Not too many Asians can claim to have set up shops across every niche of small town USA, but the odds of you finding a Fujianese running a Chinese restaurant anywhere in the world is pretty good.
I grew up feeling like my parents were not emotionally there, nor did they love me. But they did, but I just could not understand the ways they showed it.
Job gone, there was nothing left to define who I was except that which came purely from my heart.

Take a closer look at some of the products around your home and it won’t be long before you see a “Made in China” label.
Over the course of my stay in China, I got the chance to meet all types of people. Some were wealthy while others faced poverty.

Some people like to stick to the same old food when travelling the world. You know the kind, those who insist McDonald’s, KFC or a good old all day English breakfast are the be-all and end-all of tasty cuisine, far safer than dabbling with the local delicacies on offer. While you can get that type of food in many places in this world, seasoned travellers (excuse the pun) might like to try something a little different.
