So I am Vietnamese. I'm pure Vietnamese (my parents were both born in Vietnam and moved to America as teenagers).
But people will try to guess what possible type of Asian I am, and they will never guess I'm Vietnamese, like I'll tell them after a while and then a couple months later they forget.
My best friend is Chinese and so when ever I go over her house her parent somehow think I'm Chinese like them and start specking mandarin to me...!
But I must confess I look nothing like my family... It's weird... My sister looks like combination of my parents and I manage to look like the exact opposite of her... My family are very Vietnamese looking. (Typical viet: tanner skin, chinky, charcoal black hair, very flat nose, with large nostrils, and sharper features)
So have you people ever encounter this problem?

It happens to me almost everyday.Every single day.I am Indian and most people think I am Latina or East Asian.Just because I don't look like this link they assume I am not Indian.People are being rude.I live in Malaysia and most of the time Malay people can't stop claiming that I am Malay link I don't think I look like them at all.So that totally offends me.1
