I consider Indians Asians too...India shares more in common with the Far East than many think. Spirituality, Buddhism came out of the Hindu tradition, also Taoism has a similar worldview to Hinduism and 'Eastern thought', rice, spices, in South-East Asia there is Indian influenced architecture, the Brahmic alphabet.

many workers on work visas from SE Asia and S Asia are working in other richer asian countries. Not that much kind of international migrant workers from China in other asian countries.

Many people of Indian ancestry live in Malaysia and Singapore for generations, Chinese in every SE Asian country. Many people of S Asian ancestry live in Hong Kong for generations. Short to mid-term Japanese & Koreans live in other asian countries without the intend to settle overseas permanently.

I heard some English schools in Thailand hire Filipinos because it is cheaper to pay them than it is to pay Westerners to teach English to Thailand.

This Filipina chick's accent is not too extremely Pinay. She is an English teacher in Thailand.

^ She sounds kind of American. Yeah I don't mind it, though, and her English is much better than most non-native speakers I've heard. I mean she sounds native.
