PostMimi: A Postsecret For Asian Americans

Monday, May 25, 2009

Correction: The first mimi posted wasn't actually from Karen herself, but was sent in.

I got an e-mail sent down to me from Karen who's starting up the blog/site called PostMimi which is dedicated to becoming a PostSecret for the Asian American community and although it's just started (there's a couple of entries) I'm liking the idea.

Here's the first Mimi sent in (which I'm sure might provoke a few thoughts):

And so we begin...The first Mimi

1. I love half asian people. They are incredibly beautiful, and I'm excited as an Asian woman dating a white man to one day produce one of these beautiful creatures.

2. I wish I spoke better Chinese so I could better communicate my life to my Chinese dad. My parents divorced when I was young, and so every couple of weeks when I meet up with him I have so much to say, and so little to convey it with.

3. It always feels so easy for people to mock a Chinese person, especially when their English is subpar. I think my parents are always a little scared of the world, that someone will harass them for their grammar and race. That makes me sad.
If it peaks your interest check out the blog/site down at and submit your own.
