I don't know what I am anymore!
According to our family tree, my family was from Guangtong 5 or 6 generations ago (to Taiwan). Both of my parents were born and raised in Japan during their early childhood. (So technically they should be Japanese, right? ) I was born in Taiwan and I came to the U.S. when I was a teenager. I have live in the U.S. now twice as long as I have lived in Taiwan. I have dual citizenships. So I don't know what I am...Can I just call myself an Earthling?

There is absolutely no doubt that I am TAIWANESE (not chinese) and proud of it. I am currently in UK reading for a degree, but will return to TAIWAN as soon as I am done. Being home away from home, I only have my SR-001 with me now but are picking up classical cd's here when I see 'em cheap and good (most often on Ebay though, let's face it). Yay!

I was born in Hong Kong. My father is Taiwanese, my mother is from Hong Kong/China. I moved to Canada when I was 3, been back to Hong Kong and it's really not my thing. Stayed in Taiwan for a few months last year and absolutely loved it.

I could even call myself Taiwanese but that's almost a lie =)

Talk to Elphas. He's told me about a few places in Taiwan.

Here's 2 sites he sent me.

Hifi
Pincha

I'm from Taiwan, but right now I'm in college in the States. I will be back over summer for a month, though.

And yes, visiting Hifi is practically a must every time I go up to Taipei (I don't actually live there.)

well my mum is taiwanese and i've lived there(taipei) for a few years. i tell ppl i'm taiwanese (just like ppl call them selves shanghaiese, hongkies etc...) but there is no doubt in my mind taiwan is apart of the greater china if thats what ur question is implying. the only difference is we're governed by a different political party. so if u want to generalize, we are all chinese.

And there's no doubt that America is part of the British Empire. The only difference is that we're governed by different political entities. So if you want to generalize, we are all British! And our neighbor Canadians should also be subjected by this rule.

So are Koreans Chinese too? Since they are connected to China by land. Vietnamese? Russians?

your picking bones out of my post and twisting them into some straw man argument which doesn’t even make sense. maybe you forgot the part about American been independent? you can point me the part in world history when Taiwan announce their independence and become a sovereign state. learn your basic world history kiddo, no point banging your head against solid facts.

this is a headphone forum so i wont post anymore about this issue. i accept my heritage, culture with pride and embrace my roots. but that’s just me. i couldn’t care less what you wanna call your self.
