Singapore Diary

Exploring my identity as a Chinese has always been a big part of my life. Although my dad is Chinese, we speak English at home and I often have difficulty understanding my grandmother when she speaks Cantonese to me. My family is not traditional, we don’t celebrate Chinese New Year like every other Chinese family, all we do is to go to my grandmother’s house for reunion dinner.

So this time I decided to explore Chinatown in hopes of finding something that tells me there is a connection between this place, myself, and my identity.
