I was born in Vietnam and lived there until I was 5.
My dad is English, Irish, and Scottish. My mum is full Thai.
I moved to England and am still living there and I hope to move to Thailand when im older.
As I grew up people joked around about my race and found it funny, including my friends. Continue reading
My father is Thai Chinese and my mother is American.
Being raised half of my life in Thailand and the other half in the States has been great. Great life experience and knowledge.

Hey, I’m Claire :)
I can speak both English and Thai. My dad is English and my mum is Thai.
Born and raised in Thailand but soon going to the U.K. for university.
Just found out about ‘Hapa’. Didn’t even know the word a few days ago. There are loads of mixed-raced here in Thailand and I have grown up with loads of people similar to me. Everyone is used to ‘Hapas’ here in Thailand.

Hi, my nickname is Miyu, and I’m half Asian and half European.
My dad is half German half Polish and my mum is Thai, Laotian, Vietnamese and Chinese.

I grew up in Germany. But we also have houses in Thailand, where my mum’s family lives. Now I live in Texas, where my husband lives. Continue reading
I’m Dhabitha and I’m Chinese, Indian, Malay, Thai, and Portuguese.
My grandma on my mother’s side is Thai, Chinese and Portuguese, but she was adopted and raised by a Malay family because of the Japanese occupation. My grandfather is Indian. My father is Javanese-Sarawak.
When I lived in Malaysia I was enrolled in an international school. I fit in because almost everyone was an expat, and I had a lot of Hapa friends. But when I moved back to Singapore, it was a different experience. Most people are either Malay, Chinese or Indian. It’s rare to find Hapas. Continue reading
