Hey guys! I’m finally back after not blogging for the longest time, but I promise I’m back for real and will be blogging more often now!
I have also made a YouTube channel not long ago. If you would like to check it out, just click on this link : http://bit.ly/29LuuzF
So, recently I have been seeing a lot of “Tag” type videos and blog posts and I thought that was soo interesting and that I would share with you guys my very own ethnicity tag!
1. What is your ethnicity?
I am 100% Chinese. I wish I could be more interesting and say that I am a mix, but no. I was instead blessed with just one ethnicity.
2. When was the last time you visited your country?
I live in Canada and have never flown to China or Hong Kong before, but I have been to Asia once when I went to Thailand with my sister and friends! I do hope to travel to China in the near future though!
3. Name one ethnic food you enjoy the most?
This is the toughest question to answer because I can’t pick just one. Hmmm… I would have to say wonton soup and fried dumplings would definitely be at the top of my list, but I also enjoy eating just plain rice. Barbecue pork is also really good!
4. Name one household item that best represents your culture.
My rice cooker..HAHAHAHA Okay, I’ll be serious, but I do think that when you see a rice cooker, you imagine a happy lil’ asian fam 🙂 I would say my gold jewelry case because the design on it seems very traditional and reminds me of the dynasty decade.
5. What part of your country are you and your family from?
Like I said earlier, I have never been to China so I was obviously born elsewhere. I was born in Canada and grew up in Vancouver, B.C. Just a couple years ago, I moved back to Saskatchewan with my family. My parents did grow up in China though. My mom is from a town near Hong Kong.
6. What is your favourite ethnic music/ song?
I don’t really listen to any Chinese music unless my parents are playing it, but I do listen to both Cantonese and Mandarin singers when I am looking for Chinese music to listen to on YouTube or my SoundCloud
7. Can you speak the language of your ethnicity?
Yes, I can speak Chinese, but not as fluently as before. I don’t speak as much Chinese as I did before with my parents and I basically go to a school with no other Chinese other than me. Guess I need to go back to watching Hong Kong dramas..
8. Do you have an ethnic name?
Yes! I do in fact have a Chinese name. It is written as 梁嘉儀 and pronounced lerng-ga-yee. This is not written on my birth cirtificate, but this is the name my teachers used to call me back when I was in Chinese School, and sometimes with my relatives as well.
So this was a very short, but sweet blog post just to let you guys know that yes, I am in fact still alive!
If you have any suggestions as to what kind of blog post you would like to see me write next, feel free to comment down below your ideas and I’ll be sure to check them out!
Until next time, hope you all have a beautiful and very magical day!
