I’ve now been told by various Vietnamese people that I look Vietnamese, Cambodian, or even Thai. Cambodians think I might be Cambodian, Vietnamese, Thai, Korean or Chinese. Thai people have asked if I’m Vietnamese, Cambodian or Chinese.
Either way, locals end up chatting to me in their language before realising I’m just some bogany foreigner. Then they laugh.
Karina got that too when we went to Southeast Asia – someone even asked my grandfather if she was our maid.
Haha, oh no that’s terrible! Today a woman kept speaking to me in Viet, she even dragged me to the back of the restaurant and tried to make me play a card game with her friends.
