If you think about it, the only reason anyone really cares what kind of Asian someone is, is because Asians are so different from eachother.

Asians have -really- pale skin? I've never once seen a pale skinned asian. Their skin is darker than ours... (I'm Irish/German) I'm sure that some of them might be pale, but thats against the ethos...

well i guess it can be catergorized into these (BEFORE any plastic surgery): but not really that accurate
Japanese =bad teeth, smaller eyes than the chinese
Chinese/Taiwanese=Bigger eyes
Korea=Really really small eyes , some with bad teeth
Phillp, Malay , Viet or areas around it = as mentioned above, darker skin, big eyes

People at school always ask me "Are you Japanese?Chinese?Are you Vietnamese?" The answer is always "No.I'm from Laos."
Does this explain anything?

yea, me too! people at my school always ask me, "Are you japanese? Are you korean? Chinese? then what?"

You can't really.

One thing I have noticed though, Filipino people tend to be a bit darker, with different eyes.

Other than that, you seriously can't tell.

Skin color.
White-ish is usually korean, japanese, or chinese
Yellow/light tannish: vietnemese, combodian
Dark tannish: fililpino, thai

Sometimes it's just instinct.

I dunno. When I tell people I'm vietnamese, they always say to me, "You look more chinese because you're whiter." I was like WTF? People can look like anyone. Its based on genetics.
