A derogatory adjective for Asians who are "Fresh Off the Boat." It is also commonly used for rich kids from Hong Kong who immigrate to another country and stick together only speaking Cantonese. They often dress in the most expensive clothing possible and favour BMW 325s and Mercedes SLKs. These are further appointed with a variety of Hello Kitty(TM) or other Japanese cute-and-cuddlies. They often have really bizarre english names taken from they think "sounds cool."

Is an acronym for "Fresh Off the Boat", and refers to new immigrants to a country (mostly Western). A phrase first coined in New Zealand in the early 90's by Polynesians to differentiate new arrivals (immigrants) from the old country (Tonga, Samoa, etc) from those with a Western upbringing. Now commonly used to describe any person new to a country, who is not well versed with its language or culture (mainly Western). Can be taken as an insult, or a term of endearment (eg; pride of culture).
