ANGELA TUNG, a longtime New Yorker who now lives in San Francisco, is, among other things, TNB’s resident expert on Chinese-American culture…which is a fancy way of saying she knows a good dumpling when she tastes one.
She loves her maternal grandmother, Puo-puo…and was haunted by the death of her paternal grandmother (and the genealogical issues it brought up).
Chinese New Year, she digs. Chinese Christmas? Not so much.
And if you think, after reading this, that she’s a negative person, you can bite me.
