Being a rojak of more than one race more often than not leads to identity crises.
The peak of the ethnic conundrum is when you’re faced with the section in the form where you’re either forced to fit into a single check box or the greying ambiguity of ‘lain-lain’. However, there is an upside to being outside the box.
1.More ang pow lor!
The most obvious upside to being mixed is that you get more ang pows with the myriad of open houses and family reunions you attend. After all, who doesn’t enjoy more money?
Although attending several family gatherings to celebrate reaps in happy packets flush with happy paper, this is far from being the only benefit. You also get front row seats to not just experiencing different cultures, but you get to live them as well. Talk about the best of both worlds.
You possess the power to pull out all the stops when it comes to what you wear during the festive season. Plus, you don’t just have one chance to do it, you have two or more.
4.Feast of Worlds
Let’s be honest. Festive food is unparalleled. Being mixed, you get the firsthand chance to have a go at the diverse cornucopia of flavour of each culture.
5.The 1 Malaysia experience
Be proud of your multifaceted heritage. Wear it with pride all year round, not just during the festive season.
