Hongkie – a term used to describe a native of Hong Kong (not to be misread as white trash), an identity I will always hold on to.
Hongkie At Large
That’s me, author of this blog.
In 2003, I decided to drop everything and start a family and a new life in a foreign country called USA. I have since then moved from Hong Kong to California to Texas, then back in California, and now living in a suburb near the Windy City in the Land of Lincoln.
On my old blog, I wrote about how I feel being a Hongkie in the US when I first moved here. Some of it has changed, but some still holds true. I think being an immigrant or a foreigner, you just can’t help but always have some sort of detachment to the place you live in. But don’t get me wrong, I love where I’m right now, and I hardly think about moving back to my home town.
This blog documents my life in the US. Blog posts are written in Chinese and/or English depending on the mood and topic.
