Asian Baby Girl
Asian baby girl, abbreviated as ABG is a stereotypical expression for Asian girls, who love clubbing, dress eccentrically and spend their time with real or wannabe gangsters.
“Asian baby girl” could be interpreted in a pejorative way and a true ABG might either love you for calling her that, or claw your eyes out.
