3. Or they simply say:
4. You knew what durian smelled like before it was cool.
Uhhh, scratch that. Durian will NEVER be cool. #SmellsLikeAss
5. You can’t even trust your own people.
6. Sure, veganism is not even a concept in some Asian cultures, but you still have hope for the future.

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.

13. You’re pretty much the only Asian you know who ISN’T obsessed with Korean BBQ.
14. Unless, of course, it’s made with Gardein meat alternatives.

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