A lot of people ask me where I'm from. I was born and raised in Indonesia to Filipino parents before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area when I was 15. But since I have no traceable hint of an Indonesian or Filipino accent, people assume I grew up in the United States. Sometimes I speak to them in a foreign accent just to mess with them.
I could speak when I was 1. When I was 2, I turned vegetarian because I didn't like the taste of meat. When I was 5, my parents tried to force me to eat meat by starving me for a week...until I lost most of my body weight and they felt so bad they told me I could eat whatever I wanted. These days, any time I tell someone I'm vegetarian, they don't believe me - "you don't look vegetarian".
What is a vegetarian supposed to look like?
