I’m Filipino-American and feel cursed…when it comes to drinking alcohol. After a bottle of beer, my face turns red and my eyes are bloodshot. Since I can remember I’ve always been like this, and to tell you the truth, I feel embarrassed when it happens. This is why I like hanging out in dark places so people won’t notice. Good thing is I’m not the only who experiences this. There’s actually a name for it…it’s called the Asian Flush.
If you’re like me, you’ll want to read the article, Asian Flush: Asians and Alcohol, to get a better understanding why it happens and how to deal with it. Sorry, there’s nothing you can really do to get rid of it. If anything, accept it and move on. That’s what I’ll try to do.
