1. You are good at Maths and Science (Not me! :P )
2. You think that staying up late is the norm.
3. You have authoritarian parents.
4. Your parents encourage you to be hard working.
5. Your parents say that 'the more homework, the better!'
6. You call westerners 'gweilo'
7. You call Indians 'A cha'
8. You call black people 'Hat gwei'
9. You support this year's Olympic Games. (Not me! :P )
10. You call your elders by your relationship with them, not by their names.
11. You enjoy going to yum cha and eat dim sum.
12. You go to cha chan tengs.
13. You complain that the trip is 'too long' if it took 45 minutes or more.
14. You hate waiting too long for any public transport. You are used to the MTR arriving every 3 minutes.
15. You overeact to any crisis, such as flu outbreaks.
16. When you have exams coming, your parents will force you to stay at home and revise 24/7.
17. Your parents want you to get good grades at school. If not, prepare to be flamed!
18. People tell you that playing with your chopsticks is wrong.
19. Stabbing food with your chopsticks is also wrong.
20. Stabbing your chopsticks into your bowl of rice is considered taboo.
21. You want universal suffrage by 2012.
