C.A.P. = Cambodian American Princess also known as Cappy
A typical CAP is a girl who was fortunate enough to have parents that survived a civil war and genocide
and was able to come to America as a refugee
and make a good, respectable life for themselves.
These girls are humble, grateful, generous, gorgeous, quirky and smart; yet they can be complete and total snobs
, are secretive, weird and can be slow at times. Contradicting? Maybe.
Let me explain: Because their parents came to America with literally nothing with them but hopes of a better life for their children, these Cambodian American Princesses are spoiled to the core because Mommy and Daddy wants to give them everything they couldn't have. But, because the CAPs know their background and history, they are grateful towards their parents and treat them with the utmost respect and usually thrive in school with little effort (occasionally they will play the "uhhh, I suck at math" card to hide the fact that they are low key super nerds
Unfortunately, their outlook with the rest of the world is a different story. Because they have access to Daddy's account, they tend to be attracted to superficial matters. For example, they buy brand name for the sake of brand name or they refuse to associate with anyone who is not with the "in" crowd. In other words, they like to stick with their own kind; popular, rich, and not ugly.
CAP's are a minority in the Cambodian community, but you can usually spot a CAP in North Long Beach
, San Diego
, Diamond Bar
, they're spread out in West Los Angeles
, and they are also found in South San Francisco

Friend: Dude, you got it last time AND you just got the movie tickets.
CAP: I'm insecure because my personality is lame so I resort to buying people things so they can like me, therefore I got the check.
Friend: Oh yeahhh.
Friend: I almost forgot why we were friends in the first place. Okay, you pay.
