Chinatown -- a place of dragons

and dreams fireflies

and memories

Chinatown -- full of wonder

and magic fireworks

on New Year's Day and a delicious

smell on every corner

Chinatown -- where every day

brings something familiar

and something wondrously new

to a small boy

Chinatown -- home?

Kam Mak grew up in a place of two cultures, one existing within the other. Using extraordinarily beautiful paintings and moving poems, he shares a year of growing up in this small city within a city, which is called Chinatown.
