I read that ethnic minorities are the majority in your province, esp from Karen tribe. Are you ethnic Thai or from one of the minorities?

I was born in Australia but my parents were born in Cambodia, though they are of Chinese descent and not Cambodian.

Do they maintain any Chinese customs or are they fully Khmer culturally? For instance Theravada vs Mahayana Buddhism?

There are certain employers/jobs that require a U.S Citizen, so you might really want to seriously consider getting it done...you might see a job that you like down the road, but as a result of your current status, you will be disqualified right away.

I'm a permanent resident of the United States, basically the same civic liberties except I cant vote. I could just change that though, if I ever do plan on applying for citizenship. The United States is realistically all I know, I've lived here for 20 of my 22 years of life starting before I even turned 1 year of age.

My parents have been between the United States & overseas all their life. My father was actually born and raised in the New York/New Jersey area, while my mother was born in India but became a citizen before I was born. My father was on a IT project in Singapore when I was born, I was out of the country long before I turned 1 and in the United States where I've grown up all my life (with 2 years in India: age 3 to 5).

At the present moment my plan is to retire in the western United States (in either Denver, Tucson, Seattle, or San Diego any of these would be ideal) but I am indeed looking to living overseas between age 35-45 but will eventually come back to the United States.

I was born and raised in Hong Kong where I still live today. I'm Eurasian; my father is part English, part Thai born in Bangkok and my mother Filipino (with some ancestral Chinese blood) from the Bicol region in the Philippines.

As for nationality, I have dual citizenship with the UK and the Philippines both acquired by descent.
