People often seem surprised when they come to my house and see how 'Chinese' the decor is. Our lifestyles have become Westernized in many ways, such that Chinese-looking homes usually belong to predominantly Chinese-speaking households. I've noticed that Singaporeans (middle-class ones, at least) are increasingly giving English names to their children instead of only Chinese ones. It may be more convenient, but I find it strange to call myself by an English name, simply because I can't imagine anything more suitable than the one I already have.
Me and my sis agree that we'd like the decor of our future home to be country-ish, with Oriental touches. I love Chinese Ming vases, lantern-like lights, Japanese fabric and cherry blossom motifs. Those are all elements that I'd like to incorporate into my future home, plus a quaint antique Chinese dark wood dressing-table. The art on my walls would be modern takes on traditional Oriental art, such as ink paintings done in a different manner. My mum has a pale green Balinese vase with a swirly form that I want to steal. Don't tell her I said so.
