lol...I'm a hybrid and proud! woo hoo
I was wondering if the hybrid category would fit my background.
I'm Quarter Chinese, Quarter Jamaican and half Irish and born in England. But most of my friends are Asian and I have a girlfriend who is from China for the last two years so would say I am a mix of Asian / Western in cultural background.
Work wise I am relocating to HK in August to work for a tier one bank. I feel my background helps me fit into both Asian and Western working cultures e.g. asian and western having worked with China, HK, TKY, UK and US. This is actually one reason why the bank employed me cos I've got to do some globetrotting as part of the job.
Suggestions as to which category I fit into are welcome!!
I must say Chrome makes some astute observations about HK even though it may be stereo typical in nature and not inclusive enough to cover the whole spectrum.
I would love to read how he segments the GeoExpats -
Of course, it is not easy to find a system to fit 100% of the people. So perhaps it is time to add a category called "Unclassified/Others".Originally Posted by jdawson:

Do you know what Tiger Woods call himself? Cablinasian, a portmanteau of Caucasian, Black, American-Indian, and Asian.Originally Posted by jdawson:
I don't know what is the problem with the analysis. There's freedom of speech?!Originally Posted by donabel_beltran:

I would love to move somewhere completely different and alien to the environment which I am used to but just don't have the adventure spirit to just pack up and get on a plane. You are cool
