Storyboard Text

  • When I was little, my parents used to take me and my sister to our favorite Chinese restaurant every Saturday. It was called Happy House and every week we would order a dish my parents nicknamed "fat mian mian." Happy House closed a few years ago during the recession. In the documentary, I would revisit the location and eat at the new place that opened there.
  • Every month or so, I go to visit my maternal grandparents' apartment in Monterey Park, where a large Chinese population resides. When I was little, my grandparents lived with us and largely raised me. However, as I entered the school system I gradually forgot Mandarin and now a huge language barrier prevents me from connecting to them like I used to.
  • Every week or so, my family goes to the 99 Ranch Market in Cerritos, a Chinese supermarket, to buy groceries. When I was little, we used to buy the peking duck for lunch every time we went. Now, we go there for cheap groceries and Asian snacks. My mom always feels more comfortable in the disarray of a Chinese market than in the clean lines of most American grocery chains.
  • On most Wednesdays, I meet in a cafe near my house to plan my Take Back the Tap campaign. While this cafe has mediocre coffee, its proximity makes it a convenient spot. Take Back the Tap allows me to make an impact on campus. However, it also is a huge source of frustration to me, as I find it's hard to overcome my classmates' apathy and connect with them.
