My face structure is more Caucasian. I have Caucasian nose. My hair is wavy, but it's dark brown (sometimes it changes to lighter color). As for my eyes, it's between Asian/Caucasian. My right eye is a little more Asian (fold), my left eye is a little more Caucasian (double). I have brown eyes. My skin color, it's a little darker than most Caucasian people, but lighter than most Asian people. I look about 60 Caucasian/40 Asian.
I think I look very asian but at times I don't know because I have a lot of random people coming up to me speaking spanish or portuguese and whenever I visit a asian country I get a lot of are you from europe?
My "asian" features are actually my dad's who is white and very german looking but has a very round face which I inherited.
I get random people asking me if I'm japanese so I chalk it up to everyones perspective is going to be different.
I know nobody would ever think my granny was prussian.
I'd say split in the middle but not really blended, it's funny, the lower part of my face looks more White (bone structure, nose) while the upper part of it looks more Asian (almond eyes, forehead).
I think I am more or less the same as you. My Chinese relatives tell me that too, but a lot of white people I meet haven't met enough Asians to be able to tell about the brow bone not being prominent or the eye sockets not being very deep with a bit of extra fat in the eyelids, etc.
I've had lots of people react in shocked disbelief when I tell them I'm half Chinese - both Asians and Whites. I must be one of the least Asian looking Eurasians there are, though other EAs can almost always spot it.
I'm a distant cousin of Singaporean pop sensation Dìck Lee. Bruce would have been a lot cooler but I'll take it.
From my impression most of people posting here on the forums say they are either equally mixed or leaning more towards the white side. Just curious, do the white features tend to dominate more often than Asian features in the EA population? What do you think?
I thought so too. What do you think, are either Asian or Euro facial features are more dominant than the other, or equally strong? For example, the Asian eyes, are they generally more dominant than Euro eyes? Are for example a big Euro nose (if there is in the family) more dominant than maybe a flat SE Asian nose? (don't take me too seriously, I'm just playing with ideas lol...)

^ I think it varies. I see a lot of Eurasians have asian-looking eyes, but still look pretty white. I guess it is definitely the whole face put together that determines what race the person looks more like. About the nose, my nose is high, but round..I guess that is why some people think I'm Filipino since I believe they tend to have round noses (rounder than Oriental Asians). It's just the shape rather than the height. I would have to say that my most asian feature is definitely the shape of my nose. It isn't straight up and down and very pointy like most white peep's noses are.
