Fob
Fresh Off the Boat

Individuals who have immigrated to a new country, and therefore are new and clueless to the cultures, trends and interests of that new country. With this, most tend to limit to hanging out with other fellow fobs are those who are at least still exercising the same native cultural values and trends, in order to stay in their zone of social cultural comfort, and alienating themselves from others of different cultures and most things associated.

This term is however mostly apply to individuals who are between ages 13-40, maybe higher, as the most distinguishable feature of Fobs are their style of clothing, appearance trends and hobbies, which are the most prominent in that age range.

There are usually 2 types of Fobs..
1. Hip Fobs - most easy to identified, usually dressed in clothes and hairstyles and has hobbies and interests popular to their native country.
2. Home Fobs - harder to identified, they dress in very generic and typical clothing and appearance. You usually cannot tell they are fobs until you hear them speak with their accents. And they usually have less social life as compared to their "hip" counterparts. But with this, it allows them to assimilated easier with other cultures as they don't have any existing fob friends for them to limit themselves with to.
Sunny and Bobo sure are Fobs. They have immigrated here to the U.S for more than 10 years from Taiwan. Yet, they don't have a single non-Taiwanese friend, they dress exactly like an asian pop star, they only eat in Asian and fusion places and they still don't know enough English to be able to even converse.
