Content Yes, as if this site, Filoflow, Visual Streak, Visible Chinese and One Inch Punch weren't enough, I've now started another one called MangoVine. As you may have read from previous posts, I'll be moving over to Hong Kong for a year in a few days. My family have a home there in the New Territories and the plan is to spend a year there, but also travel to the other East Asian countries in that time.

Part of the reason for going over to Hong Kong is to gain a little more knowledge of my heritage as well as get to know the ins and outs of living there. Visiting the other East Asian countries is simply to make the most of being close enough to explore practically and cheaply. Since my profession is design, I'm also keen to cast an eye over the various cultures and try to document observations that I find interesting.

Content I was privileged enough to be interviewed recently by journalist and writer Hsiao-Hung Pai, author of the excellent book Chinese Whispers. The interview was for a short article about the site I created called Visible Chinese (Hsiao-Hung is also profiled on there), and also includes a little about the experience of living in the UK as a British Chinese person.

Since the UK Chinese Times is a Chinese language newspaper, the final article is in Chinese and you can read it as a pdf by clicking on this link:

Update : UK Chinese Times article scan with Mark Wu

The piece itself is aimed at Mainland Chinese, who may be interested in hearing about the site and finding out more about Chinese people in the UK, including what it means to be British Chinese.
