Hi I’m Sylvia and I’m a 3rd generation Malaysian Indian.
My dad is Malaysian Indian and my mother’s family (I thought) was ethnic Indian from Canada.
Growing up I always imagined myself as being Hapa but brushed them aside as thoughts of a disillusioned teenager.
To my surprise, shock and amazement my mum’s sister who lives in Canada did a DNA test a couple of months ago and guess what the results were??
There were positive matches for Jewish, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese ancestry all of which probably came from my maternal grandmother who died before my mum even married. I’m hoping to connect with my newly found Hapa culture somehow…..I’m now complete :)
This right here defines a melting pot! Amazing!!
glad you checked those DNA testings! because that is truly a remarkable background of cultures you have!
