I'm assuming the definition of "Asia" includes the Indian sub-continent? As well as the Arabian Peninsula? And Siberia? "Asia" in any context is huuuuuge so I just want to make sure that was the idea that shallowlife had in mind...

In my study at university, Dutch and German students form a large majority of the year, but there's a lot of Chinese people as well! Shouldn't be too difficult this time, and it seems like a very promising theme!
Can't wait to see the first entries!

Well i aplogize if offending but i think shalowlife shoud know that Asia has a BIG country in terms of size and diversity called INDIA. There are no chineeze in there, so here is what i want to know, does he refers to ASIA as Chineeze or things related to China... like food, people..gadgets

Since one part of India is completely different from other, how will u determine if its reallly Asia or not !!

Obviously Asia means the entire continent. So Most of Russia as well as India and most or Turkey and the Arabian Peninsula.
This opens up the field a lot :)

Guys, calm down. This is just an internet competition.
I am sure everyone can figure something out. Dont take it so serious, just think about it a little and I am sure everyone can figure something out.

I dont consider Arabian,Turkey asia though, of course 90% Of Turkey is in Asia but its still part of europe, I am sure one of you guys can convince me otherwise though :)

Wikipedia - Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent, located in the eastern and northern hemispheres. It covers 8.6% of the earth's total surface area (or 29.9% of its land area) and with approximately 4 billion people, it hosts 60% of the world's current human population.

Now if that doesn't give us some scope I don't know what does

I somehow doubt taking a pic of one of my lenses will get me many votes allthough it would, technically, be following the theme. :lol:
I have the same problem as fallenembers.
