In 1935, six-year-old Tzi Ki was taken away from his mother in Canton, by his grandmother, to live at Blair Road in Singapore.

This is the first part of David T. K. Wong's multi-volume family memoir. It traces of his tumultuous growing-up years from his birth in Hong Kong, his early years in Canton, his childhood in Singapore—living with the complicated extended families of his polygamous grandfather and father—to his lean and turbulent early teenage years in Perth after escaping from the Japanese Occupation. This is a unique psychological journey of a young man in the twilight of colonialism, searching for where he belongs.
