My Family

I was born in Australia.

My mother was born in Vietnam.
My mother speaks Vietnamese and English to me.

My mother's parents were also born in Vietnam.
I call them ong ngai and ba ngai.
 
 My mother's family were refugees.  They came to Australia
when my mother was a baby.

 My father was born in Australia.  He tries to speak Vietnamese, but he's not
very good at it. 

Nan was also born in Australia, but Grand-da was not.

Grand-da was born in Northern Ireland.  He migrated to Australia when he was a young man.  He came to Australia looking for work.

I love my famly.

Having enjoyed Boyfriend and I and Misadventures of Kid etc as they were so candid and funny I wondered why you didn't continue on with them. And now you tell of your family background which is a delight. On the basis that both "boyfriend" and "kid" tell something of and varnish the truth I do hope you resume one or perhaps both again.
