Happy Chinese New Year!

I write this on the first day of the New Year… for the first time I have moved out from home and have not celebrated Lunar New Year dinner with my family. I realise that there are so many traditions that my mother kept and just did and I just took it for granted.

Living alone meant that many of these traditions were only made known to me when people asked me at work if I celebrated..

It’s sad to know that traditions aren’t held so highly with me, as the first child of a migrant, will I in the future keep my culture alive if ai ever had children? Or do I make my own culture?

Becoming an adult doesn’t come naturally to everyone, no one teaches you how to be one at school, and this is what my blog aims to do. Through random rants, diaries, hallelujah moments and so forth, we journey onto this sacred journey called ‘Adulthood’. Let’s do it with Joy. *please note this website is NOT x-rated adult porn site! Sorry if you thought it was!
