    Default Ed and Al Asian?

    I have always wondered and even more so after watching The Van Halen Story DVD, but are Ed and Al part Asian? They showed a very quick picture of their mom and she looked Asian. Alex has always looked part Asian, but after the DVD I watched, it had me wondering. No biggie, just curious.

    And it kind of makes me wonder why they didin't take part in the concert. I'm sure if the Netherlands were ever hit by some sort of major catastrophe that they would be a part of something.

    But I think they do more for charity than any of us will ever know.

    It is.. Jan met Eugenia there (Indonesia was a Dutch colony) and brought her home to Holland. It's one of the places the brothers wanted go to on the 3 tour for that very reason.

    Correct. Their mom is Indonesian, and their father is Dutch.

    My friend (who is Vietnamese), keeps telling me that the VH brothers are half Chinese! What does he know, he's not even a VH fan! I think it would make more sense if they were part Indonesian. You know, they BARELY look it! Sometimes Al does, heck, and sometimes Eddie, but not all the time.
    I also heard that the hot chick that plays Lana on Smallville (Kristin Kruek, I think it is), is half Dutch, and half Indonesian. Then again, this same friend says she's half Chinese. I don't know what to believe?! Does anybody know? She, on the other hand, does look part Asian. It's definitely in her eye shape. How can she be half Asian, and have green eyes? Aren't green eyes a recessive trait? A huge majority of Eastern Asianers have the dominant dark eyes. She may have some Dutch/European blood on her mother's side to get those recessive traits. Who knows.

    Any longtime fan of VH fan would know EVH and AVH are Dutch/Indonesian.

    As for Kristin Kruek, a beautiful Canadian, is Dutch/Chinese.

    Ed and Al's mom is from Malaysia.

    Nice place, too.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."
