Fresh Food Tuesday

Every Tuesday morning close to a hundred people line up outside this church in Liverpool, a suburb in Sydney’s south west. Far from the multimillion dollar homes and the stunning harbour views, it’s a working class suburb that is growing with new migrants and refugees. I am sure there are people living comfortably here. But... Continue Reading →

The famous and elegant Guggenheim Museum. Thousands of tourists have probably looked up at its central hall and taken a shot. It was raining the day we went. The queue to enter was long. We got soaked. But none of that mattered. The place was beautiful. There was an Agnes Martin exhibition that day. I had... Continue Reading →

The kindness of strangers 

"Speak English you f*cking Asians," he spat at us as he walked past. My mother and I were talking to each other in Korean at the time. We were waiting for the train, standing next to each other on the crowded platform when it happened. He came up nice and close. I moved to make... Continue Reading →

Names

Agnus. Angus. Ags. Aggie. Angie. I’ve become a woman of many names. They’ve been given to me by friends and family. By young people serving at juice bars and the people I see at work. Some names I’ve cherished. Others have stuck like gum on my shoe. They say your name is important. That it... Continue Reading →
