LMFAO. So we're making up stories now?

What gives it away is the nose. I'm pretty sure Alodia has had a nose job. Ashley has a very distinct Africana Pinay nose.

actually the most EA looking mix I have seen are northern luzon or visayan mixed with korean

half korean half visayan/ northern luzon types






smaller eyes, flat face maybe is the reason why
chinese tend to have bigger eyes then both japanese and korean

In San Francisco there are a lot of South East "Asians" (Filipino, Viet, Burmese, Laotian, etc). These South East "Asians" can easily pass for brown Mexicano or Negrito.

Anyways, I don't doubt you could have mistaken him for Negrito. A lot of Japanese are into the whole African culture wanting to press their hair into a Filipino afro puff and put brown tan on to resemble Filipinos. BROW IS BEAUTIFUL!
LOL come to think of it, the Japanese dude I met had a natural curly hair, which I find amusing. :P

He obtained his deep tan from his tennis coaching days (he worked as a tennis coach in his school as part time).

Ejay 1 -

There are Chinese of Vietnamese nationality. I've met NATIVE Viets though and they look completely completely different. I met a Vietnamese man whose dad was some sort of native tribal leader in Vietnam. They could both pass for brown Negrito Hispanics, or Filipinos (as my dad said).





Wow, the woman on the left looks like a Pinay! [Btw, I believe these are Hmong]



This native Pinoy can pass for many things. He looks very Hispanic/black.
