The collective autobiography edited by Alice Pung “Growing Up Asian in Australia” and the short story collection written by Maxine Beneba Clarke, “Foreign Soil” both illustrate the impact of family and cultural expectations on one’s identity. Both authors emphasise how the personal desires and beliefs of individuals brought about by the expectations imposed by their family, their culture and the society on them can serve as a motivation to change and establish their identity. The desire for acceptance and love can motivate an individual to satisfy a certain expectation.

Zauner provides the reader with a deep understanding of famous Korean dishes cooked in Asian households and how each dish has its own cultural meaning, forming an experience to the reader in which they feel a connection to the food and an attachment to the familiar emotions evoked by Zauner. She attempts to begin forming a stronger bond with her mother and her Korean culture, cooking dishes familiar to Zauner like gyeranjjim, cream soup, and tteokguk, that resurface treasured memories shared between the two. Her determination in comforting her mother with dishes that taste like home was futile because of the lack of appetite her mother was experiencing due to cancer.

A Hmong story cloth or Paj Ntaub, is a textile art that is embroidered and practiced by Hmong men and women to record and retell the stories of my Hmong community. And when I was little, I found one of my grandmother’s unfinished story cloths. It was raggedy, stained in one corner, and smelled of mold and mildew. The pink and green threads that were once so bright had become tangled and faded as it simply trailed of the embroidered art. On this story cloth, it told the story of desperate Hmong refugees crossing the Mekong river from Laos into Thailand.
Positive being on how special family, sharing and strength meant to their wellbeing, and negatives being hygiene, drug usage, and violence going on in their tribes.

As a child growing up in an Asian household, I quickly became aware of how different my parents’ style of teaching was when compared to my other friends in elementary school. I remember feeling very surprised to hear how lenient most of my friend’s families were. I could never dream of even asking my parents at that age if I was allowed to stay over at a friend’s house. Everything, for me, revolved around doing chores and getting good grades. It was also strange for me to see how close and warm my friends’ families were together; where there were dedicated nights for board games or nights where they would watch TV together.
