United Colours of Mooiness


January 23, 2006 12:01 AM

Alex and Paul – Australians of Romanian and Scottish descent respectively. Paul’s maternal grandmother is part-Dutch part-Indonesian. He’s mixed up alright 😉

Deeane – Australian Vietnamese (Chinese), Simon – Australian Chinese (parents from China), Lydia – Singaporean Chinese

Yvonne, my cousin- Australian Chinese (parents from Malaysia), Marella – Australian of Bosnian descent, Elaine – Australian Chinese (parents from HK)

Dima, Nishan, Ruvinda – Australians of Sri-Lankan descent, Edweena – Malaysian Indian (Sikh)

Simon – Australian of Italian descent, Reucas my cousin – Australian Chinese (parents from Malaysia). Bandmates.

Kim – Malaysian Chinese, Nadia – Singaporean Indian (edited 7:56am – she’s terribly confused, read her comment ;))

Amy – Australian (dunno of what descent, never asked! :)), and me – Malaysian Chinese.

I’ve also been fortunate enough to have worked with a diverse group of ppl including the Irish, the English and the Scottish, as well as an Australian-Croatian, a Chinese (China), an Australian-Filipino, Australians of Greek and Italian descent, a Bangladeshi, Indians, Japanese and of course Australians of Anglo-Saxon descent.

To me, ppl who close off their minds towards other cultures because of prejudice only disadvantage themselves.

One human race. One planet.

    If you were to get married, I guess it will have to be held in the UN head quarter…

    I always thought I’m 100% Chinese until recently my uncles told me that we have Persian blood somewhere along the line.

    That makes me a terrorist… hahahha…

    True on the “difference in the recipe”. Even if I have that sikit mat-salleh nyer part, my genes are predominantly Malay. Lucky most of the times they think I’m Chinese.

    Maybe in pictures, I don’t look very cheena. But, whenever I book for a cab, they thought the name “Shikin” is chinese and once I board the vehicle, they’d speak Mandarin to me.

    “Xiao chi-eh, ni chi na li?”

    Like that eh, the hanyu pinyin? Wa tak tahu spell. Hehehe…

    Plenty of times when I’m out with my mum, they either think she’s a Chinese Muslim (cos she’s very fair) or I’m a eurasian. Once my dietician thought my dad was a Middle Eastern man.

    Hahahahaha! Uwek!

    Nair mind, I shall wait for the results from my NG Genographic test.

    mlm: deep down inside we all want the same thing as humans, if only more ppl can see past the skin and face.

    michael: yeah lah, think how boring food would be without spices and colour? 😉
