How big is the Asian-American community in the Houston area?
Any Hawaiian (folks from Hawaii, not actually Hawaiian blood) communities?

I've heard Sugarland has a high Asian population.

So named because most of the original business owners were/are Chinese.

Houston's not like I hear New York is, where there's a part of town almost set aside for just one nationality. There are lots of people from every background and country mingled in all over the place here, especially in Sugar Land. I have more English and Australian friends than US these days. I just think everyone comes to Sugar Land for the great schools.

How on earth did you pick Texas coming from Hawaii?? I hope I'm not being too forward by asking.

I was referring to your " air quotes " around "Chinatown".

Ah, I see... a "real" "Chinatown" instead of our strip mall version? Gotcha.
