︎ INTRODUCTION 


This is a self-organized research project which using food as an agent, to speculate the third culture in the Netherlands. It starts from a shared interest in Dutch Chinese (Chinese-Indonesia) fusion cuisines, to document and narrate different "in-between" cultural identities of Chinese Immigrants.

In the first stage of collaboration, we, as the interviewer, mediator and also the related character in this content, investigate the hybrid culture through filming, interview, food event, and social-media report (website and Instagram). ; However, based on a different perspective and focus of the narrative, I further developed an Emotional Documentary on this topic (< Dear Mrs.FoeYong>), which related to personal living experience in the Western country.
