My brothers and I were born in Malaysia, but we had a nomadic upbringing in Sri Lanka, Ghana, Guinea, and Bangladesh. In 2010, we lost our old family photo albums in an unfortunate incident. This included all the photographs from our younger days. Since then it’d felt like we’d lost our childhood too — until I realized that we haven’t actually lost it all, for our childhood will always be a part of our memory and our history, and will never be taken away from us. There is much that we do not wish to leave behind engulfed by time and history, and so I created this blog back in October 2011 as a space to re-explore our childhood memories.
I consider this experiment to be one of nostalgia and remembrance. Since starting this project, I found that I am constantly rediscovering new things about myself and my family whenever I think back on these memories. Some people look forward to the future when learning about themselves, but I believe one can never truly know oneself without first having a strong foundation of one’s own history.
In more recent years however my interests in this blog have shifted towards my travels, both alone and with company.
Never really intended for this blog to have a large audience, but since you’ve found your way here, I wish you a warm welcome, and thank you for dropping by! Do say hello below!
