I was born in China and my father brought me over to Saigon, Vietnam, when I was still young. I grew up there until I was 14, when my family moved to Hong Kong.
My father was a very conservative businessman, but he prided himself on being adventurous and creative. After he died, I learned that he’d been through difficult times. People like that have to become creative in order to survive.
