Hot & Sour Blog: The Adventures Of A Chinese American Family (Hot & Sour) | 9thwaveapparel

Hot & Sour

This blog came about when I asked myself the question, “What am I passionate about?” I have a lot of roles that I play in my life (wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend), and I work a full time job as a scientist in a pharmaceutical company, but what are the things that make me come alive?

I made a list of the things that define me and that I enjoy doing, including my love of writing, and I realized that starting a blog would be the perfect creative outlet for these passions of mine. The purpose of writing down my ideas and experiences would not be to make money or gain a certain number of followers, but rather to create a space where community would develop naturally.

As I’ve gotten older and have more responsibilities, community is something that often gets pushed to the back burner, but it is an element of my life that I so sorely miss.

My hope for this blog is to provide content that is interesting and relevant, with a focus on my unique family, while encouraging conversation personal exchanges within this community. The word 家 in Chinese means family, both my own and the family I hope to create with this blog.

The name of this blog symbolizes a Chinese dish that has its roots and beginnings in China, featuring authentically Chinese ingredients, but it has evolved into a widely accept American dish, kind of like me.
