A place where there are more than a million dead people but barely 1,000 living people.
My grandfather is buried at a cemetary in Colma.
The term came about as an acronym for Young (Y) Urban (U) Professional (P) sometime in the early 1980's.
Yuppies tend to have at least Bachelors degrees (but more common, these days, graduate or professional degrees such as JD's and MBA's) and work in high paying professions such as Law, Accounting, Investment Banking, Engineering etc. Yuppies are known for their conspicous level of consumption and obsession with status symbols.
They tend to reside in urban environs such as Manhattan or San Francisco, but there are also suburban areas that are heavily populated with yuppies (such as Menlo Park/Palo Alto and Marin County, all in northern California).
Often times, Yuppies are "Big Hat, No Cattle" types who pay $2,000 a month to rent a swanky apartment and spend another $1,000 a month financing a luxury car, but at the end of the day have a negative networth because they are so in debt from their student loans and credit card bills.
For a perfect example of the yuppie lifestyle, watch the movie American Psycho.
Prospective Renter: Why are the rents here so high?
Landlord: Because the yuppies are willing to pay top dollar for the prestigous address and the fact that the building is right down the street from all the swanky restaurants, nightclubs, clothing boutiques and cafes.

An Asian (especially foreign born Chinese) trophy wife typically married to a rich non asian guy.
That nerd married a hot Ming Ming after he took his tech company public and made millions.
A neighborhood or city where a large proportion of the residents are of Filipino descent. Perhaps the most well known example of a Little Manila is Daly City, California.
I just got back from shopping at Serramonte mall in Little Manila.
A race of people who inhabit East Asia and parts of Southeast Asia and Central Asia. In addition, some scientists classify American Indians as members of the greater Mongoloid race due to the fact that their ancestors came from Asia thousands of years ago.
Typical of members of the Mongoloid race are straight black hair, charcoal black eyes, a short, roundish face, a low nose bridge, high cheekbones and epicanthal fodes that give the appearance of "slanted" eyes.
This man has Visible Mongoloid Ancestry

A RICH ass city in Marin County, California near Tiburon. Belvedere has breathtaking views of downtown San Francisco and in fact the name Belvedere is derived from the Italian word "beautiful view".
Belvedere is so rich that the streets there might as well be paved with gold.

The HOTTEST woman who has ever walked the earth. She is from Spain with dark hair, dark eyes, and light olive skin. She is truly the epitome of Mediterranean beauty.
God, what I would give to have just one hour with Penelope Cruz in my bedroom.
