Accidental Chinese Hipsters

So ironic, it’s not.

By Alison Kuo

I would like to make it clear from the beginning that I am a reverse accidental Chinese hipster. So, not an accidentally-Chinese hipster and not an un-hipster Chinese, but a displaced Texan, first generation half-Hong-Kong-nese person who likes to frequent dusty Chinatown markets. Also, I think it’s funny to tie bags to my other bags.
