It happens always, since i started working 2 years ago. Sometimes, people kept wondering whether i'm a chinese, malay, or 'cindian'. I'm not surprise when a chinese speaks to me in malay, as i aredi used to it. During my days in hospital, some patients will say:"oh, i thought you are not a chinese". This situation happened again today, when a trainee said to me:"The first time i saw u i thought you're not a chinese, it was six months ago.And only today i can confirm you are."
As i'd said, it happens always.
