Product Description

Chin Woon Pings ""Hakka Soul"" chronicles the dreams, ambitions and idiosyncrasies of her family, beginning with the death of her grandmother in pre-Independence Malaya. It was a tumultuous period when the occupying Japanese army had just been defeated, the British colonial government was losing its grip on the country and a Communist guerilla insurgency had broken out in the jungles of the Malay Peninsula. Her stories follow the familys move to the United States and a journey to China to visit her fathers ancestral home. The familys migrations are part of the global diaspora of the Hakkas, known in China as the Guest People. Chins poetically and amusingly rendered accounts of Hakka history, language and mythology derived from research and oral history are a moving tribute to the endurance of her people and their culture, and a paean to the incomparable Hakka cuisine.
