I am a Foochow. Foochow are traditionally known to be in the areas of farming and logging in Malaysia. We are also known to be hardworking, esp the women :p. Our ancestors hail from province of Foochow, the southern east of China, near Taiwan.
Among the clan in the Foochow community, I come from the clan of Hockchiang, a subdialect of Foochow, known for its melodious sounding tune when we speak. Observers tells that Foochows are known to speak very loudly to each, almost in a high tone, but I guess it depends on individuals.. I dont think I speak very loudly at all :p. We are just special 🙂
Like all variations of culture and clans, Foochow do have some of the delicacies that very different from other chinese communities. And I would love to share of them here. It allows me to continue to learn about my roots and their love for food. 🙂
