everything I achieve, my mother never and will not appreciate what I will do right! Our mothers are very lousy one, don't you think?


yeah...I don't actually love my mum..She's hasnt really supported me throughout life..Also when I want to be known in her presences, she ignores me.. =| I'll say one thing though, I hope I wont be as bad as her, I'll love my children and always be ther for them, clap for every achievement and show how much i would love my children ^^


Yes! I'll do the same, too! I'll be more like my dad! Supportive and caring for his family! I love him more than my mom even though i still love her as my mom..... Nice to meet you!!!!

I don't get offended because my family name is misleading, but it does get annoying when the move onto the next country and they go through practically all of East Asia and still don't get it. Then I tell them and they don't even know where it is -_-; (Btw I'm Cambodian, which isn't too hard thanks to Angelina Jolie and her kid)


im cambodian too well part cambodian but i dont get offended, cuz people usually ask me whether im a half cast, and when i say no im not they say i look it ( im not a half cast im a quarter cast - whatever my mums a half cast LOL )



EDIT - honestly WHO CARES if you are mistaken for a 'chinese' person or your assumed 2 be from china. just say your not and GET OVER IT. we're all asian so whatever and yeah sure there are people who are ignorant. oh wells? build a bridge and get over it the world doesnt care whether or not your 'CHINESE FROM CHINA'

lol well u shoulda told us earlier u were chinese lol. I never said i got angry, just irritated.
Especially when people just immediately think im chinese just cause im from eastern asia.

Im just proud to be Korean and i like it that way. Is it a problem for me to do that?

Im not sure ud understand since u dont live in Europe.. but its kinda like saying a british person is french or german. Its not a severe mistake but its just not preferred.

Yea, I hate when my friends go get their nails done and they turn and look me with what are they saying look. Not every Asian person speaks the same language. I especially hate when some people ask where my dad is from I tell them and they are like oh so your Hawaiian or from Guam. I just got fed up and tell them" Yes I am from where ever the hell you think I am from."
Posted 1/3/08
Nope i havent gotten angry by that yet. If they do say it tho ill just say something equal back to them. Like how brown people are all the same xD.
