    CW Demographics - are you an expat?

    So are you like me from one country originally, but live in another?
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Not now, but from 01-05 I was in Shanghai on account of my dad's work. Also spent 08 in China but that was as a student, not an expat.

    No, am most definitely a pat at the moment.

    No, first generation immigrant of Chinese parents from Taiwan and Burma. However, I may become an expat in the near future, if my master plan to escape Outer South-West Sydney is to succeed. Mwahahaha.

    Indian. My forefathers come from the state of Rajasthan but we moved to Bengal a few generations ago. We also have business in Uttar Pradesh and had previously in Orissa. India is a lot of different countries within one country.
