6. Ipoh for fun

Ipoh Thean Chun

 

Sleeping in the same room as your sisters, I could imagine how you might have grown up in such a close-knit family. Something so foreign for many of today’s smaller families because space has become a premium that no one is willing to give up. During this trip up north, no one really voiced it out, but we all missed you very much. Who else would translate Cantonese to Dad even as he tries to gesture and crack jokes with the hawkers?
