“Hundred Daughters Hundred Patience Hundred Meals [百女百耐百膳] is my second self-published title, made in memory of my father and in celebration of his life as a restauranteur. The publication features a uniquely designed photobook + cookbook duet.

The photobook comprises 60 B/W photographs of a family road trip in 2012. The cookbook features 100 recipes I conceived after the passing of my father in 2018. The photobook and the cookbook, the road and the kitchen, serve as a hundred metaphors for my father’s life and our family’s history of migration and diaspora – from the rice farms of Kaiping in South China, to the sugar cane fields of Fiji in the South Pacific, to the HDBs of Singapore in Southeast Asia.”
