I have not been updated my blog for a while. The reason is I was sucked into a book written by a Vietnamese author, Short Girls. It's about two Vietnamese sisters, Van and Linny.
I am also an Asian immigrant myself. Although i could not quite relate myself to being short/small, and being second generation of Vietnamese refugee, I smiled now and then while i was reading the book.
I also learned a lot of new stuff, things like "Asian Once-over". what is it? -" it's the accessing look so many Asian American girls had to give each other upon meeting or passing on a street. A way of gaining cred and territory. as if to determine which of them was going to be the alpha girl"
I do pay more attention to Asian girl than to non-Asian girl. i am not too sure what my reason is though. I picked this book because the author is an Asian American woman. I tend to make friends with Asian because I am more myself when i hang out with them...
oh btw, here is a picture of new appliances we bought last week, the new wall color dh just painted. i like the combination a lot. Next he is going to replace the carpet in our living room with bamboo hardwood floor. i hope ds will adjust to it well and not to have more bruises on his legs. hehe..
