How Thai-american are you?

Growing up in a Thai community in Eastern NC, and then meeting Thai-american kids from other areas, I realized that we all have had a similar upbringing.

"Are YOU Thai-american?" -- This quiz is intended for those who have one American parent and one Thai parent. Natives of Thailand who now reside in America may find the quiz very simple, or even stereotypical, but the stuff asked is hopefully very common knowledge for Thai-american children. And if you are just a fan of Thai culture, maybe.. just maybe.. we can adopt you as a Thai-american!
