      My mother is from Greece and my father is from Canada of Jewish/Eastern European decent. I was born in the US, but also lived in Canada for a long period of time. I have both US and Canadian citizenships, but consider myself to be American.

        I'm half Japanese(Okinawan) and my other half is English, German, and Dutch. My mother was Okinawan and my dad's American, I was born on Okinawa but moved to the US when I was very young and have lived here since.

          Mum and Dad are INdian
          Mum is from Kerala, but lived in Rajastan and Tamil Nadu. Dad is from Tamil Nadu, but was born in Kerala, and lived in Karnataka.

          I was chucked out in Kerala, INdia.
          NOw however, I'm an american citizen.

          So I am Kerala-Tamil Nadu-Rajastan-Karnataka. It comes down to Indian!

          Oh....all those places like Karnataka...Kerala...they're all INdian states.

                No! Don't confuse Tamilians with the Tamil tigers.

                Tamilians are people from Tamil Nadu in Southern India. Tamil Tigers are rebels in Sri Lanks. Two totally diff. things.

                My mom is an Indian, dad an Indian, so therefore by default I am also an Indian.

                      No I was born in India, lived in India for 15 years. I've been in HK for only 8-9 months.

                      As for the british accent, its easy to imitate , but my real accent is Indian.

                          Well, I'm 100% Portuguese so that would make drop dead gorgeous.
