I guess it depends on what you grew up eating, most of my cousins in the PI are short-ish, while my cousins in the US are all tall-ish. Rice dosent promote growth as much as wheat and so northern Chinese are taller then southern Chinese. Then again... India is a major rice eating nation and they arent short, but possibly shorter then their overseas kin, so dont quote me on that biggrin.gif . Me.. i cant stand cooking a new batch of rice every day, if i have money i just go to Mcdonald's and kill a #4 with coke.

I'm 5'3", and I'm taller than my mom, sister, lola, and all my titas. Most of my male relatives are 5'6"-5'8."

One of my cousins is the shortest in our family. She's only 4'7 3/4." Emphasis on the three-quarters. embarassedlaugh.gif2

im 5'5". not complaining.. hehe i noticed most of the people who were born the same year(1985) as i am are shorter compared to those who were born afterwards (esp 1986-1988). maybe it had something to do with the milk. haha remember, it was Marcos' time then shifted to Aquino by 1986.

He must be Kampuchean since he talks like he thinks he's some thug from Socal. lets give him a break though.. he must be getting sick of getting beat by rival Filipinos in the area. Every non asian ive known has always said Filipinos are the best looking asians out there, they range from pale white to brown so theres plenty to choose from.. not the same old dull look here and there. Mexicans say they like the soft asian touch to spanish features, whites like the "exotic" Hawaiian-like skin tone. Even the native tribal malay types range from flat nosed and curly hair to strait nose, square heads and round eyes. Which is why i find it hard to even consider all malays mongoloid as they also exibit caucasoid and even australoid and negroid features(ie we're never steriotyped as having tiny penises, unless you're of chinese decent[little pecker Fil-Am/e-jay/3jay/Salamatpo]. If you've ever been to Ankor Watt and see the face scultures, the Khmers who built the temples are a mix of mongoloid and black. If you throw in some caucasian, that is basically what a malay is.

Filipino men dont suffer from the same steriotype socalled g__ks receive, we're actually manly.. grow facial and body hair and arent naturally weak.

So not Filipino, not northeast asian.. but he's a civic rider.. MUST be either Kampu, Vietnamese or Lao.
