I definately get red samurai face depicted on my Uncle Ryoryu's kites.

Since I don't have a pic of his kites...

I do turn red (flush) and if I drink something that I am allergic to I actually turn a shade of purple and have some trouble breathing, that is probably why I don't really drink.



Oh, and I don't believe it is a halvsie thing it is a Japanese/Asian thing. My mother and my sister both turn red when they drink and I have seen other Japanese/Asians that turn red as well. It has to do with an enzyme deficiency and can also put you at risk for cancer if you drink a lot. There are articles on it, here is one,

i get red after the first drink or so...but it seems to go away if i keep drinking.. weird.

my (japanese) mum and aunt don't go red at all, but it's my ojiichan who goes bright tomato red even after a gulp of beer!

It does not happen to me at all, I can also drink a lot before I get drunk..

I have not been drunk in a very long time, 2005 I think.

I come from a long proud line of Japanese alcoholics, no turning red here (and luckily I can lay off the juice whenever I want too).

Don't let maeku fool you - girl can DRINK.



I personally turn into a beet when I drink, but I can hold my liquor pretty decently, despite that <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

The term most people around here use for that is "Asian glow." Unfortunately, I am a victim of the glow.

Haha, no worries. I think it was actually a combination of being hungover and just being plain old tired. Was quite a trip (not to mention really warm). Still, the fact that the bar was still going strong at, what... 3am? That was pretty impressive haha



@ninjew: Out here, we use the term Asian Blush. And hey! You're too young to know whether or not you get the blush! <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Tongue' />
