Hypothesis on "Asian Parties"

    Alright my Asian friends, I need help to confirm a hypothesis that breaks down the "gist" of what happens during a get-together of multiple groups of people hosted by asian people.

    Food is either served on a huge table, or along the floor of a hardwood floor

    1) More than one family gets together usually (2 is fine, but usually they're bigger)

    2) Kids are off doing their own little thing like playing games in the computer room or family room, raiding the toybox.

    3) Drinks for males are mandatory, you are offered/forced a drink even if you're the designated driver

    4) Your drink is always refilled without you knowing. If you do notice and attempt to reject, it is filled anyways.

    5) Someone always passes out drunk early after the first 2 glasses of XO/Black Label/Booze

    6) Kids are forced to greet the elders (40+) and forced to say goodbye.

    7) Main course is always Hot-Pot, Surprise Stew, or do it yourself Salad Rolls. with an optional side of bbq

    8) The teenagers get up and go out after finishing their meal, or get competitive in some gambling games (poker/majong/chinese chess)

    9) That drunk uncle that tries to get close to everyone

    10) Adults then will optionally partake in gambling, the rest sit at the dinner table and share stories and jokes. (Laughing is audible across the house) every winning hand will have the phrase "OOOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!!!" yelled out

    11) Karaoke is heard afterwards, often played very loudly, and drunk family members attempt to sing/yell into the mic and sluggishly follow the lyrics.

    11.5) People start going home, but the goodbyes turn into "One more drink" and they wind up staying... for another 2 hours

    12) It's time to go home, but at least 1 person has to stay behind because they're too drunk to drive/ they got their designated driver drunk/they fell asleep because they're lightweight

    Now, this is based on experience. I went to another friend's get-together and they're Cambodian and the experience was similar, is this absolutely true?

    Yes. This works the same with Mexicans, but our games are "Will we lose a finger", "Let's see how much shit we can ruin" and Hopscotch.

    This ones definitely true...and annoying. My mom still does this to me even when we are just visiting one person and they just look at me like I'm retarded. ahh parents.

    Vietnamese get togethers are more or less the same. Double points on the karaoke and poker, but depending on the family. Some will have cases of Heineken and they'll finish it all. My family get togethers don't have much drinking involved, only a few beers for the uncles. The guy cousins partake in poker with the uncles after playing games with each other on the PS3/Xbox. We'll also watch movies. The girl cousins talk to each other. There's the talkative Grandma & aunts. Spring rolls/Egg rolls are a must. Don't forget the Green Tea :wink:

    Most of my extended family is dead, and most of the rest are too mentally unstable to be at a party / get together :mellow:

    Some of this isn't true. But that is probably because I only hang with young peoples.

    I go to China a lot to meet my dads friends when hes on business trips.. Though it's more loud over there. People chew with their mouths wide open, they'll bust into you if your in their way.. Etc. China's a great place though! And I am 1/4 Japanese. But I haven't been to Japan for a long time lol..

    Not sure about the other ones but this one seems to be true. My friend from work likes to keep others beer glasses full and likes to get extra shots. :grin:
