A lot people assume that I'm Chinese, Japanese and Korean. funny part is that when i go to china town, japanese town and korean town, they talk to me with there language and weird part is that i know how to respond their greeting. haha

All the time! I've been mistaken for being Korean, Chinese or Japanese ever since I can remember! There's this one instance where an older Filipino stranger asked me for directions in Tagalog which made me really happy COZ FINALLY SOMEONE GOT IT RIGHT, but then he squinted his eyes and quickly apologized and said "Oh sorry I thought you were Filipino." Talk about Pansamantalang Kaligayahan!

Yeah, I've been mistaken or Native American, Hawaiian, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Japanese, Thai, and other ethnicities. Even other Filipinos can't often pin point what I am.
