Being half Chinese and half Malay, I've been exposed to two different sets of superstitions. As a child, I've never questioned any of it. I remember once I broke a glass dish during Chinese New Year celebrations - my mother was so angry and I felt terrible for days after...
the wet market to my place of work. The first time I had to walk round the market just to locate the queue. While I was there, I chanced upon a pig with its body slit open, from top to bottom. The poor creature was on the ground, all fours splayed out, innards on full display...

DEC 2009 - I have been with my caucasian boyfriend for the past 5 years and we broke up a few years ago thanks to the pressure my parents put on me, saying that he had no future, no money, he's going to cheat on me, etc. But despite everything, we got back together again. I'm...
Asians represent! We have that SWAG (something we asians got) that no one else has. Not only are we stereotypically intelligent but what better jokes and stories about our culture and family no one else can understand. Here is to us
basic social etiquette when they're in their senior years? It's as if when they pass age 50 they're like, "Nope, screw manners!"
See, I'm not exactly the skinniest of girls, but my aunts are all like "Wow, you have big body, like a cow!" I'm like, ".... Thanks?"
I think the...
and not see someone quite different from the person we are now?
I am not the type of person to make plans for myself or my life. I detest planners who tell me I need to make plans for myself and my loved ones. Who knows what may happen tomorrow? And if the worst happens, we...
so focused on results and efficiency? Everything must be accounted for in a quantifiable number. If you cannot quantify it, it is as good as not having done it. Maybe quantifying things makes it easier to make comparisons. And comparisons drive competition. And competition makes...

race. I want my children to look like me. I am my ancestors. I will be a part of my decendants. Thousands of years of generations worth of recessive genetics would all be lost in one generation if race mixing occurred.
I hated being Asian. I felt as if I was cursed with stereotypes that would follow me around from the day I was born til' my departure from this earth. I am constantly compared to other Asians and I was just longing so much to look like a Caucasian. My parents grew up in America...

Then the melody of the song starts to play... my sisters and I started humming along before we realised what we were humming to was the melody to Jingle Bells.
I love it when they fuse...

That sometimes, well-mostly- we are grade-oriented. Yeah I must admit that. Even my parents are. Some western people think it might stupid. Because yeah, you cannot master all subjects at one time and even get every single a perfect A for it. Well in fact, it's not only a...
