    Recently, I saw a friend that I haven't seen in a long time, after she left school. And I remember the rumours that people would say about her light skin. Bleaching, drugs. But what I do know is her dads dark and her mums light. But all her siblings are either dark or the typical brown and they look Asian. But she looks like a white girl. Her face is a white persons face.
    Because skin colour and ethnicity aren't directly related. Natural variation and other factors (sunlight exposure for example) can change it.

    For the record, I'm mixed (half Singaporean, half European) and I just look like a tanned white person.

    There are caucasians in Asia. I've been asked if I'm Iranian or Pakistani. I'm Portuguese XD

    Lol. I'm a Bangladeshi and most people think I'm Pakistani. It's to do with genes I feel in most cases. Environmental factors and other things do in some cases play a role in making people look different from where they belong. Natural variation as well plays a role too. There's a lot of diversity amongst people in different parts of the world and not only in Asia.
    I have seen people who don't possess the "typical" features they are supposed to possess coming from different countries.

    Aye
    that was a guess but i'm not surprised. some of the romanians i've met look asian but they still look distinctively romanian.

    maybe it's because of mixing with the turks and romas.

    'Are you sure you're Pakistani? You look too light skinned to be one.'
    I bet no one actually says that
    There are many Pakistanis who are very light skinned
