出生并生活在一个穆斯林国家 Born and Live in a Muslim Country ...

My grandfather and father migrated to this country 
before world war II, and I was born in the 60s, 
it is never easy for a Chinese living in a country 
of not your native langugage and predominantly a minority, 
we don't learn the history of China but instead history of a foreign land, 
to be honest we all pretend to celebrate chinese festivities but never knew what there really mean, 
I have come to terms with all these of being a migrant Chinese 
after living in this country for 50 years.
On the dinner table, though I still insist my bowl and chopsticks, 
but I don't mind eating with my hands or cutleries, 
 at home we insist our children to learn the Chinese Language
but I never insist them to use a bowl nor chopsticks on the dinner table;
as a Chinese,
I think we all work hard to make a living and adapt to wherever we were born.,
and I think I am kind of proud of that.

Très belle photo, et très beau rappel de l'histoire!
Que c'est dur, même en M'sia d'être un "multi cultural country"!

A most worthy post - as rich and informative as a novel!

I do like your photos and how you framed it.
Enjoyed reading how you came to be in KL. I too often wonder in my country how people of other nations that live here manage to accept our customs.

Feeling at home is what matters and feeling integrated matters as well.
