Where is Teo Chew?

The question should be more like: "where does Teo Chew people come from?" or "where does people who speak Teo Chew originate from?"
1. Teo Chew people are all over the globe
2. Our language might just be more central to what bind us all, more than anything else.

Note: this is coming from the younger generation's perspective; especially from those who does not reside in China, possibly residing in Australia, America, Europe etc

Look for 潮州 on the map! That's the Chinese character for Teo Chew. In English there can be numerous ways of spelling depending on which language you're translating from.
