So, I’ve been away and disconnected from the world for the past 2 weeks. All thanks to the Great Firewall of China. 😂 But it has been a fruitful journey and great social media detox. People in China couldn’t believe I don’t have a WeChat account (actually I do but I just didn’t redownload the app lol 😆).
Anyway, the purpose of this trip was to trace my ancestral roots (寻根). As a 3rd-generation Chinese in Malaysia, I’m glad and lucky to be able to tell you where my ancestors are from. Some of us don’t even know where are our ancestors’ origin. Definitely grateful that my parents still has contacts with our relatives in China and we were not that ‘long lost’ either. Besides that, their hospitality is 💯. We were basically treated like VIPs all day everyday. 😂
Tracing both my paternal and maternal ancestral roots has been fun. And it has made me be more thankful of what I have and where I am right now. 😌
