Habib, you’re on a roll here, aren’t you!

  • Confucian virtues
  • Industry
  • Most people I hanged out with at high school. And undergrad.
  • Spicy food
  • East Asians, Not South Asians; I’m from Australia, not the UK
  • East Asians, Not West Asians. Does anyone even say “West Asians”?
  • East Asians, Not North Asians. People definitely don’t call Siberians North Asians.
  • East Asians, Not Central Asians. Huh. It really is all about extended Sinosphere, isn’t it.
  • South East Asians. Kinda sorta extended Sinosphere.
  • My neighbours’ parents, who yell too loud in Chinese at their kid.
  • My urbane Taiwanese psychologist friend, and his darling kids.
  • Lots of cultures with venerable history, that I know too little about.
