=> Stereotypes of Pacific Asians as short and Dutch people are ridiculously tall. Indonesian loves rice and Dutch loves milk.

Some of the dialogues on the above are taken from "Child of All Nations (Buku Quartet)" by Pramoedya Ananta Toer.
Book recommendation from :iconmisschocoholic:

=> Overview of Child of All Nations

In his novel Child of All Nations, the Indonesian writer Pramoedya Ananta Toer offers insights into the world of European imperialism in Asia during its height at the beginning of the twentieth century.  Examining in depth the Dutch chokehold on the politics, economics, social infrastructure, and culture of the island of Java, Pramoedya’s book paints Dutch colonial policies of domination and superiorism in a manner that mirrors the attitudes and practices of the British and other European colonialists of the time, as well as of the Americans.

In Child of All Nations, Dutch oppression is underlined by a look at the exploitation of East Java’s peasants by sugar plantation owners and native and Dutch officials.  The book also highlights the racial caste system imposed by the Dutch through their laws and government and the power Dutch overseers can exert on Javanese peasants. 

On the other hand, even though at the time, the Dutch were expanding their control over the archipelago, Pramoedya stresses as a main theme the beginning of an awakening of a national conscience within the Indonesian people, represented in the observations of the main antagonist in the book, the Javanese youth Minke.  While Minke, like most Javanese of that time, had only the barest sense of a national unity that went beyond the Javanese people to include the other islands, he slowly became aware of it at first within the idea of the Malay language becoming a national Indonesian language.  Again this kind of issue, forging a national identity that goes beyond the local and regional, was one common to almost all colonized peoples of the time.  Throughout the book, Pramoedya has his characters keeping up with events elsewhere in Asia that herald the arising of modern national identities.  The beginning popular revolts against the Qing dynasty in China, Japan’s rise as a modern military power, and the Philippine revolt against Americans occupation, all of these forms of resistance against the west or, in the case of China outsider occupation, are mentioned as winds of change blowing across Asia.  Indeed the Dutch were mindful of these changes, particularly in Japan, which was viewed increasingly as a naval threat to the colony.

=> Social Strata Colonial Indonesia

The Dutch colonialists formed a privileged upper social class of soldiers, administrators, managers, teachers and pioneers. They lived together with the "natives", but at the top of a rigid social and racial caste system.[41][42] The Dutch East Indies had two legal classes of citizens; European and indigenous.

And what's the problem of being slant-eyed (they're pretty), rice-eating (it's delicious), spice-loving (when used properly they're amazing), milk-intolerant (ok, this one is a pity. I love milk) and short (tallness is good to bang your head on the door)?
Seriously, Neddy and the others need to get out more often > >

All the things that Mr.Netherlands said about the asians stung me, since i'm all what he said. lol.
My hight will never pass 5ft. So people would usually mistaken me as an elementary student when i'm in high school XD. There's also the reason that I look young. So I always get teased for being short.
And because of that. They always take advantage of me like i'm a kid!
And GO ate NESIA! I support you to the core!

Indonesia looks scary.
In Europe we also have a proverb wich looks like your "Where a duchtman has passed, not even...", but it was about the army of the Huns, (a scary barbarian army at the end ot the Roman Empire).

Tell me, do the Indonesians have any good memories about colonisation? I mean, our ancestors have obviously been jerks with you (and Belgium wasn't better with Congo), and I am ashamed of what they did, so if they did only one thing, I would feel a little better.
