These are the chronicles on the journey of understanding the imagination of China by overseas Chinese. Well, that's me. 3rd (I think, someone correct me.) generation overseas-born Chinese, Teochew, with ancestors from Chao An 'zheng' (town) in Guangdong 'shen' (province) in China, born Singaporean.

Now rediscovering his roots amidst China's massive nationalist soft power world media vehicles whilst based in Melbourne. And realising that Chinese is a huge misnomer unable to represent the vast divides, ethnicities and stratas of China's 'official' list of 55+1 peoples (1 being the overwhelming han majority).
This blog mainly collects articles and information from news sources based in three countries - China, Singapore and Australia; and present them with a palatable, easy-to-read synopsis.
