This is the Hood I Grew up In: The 626

Most people can’t quite understand or imagine the hood I grew up in. Hacienda Heights? San Gabriel Valley? “Is that like.. San Bernardino?? Umm like Pomona?” It’s the same as explaining how to pronounce my last name. I’ll just remain quiet and let you figure it out. But thankfully to the Fung Brothers, they’ve made an awesome video to show you a glimpse!

Here’s another Ethnic District I welcome you to explore. The area code 626 represents San Gabriel, Alhambra, Arcadia, Monterey Park, San Marino to Hacienda Heights, Covina, Rowland Heights. These cities include vast amounts of delicious Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean Restaurants. Yes, you will find other Asian restaurants as well.

This video portrays the culture I spent 18 years of my life. The restaurant and cafes we went to, the cross streets, there’s none out there like this. I admit there were times I wanted to escape as a young spring chicken but now I am proud of my roots. This explains who I am today.
