My dad is Malay and my Mum is a Nyonya (straits / southeast ssian chinese). If i were to tick a race in any UK GOV questionnaires do i choose chinese or 'other' Asian? How many generations of overseas chinese is still applicable to tick the chinese box?

Pick whatever you feel happiest with as not much of it is very logical or definable. 'Other' Asian includes those from Israel and Japan there's really nothing to pick if you're from South America.
