interesting how these days, and increasingly so i might add, ppl tink i’m not hokkien!
colleague just asked me if i were cantonese cos – i look so -. some others have asked if i were teochew, cos i have teochew ‘characteristics’, whatever that means!
so i’m wondering now which is better – to be recognised correctly as Chinese, or to lose my *ahem* exotic/eurasian/non-chinese blended looks.
i half suspect its largely due to skin colour.
pale pasty skin!
urgh. the dilemma.
