Boring background? You jest! You are interesting, my friend xD Everyone is interesting if we care to pick and prod a little bit.

Since you can speak Japanese, would you mind if I ask you to translate stuff or something? loljk
I don't mind, although I'm not that good at complicated conversations. xD

Born into a Peruvian family; that was my first introduction to Brazilian culture. XD

Brazil is a mixed country... As you know. Kinda that cultures are diverse, it's very cool. Too bad I don't like these things (well, I like it in a different way). Even so, is very interesting to live with this mixed culture, as I said before. BTW, I have never been to Bahia. xDDD
Portuguese is a very difficult language to learn. <- Seriously. Shiho Huit

Was reading this thread and realised I didn't post anything here o_o

Dad's side:

Grandpa: Most likely all chinese, coz he's from Shanghai and he looks chinese.
Grandma: Never seen her before.

Mom's side:

Grandpa: I dunno, he's a chinese living in Indonesia for all his life. Somehow I have relatives with very dark skin like a non-chinese indonesian though. Looks very chinese.
Grandma: Same as grandpa. She looks very chinese

So maybe I'm all chinese with just a tiiiny bit of Indonesian blood in me?

Probably Slavik-German mixture like many people in Czech rep. I don´t really care for that much. My great-grandmother was from what is now a part of Ukraine (it was Czechoslovakian until WW2) otherwise I am just Czech/German.

mother's side - french, german, cherokee (I think also russian iirc)

Thanks lol... I look racially ambiguous for the part. When I'm with Mexicans, they assume I'm Mexican. When I'm with my grandpa (my mother's step-father, who is Lebanese) at church, everyone there is of Arab descent and assumes I am. My own step-father is Japanese, and I've even had some people assume that I was half Japanese...my eye shape I guess is kind of almond-ish...o.O It's fun.

I don't think I could pass as Jamaican though. :/ That's pretty cool. There's a girl on Tumblr that I follow who is Jamaican, but living in the US. She's a very interesting person. One thing I noticed as she writes about her life is that family seems to be very conservative, however, is yours? I wondered if Jamaica was a bit conservative on the whole, or if that was her particular case. I hope it's not offensive for me to ask?

Lol, so you're essentially a Ninja!Bubuzuke. You can blend in with many kinds ;3

And you can ask absolutely anything you like, I wouldn't get offended for anything like that :)

And how to describe Jamaicans...lol, we are definitely a quirky bunch I'll tell you that =p
Yes, we can be ultra conservative, especially as it's a 'Catholic-nation', so many people are heavily into 'bible-thumping' and such. But that's more the older generation. Most Jamaicans my age and younger, though we've grown up with the same kind of Christian/Catholic morals drilled into us since birth, we're a LOT more 'free' and independent. We love our dancehall, and our reggae. We love to party and have fun all night long. We're very smart as our education system is incredibly stringent, and many Jamaicans excel in overseas studies and careers. And in the same breath we can use those smarts to either further a career in music, by knowing just how to promote and advertise ourselves, which is why Reggae is such a popular form of music all over the world. Or we can use our knowledge to become bio or civil engineers, and so much more.

My family in particular is a interesting mix of both =3

My aunt is as conservative as you can get, and she used to drive my cousin crazy when we were growing up, because she was always so strict with him, while my mother was very lenient and understanding.

So, I guess like with most all cultures, Jamaicans as a whole are a little bit of both~ =3

Interesting, I suppose that would be the case. :) The girl I follow is gay and a progressive feminist (generally anti-gender binary). Since she seems to be in constant battles with her family (and consequently occasionally rants about Jamaica lol), it made me wonder. Thanks for answering so thoroughly!

You're welcome! ^.^

Though now that you've expanded a bit on this girl's background I can tell you a bit more, and it's actually something that makes me sad about our Jamaican culture, though it's something that seems to be shared throughout most of the Caribbean countries. But Jamaicans and islanders in general are very homophobic. I mean...very. You think Americans can be homophobic? A Jamaican homophobe would put that person to shame...and not in a very good way at all ^^;

I completely sympathize with the girl, as I can just imagine what kind of battles she faces with her family.

100% Taiwanese, as in the Han Chinese that immigrated to Taiwan in the 17th Century...

...unless my mom's guess is correct and I have a very slight tinge of Dutch blood. When I go to Asia, half the people that meet me think one of my parents is Caucasian (doesn't help that I sound Caucasian when I speak Mandarin Chinese), and she suggested that maybe a Dutch trader who visited Taiwan 3 or 4 centuries ago got in the fun.

New information acquired from when I went back to my country last year:

I'm Indonesian with a drop of Chinese from my Mom's side of the family. There's some Dutch from my Mom's family as well, but it doesn't show in me...so it has to be a really tiny drop or something >>

My Dad's side...still a mystery x3
