April 15 1969
This is my first birthday, although Koreans don't believe me - they think I must be three or four, because I look so big to them. Well, two things one ought to mention: I was big, but I would soon lose all that baby fat once my parents took me off the 3.25% homogenised milk; and Korean kids are much smaller than Caucasian or African ones, so Asians who haven't had much contact with foreigners outside the classroom have a hard time telling our age.
