Show Notes

While all three of us are Chinese, we were brought up under different circumstances so this time we sit down to compare our experiences growing up. How do we define identity? How much is our sense of identity influenced by external factors? How did we come to terms with who we are?

What's changed with age?  If you think about it, a lot of things can change with age, but what about things that you just COULD NOT STAND as a kid but you are now so on board with as an adult? Did your taste...mature and now you look at broccoli with hearts in your eyes? (Hey health is wealth.) Did you used to hate the rain, but find yourself not minding it at all and even think it's...romantic (lol)? Funny how these things change with passage of time.
