You know growing up in a very different societies and cultures was really interesting so growing up in hong kong. I found myself in this place. Where because i was mixed. I wasn't quite enough of either to be considered part of either community. So i in asian enough for the local chinese community. But i wasn't wide enough to be part of the white exit community. Luckily for me there is a fairly large community of mixed people in hong kong. Do just like international nature of the city.
