Seriously tho…


4. You knew what durian smelled like before it was cool.

8. Meeting another vegan Asian makes you feel like:



9. Rice to you is what water is to every species on this damn planet.

10. Happiness is discovering a vegetarian dish at an Asian restaurant that DOESN’T contain fish sauce.



11. Your folks may not fully comprehend your love for companion animals.

13. You’re pretty much the only Asian you know who ISN’T obsessed with Korean BBQ.

16. It doesn’t matter, though, because you’re ALWAYS happy to be a voice for the animals in your community! <3
