Where I come from...


Explanation:
The other answers are spot on with the dialect bit, but perhaps this is an alternative rendition for the context? People often use the phrase to refer to differences between places.

"where we/I come from ..."


Explanation:
"Bi uns tu hus ..."(Nieder/Plattdeutsch) = "Bei uns zu Haus(e) ..." = "back home ..." = "at home ..." = "where we/I come from ...".

The phrase is used as an introduction to a sentence about how things are or were back home in the speaker's part/region/area of North Germany or in their hometown usually in comparison to elsewhere.
