I can't believe how many times I've been asked, "Are you Korean? Jap? Chinese?"

COMON ITS NOT THAT HARD

This chart will teach you how to tell us apart:

thanks, but I got a wife, you have to look out for colon Dee though...

so you're not chinese then... as a true Taiwanese person you should not allow people to refer to you as Chinese.

Not all Taiwanese care very much. Ethnically we're Han Chinese. Culturally we're Taiwanese.

I'd wager a guess that this picture was drawn by someone who is Chinese.

My cheat sheet when you don't know their last name:

Koreans: wider faces with prominent cheek bones, more "asian" eyes
Japanese: bad teeth, dyed hair and lots of make up, bigger eyes
Chinese: safest to assume given the Lower Mainland's demographics, if they don't fall into the two categories above they're likely Chinese

So, the image you posted tells us we can identify different asians by the colour of lipstick they wear and how they do their eyeliner. Now I'll only have to learn about makeup to be able to put this into action.

I heard that UMADBRO might actually be a chick, hiding her sex online so as to not be bothered.

Plus, I think she's Thai.

And I wait until I hear a name.

Lin, Hoang, Yeung, Yuen = Chinese
Park, Han, Kim = Korean
Japanese names are obvious, all Vietnamese people in the history of the country seem to be named Nguyen.

My sister was adopted from China, and it's difficult to tell that she's a different race than my South Korean friends.
